How Do Roller Skates Work?

Roller skates feature a baseplate that supports back and front hangers – a lot like a smaller version of a skateboard.
This baseplate and hanger assembly has urethane bushings that allow your skate to turn when you lean your foot, and you can tighten or loosen these to suit the way you skate.
The wheels roll because they’re fitted with our signature Impala Pink ABEC-7 Bearings – offering a smooth but secure ride for the streets or by the beach!
