Inline Skates and Quad Skates — What’s the Difference?
The most obvious difference between inline roller skates and quad skates is how they look. Inline skates have anywhere from two to five wheels per skate, all arranged in a single line, whereas quad skates have two front and two back wheels per skate.
Another difference is their function. Inlines provide more agility and speed, making them the preferred skates for outdoor skating and endurance workouts. Quads, on the other hand, provide better balance and more ankle support, making them the skates of choice for artistic skating and indoor track sports such as roller derby.
Is Inline Skating Good Exercise?
When inline skating, you’ll need to use the muscles in your glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves to maintain speed, and you’ll have to engage your core to keep stay balanced. This makes using inline skates a great form of exercise if you’re looking to build strength in your core, hips, and legs.
What Gear Do I Need to Stay Safe While Skating?
You could reach some serious speeds on your inline skates, so it’s important to use protective gear whenever you’re on them to keep yourself as safe as possible. Whether you’re skating as a hobby or for sport, the most important piece of safety gear is undoubtedly the helmet.
As well as a helmet, we also recommend investing in knee pads, wrist braces, mouth guards, and more to reduce your chances of injury even further. Check out our entire range of protective gear online today and keep yourself as safe as you can be while you skate.
