PowerDyne Reactor Neo Plates
This setup comes with the Reactor Neo, which is made of strong aluminium and shares many design elements with its big brother, the Reactor Pro, at a fraction of the cost. The 10 degree kingpin angle offers explosive power - providing superior push and acceleration at the end of every stride - while the high-rebound, urethane cushions make the Reactor Neo responsive, agile and stable. The kingpin features click-action adjustment for precise customization.
The 495 is completely made out of leather, also the lining/inside. This means the boots will not stretch, but form around your foot.
We offer 2 different widths of boots to make sure you can get your favourite skate in a good fit. The D/B is the standard wider version, and will be loved by skaters with squared off toes. If you have slim/narrow feet, you will feel best in the B/AA version.

I've skated in these boots for 8,5 years now and they still fit perfectly. I love their flexibility, yet firm fit below the ankle; making me more agile. I've considered an update, since they are 8,5 years old, but updated the plate, so I could still enjoy my lovely Riedell Torch boot.
