Inline skates with 3 wheels have significant advantages: They are faster, lighter, lower and shorter. With three wheels, a larger wheel diameter can be used for the setup. The track is shorter, bringing the center of gravity down and is lower compared to a skate in the 4 wheels are used with the same diameter. The weight is reduced because of 1 not necessary wheel with bearings and spacers. And finally larger wheels are simply faster in the final velocity.
The shell is very rigid and gives a lot of support especially to nordic skating beginner. This solid shell also protects the skaters feet from any heavy impacts that might appear during off road skating. The shell is made out of a special composite compound that is very stiff thanks to the 10% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material. It features a 165mm long mounting distance including an along slot which enables the skater to adjust the frame frames to the side in order to find the perfect skating position. The bottom is ventilated.
