Independant Corsa Review

Just to drop a note for feedback on the recent purchase of the V. Corsa boot size 14. I mounted these on Verducci XR 13.5 single void frames with 1.5mm tabs both feet. 80mm 85A Labeda HWY Patrol wheels, seasoned Swiss Bones wheel Black hole "Gel" lube. Fit , the length is perfect, I wear a 12.5 US street shoe. I 've been in BONT boxers for about 2yrs. with lots of outside ankle cutting ( after cutting the boot apart I solved that problem) the lack of support and tight lacing became a constant issue. Although lots of quirky trouble with this set up I have gained incredible balance from it all and a huge DP . The Corsa very snug amazing support without tight lacing. The heels seems to set me foward very slightly in the center of the frames. So it gives a solid under push feel and strong push out through the center of the foot . The Boxer really had me somewhat locked in to heavy heel pushing (good crusing but sucks for sprint speed). The ankle function was almost perfect no cutting.The combination really allowed me to tweak my entire form without struggling with boot fit/support issues. Finally with this boot I can really put the power to the ground through the frames without the boot or my feet yielding or complaining.The objective side was 10k solo speed 18:35... best with the bont boxer 19:20 and I could never repeat this. I skate alone 99% of the time so the only spectator is my wife. And a confriming "Wow! your already back from your skate!" says it all. thankyou , Richard@nettracing, peace, chad


I have a real problem with these Verducci boots. I just did a 16 - 20 mile skate and at the end of the trail I didn't want to take them off...... they felt at least as good at the end of the skate as at the beginning. I stopped halfway to re-lace them good and snug....... no hot spots at all.... not one. I know that I couldn't go smaller as Donna's size 39 Corsa's put some real pressure on the end of my big toe..... and apparently the 40 was just right. These boots literally feel as though they were molded just for my feet. I found I could be more aggressive without feeling that I was on the edge of control. More then a few of the ICB racing team have spent some serious money on custom ????? boots this year and I still hear complaints about pain. It seems to me that even if you didn't spend 700.00 on boots you're going to skate better without pain then with. On another note, I read your addon to you clap frame review and I find I do pretty ok in a pace line with the Maple claps but where they really work for me is on long inclines where I feel I can do them with less fatique with the claps. I do mostly distance skates and they seem to give me a little more for a little less perceived effort. I REALLY LOVE THESE BOOTS, Lorenzo
