The EDEA PRELUDIO is a High Quality way for the for Serious Beginning Roller or Figure Skater that prefers a mid stiff construction Skate to have the support and control that ALL EDEA Skates offer, but at a very good price point for the Beginning Amateur Level Skating Boot. The Light Mid Stiff Construction with Beautiful Leather finish outside and Padded MicroFibre Lining. The EDEA PRELUDIO is made with Revolutionary NEW Ultra Lightweight Materials, which means the PRELUDIO is about 25% to 45% lighter than comparable Skating Boots. EDEA Skates are Beautiful Italian Skates, even at this smaller price point.
The MicroPerforated MicroFibre AirTech Lining is Anti-Allergic, Anti-Bacterial, and Dries Very Fast. The Anatomically Shaped Padding and Formed fit of the boot is shaped by the Thermoformable Structure and provides the best in foot contact and control while giving the movement range to allow Great Performances. Other features are the Rounded Heel Shape which more evenly distributes the weight and adds torsional stability, the Full Wrapped Padding, the Shaped Extra Padded Tongue, the Tongue Tab which controls the position of the tongue, and the Sewn in strong forged long Hooks. The Footbed has direct Ventilation and is torsionally rigid but with just a bit of vertical compression, that creates a lower center of gravity in the Skate, creating a lower displacement which greatly increases stability and control. For Roller use, EDEA strongly recommends the use of Power Wedges to be installed between the curved Skating Boot and the flat Roller Frame to keep the foot in it’s natural and to NOT Deform the Boot. A major advantage of the Power Wedge is that it provides VERY Secure CONTACT between the Boot and Skate Frame. This gives more power to each push and stroke, thus the name POWER WEDGE. It is not necessary to use the power wedges on a Roller Frame with a sloped front.
In most cases the Break-In period is just a few hours, not days, weeks, or Months, but the most important Features are how LIGHT and COMFORTABLE the EDEA is.
The Sizing of EDEA Skates is very consistent for each size and between models. Frame sizing for Roller Skates to EDEA Skates should be completed with much care. In Roller Skating different types of Skating require very different positions of the front axle in relation to the ball of the foot. When Mounting EDEA Skates, please follow the correct Roller Frame Mounting procedures for all EDEA Skates. At Discountskatewear.com there are professionals that are experts at mounting the High performance ATLAS or Roll-Line Roller Frame of your choice. The Sizing and Mounting information is available online.
EDEA Skates fit a great majority of Skaters (because of the newly designed shoe lasts), right out of the box, but some have need of special accommodations to give that perfect fit. EDEA Skates ALL have a Thermoformable Structure which allows manipulation of the boot to give the perfect Custom fit without the Custom price .EDEA Skates DO NOT use gel packs (the reverse of a freezer ice bag) that are heated in an oven, then the foot inserted to shape the inside padding of the boot only, this method allows change and movement of the gel in the pack over time, which is not a good thing. EDEA Skates DO use very high tech materials (similar to a carbon fiber or Kevlar material) which can be shaped using Heat Guns and Special Shoe Lasts, in very specific locations or general widening or narrowing of the Skating Boot. Once the boot is re-shaped, it will stay in that shape, until the shaping process is changed again. Discountskatewear.com provides this very special Custom Fitting service.
