The Metropolis SUV provides unlimited skating fun. Sandy surfaces, gravelstones or cobblestones are no longer obstacles that stop you from skating. The 125mm air tires work like shock absorber. The solid shell and aluminium frame are virtually indestructable.

Shell/Cuff: Rugged hardboot, lacing, 2 x buckles, X-Slot mounting system.

Liner: MY FIT FAT BOY medium liner; 100% heat mouldable - see instruction here.

Bearings: Powerslide ABEC 7

Brake: Heel brake included and can be mounted optionally.

Frame: Special width so is not compatible with regular skate wheels. 165mm mounting distance on the skates allows for setup on the boot with frames that are compatible with regular wheels.



These blades are huge. I think my missus was slightly embarrassed to be out with me on them. They do get looks but more curiosity than WTF. The boots are comfortable enough although I've got a slight niggle on my left inside ankle. I think that could be something with correct boot fitting that will get better. The rail on the bottom was easy enough to set so my balance was good. The tyres are what sets this skate apart. I used them along the ocean front in Nice which is reasonably smooth and along some of the roads and pavements which are a bit more crazy. These skates chewed everything up that I know would have been a bit more difficult in normal skates. The tyres do have more friction and so more rolling resistance than regular hard wheels. It took some effort to cruise at 13kph and I was was being passed by normal blades looking like they were putting less effort. I intend to use these on the tow path which is gravel and so they suit my needs.
