Can I lose weight inline skating?

There are numerous benefits from spending time in your skates. Skating is a efficient cardio workout and is safer on your joints than running. This is a great exercise to maintain your endurance while in the off season from other sports. On average a 30 minute skate burns approximate 260 calories. Skating is a easy family activity, plus it's more fun than going to the gym!

Is K2 a good skate brand?

K2 is one of the most innovative inline skate brands on the market. The brand is known for their soft-boot technology, which allows skaters to roll in comfort straight from the box without a break in period. These skates rank high in both comfort and fit. 

The K2 urban model inline skates have frames designed to be responsive to city terrain. K2 aluminum frames are also light weight to help reduce fatigue to help you skate longer. K2's speed inlines come in different versions as well and are great for marathons. Runners also find cross training in inlines beneficial to maintain their endurance. Beginners tend to start with a pair of recreational skates as they offer stability while finding your balance. Review the inline categories to see which one aligns with your goals. 

What is the boa lacing system?

Depending on which version of K2 skate you chose it may have come with the Boa lacing feature. This closure system alleviates many problems of traditional laces. Skates with this type of closure can be easily put on and removed quickly. The dial mechanism allows for quick adjustments if needed without adding weight to the boot.  Boa technology was designed to give skaters control to find the perfect boot fit and lock in the support needed without worrying about laces loosening or being too tight. 

Sizing my K2 skates

Do K2 inline skate sizes run narrow? Your feet are not the same exact size, the fit of a inline skate will feel differently on each foot. New inline skates should feel snug without squeezing your toes. Skaters with narrow size feet tend to prefer the K2 brand as they give them a better fit.

Signs that your bearings need attention
