Inline speed skate frame for kids
This inline speed skate frame for kids provides the foundational 4 wheel set up for small wheel beginners ánd the 3 wheel configuration for built-in age and skill level upgrade!
Even experienced and strong pro athletes try to save weight in their equipment. For smaller and younger inline skaters, the weight influences the skating technique even more. A three-wheel set-up with 100mm wheels saves you 10% weight compared to a four-wheel set-up with 90mm wheels. Imagine saving 10% of the energy you put into moving your legs!
A three-wheel inline speed skate moves easier than a four-wheel skate. Basically, a young, small, and/or inexperienced skater learns skating quicker on a three-wheel setup because moving light-footed, all focus can be on technique. A 4 wheels skate is heavier to pick up off the ground, and they tend to ‘stick down’ on the ground for longer with each push, making a ‘fast feet’ acceleration difficult. On the other hand, a four-wheel skate provides more grip and stability and therefore more power transition. Kids grow fast. They can start with a three-wheel setup and switch to a four-wheel set up the year after. Growing up, having learned the right techniques and looking for more top speed, a four-wheel setup comes into play.
A three-wheel skate moves faster on shorter distances. Less weight means more leg speed. A four-wheel skate provides more grip and stability, which is better for the longer distances. The unique Neo Transformer chassis offers you to choose, within a minute, the perfect setup for a specific race.
Choosing the right setup is always a personal thing. Besides choosing the number of wheels you can also change the wheel diameter. So many choices, you just need to experiment. And it’s exactly this that makes the Neo Transformer the perfect frame for younger skaters that keep changing physically and technically.
