The Razor Cult model skates is their classic design which still remains popular today as they continue to release new versions of it. Aggressive skaters like the Cult because it is their lightest skate design and it still skates extremely well no matter your skill level. All of the parts on the Cult can be replaced and are usually always available for purchase in a variety of colors (except for the boot shell itself).
Some rollerbladers choose to replace the removable Razor liners that normally
comes in the Cult skates with liners by other brands such as Jug. Razors usually has their Cult model skates come stock with a fairly basic liner, so depending on your preference an upgrade to aftermarket liners might provide you more comfort and support.

Shell Size Ranges The shell sizes for all Razor skates run in size ranges, which makes it easy to upsize or downsize as long as you are staying in your determined shell range. For example, sizes 8 and 9 share the same exact shell size and the only difference is in the size of the liner itself.
is very easy to remove and replace your buckles.
Remove the buckle and buckle receptor by using a phillips screw driver to unscrew the
buckle screws and a flat head screw driver to hold the inside t-nuts
2. Attach your new buckle and buckle receptor and tighten the screws.
Cuff Removal and Replacement
It is easy to replace your Razor cuff with a new one. Razors has new buckles already attached to the new cuffs they sell, so you do not need to remove the old buckles.
1. Remove your liner by pulling it out of the boot shell.
Remove the cuff bolts by unscrewing them
with an allen wrench. If the inside t-nut spins (which happens
sometimes) you are going to need to use a wrench or some type of big
style pliers to grip it and hold in place so that you can unscrew the
If the inside t-nut spins, remove liner and hold it in place.
Insert your new cuff making sure to put on the correct side (right or
left) and assemble back the bolts and parts in reverse order. When
putting the cuff bolts back on you want to only slightly tighten one
side so that you can easily attach the other side before you tighten
the bolts down all the way.
Soul Plate and Backslide Plate Removal and Replacement
The backslide plate attaches to the soul plate on the Cult skate and so we are going to discuss how to remove and replace both of them at the same time.
1. Use an allen wrench to uncrew the single bolt attaching the backslide plate to the soul plate.
2. Remove the backslide plate with your hands if possible. If not, take a flat head screwdriver and use it to pry the backslide plate out with leverage (Be careful with the screwdriver). It is OK if the plastic bends and flexes when removing the plate.
3. Insert the new backslide plate with your hands if possible. If not, insert the front tab of it (the side closest to the toe of the skate), take a rubber mallet and hit the other side of the backslide plate (the side with the screw hole) so that it pops into place, being careful not to hit any fingers.
It might take a couple tries to accomplish hitting it at the correct angle so that it pops into place but you definitely can hit it hard as long as you are using a rubber mallet. If you are worried about marking up the plate you can cover it with a clean rag for extra protection when you hit it.
4. Tighten the screw back into place and you are set.
1. Unbolt the two
frame bolts to remove the frame
2. Remove the backslide plate (following steps 1 and 2 for the backslide plate removal) if you are going to be using the same one or leave it attached if you are going to be replacing it with a new one.
3. Unscrew the 6 small allen
bolts and pull the soul plate
off of the boot.
4. Position the new soul plate on to the boot (Making sure that you set the nut for the backlide plate in its place on the soul plate first!) and attach it by screwing in the 6
small allen bolts.
5. Attach the backslide plate (following steps 3 and 4 for the backslide plate installation)
6. Attach the frame back on with the
two frame bolts.
1. Make sure to loosen your
skates all of the way before taking them off. Even though the Razors
liner can be replaced there are not always a lot of aftermarket
liners available to choose from. If you "yank" your
skates off quickly every time or leave the laces tied, you will cause
extra wear and tear on the liners which will decrease their lifespan.
2. It is a very good idea to
replace the soul plates and backslide plate if you have worn them down to the point where
you are causing wear on the boot itself when doing grinds or cess
slides. You can pick up replacement Cult soul plates here and Cult backslide plates here.
