How does an adjustable inline skate work?
An adjustable inline skate works with the push of a button. Skates like Rollerblade microblade adjustable skates have markers in the toe to easily adjust skates to the correct sizes. Some adjustable inline skates can adjust up to 5 sizes!
Are inline skates easy for kids to put on?
Not to worry if your child is still learning to tie their shoes. Look for rollerblades where the boot offers plenty of support where the closure system works with a cuff buckle or Velcro strap to firmly attach the skate to the child's leg. A lace system will work for a secure fit in the toe area but is awkward for kids to use all the way up to the top of the boot.
This is a big deal as the wheel size will affect the center of gravity and the available speed. It is easier to go fast longer with a rollerblade with bigger wheels (over 72mm wheels).
A kid's rollerblade typically has bearings that will help keep speed under control. Purchasing larger wheels like Rollerblade performance wheels will allow a more moderate speed or even faster speeds in better quality skaters.
Importance of Center of Gravity
A lower center of gravity will improve stability balance and control. A smaller wheel lowers the center and keeps the child's weight close to the pavement.
Engineered Mesh for Breathability
Since the frame is metal, the boot can be a mesh or hard shell material. Manufacturers use mesh to build in support yet allowing skates to be free of the smells found in boys and girls shoes thanks to the ventilation provided.
A durable integrated brake is included in most kid related skates.
How do I know if my child is ready?
Can a 3 year old rollerblade? There isn't a standard age of when kids can learn skating, but there are signs to look for to know they are ready.
The first clue to look for is running without falling. Second, can your child balance on each foot individually? If the answers are yes and yes, both boys and girls can start whenever you think they are ready.
