ADAPT Hyperskate GTO Urban Skates 2021

From 576.07

The Adapt GTO Hyperskate is the brainchild of skate designer Pieter Wijnant. Being obsessed by hand build hypercars for most of his life, Pieter used his passion and knowledge to create the ultimate hyperskate. By using the same technology and mindset the hypercar industry uses, the Adapt GTO is the pinnacle of skate design. Inspired by the prancing horse, the name GTO was given to the ultimate skate. The GTO race series had no limitations and was banned from motorsports for being too dangerous. All GTO cars that were built were left with no other purpose than to raise the bar for every car ever made. The Adapt GTO is a skate with no other purpose than to raise the bar for every skate ever made.

 

The GTO shell is a Hyperskate diolene shell, finished with extra layers of black twill 3k carbon for improved responsiveness and a dark look. Like all Hyperskate models, the GTO features the Quattromount. The Quattromount is the most versatile mount in the industry as it fits both 165mm and 195mm frames as well as the new Symetrics Quattro S frame. The mount also provides an extremely low center of gravity, with the wheels as close to your feet as possible.

 

You can choose between several different setups to create your perfect Hyperskate.
On the one hand we offer the Symetrics Quattro S frame, on the other hand we offer several variants of the Symetrics Hyperframes.
Unlike regular frames, the Quattro S frame is mounted on the outside of the frame, using 4 M6 bolts. This greatly improves power transfer and overall strength of the frame. The Quattro S frame is CNC machined out of a solid block of 7000 aluminum and fits a 2x84mm and 2x90mm setup.
The Symetrics Hyperframe is now available in 4×80, 4×84, 4×90 and 3×110 variants. The Hyperframe is CNC cut out of 7075 billet aluminum and features a perfectly centered mount to create the ultimate feeling of control. The completely intact frame walls and triple bridge make sure that the Hyperframe is the strongest on the market. The Hyperskate GTO is completed with the Symetrics Superfast wheels (available in 80mm, 84mm, 90mm and 110mm) and Symetrics ABEC9 bearings.

The full potential of the GTO boot can now be utilized with the introduction of the Marathon Series!

The Marathon Series GTO skate uses the same boot as the Classic Series GTO, but can be completed with one of our new Symetrics Marathon frames and optional Symetrics Hybrid Ceramic bearings.

NEW: The Symetrics Marathon frames are available as a 4×100 and a 4x110mm frame option, that both use the 195mm mount of the GTO boot. The frame is fully optimized to fit under the GTO boot, so no adaptors or spacer plates are needed.

Like the Symetrics Hyperframes, the Symetrics Marathon frames are CNC machined out of extruded 7000 aluminium. The frames have intact sidewalls for optimal strength and control.

Perfect for Freeride, Fitness, Urban, and Powerblading.

The 2021 GTO has got several upgrades:

  • The padding in the heel pocket is upgraded for improved fit
  • The nubuck skin is reinforced with ballistic nylon to prevent leather stress around eyelets
  • The internal Quattro mounting plates are now made of aluminum instead of steel. This is not only lighter, it also gives an overall better looking finish.
  • The bottom 3 eyelet sets are now wider apart to allow for more pull on the laces
  • Softfoam added to top of cuff area for improved comfort and fit

Airmesh lining provides more comfort and cushioning, while Onsteam lining provides increased responsiveness and a direct feeling.

The GTO is still made with our trusty nubuck 1.3mm leather. In 2020 we switched from 2mm to 1.3mm nubuck. The thinner material means the skin is just a little bit more flexible, which results in a better fit. While the older GTO model needed some break in time, the GTO 2021 forms to your feet straight out of the box. In short, the nubuck v2 leather provides the same strength and durability but with a better fit. The straps are also single layered to increase fit and comfort.

Lining material:

OnSteam lining is a thin but resistant material that was specifically designed to be used in sport-specific shoes. It gives great responsiveness and a direct feeling. This material will take your skate to the next level.
We recommend this material for skaters that are looking for the most responsive option. It is only recommended for advanced skaters and heat molding is advised to ensure a perfect fit.

Adapt Sizing Chart

Adapt skates fit like a tailored shoe. While in most skates people need to take one size bigger than they wear in shoes, in Adapt you will need your actual shoe size. Of course, measuring your feet can be really difficult, so if you really are in doubt, feel free to contact us about this. If you have measured your feet and are unsure of the results you’ve got, please contact us as well. Overall you can take one size smaller in Adapts compared to other skates. If you have already downsized by toe-cutting your skate or using a thinner liner in it, you will not be able to go down one size.

