Rollerblade Replacement Brake Pads

Read Description

Just like with a car, your brakes are one of the most important things on your set of inline skates. When your brake pad starts to wear down, you'll find it harder to brake at a moment's notice, until you find that you can't stop at all. In an optimal scenario, you'll have a funny story to tell your friends, in the worst scenario, you'll end up with some gnarly injuries that could take months to heal. If you've noticed that the brake pads on your inline skates are starting to wear out, you need to replace them as soon as possible. There are two types of brake pads for inline skates: traditional and ABT. In the traditional model of an inline skate brake pad, the manufacturer attaches a hard rubber pad to the back of your inline skates, generally near the axle of the rear wheel. While the brake pad is usually on the right side, it's not uncommon to find it on the left side on certain models of inline skates. With a traditional brake pad, you use friction to slow your skates, eventually coming to a halt. After a period of time, the friction begins to wear down your brake pad, especially if you find yourself putting tremendous amounts of pressure on the brake pad. Once the pad starts to wear down, it's time to replace it. You'll typically find that professionals and long-time skaters prefer the traditional method, as it gives you more control over your braking. In an ABT braking system, the manufacturer affixes the brake pad to the front of the skate, activating a braking arm once you activate the pad. Unlike a traditional braking pad, you do not need to tilt your skate to activate the ABT braking pad, making this the preferred braking method among most beginner inline skaters. While you don't have the precise control over your braking that you would have with a traditional brake pad, you are less prone to losing control when using an ABT braking pad.
