What support do these freeride skates have?
The cuff (the plastic part on top, also known as a "spoiler") has been developed with one aim in mind: offering optimal foot support. To do so, it is moulded with a mixed composite with 15% fibreglass. And for (even more) support, the skates have 2 micrometric buckles and laces.
What is the impact protection?
Built-in shell and plastic pads on the forefoot protect the skate while sliding or in the event of a fall.
Are these skates versatile, or can they only be used for freeride?
The go-to versatile skates with excellent glide quality (ABEC7 and 80mm or 76mm wheels for sizes 3½ to 5) and great handling (short, durable plate that withstands jumps and slides). Two different wheel sizes based on shoe size: 4 to 5.5: 76 mm / 6.5 to 12: 80 mm to guarantee that each one is very manoeuvrable. The plate can be slightly moved to the left or the right to suit your needs.
What braking system do these freeride skates use?
The full brake, pad & brake mount can be fitted to the left or right foot (supplied unmounted). The brake mount is available from your Decathlon store Workshop. The brake pad is available in the roller skating department (depending on the store) or online.
What is extruded aluminium?
Extrusion is a thermomechanical manufacturing process in which a compressed material is forced through a die (tool that shapes it into a fixed profile). Since it has not been folded or cut, the extruded part (for this skate, the plate) is therefore more solid and shaped more precisely.
How can you maintain/repair your skates?
You can replace parts or repair your skates using the after-sales parts available in store, online and at your local Decathlon store's workshop.
How can you make your skates last longer?
To extend the lifespan of your skates after skating through water, dust or sand, take the wheels off, dry them and degrease the bearings with a dry cloth. Find our advice and tutorials on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/oxelo/videos
How can you make the wheels last longer?
It's normal to switch your wheels around because they don't wear out evenly. The reason? We often skate with our feet sloping slightly inwards when we push off and turn. If you want to stop them wearing out, switch your wheels around (in pairs).

How are our products tested?
All of our skates have been lab tested. These tests validate their compliance with the European standards for skates, as well as their resistance to wear. As well as lab tests we do field tests - some measured and others based on the testers' opinions - to really put the product through its paces. The result is a tested, proven product.
