Specially made for fans of recreation, the new Cardiff 3 wheeled skates will soon become a synonym for a fun and easy way to get around town. Produced by the California-based Cardiff Skate Company, the skate brings together the best of inline skates and strap-on roller skates and it will surely prove an exciting way to get to your office, gym, college, grocery store, best mate’s crib or any other destination on your daily route without lugging around an extra pair of shoes to change into once you get there.
Unlike the typical rollerblades, Cardiff Skates feature the latest Tri-Skate Technology™, a three-wheel setup in delta formation with the fourth rear-centered wheel used exclusively for braking. According to the producer, this particular design promises “unique maneuverability and excellent stabilization while both skating and braking.”
Also, the one-size-fits-all principle guarantees equal degree of comfort for children and adults alike. No need to take off your favorite pair of shoes – just step on and you’re good to go. The skate instantly adjusts to your shoe size by means of a spring-mount system – the front part of the skate slides back to grip the front of your shoe and keeps it tightly fixed as you skate on. Cardiff skates also feature a ski-boot-style ratcheting binding system which does away with tiresome laces, Velcro straps, buckles and binds.
The skates are fixed with 100mm wheels, ABEC 5 bearings and aluminum spacers for high performance and additional stability, and the frame is made of anodized aluminum which guarantees years’ long service and in that even leaves behind a lot of classic inline skates. With your Cardiff skates, you can also purchase a casual backpack designed to carry your skates, laptop, books or anything you might need while skating around your best-loved streets and parks.
