Rollerblade Recommendations

Looking for a new set.

Comfortable

Easy on and off

Normal street sidewalk use.

A place to get them.


These look new and different.

NICE....but seriously imo K2 is the only rollerblade to get. Normal street sidewalk use get a normal 85mm wheel with a 82a hardness.

Rollerblade is a name brand...like Kleenex.

What you are looking for is "Inline Skates".

Another vote for K2.

While I can't skate worth a damn, they were the best bang for the buck I could find.

Good Coolmax socks helps as well.

I agree on the K2's. I have a pair that I've had for a few years. And their great.

Thanks had the K2's before and never really liked them. Just me I guess went with a Roller Blade street force 2 or something like that I found them much more comfortable than the K2s. Thanks for the advice all.
