Roller skates | What you MUST know before buying |

Hi – and welcome to our roller skate guide where we will look into a few points of what you need to know before you buy your first pair of roller skates. Some of you also know them as quad skates. If you want a good all around skate with the classic look you should definitely take a look at the roller skates. They come with a very wide base plate that offers good stability and control. They can be used for people in all ages from
kids to older people. They can be used as a transportation device
to go from a to b. And you can even use them for dancing and disco. All quads skates comes with four wheels that
are in a pair. Which makes it very stable to stand on. I could spend a lot of time going into details about the wheels but what you need to know as a first time buyer is the difference between
soft wheels and hard wheels. The scale is something an A scale or a durometer scale and it goes from 0 to 100A. And the closer the number is to 100 the harder
wheel. A hard wheel offers a longer lifespan but
less shock absorption and grip. Where a soft wheel has more shock absorption
and more grip but a shorter lifespan. When choosing your roller skate you can choose
between a hard boot and a soft boot. A hard boot is really good if you want a quad
skate that can be used for fitness or longer rides because the hard shell offers really
good protection and stability. It also has the advantage that you usually
can replace the liner when it’s worn out. A soft boot is better for dancing and disco,
and is usually a lightweight construction and better ventilated. When you choose the size of the roller skate
it can be a bit tricky. Because it really depends on how you like
the fitting. We always recommend that you go to the website
and check the sizing guide for the products. Some people likes to take one size bigger
than their regular shoe size. And some like to take them in the same size
as their shoe size. However we recommend that you always try them
on at home before you go out and skate and if your toes touch the nose of the skate you know that they are too small. All roller skates come with a plate and trucks. The plate is usually made of nylon for a lighter
construction. And trucks of aluminum for stronger construction. And the thing you see here is something called
a cushion. The cushion determines how maneuverable and
agile the skate is. The softer the cushion the more agile the
skate is. And the harder the more directional stable
it is. But remember you can always replace them for
your preference. One of the unique characteristics of roller
skates is the toe-stop. The main purpose of the toe-stop is to set
off with to gain speed and you can also use it as a break. We recommend that you replace it before it is completely worn down. Otherwise it can be very difficult to replace it. Before you go out and skate – always remember
to put on your safety equipment. We recommend that you fully gear up with a
helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads and knee pads. So to sum up – there are two things that you
need to remember. 1) decide whether you want a hard boot or
a soft boot And 2) make sure that the size is to your
