ISPO Best Sport Product Gold Winner 2015 / 2016 for the Maplez DWS Z1 inline skate wheels
The DWS Z1 is a sleek, streamlined, high-performance and eco-friendly wheel system that weighs less than 155 grams, yet it’s highly durable due to its unique aluminum rim. The wheel has unparalleled strength and speed. Additionally, it requires less material and time to replace. The elimination of a non-recyclable plastic core makes the process of changing wheels better for the environment and it’s revolutionizing the skating industry.

JAKA BENEDIK
Benedik-Design, Founder (SLV)
Winner Consumer Voting ISPO COMMUNITY:
"The interchangeable rim/rubber concept is a perfect example for ecological engineering. It's also a great example for how to implement proven principles into the action sports industries. In addition, the user will carry less weight and spend less on the exchange of wheels."
 
 
ISPO Best Sport Product Winner 2015 / 2016 for the Maplez Racing Sports - BLT - 608 Bearing Releasor Tool
The BLT is a unique and innovative hand tool specifically designed for the quick and easy release of all 608 bearings. The performance-consistent BLT was specifically designed for one job: to improve skaters’ experiences when changing bearings. This tool eliminates hesitation, guesswork, and struggle from this previously irritating task.
