The Them 909 Danny Beer inline skates are a new mold of street skates for 2020. Designed by Jon Julio and Kyle Sol, the 909's hull is largely based on its predecessor the 908, but with upgrades. And this time the Them 909 Danny Beer is translucent and comes with the new Them turntable.
The construction of the boots has been carefully considered with thicker plastic in the most relevant places, both for better wear and for performance.
The spoiler is adjustable (vertically) to allow you to use it in an up position or in a riding position, depending on your preference for flex and support and allowing you to relieve pressure points so common when flexing. the ankle when grinding.
The Them 909 Danny skates are available with two different liner sizes for each shell size. Danny's 909 comes with the Intuition liner, a cult classic, known worldwide for its comfort, quality and responsiveness;explicitly designed to fit the THEM 909 boot. They have added other sizing options on this model, including an extra size in each shell (full sizing information below). The smallest liner of each shell is the same as THEM Intuition's current size. The larger liner in each shell size is a new size liner using lower volume foam to accommodate larger feet.
The roller skates come with a brand new frame, designed by Jon Julio and Kyle Sola, making the Danny model the first full Them Skate. The turntable uses a perfectly balanced low H-block for flat and anti-rocker setups.
The durable and low friction material makes the frame extremely strong and sliding quickly. They have custom made steel axles that only need an Allen wrench to unscrew them (like the GC FL3 Sickle axles), which means there is less possibility of rounding your bolts and reduced time spent installing new parts.
The 30mm ride height keeps the center of gravity low for more control. The frame is available in two lengths of 250mm or 270mm depending on the size of the hull and is suitable for up to 58mm wheels for flat lay configurations.
The shell sizing is available in 4 shells (XS, Small, Med, Large) and now includes two liner options in each. Two liner options in each shell allow for better fitting options when purchasing online. The shell size distribution is shown below.
The Skate Them is a simplistic idea from humble beginnings and proof that the real value is in the fit and overall feel of the skate rather than the gadgets and features. They are beautiful to ride, maintaining their speed with ease and encouraging the skater to perform grind tricks properly with their streamlined construction and refined design.
