Having defined with the manufacturer, we proceed to the election of the shoe. What should pay attention to the purchase turned out to be not useless?


You probably noticed that some models have larger wheels, others small. How to choose the clips, if available both? The low frame and small wheels are suitable for those who enjoy extreme sports.

Choosing a good movie, do not lose sight of this small parts such as bearings. They are not visible to the customer, but play an important role.

  • The speed and ease of drive depends on the quality of "balls";
  • Accuracy class - 3, 5, 7 (in common) - quality polishing details. The higher the number, the easier it will be to move. The most common -5 and 7;
  • Stamps parts - Nautilus, Black Hole, SKF, Twin Cam;
  • Cheap rollers - bad bearings;
  • The new standard ILQ, which uses 6 pieces instead of 7;
  • Skates Starter kit (almost all) - ABEC-5;
  • Choosing clips, remember that the bearing - consumables. After their service life can be replaced, just as the wheels themselves.


Frames for the rollers can be made of metal or plastic. Metal - Magnesium or aluminum alloys - require extra cushioning shoe as vibrating when driving on uneven terrain. They often use models, designed for high-speed driving. But if low-quality metal, the bent part can be even-handed. Deformation - the most common cause of breakage of the frame.

Plastic frame (composite), made of fiberglass, nylon, carbon fiber. For large loads may crack. In addition, the frame may be detachable and removable.

Bad ventilation, high-quality lateral support feet, shockproof outer part of the ridge, the ability to clean with a soft paste. All of this is inherent in rolls with a hard boot. Cons: bulky and certain severity, possible pressure on the plastic leg.

  • Soft boot - SOFT-BOOT

This removable structure with lateral support in the form of internal stiffeners made of plastic. They are lightweight, comfortable and well ventilated. But because of the personality structure of the legs, lateral support may be insufficient, and a clean cloth shoe is quite problematic. But for novice skaters - is ideal.

 how to choose the roller skates


Finally we come to the question of how to choose a suitable size rollers. Well, let's try.

  • Our feet have a tendency to steam out in the heat. This should be considered when choosing the size of roller skates;
  • Fingers in any case should not rest against the toe of the boot;
  • Lace-up shoes should be tight, but without undue pressure on the foot;
  • Wearing shoes, stand on one foot and the entire body weight, try to fill up the clip on the side. The greater the resistance, the better maneuverability. If the "obstruction" was deep enough, remove the skates and match the other models;
  • Roller skate should be neither small nor great, everything has to be at the time;
  • Do not hurry! 15 minutes walk around, bend your legs, bend, sit down, and it is better (if possible) a ride around the store;
  • To measure different models and brands to choose a shoe that is comfortable it is for your feet.

Symptoms, saying that the size of the selected clips is small: the pressure on the legs, numbness in the feet, cramping. If the freedom of the foot and the heel strongly evident and more tightly laced fails - skating great.

Be sure to remember to take the match! Otherwise, you have to forget about such an important point of any holiday in nature, like a bonfire. If you are traveling to a place where plenty of branches - still grab some wood because it can suddenly began to rain, and the wet branches of a fire can not do. And the branch - not the best solution if you plan to fry kebabs as branches of coal would not be normal.

What else can you take to a picnic? Well, first of all, if you go to a noisy cheerful company, it will not hurt to take a badminton or volleyball. Do not be amiss and guitar, if anyone of you knows how to play it. After the songs under the night sky from the hot fire in a circle of friends - it's so romantic. Such evenings are long in the memory and soul warm during the cold season. If the place where you go, near a pond or river, you can grab a rod and a kettle. Freshly ear on fire - it is very tasty! At home, this never to cook soup.
