Ground Control Frames 2019 | Inline Skate Hardgoods

The MEGA Frame

Our new lightweight street frame that allows up to 64mm wheels flat rockered.  The MEGA has a more traditional height, offering a low center of gravity and familiar balance on topsides and h-block grinds. The h-block is designed to wrap around the inner wheels to help safeguard skaters from the dreaded wheel bite. Wheel spacing allows for full access to UFS bolts making frame change/rotation a breeze. UFS mounting points have been beefed up to 9mm thick to increase stiffness and prevent any unwanted fracturing.  Streamlined sidewalls, aluminum spacers, and our 8mm sickle axles complete what shapes up to be everybody’s favorite frame for grinding ledges and carving bowls.    

 

Available in Black, Ivory, Maroon, and Dark Grey

The BIG Frame

A collaborative effort with team riders and our design staff, the BIGs are built to offer GC’s trusted street attributes blended with smooth roll of a recreational frame setup.  By increasing the height of the frame, increasing the width of the h-block, and lowering the side walls and outer edges of the center groove, we are now able to offer a frame that allows a maximum wheel size of 72mm that skates like a street frame.  Complete with aluminum spacers, your wheels will roll smooth and fast with minimal resistance. 

Ground Control will also be offering matching 72mm/88A wheels with a profile that fits perfectly to the raised groove, offering an impressive level of wheel protection to keep from biting on grinds.

The NEW and IMPROVED Featherlight 3 features INNOVATIONS that make for a SMOOTHER ride, FASTER grind and STRONGER frame...

 

1 + 2 = 3 is the simple concept which stands behind GC's Featherlite 3 frames. The FLT-3 combines the metal axle spacers of the FLT-1 with the unmatched grinding feel, light weight and strength of the FLT-2 frame. Even with the axle bolts tightened all the way the wheels are still spinning freely and everyone on our team was blown away what a difference it makes and how much faster these frames are.
