HOW TO CHOOSE ITS ROLLER?
The choice of a roller skate will depend on its practice, the usefulness that we will have. There are four main categories of quad skateboarding practices: walking, skatepark, dance and derby, knowing that we can combine certain practices and do both dance and skatepark, dance and dance. of the ride.
To ride outside or inside?
Inside we practice a lot the derby, but we can also practice the roller quad dance. For the dance, all the skates available at Nomadeshop are supplied with outside wheels, but nothing prevents to buy the wheels of interior afterwards. It should be noted that indoor dance wheels are small and hard in most of the time.
Roller quad ride
For a person who will do only roller skate ride , which will roll in the street on places once in a while, we will opt for an early roller (between 69 €and 99 €) but who will offer you a running gear and a very correct comfort.
In the ride, we will advocate the basketball style , because it is more comfortable than a dance roller with a heel similar to that of artistic ice skates. The Rio Roller brands, Fila and Rookie offer models with a very good price-quality ratio. There is a good solid platinum, good quality wheels and ABEC 7 bearings (the ABEC standard defines the precision of the ball bearing). The bottom line is to feel good in basketball. The best is to try but if you do not have the opportunity to move in the store, you can order on the site nomadeshop.com and then make a return, if necessary. In the range above the ride, we find Chaya Derby Jump or customized skates with your own sneakers (be careful no air cushion in the sole so that the screws do not spoil the assembly).
Dance roller skates
On a roller quad dance with an artistic boots we will see a heel slightly raised. We will have less comfort because the shoe will be tighter but much more responsiveness and precision.
For entry-level dance skates we will have Classic Rookie models that work very well. They have an aluminum plate, good quality wheels and ABEC 7 bearings. In the same range just above we will have the Rio Roller Figure . With this skate, we recover the same base as that of rollers ride, it is only the boots that changes by bringing more comfort and better support to the foot. In the high-end category we find Chaya Lifistyle Elite with models that will have different names according to their colors: Peach &Cream , Purple Grape Soda , Sea Foam Dream . Same as at Chaya Derby Jump, we get the same base - urethane wheels big enough, a platinum composite, a stopper at Chaya wide enough.
The roller derby is a discipline in itself that makes confront two teams on an oval track (the track). Each team consists of a jammeuse (with a star on the helmet) and 4 blockers. To score the points, the jammeuse must overtake the blockers of the opposing team without being thrown to the ground or out of the track.
To make roller derby, it would be necessary to obtain a skate with wheels of interior . From time to time, in the "roller derby"category, we find "hybrid"- semi-outer, semi-interior wheels. The roller derby will have a relatively low boots with a short turntable. A semi-high boots would be more suitable for confirmed riders.
In the derby, we will have models represented by the brand Riedell : R2 with outside wheels and R4 with wheels inside, knowing that the high-end version also has the protections at the end of the pad and a tool comes with. Among the derby skates, there are also models Chaya Ruby , Chaya Sapphyre and JR1200 VANTAGE brand Jackson. The advantage of the Jackson derby roller is that it can suit both intermediates and beginners because it is supplied pre-mounted but without the wheels. Thus, we can buy the most suitable wheels depending on its level, knowing that the price of this skate is 129.90 €.
Quad skateboard roller skating
The practice of aggressive skating is often associated with online rollerblades. However, quad skate riders often invest in skateparks, bowls and ramps.
Among the most suitable models to make tricks, we note in particular a full skatepark skatepark Roller quad AGRESSIVE PRO 4 Roces brand with an aggressive plastic roller skating boots, a plate with a "groove"- a piece of plastic to the between the two wheels that allow to "slider", stall on the rails. You can also skatepark with Chaya dance shoes, there is even a possibility to add a groove.
Customized roller skates
What is recommended for people who can do quad and who have a good level, is either to take a pre-mounted skate and good quality in terms of platinum, wheels and sneakers (Chaya Derby Jump), to make a montage. To create a customized quad bike, you have to come to the store and choose its parts ( platinum , wheels , bearings , screws , brake ). Also, it would be necessary to bring a pair of adapted shoes with a sole not embossed, rather thick and the most rigid possible.
It takes €130 for a basic assembly without counting the shoe and can go up to €400, knowing that there are decks that are worth €200 alone.
