Are you taking up roller skating as your go-to hobby? Good choice! This activity has incredible health benefits and it’s extremely fun! But, you’re probably wondering which skates you should choose – inline or quad? Before you make your decision, check out the details of quad skates and inline skates:
Quad skates are better known as roller skates, and you’ve probably seen people skating in them at the roller rink or in Hollywood movies. Roller skates provide immense stability. If balancing is difficult for you, you’ll want to start out roller skating on quads. They help riders even out their center of gravity and allow for a smooth ride. It’s important to note that quads aren’t known for their speed. You likely won’t be racing through the park or whipping around tight corners in roller skates. But, nevertheless, quads are a great option to choose when you first start roller skating.
Inline skates, or rollerblades as many people call them, are great for speed and maneuverability. If you’re about to skate for the first time and you choose inlines, you may have a hard time; but it’s not impossible. You may want to practice first on a smooth surface with little or no obstacles blocking your path. Make sure you wear protective gear such as a helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist guards. This will ensure your safety if you fall.
