Excellent skates. I couldn't ask for much better.
Comments:
I used to be a Rollerblade customer. Then I moved to another (cheaper) skate. Big mistake. Less support and less control. It felt like I was skating in mud. Rollerblade has been doing what they do for a long time. They understand the need for support. These skates are amazing. To think that I paid a little more than what I paid for my original Rollerblade skates some 20+ years ago... Run, don't walk to your nearest computer/tablet/smartphone to order these puppies.

Oh, and inlineskates.com rocks! Others can't offer the same insight that these guys do. If they don't have inline or skates in their name, forget about it.

Hurt my ankles. I actually drilled out some of the shell to resolve it. Also, they weigh a lot. Lastly, one wheel is clicking already.

Rollerblade Has Not Forgotten Their Legacy
Comments:
When I originally started rollerblading, Rollerblade the only serious contender on the market. Bauer was attempting to break into the segment, but they were only attaching wheel chassis to ice-skates.

Rollerblade had around 5 different models back then. Fast forward to today and their product offerings are astounding. In the past, I tried using Roces and K2's when Coolblades were discontinued, just to try them out, and eventually got a pair of TRS on eBay to use for the last 8 years or so. Well, you can't find TRS anymore so I looked at going new. I was overwhelmed but eventually narrowed down the search with help of this website.

These skates are everything I have come to appreciate in a good pair of rollerblades. They are a true successor to everything that made Rollerblade great in the beginning. I'm glad to see that they haven't lost touch. These skates are more aggressive than fitness, but they seem to do well enough that their use isn't limited.

Comments:
The skates are great. I have a pair of zetra blades by rollerblade as well. These are much more supportive. They roll fast and let you maneuver quickly. They also land solid when jumping. They are slightly uncomfortable, but it is the nature of the beast. Definitely recommend.
The size was the same as my shoe size.

Sweet Skates, But Ran Small (for me)
Comments:
I had to exchange the original pair (size 12.5) for a larger size (size 13). I would say that these skates ran small (at least, for me).

The skates are sweet. Solid, steady, and easy to use. I'm an older skater with a good measure of experience. But that experience was twenty years ago. These skates are proving to be easy to handle. And, as an older guy, I appreciate the ankle support.

IMHO, they are a good set for getting back into skating (or even a raw beginner). That said, I doubt that the average skater would ever "outgrow" these skates. Intermediate- and advanced-level skaters would enjoy them, too.

Q: Hi, I have a almost flat arch foot, does the skates comes with arch? will that be a problem? Thanks
Asked : Jun 22, 2016
By : Shumu9, Miami
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The Rollerblade Twister 80 is going to offer some slight arch support, much more than skates of yesteryear. With that said you may still need something additional; I've outfitted many skaters over the years with specialty footbeds, or added additional supports to the skates which is always an option. Another thing to keep in mind is how important sizing the skates are. Inline skates are going to fit the same as your standard athletic shoe size, so make sure to go with the proper size and don't go big. If you wear a size 10 in shoes get a size 10 in your skates, some skaters try going larger for some reason as if that will help, but it will only be a detriment to proper fit. Best of luck!

Q: I have skated most of my life and skated with inline skates (Rollerblade Maxxum 84s) for about 10 years. That was more than 10 years ago though. I want to skate recreationally and now need a lot of lateral support. The Maxxum 84's and Twister 80's seem to offer good support. Can anyone recommend the best skate for support?
Asked : May 26, 2016
By : Joseph, Saint Petersburg Florida
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: If you are used to the full plastic outer Rollerblade skates, the maxxum series is great. The hard plastic outer shell is really reminiscent of the older style skates and gives great support. The Twister and the Maxxum are great choices, the boot and liner are identical. The only differences in the 2 are the Twister has a shorter frame and a smaller wheel so it maneuvers a bit better in tight quarters, the Maxxum offers a longer frame and slightly larger wheel so it's going to be a bit smoother and faster overall. It all depends on what you area looking for, I skate with the Maxxum 90's because I wanted the hardshell boot for support but wanted the larger wheels for better max speed.

Q: Even though these are for urban skating, can I also use them for fitness?
Asked : May 21, 2016
By : Steven, Brooklyn, NY
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: You can really use these skates for whatever you want, they are urban skates but they will work as fitness skates as well. They do have a shorter wheelbase and smaller wheels so they won't be as fast as the larger wheeled fitness skates but this will in turn actually make you work harder for your speed which will help if you're looking for a good work out.

Q: In the video he talks about how this boot easily detaches and can be applied to different frames, now i just ordered this skate set and wondering is there an available Aggressive frame i could buy later on that this boot will attach to? Sorry if its a dumb question, newly returning skater and the world has changed a lot in 13 years haha!
Asked : Sep 09, 2015
By : N8, Fargo ND
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: We don't sell the frames separately here but the urban skates do use a standard UFS style system so you will be able to add a different frame to the skates including an aggressive style frame if you choose to. You won't be left with a huge soul area to grind with but the overall feel will be similar to an aggressive skate after the switch.

Q: I am a size 11.5 in mens shoes. Do you guys suggest same 11.5 in skates or are they tight and I should I go a size bigger?
Asked : Jul 18, 2015
By : ariel, MIAMI
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: I wear a size 10.5 and purchased the Rollerblade Maxxum 90's in a size 10.5 and they fit perfectly. Rollerblade skates are going to fit similar to your shoe size so it's recommended to go with the same size as your shoe size. Skates will fit snug at first but will break in after about 6 times skating in them.

Q: What is removable lateral slider? How does it work? Could you post a video?
Asked : Jun 08, 2015
By : Mel, Sunnyvale
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: You will see on the front outside are of the skate, there is a plastic piece with visible bolts. This is the slider, it is removable for those that find it unnecessary and just want to lighten the skate, and being removable also means it's replaceable for skaters that are hard on their skates and may wear it down. The slider works as an area for the skate to "slide" across pavement and in doing so protects the skate.

Q: Currently I have a pair of Rollerblade Burner 451 size 29.5cm and they hurt my feet. So I suppose I need 30cm or 30.5cm ones. In the case of Twister, would I need to go for the 31cm size? I heard the fit on twisters is smaller. I have a wide and flat foot, so I need to be sure. Thanks.
Asked : May 05, 2015
By : Sergio, Chicago, Illinois
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Rollerblade inline skates are going to run very close to your actual shoe size and should be taken the same size, those with a wider foot can go up a 1/2 size to make room but it is not recommended to go any larger than that. The Twister 80 model is a hard plastic boot which gives great rigidity and durability but could be a bit harsh with a wider foot. I would recommend checking out some of the Rollerblades with softer boots, or for a similar style skate that is a bit softer check out the K2 Il Capo as it has a similar stlye but with a softer and more forgiving boot.

Q: Which one is better this one or the twister LE ? What are differences?
Asked : Apr 30, 2015
By : Jose, Houston, TX
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Both are great skates, and are very similar. The main differences are the aesthetics of the skates with the regular model being black with green laces and the LE model being red and white. The only other difference worth noting is the slightly smoother bearing on the Twister 80 LE with the SG9 bearing where the regular twister offers a SG7 bearing. Both are great skates and come highly recommended.
