One of the main things that differentiates men’s fitness skates and recreational skates is the actual weight of the skate. Fitness inline skates are going to be much lighter than recreational skates using lighter weight materials in the skate’s boot, frame and other materials. Men’s fitness inline skates will have either a metal alloy frame or a performance composite frame which adds rigidity to the skate while maintaining a light overall weight. The skate’s boots will also have minimal extra features to keep things simple to offer a great fit, form and function, but also a light overall weight.
Men’s fitness inline skates are also going to have larger overall wheel sizes. You will notice fitness skate wheel sizes are typically 100mm or larger. The larger wheels allow for a smoother roll and a faster overall speed when skating. These large wheels may take some skating to get used to if you’ve never been on a larger wheeled skate but once you get used to them they are very rewarding. With the wheels being larger in size, men’s fitness skates are going to roll over small cracks, bumps and rocks much smoother.
Men’s fitness inline skates do offer varying lacing options from standard laces, a quick lace or a Boa closure system. Standard laces will be just that, a standard pull and tie lace similar to a pair of shoes. A quick lace will typically be a pull and lock type of system that can be done and undone very quickly. A Boa closure men’s fitness skate will offer a knob and lace system where the knob can be turned to tighten the skate and easily pulled outward to loosen the skate completely.When shopping men’s fitness inline skates you can easily use the left hand side of the page refinements to narrow your selection.
