If this is your first time buying a pair of skates for yourself or a loved one, choosing the right skates can be daunting, and with so many options, it can be overwhelming.

What are features of a good quad roller skate? Whether it's your first-time skating or you're looking to replace an old pair, our guide will help you find the right skates!

This passage is going to talk about the followings of quad roller skate:

(1) Types of quad roller skate

(2) Indoor or outdoor quad roller skate?

(3) Determine high top or low top style quad roller skate


(1) Types of quad roller skate

Step 1: Determine the type of skating you are looking for. Four-Line or Inline

Inline skates have wheels that are arranged in 1 straight line. This makes them easier to maneuver, which is why they are perfect for roller field hockey or outdoor skating if you want to be able to maneuver quickly around cones or potholes.

If you want a similar feel to skates, or want to go long distances, then inline skates might be a better choice for you!

Quad skates have wheels that are arranged in a two-by-two fashion. This makes them more stable and therefore better for beginners.

Quad skates (or roller skates) are ideal if you are interested in dancing on skates (for example, using an artistic style or jam style), or if you are interested in roller derby. With the right hardware and protective gear, you can also have fun at the skate park.

Another difference between inline skates and quad skates is the position of the brakes. On inline skates, the brakes are located at the heel of 1 boot. On quad skates, the "toe block" is fixed to the plate under the toe of both boots.  

Have you decided to buy inline skates? Great! Buy our selection of adult inline skates or kids inline skates.

If you decide to use quad skates, the next step is to determine whether you will be skating primarily indoors or outdoors.

Step 2: Determine if You Want Indoor or Outdoor Skates

What makes an indoor skate an indoor skate, or an outdoor skate an outdoor skate? Wheels! Indoor wheels are harder (less grip), allowing them to slide easily on the rink floor or derby track. Outdoor wheels are softer (more grippy), allowing them to absorb more shock as they roll over outdoor debris or rough surfaces.

Some wheels are universal or indoor/outdoor. This means they are at a level of hardness between standard indoor wheel hardness and standard outdoor wheel hardness. Children's skates usually come with universal wheels. When moving from indoor to outdoor skating, more serious skaters prefer to switch wheels for best results.


(3) Determine high top or low top style quad roller skate

Step 3: Determine if you need high top or low top style boots

When it comes to high top and low top boots, unless you are going to stick with a specific skating style, it really comes down to the look you prefer. High-top boots have a more nostalgic look, while low-top boots have a more sneaker-like look and fit.

Low top boots are considered speed boots and are used for derby and jam skates. High top boots are used for art skates and rhythm skates.

Now, whether you are looking for quad skates or inline skates, indoor skates or outdoor skates, and low top or high-top boots, you can easily find what you need now! You can find more roller skates on our website.
