Designed for the adult looking to not only improve their skating but to compete in marathons and also compete in advanced fitness training activities. The Tempest 110s have been designed specifically for men and offer an anatomical fit that will provide your feet with a boot that will conform to the actual shape of your foot so you're always comfortable every time you skate. This low profile boot has a slim construction made with a Fiber Tech Shell that is durable, soft and comfortable. The Rush Extruded Aluminum Frame is tough, stiff and durable, allowing you to skate farther, faster and easier with less effort. A stiffer frame has less flex and movement which is great at reducing the amount of energy that is lost when you push off on each stride. A combination of a cuff buckle, 45 degree Micro-Adjustment Buckle and Performance Asymmetrical Lacing gives you custom fit and feel every time you get ready for the next session. Storm through your training sessions on a pair of skates that boast an anatomical fit, enhanced articulation and high performance.
This was a great investment. The skates are fast and the amount of effort to achieve that speed is minimal.
The sizing is accurate but if you have a wider foot I recommend looking at a half size or even a full size bigger than your normal size however.
Love these skates and if I wear these down, which could take a while, I am likely to come back to them again.
Good skate for long easy skates in urban areas and some bike trails. I did have a lower buckle break for what every reason on my second use. The company replaced them quickly and got me back on the pavement. I would recommend these skates for a casual skater looking for a little more speed.
A: We cannot guarantee that this frame will fit ANY other Rollerblade brand inline skate, but the frame is removable and will fit some select models of Rollerblade inline skates. We'd be able to offer more information if you had the model of skate you were looking to splice this frame onto.
A: The Rollerblade Tempest 110 will indeed come with a brake in box that can be attached.

A: While it does indeed come with a heel brake in the box (unattached), you'll want to plan on learning some alternative techniques for controlling speed and slowing down. Because the longer wheel base and lower cuff will make using that brake more awkward & unstable (picture how far behind your heel that brake is going to be), and it will get in the way of maneuvers like crossovers. When I moved from 90's to 100's (Crossfires) I tried the heel brake and then promptly removed it and never went back. FYI.
