Hi, I’m Tim Phang. I’m 23 years old. I’ve been skating for about 12 years. I’m from Arlington, Virginia which is right
outside of Washington, D.C. I’m now sponsored by Universal Skate Design,
and I’m going to be talking to you about rollerblading. The main difference between roller skates
and roller blades is the configuration of the wheels, so on roller skates the wheels
are generally setup sort of like a car, and you have two wheels in the front and two wheels
in the back. On Rollerblades or in line skates the wheels
are setup in lines so offer a wheel often are within one item which is called the frame. You also notice that on Rollerblades uh are
these particular Rollerblades there is, there are no blades. Roller skates generally have a brake in the
front uh some roller blades have the brake at the back, since these are aggressive skates
there is no brake there is also there is a large gap between the center two wheels which
allows you to grind uh a grove in the side of the boot and also a wider sole area. Aggressive skates also have usually a flexible
cuff to allow you to bend side to side, forward and backward, they also tend to hug your ankle
pretty tight but on low cut uh that gives you the flexibility that you need when you
are grinding or jumping around.

    Rollerskating is definitely harder than inline skating. Because of the shorter wheel base. Why I give props to #chicksinbowls.
