Description Details Sizing Info
The Big Cat's boot is identical to that of other Roces skates ? plastic with ratcheting buckles ? but the story is in the fore and aft wheels, a whopping 110 millimeters in diameter, about a third again as big as conventional wheels. Roces considers the Big Cat something of an experiment, and used as such, it's pretty entertaining. The wheels have dirt-grabbing hard-plastic knobs all over them, and the skate has no brake, meaning that the more dubious T-stop or hockey stop is your only method of self-arrest. The Cat's extra-long wheelbase provided ample stability. The Big Cat is a lot of fun on hard-packed dirt or paths chunked up with debris.


- The back tire on the Big Cats is cantilevered out quite far to the back, so there is no chance of having your skates come out from underneath you if you lean too far back. Leaning back prevents you from getting tripped up by obstacles such as rocks and sticks, which generally have the effect of pitching you forward when run over.
- A staggered stance is the most secure position to ride off-road. By scissoring your skates, that is weighting your rear skate and extending your other skate in front of you, you'll find that skating through rough stuff becomes a cinch. The staggered stance has the benefit of encouraging you to keep your weight back, enabling you to glide over obstacles without getting upended.
