WE HAVE SENT OUT THE 7th ROUND OF INITIAL TEST SAMPLES OF THE HOUKIE TO SOME OF OUR TEST TEAM MEMBERS!
THE MISSION IS TO GET AN INITIAL FEEL FOR THE RUBBER COMPOUND WE USED AND TO LET US KNOW WHAT PROBLEMS THEY RUN INTO!
Here are a few pics of what we have seen with the testing of the last compound we molded…… We are down to 4 different compounds that we will be choosing from to create the Houkie.. They are:
Houkie B Houkie C Houkie PC1 and Houkie PC2
So far after about 40 hours…. there is some wear on the sole!! So we are on the right track and almost there!! Material is due in a week or so of the new stretchy but durable material to make new test pairs with! Here are some pics to show how they look after 40 hours…..
Obviously…. if this 40 hours of skating was on a shoe with no protection….. it would be shredded!! The Houkie is here to SAVE you!!
WE WILL POST PICS AND REVIEWS FROM THE TEST TEAM ONCE THE TESTING IS DONE OF THE FINAL 4 SAMPLE COMPOUNDS WHEN TESTING HAS COMPLETED!!
LOCAL SKATERS TEST THE HOUKIE!!
