The Rollerblade Tempest 100 Inline Skates are back for another great year of gliding through the park. Designed for the fitness skater, these skates will help improve and strengthen your skating skills. The boot is soft and made of a fiber tech shell to provide you with durability along with a superior fit so you skate comfortably on a reliable skate. The extruded aluminum frame is tough, stiff and durable which means you can skate farther, faster and easier with less effort. The Closure System on these skate boots consists of a cuff buckle, 45 degree power strap and performance asymmetrical lacing for a precise and custom fit every time you place them on your feet. The SG9 bearings will determine the smoothness of your ride and your ability to reach higher speeds with less effort, thus creating a longer roll for you to use to your advantage. The Precision 5 Star Fit is made of memory foam and anatomical pads that keep the skate light while also allowing your feet to remain cooler longer as you're heating up. The Rollerblade Tempest 100 Inline Skates are high-performance for the serious skater who wants strengthen up and condition while training
I use this skate as a speed skate at our local rink,I skate with my son who races.I also use this for training,fitness on our local rail trail.Fit is excellent true to size a little narrow, but not to tight.
The provided wheels are not all that great,I switch wheels for indoors (matter wheels) on black top they slip all over the place and can never seem to get a full stride. I recently switched to atom wheels and there is a huge improvement. The tempest puts down power reasonable well and feels stiff with little flex.
First time on wheels this big and this has been a great skate as long as you stay on very good pavement. Very dicey when the pavement gets a bit uneven but that is likely more as consequence of the skate type than this particular skate. Very smooth otherwise and fast, with a good combination of flex and support.
A: No, the Rollerblade Tempest recall only effects certain models of 2012/2013 version Tempests. The 2014 Tempest 100's, as with all of the other Tempests we have available on our sites, have already been inspected and are not part of the recall batch.
