Do you need to choose between glide quality and handling?
Thanks to the design of the Decathlon FIT 3 skates, no!
The composite frame, 76mm wheels and ABEC 3 bearings provide a glide performance that's suitable for beginners.
The monobloc frame cushions vibrations really well. It is reinforced with fibreglass to make it more rigid, and its length makes it easy to handle while remaining stable.
The soft 78A wheels offer better traction and dampen vibrations.
How do they stay comfy and fitted?
The boot is made from mesh which is light, breathable and comfortable. The foam padding added to the back of the liner, around the ankle, and to the tongue, also helps add comfort.
The "cuff" (the part of the boot that comes up your leg) is stiff in order to hold your foot and ankle in place. A triple fastening system (laces, rip-tab and buckle ) holds your foot snugly inside the boot.
How much do the FIT 3 women's skates weigh?
2.2 kg per pair in size 6½.
How can you maintain/repair your skates?
You can replace parts or repair your skates using spare parts available in store, online and at your local Decathlon store's workshop.
The parts you can change are the 76mm wheels and ABEC 5 or ABEC 7 bearings. The brake stoppers fit both the left and right foot.
How can you make your skates last longer?
To extend the lifespan of your skates after skating through water, dust or sand, take the wheels off, dry them and degrease the bearings with a dry cloth.
You can also make your wheels last longer by regularly swapping them around so that they wear more evenly.
What is the maximum weight these Oxelo women's skates can take?
These women's skates comply with the EN 13843 class A standard (adult inline skates). This standard applies to "Roller sports equipment - inline skates" designed for a person weighing between 20kg and 100kg. This European standard defines the safety requirements and the specifications for the test methods, markings, and information provided by the manufacturer, with the aim of reducing the risk of injury.
How can you make the wheels last longer?
It's normal to switch your wheels around because they don't wear out evenly. The reason? We often skate with our feet sloping slightly inwards when we push off and turn.
If you want to stop them wearing out, switch your wheels around! It's best to do so in pairs.
