We have included four common mistakes of inline skaters, read on to know if you are on the right track. The worst thing that could happen is getting the wrong pair of skates or getting yourself hurt.

1. Skating without any protection

Many advanced skaters are confident in their skill set and expertise, everyone trusts their own experience but getting yourself geared up in protection will do you more good than harm, you might even thankful for it saving your life.

We highly advise going with full protective gears that includes a helmet, wrist, knee and elbow guards.

 

2. Wearing skates that don't fit

Trying on a pair of skates before buying is always the way to go. If you can't get them in stores, try on a similar pair from the same brand and model range so you have a good idea of your size. Different brands and models differs in sizing and cut, so do be careful and do not assume your size is fixed or one size applies to all skates.

 

3. Speeding and ignoring road rules

Rules of the road should not be ignored. As much as urban and aggressive skating drives your adrenaline and keeps you going for more, speeding and being oblivious to traffic whether on the road or pavements will only make you a danger object to avoid. Plan your trail and do be considerate of other users and pedestrians. It is great to practise that killer move and slide on that handrail, but safety always comes first, both for others and yourself.

 

4. Not knowing how to stop and forgetting to stop

Yes, it's thrilling to go down hill, with that impressive swerve and rounding each curve but being unstoppable isn't gonna make you a shooting star. You might dream of burning wheels so turn they into fire but everyone would be thankful if you knew how to use that brake of yours. We are not doubting you and we are sure you know every way to make yourself stop, we just could not emphasis more that it is crucial to brake before it escalates into something that is actually preventable.

So there you have it, four common mistakes of inline skaters, don't be the one who faults them! Always practise safety and grind that dirt so Stephane Alfano would be proud of you or at least nod tastefully.

Benefits of Inline Skating

Rollerblade Benefits

BUILDS AEROBIC EXERCISE BENEFITS

Inline skating increases your heart rate and gets your lungs working, both components in aerobic exercise. You can increase these aerobic benefits by skating on an incline, skating more vigorously, or practicing interval skating. Aerobic exercise improves the cardiovascular system, reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.

BUILDS ANAEROBIC EXERCISE BENEFITS

Inline skating provides anaerobic benefits, such as muscle strengthening and toning. Lower body muscles, core muscles, and even the upper body muscles receive an effective workout while inline skating. From long leg strides, maintaining posture, and swinging the arms, the entire body will see the muscular benefits. IMPROVES

DYNAMIC BALANCE, COORDINATION, & AGILITY

Inline skating is about dynamic balance, or balance while your body is in motion. By starting with the basic inline skating skills then learning to do more advanced moves on your skates, such as skating backwards, crossover turns, inline hockey, aggressive skating, and even yoga, you can challenge your balance, coordination, and agility.

INCREASES CORE STRENGTH

Postural, abdominal, and back extensor muscles, get a great workout while inline skating. With each push and glide motion, the core is activated to support the whole body providing stability allowing for dynamic balance. A strong core contributes to the effortless look a practiced skater demonstrates.

WEIGHT LOSS AND MAINTENANCE

Inline skating at 10mph on a regular basis not only burns about 6 calories a minute, or 360 calories an hour, but also turns fat into muscle - a double benefit. Also, the faster you skate, the more calories you’ll burn per minute.

LOW IMPACT EXERCISE

While skating has the bone density enhancing benefits of being a weight bearing activity, the smooth push and glide motion has minimal impact on the joints.

INCREASES SELF-CONFIDENCE

Probably the greatest fitness benefit of all is that inline skating is fun and gives you a sense of accomplishment as you tackle new fitness challenges. There are so many great inline skate events around the country in which to participate; from races to tours to local skate nights to so much more. Get out there and have fun getting and staying fit!

How to choose the perfect skate

Start here and read the buyer's guide to choose the perfect skate for you!

BUYERS GUIDE

If you are thinking about getting into the sport for the first time or even upgrading your current skates, below are some key things you need to know in order to select the perfect skate.


FIT
Comfort and performance are what defines a good skate fit. The ideal fit has your toes lightly touching the front of the boot while the rest of the boot feels like a semi-firm handshake around the foot. This snug fit will get a little looser as you break in your skates over time. Going too big or too small on your inline skates can create fit problems in the long run. A sloppy fit delivers poor performance and a skate that fits too tightly can cut off circulation.

How to measure your feet size (Skates)

WHEEL SIZE
While inline wheels have grown over the years, the thought process that “bigger is better” doesn’t always apply. Wheel size should be based on skater ability and skating style. New skaters who are getting comfortable on their inline skates will appreciate smaller (78mm) wheel configurations or Hi-Lo (84mm/80mm) setups. More experienced skaters that use skating for a workout tool will utilize a bigger wheel (84mm) that allows for higher speeds. Advanced skaters looking to maximize speed, gravitate towards larger wheels (90mm, 100mm, or 110mm/100mm Hi-Lo configurations). For advanced urban skaters requiring more freestyle performance, we recommend a wheel size of 80mm to blend speed with optimal maneuverability. Aggressive skaters who demand specialized performance for the ramp, park, or street require skates with smaller wheels; the K2 Unnatural comes with a 60mm wheel setup but can accommodate a maximum wheel size of 61mm.

 

BEARINGS
There are two types of bearings found on inline skates; ABEC rated bearings have set the standard since day 1 and ILQ bearings are designed specifically for inline skates. ABEC bearings are rated at ABEC 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. A general rule of thumb for ABEC bearings is the higher the number, the tighter the tolerances, which leads to higher speeds and a smoother roll. ILQ bearings come in many configurations and are geared towards the high-end skater. ILQ bearings differ from ABEC in that ILQ bearings feature 6 balls instead of 5, which increases load rating.

PROTECTIVE GEAR
Do you wear a seat belt when you drive? Do you use eye protection when you use power tools? Do you wear pads and a helmet when skating? You should’ve answered yes to all three. Smart skaters wear protection, (helmets and wrist guards at a minimum) to ensure that high abrasion areas are covered. The design of today’s pad sets create protective gear that is light, ventilated, and breathable, keeping you comfortable in a pad set that fits like a second skin. Remember, the right fit is key to any pad set and helmet. Make sure your gear has a snug fit and doesn’t shift while skating.
