Roller Hockey Essentials: Mission® Skates & Gear
Your roller hockey game begins with a pair of Mission® skates.
Engineered for speed and forgiveness on the rink, Mission skates are ideal for beginner, intermediate and advanced-level roller athletes. Take on the competition with stability-maximizing uppers, advanced wheels and specialized inhaler uppers that keep your skate breathable and cool.
Stock up for your game with Mission axle and spacer kits, individual wheels, roller hockey pants, gloves and other accessories.
Inline roller hockey skates have a similar size and construction to ice hockey skates, with an aggressive build that promotes a blend of speed, agility and stability during play. These skates frequently feature leather uppers and lace-up closure systems.
When selecting your hockey skate, look for reinforced boots that are comfortable yet stiff. Many beginners opt for a softer boot, which allows for better mobility. Keep in mind that roller hockey skate wheels are generally 76 mm to 80 mm diameters, smaller than those of traditional roller skates.
From the rink to the concrete, reinforced boots, wider bottoms and compact wheel sizes all help you skate aggressively. Keep in mind that most pairs of inline hockey skates do not have brakes.
Many mission skates feature an injected outsole and a brushed nylon inner liner for comfort. An anatomically formed construction delivers the custom fit and feel you crave.
After you’ve selected your Mission skates, suit up with the brand’s protective equipment.
Mission hockey gloves are designed with specialized Grip Reaper technology, which promotes a flexible palm for better grip and control of your hockey stick. An inhaler cooling system maximizes breathability for comfort.
Mission hockey pants also feature built-in ventilation for a cool, dry fit when you’re working up a seat. An ultra-durable, reinforced construction stands up to falls and abrasions. Look for pants with an adjustable web rip cord for a secure fit.
