Skorpion USA introduces a fun new series of skate models with bold colors and accessories. Designed with the stylish skater in mind, the exciting new colors and design are poised to turn heads on the street of skaters and non-skaters alike. Available in blue, green, pink, black, silver, orange and yellow, Spinners can also be added to the wheels for a customized rim look. The introduction of the colored series of Skorpion skates is a collaboration of skating fun and urban styling.

Designed in the United States, The Skorpion-Quadline model is targeted towards urban skaters who desire the lightness of a speed skate, the shock-absorbing qualities of a recreational inline skate and the stability of a roller skate.

"Skorpion is the reinvention of the clamp-on skate. It has a retro look but is fabricated using the latest in Du Pont® technology," says Lee Cole, CEO, Skorpion USA Ltd. "The new accessories are fun and lets the individual put their own stamp on the skates."

With a classic American look, the Skorpion-Quadline model offers the ultimate in performance and styling. It allows skaters of all ages and skill levels to obtain maximum enjoyment with stability due to its independent suspension system. The wide wheelbase of Skorpion-Quadline provides exceptional stability with its 4 X 100mm wheels placed around the footplate surrounding the feet. This intelligent design lowers the skater's center of gravity by 50 percent of a conventional roller skate making the Skorpion-Quadline, the lowest profile and most easy-to- balance skate ever produced.

"The new Skorpion® Quadline™ is new and refreshing. Possibly a fitness phenomenon and the next great leap in skating!" says Scott Olson, Inventor, Rollerblade® and Rowbike®.

Skorpion also has the Multi-Terrain model designed to provide skaters with all the fun, look and performance of an Off-Road vehicle. Using patented design features and a funky off-road look, the Skorpion Multi Terrain model provides the ultimate in off- road performance.

Skaters can now go beyond the traditional boundaries of skating. With rough terrain in view, the skates can be used on uneven concrete surfaces, cobblestone paths, boardwalks, grass, nature trails and even around BMX bike tracks. Those who would rather skate on the more traditional surfaces such as footpaths, pavements, car parks, rinks, and parks and bowls, can still do so with this skate.

Both the Quadline and Multi-Terrain models have a convenient and adjustable "Step-In" footplate that accommodates a wide range of shoe styles and sizes. The skates come in two sizes; Small: US Unisex size 4 - 7 and Large: US Unisex size 8- 12. Having only two sizes, it also simplifies a retailer's size purchase decision and investment risk.

Skorpion skates have been touted as the most exciting, hottest new skate craze to hit the international market in recent years and is now finally in the United States. Acknowledged by skaters for their stability, functionality and cool contemporary styling, skaters are enjoying the excitement and adventure of the Skorpion skating experience.