    In order for you to understand and appreciate what the ADAPT Hyperskate GTO is, you’ll need to understand it’s creator, Pieter Wijnant and his love for Hypercars, but before I get into that, let me give you a background on my skating style.

    First, let me state right off the bat I am not an aggressive skater, or a slalom skater, and definitely not a recreational skater. The type of skater that I am is mostly fitness, speed, and a little bit of crazy… all in that order. I am also a motor/petrol-head. What I look for in a skates is what I look for in all of my cars; performance, precision, handling, all of which are found in the way Pieter builds these Hyperskates.

    The moment I took my GTO Speciale (2019) out of the box, my first impression was how solid they felt. Is like you are sitting in your brand new Corvette for the first time; you sink into the bucket seat, you touch the steering wheel, and the way the car feels around you, is just… solid. That’s how these skates felt in my hand. And then you start looking at the beautiful workmanship; that gorgeous high-end all-black-out leather, the understated yet very effective use of the high-low set up, the subtle Z/GTO engraving on the back; the whole skate just radiates power.

    The use of materials, the durability of the Nubuck leather, the carbon fiber layers, the lining, the Hyperframes, they all combine into a work of art. Even the waxed laces on these skates are, without doubt, among the best on the market. I must admit I’m constantly fighting the urge to hug these skates and call them “my precious”.

    I took these skates to the rink (since I live in South Dakota and the weather seasons out here is limited to early winter, winter, more winter and road construction); and my goal is to have them broken in by the time the snow clears and I can take them outside, where they belong. I must admit, the break-in process was something I was expecting, but still necessary . Heat molding them will speed things up, but I still went thru some growing pains before they fully molded around my foot.

    Be warned, it is a stiff ride; best comparison is if you go from driving a Cadillac to a tracked-tuned Corvette. The use of the Nubuck leather and Diolene shell, with that unbelievable Symmetrics Quattromount frame gives you a stiff “ride”, but the responsiveness is crazy quick, and the control is downright unbelievable.

    Since, at the moment, I’m limited to where I skate, I use the indoor rink for mostly speed skating (when I’m allowed); and that’s one of the types of skating styles my GTO is made for. I keep comparing them to performance cars because… well… they are performance skates. A great example is when I take the apex line with my GTO. With other skates I was very limited. Even when I upgraded the frames on my old skates there was always a “wiggle” feel when I take the turn too fast. The frames on my other skates are just not strong enough, like taking a fast turn in a car that’s not built for it; you fishtail, lose traction, spin out and hopefully you won’t hit anything before you come to one scary stop. I needed something better.

    With the Adapt you quickly power transfer into position for the turn, push for more speed, drift into the Apex line, and then push for more speed in one solid fully controlled motion. This is where the high-low set up is use to it’s full potential. The combination of 90A 2x84mm Adapt Superfast wheels in the front, and 2x90mm wheels at the back, with the Quattromount frame gives you the stability and traction you’ll need to drift into those tight turns instead of eating it. These skates are not for the faint of heart, and although they are pricey with they way they are built, every penny is worth it.

    The Adapt Hyperskates GTO Speciale is the vision of someone who thrives for perfection. Whom by looking at the new 2020 Adapt line up, is constantly pushing the boundaries to create the ultimate skate. There is a mad-genius at work here, and because of that, anything you’ll get from Adapt is equally mad.

    Hi,

    I bought a pair of these in a size 41 with the 4x84mm frame. I have a wider foot and normally have to go up a few sizes with powerslide (43-44), but there was lots of width in the adapt and that let me get a more precise fit. If you visit the adapt website there are templates that you can print to sketch your foot on.
    The skates are very beautiful, even more so than the pictures. The craftsman ship is obvious. The quality of the leather is excellent, they even smell great! I have never had a skate lace up so nicely. The leather is supple around the laces and the waxed laces hold the tension and allow for precision lacing. The cuff of the boot is extremely stiff, and I am still breaking it in after 25+ km skating in these.
    The 4×84 frame is a great length to allow power transfer and still have maneuverability. It is very stiff and has excellent power transfer. The matte finish on it is also quite beautiful.

    If you are considering buying this boot to use an endless frame with it, I recommend that you contact endless and discuss with them. I learned from them that the endless frame does not fit as well on the adapt boots as it does on Seba/FR products; it tends to sit a bit too far forward or back for their preference (but it is still possible). They can send you pictures.

    For the wheels, I do find that they are a bit too hard (90). They are fast, but this isn’t the most comfortable ride when the pavement is rough, so for my next wheels I will look at 85a. If you are ordering the skate, you can maybe ask for a custom order for different wheels.
    Overall I am very satisfied with the Adapt GTO, it is a truely beautiful skate.
