Salomon skates with USD Carbon soul mod
I’ve probably done about 15 of these modifications for myself and many others. As well as countless other Salomon and other skate brand mods.
The Salomon ST boot is arguably one of the most comfortable aggressive in-line skates ever released.
For many it’s biggest downfall is it’s outdated soul-system. Though many people still prefer the classic stock boot.
With the release of the Deshi and USD Carbon skates, a soul plate was developed that made modernizing Salomon STs very practical.
With the soul plates minimal weight and shape enough material can be removed to fit these to the bottom of Salomons and give them the ability to grind like any modern skate on the market.
For additional comfort on non-UFS boots I drill a flat hole for the front frame bolt receptor. This makes the receptor flush with the bottom of the boot so that it doesn’t dig into the ball of your foot. It’s not necessary to do this for the rear receptor as there is a heel shock pad over it:

I charge a flat $50 rate if you are supplying the boots and soul plates.
I can obtain many Salomon models in many sizes very easily.
Carbon soul plates can be purchases for about $35 brand new.
That’s all for now,
