Comments: Finally, a skater friendly skate. I followed Alkali's baking instructions on youtube and I'm impressed. Heel and ankle lock I found superb. Gone are other skates, "Bump" or "Bloody Ankle" I was supposed to, "Get used to." The quality built chassis and angled boot made my feet more responsive, and faster. Boot is top shelf quality. I'm a believer. Buy them. Period.

Comments: I bought these because they seemed like a great price for all the features and they look sick. I was not disappointed. They really do look and feel awesome. There's a lot of protection and they are pretty comfortable after they are broken in. I love the stance and wheel set-up, I feel that they have helped improve my speed a lot. I actually was riding on these to work every day during summer (on separate outdoor wheels) and they have held up very well. I just finished my first season of using them in games and the wheels they came with are still in decent shape too. I highly recommend these skates and I'm definitely going to stick with the Alkali brand. You get so much more for the price than with the Tours and Missions I've had in the past.

Comments: great skates very light broke in during first play I'm a bigger player and the skates are the best the stock wheels could use a upgrade but other than that a+++++++
Comments: These skates are awesome. Got the Mission A5's a few months before...needless to say I had to buy these and they are worth the money. Super comfortable and fast. Did take some time to get used to the 80mm wheel set up and I think acceleration is a little slower than the hi-lo but i would say top speed is better. Overall quality skate and well made.
Comments: Comments:Awesome skate. Broke in quickly after baking for the nine minutes. Boot forms well to the foot and I love the heel angle for aggressive skating. The one thing I would change about this skate is the wheels. I used the Labedas it came with for about four games and they were nearly toast on the second one. I weigh about 220lbs so it was bound to happen with such a soft wheel. Other than the wheels the skate is amazing. I would definitely buy another pair if these wore out. I give them a solid 9 out of 10; 10 out of 10 if I didnt have to replace the wheels.

Comments: Wow, these skates are incredible. Great looking, super fast, best skates i've owned. It took a while for me to break them in, but I went from a pair of skates i'd had for 10 years to these babies. I play on an indoor "court" that has a concrete floor which rips up the labedas it comes with a little too fast for me as i weigh 190lbs, so I switched to labeda 76MM 80A and they are perfect.

The Alkali CA9 RPD Roller Hockey Skates are the flagship skates from Alkali Hockey. Alkali took the boot of the 2011 CA9 and made some great upgrades by adding more foams and composite inserts in key areas. They also increased the size of the L pads in the ankle area helping eliminate heel lift. The CA9 RPD rolls on the Alkali Magnesium frame and Labeda Addiction wheels with swiss bearings. These paired together will give you great response with grip and breakaway speed.
The Alkali CA9 Roller Hockey skate is one of the premier skates from Alkali Hockey. Taking what they learned from over 20+ years in the roller hockey industry, the founders of Alkali have created a pro level skate that is surely going to take your game to the next level.
