The peculiarities of aggressive skating
Aggressive skating is a type of skate that allows slider (skate) skatepark or street (in the street). These skates consist of a boot that includes a boot, a spoiler that holds the ankle, one or loops and a cover boot (element that covers the shell) for some model. They also have soulplates, placed under the boot, turntables plus an H-Block and wheels and bearings.
Material and quality of different boots
Two categories of aggressive skating are distinguished there are those with soft hulls called soft boot and hard hulls also called hard boot. Soft boots are usually made of a carbon shell or a plastic shell. Lighter, they reduce weight. The carbon shell is more rigid so it is more responsive and more accurate than plastic. The plastic shell is more comfortable and less rigid.
The choice of turntables
There are 4 compositions of turntables :
- The flat model: these turntables are composed of 4 wheels. The 4 wheels touching the ground, they allow the freestyle rollers to be faster and more manageable.
- The anti-rocker model: this category of roller has 2 wheels at the ends that do not touch the ground, called anti-rocker, and 2 central wheels. The wheels are usually made of plastic or very rigid rubber with a hardness greater than 100A. This arrangement makes it possible to avoid blockages during the slide. This is the most common model in aggressive skating.
- The freestyle platinum set up model: developed with a large V-shaped H-Block, there is a wider space which makes slider easier. This composition is close to the anti-rocker model with a more refined form.
- The Powerblading Model: This is the latest model that has been created. It can be as fast as Freeskate and slider as well as aggressive roller skating. Platinum is plastic and the wheels are larger.
