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. Rest assured, Skate-Tec has their skaters covered through the creation of the Skate-Tec Nagano.
Designed by the designer and founder of Maple, this blade features all the same concepts and construction as the MapleZ Gold, with a shiny new finish!
Nagano vs M-Wave Flex:
The tube profile of the Nagano is comparable to that of the M-Wave Flex. This means they behave in a similar way, and are especially suited for lighter riders.
The height of the Nagano is similar to other brands. It is 5mm lower than the standard M-Wave. By default the Nagano can be tuned to a lower cup height.
The top of the Nagano is curved from the tip to the back. The curved tip distributes the stuffness to where it is needed most; in the middle.
Having a curved top makes the tube hold its form better, while keeping enough flex for control.
If skaters require heightened cups, the Skate-Tec Nagano can deliver.
