Transitioning from the MapleZ Gold

Some skaters have tried to switch from the MapleZ Gold to the EVO blade line. Many were able to do so, but a handful of skaters found the transition to be difficult. At this time, MapleZ Golds are no longer in production.

Nagano 341.70 4

Rest assured, Skate Tec NL has these skaters covered through the creation of the Skate Tec Nagano. The Skate Tec Nagano is a sensation reminiscent of Maple’s Gold Blades but with a runner and pre-bend found on the M-Wave, Argon and QuarQ models, which means exceptional glide and consistent pre-bend. The blade features the same concepts and construction as the MapleZ Gold with a shiny new finish. If skaters require heightened cups, the Skate Tec Nagano can deliver.
