No matter if you want skates for training, if you like inline speed skating or if you are an elite speed skater, speed skates are the right skates for you.
Choose the right speed skates
There is a wide range of speed skates. If you need skates that can roll fast, but not necessarily skates that can be used for speed skating, you can choose skates with ankle support and smaller wheels than the wheels for speed skates. Speed skates used for speed skating have very big wheels to optimize speed. The frame and wheels are stretched significantly longer than the boot. The boots have a closer fit and not much padding. Furthermore the boots have very little ankle support to make them more flexible. This type is easy to recognize, as it looks more like a shoe than a boot.
Wheels for speed skates are made for high speed which makes them quite special. Besides the fact that the wheels are very big, they are also hard with a narrow profile to minimize road contact, and by that making the skate really fast. If you want more information about wheels, you can read the guide Buying wheels for inline skates.
What do I use my inline speed skates for?
When speed skating you can use either ice-skates or roller skates/inline skates. When the sport is performed on ice-skates, it is called speed skating. When the sport is performed on rollerskates/inline skates, it's called inline speed skating or inline racing. Inline speed skating can take place either indoor or outdoor. Outdoor inline speed skating is a racing competition. However, if you just want to skate fast and push your own limits, inline speed skates are also suited for that purpose.
