In Line SkatesTypes of In-line Skates

There is a skate type for each style of skating and level of expertise. The various types of in-line skates include: Recreational, Aggressive, Speed, Women's and Hockey.

Skates Components
Each style of skate has a number of similar components.

Wheels
In-line skating wheels are usually made of polyurethane, a molded compound that allows for different thickness and wheel hardness.


Frames
Frames hold skate components in place and most recreational frames are made of aluminum alloy or nylon and fiberglass composites. Metal frames are stiffer, faster, and lighter.

Uppers
Skates uppers are made of a variety of materials such as synthetic materials, leather composites, etc. Many boots contain a cushioning liner usually made of a foam material. The Hard shell is made up of molded plastic.

Bearings
Bearings are the seven or eight balls at the center of each wheel, with each bearing having an ABEC rating that indicates the precision of their manufacturing. Bearings are either serviceable (they have a metal shield with a removable "C" ring, or a plastic/rubber type removable shield and can be taken apart to be cleaned, lubricated or replaced) or non-serviceable (they have a metal shield that protects them and only need to be wiped off with a clean cloth).

Brakes
Most manufacturers offer different braking systems, the most common form of baking system is a pad or cylinder on the rear wheel that stops movement by applying pressure on the heel. Some manufacturers offer mechanical braking systems that make stopping easier to learn.

Closures
There are two primary forms of closure systems on in-line skates: Buckles & Laces.
