How do adults choose roller skates
The essentials for adults to choose roller skates:
1. Pay attention to the details of the shoe jacket, wheel frame, wheels, bearings, shoes and shoe buckles;
2. Pay attention to whether the connection between the upper and the sole is firm, and whether the connection between the wheel frame and the wheel plate is tight, and there should be no gaps.
3. The wheel frame must be located in the center of the sole, otherwise it is difficult to complete difficult movements.
Specific selection method:
The bearings on the wheels determine the flexibility of the shoe. When buying shoes, you can gently turn the wheels with your hands. The wheels should rotate evenly, and the sound is subtle and bright when turning, and can last a long time. A good shaft looks delicate and exquisite in workmanship. 60 means that the circumference of the outer ring of the bearing is 60mm, 8 means that the diameter of the inner ring is 8mm, Z means metal dust cover, and ZZ means that both sides have metal dust cover. ABEC is the bearing grade. The higher the number behind, the better the precision of the bearing (the grades are 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9). Beginners can buy shoes with 608ZZABEC-1 or ABEC-3. The speed is too fast and not safe. Finally, you can place the shoes on a flat ground and push forward slightly to observe the sliding direction of the shoes. Good shoes should have a long sliding distance and a straight line.
Wheels are usually made of three different materials, namely plastic, resin and polyester. Plastic and resin wheels are slightly cheaper, but they are less wear-resistant and heat-resistant. A good wheel is made of polyester, which is wear-resistant, heat-resistant, and can slide for a long time. For people who practice for a long time, it is necessary to choose polyester wheels. The better the elasticity of the wheel, the better the grip. When buying, pay attention to the value on the label.’A’ is the hardness and’mm’ is the diameter and width of the wheel; the choice of wheels should be based on actual use, generally for leisure or special effects , The most suitable casual shoes are 70A, 72mm. 78A-85A has better grip, but the better the elasticity, the worse the hardness, so you have to choose where you often play in-line skates. Most speed skating shoes use 80mm wheels, which are much larger than the wheels used in other types of skates. This is because the large wheels have a large rotational inertia and have a better natural continuous sliding ability, but they are also relatively good. weight. When buying, you can pick up the shoes and drop them from a height of about 20cm-30cm off the ground. The higher the rebound, the better the wheels.
3. Soft and hard shell
Beginners should generally buy a pair of “hard shell” shoes, because such shoes are not easy to hurt the ankle, but this kind of shoe body is relatively inflexible and not suitable for playing “tricks”. In addition, it is best to buy shoes with a lock on the buckle, which is safer. Integrated shoes are better than split shoes. Imported products are much more expensive than domestic and joint ventures. Combining these aspects, the price is far worse.
Roller skates can be upgraded like a computer, because its shoes, bearings and wheels are all replaceable. In this way, if you feel that the old roller skates are not comfortable enough and fast enough, you don’t have to discard them, you can upgrade them according to your own preferences. You can choose a pair of shoes with thicker fabrics, softer tongues; to make it more comfortable, you can also replace finer bearings and larger and better wheels to make it as fast as the wind, which is really good. 7Single-row extreme roller skates are different from ordinary roller skates. They use a 4-wheel in-line layout and are mostly fixed with laces and buckles, so that there will be no danger due to the loosening of the buckle when doing stunts. The base is also lower than casual roller skates to maintain a low center of gravity, and the shoe shell is relatively hard, providing safety protection and preventing severe impacts. Generally, the front and rear wheels are relatively close to weaken the grip, because too strong grip will make it difficult to complete certain stunts. The choice of single-row extreme shoes can basically be selected according to the above requirements, but the corresponding requirements are much higher. It is best to ask experienced people to help choose.
5. Try it on
The size of the roller skates should be half or one size larger than the shoes you wear on a daily basis. Under normal circumstances, be sure to put on both feet for a try, and it is advisable not to sway your feet from side to side inside. The thickness of the inner sleeve of the wheel shoe and whether it is comfortable to wear is the key to choosing shoes. The thicker the inner sleeve, the more covering the foot, and the softer the tongue, the better. Only suitable and covering shoes can protect the ankle and make sports more flexible.
