Quad rollers skates are traditional two-by-two styles skates—equipped with two wheels in front and two in the back. These skates offer great control and a stable feel. Rink-style skates feature a higher boot for added ankle support as you skate.
Low-cut boots on your roller skates provide a lightweight feel for easier mobility. Look for a soft, foam ankle collar. Padded lining ensures you feel comfortable, lap after lap.
An ankle strap locks the ankle in for better support as you move. Your child can gain confidence in roller skates designed for beginners. These skates feature larger back wheels set wide apart. These design creates a lower center of gravity for better balance and support.
The four main components of your skate are the boot, the plate, the ball bearings and wheel itself.
The best-quality roller skate boots are constructed from leather, though some synthetic and vinyl boots provide optimal feel and support. Roller skate plates fasten together the wheels and boot. This component of the skate is typically composed of aluminum or composite metal materials.
High-boot skates typically feature wheels that are more narrowly set. Expect urethane and composite wheels to be durable on a variety of skating surfaces.
