Single roller skates are also called inline skates. The wheels on each shoe are in a straight line. The main categories are:
Leisure roller skates
The wheels are the same size, with heel brakes, emphasizing comfort, and the shoe shell should not be too soft, otherwise it may cause ankle sprain. The knife holder of this kind of shoe is integrated with the shoe. The wheel should be made of polyester material to ensure sufficient elasticity and grip effect. The quality of the wheel directly affects the effect and safety of the movement. Children’s roller skates are mostly of this type, with adjustable sizes, with three or four wheels (mainstream) each shoe.
Racing roller skates
In order to reduce the load and give full play to the strength of the ankle, the upper is relatively short (no card pot), and the shoe body is made of full leather. Most good racing roller skates do not have brake heads, and some ice skates are like water skates. It is characterized by a low center of gravity for stability during coasting, and high friction on the side of the racing wheels for acceleration. Racing roller skates are generally based on 4 to 5 wheels.
Skills roller skates
Skill roller skating shoes are also called extreme roller skating shoes: they usually adopt the lace-up buckle type, so that it is not easy to be dangerous due to the loose 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 harder to provide safety protection and prevent 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. There is a slot in the middle of the knife holder for easy lever clamping.
Also called flat shoes, mainly used for fancy winding piles, fancy brakes, FSK, etc., and can also be used for street brushing. The main components are upper shoes, knife holder, and wheels. The upper shoe is mainly composed of a shoe shell, an inner liner, and a card pot. The shoe shell is divided into hard, semi-soft and soft. The hard shoe shell is wear-resistant but has no plasticity. It is more suitable for brakes, FSK and flat flower entry, semi-soft , Soft shoe shell has a certain degree of plasticity, long-term wear will fit the foot better, most semi-soft, soft shoes have a thermoplastic function (use a heat gun to heat the shoe shell to deform it, use it with caution), There are mainly plastic, glass fiber, and carbon fiber shoe bases. Of course, the materials are different and the prices vary greatly. There is little difference in the shape of the card pot. Some high-end shoes use a triangular card pot, which improves the flexibility of the ankle joint, but the stability is not as good as the general card pot. The material is generally plastic. All hard shell shoes and some semi-soft shoes have removable inner tanks, while other shoes, in order to reduce weight, integrate the inner tank with the shoe shell and cannot be replaced. The tool rests are all removable and adjustable, all made of metal, without brakes. The characteristics of flat shoes are mainly reflected in its wheels. The four wheels on one shoe are not the same size, but the middle two are slightly larger (generally 4mm larger than the diameter of the front and rear wheels). The action is more flexible.
Roller skating shoes
Shoe shells are mostly hard shells, and the knife holder is directly attached to the base of the shoe shell. The wheels are also not the same size, but the last two wheels are large and the first two wheels are small, which is convenient for sudden acceleration.
