The 18K Youth Ice Skates feature a Max Armour V quarter package with grade A nylon composite embedded zones. This quarter package provides optimum light weight structure, stability and durability. The dual zone liner with Duratex grip and Clarino enhances durability with increased heel lock, while the vented lightweight carbon composite outsole increases torsional rigidity, maximizes energy transfer and delivers a reactive feel. Also, the 18K Youth Skate has a Pro Felt and EPE foam hybrid tongue. Its molded shape along with its foam core provides a comfortable fit and minimizes tongue twist.
