What are these kids' roller skates designed for?
The terms "roller skate" and "quad skate" are used to designate the same thing.
The Quad 100, also called fitness quad skates, are above all versatile roller skates designed for your child to wear while learning how to skate or practising occasionally. We put comfort first during the design process. That way, your child can concentrate on how much fun they're having. The vintage style of these wheeled shoes is a nod to roller skates from the 80s.
What's the difference between fitness quad skates and artistic skates?
Stuck between this model and the artistic skates with a heel? Artistic quads are made differently. They come up higher on the ankle, have a small heel and their brake is closer to the ground. More than anything else, their design is dictated by the sport of artistic roller skating.
Fitness quad skates are a more versatile skate for urban exploring, roller disco and some occasional roller dancing or cruising. They are as comfortable as trainers but with wheels added on.
What protective gear do you need to start cruising on skates?
Like in all gliding sports, falling is just part of learning (even for experienced skaters). For maximum protection, we recommend wearing knee pads, wrist guards and a helmet at the absolute minimum. Elbow pads as well as padded shorts can also be helpful when you haven't quite figured out a little thing called balance. And even if you're not exactly stylish, your joints will thank you.
How is the quad made?
Boot: Synthetic PU.
Brake: POLYURETHANE (leaves no marks on flooring).
Chassis/Trucks: High impact PP.
Wheels: Injected PU.
These roller skates comply with EN 13899. What does the standard cover?
The EN 13899 European standard defines the rules for roller sports equipment and roller skates.
This standard specifies the safety requirements, specifications concerning test methods, markings, and information provided in order to reduce the risk of injury.
How do you replace worn parts?
Spare parts (54mm wheels, ABEC 5 or ABEC 7 bearings) are available in-store and online.
We recommend regularly swapping the wheels around so that they wear evenly. The same for the brakes: By switching the left and right brakes, they will wear out more evenly and last for longer.
Tips for storage and maintenance
We recommend storing your skates in a warm, dry place. After use do not dry near a naked flame or in direct contact with a heat source.
Restrictions on use
Not designed for skate parks or roller derby.
