What is faster roller blades or roller skates?
If modern inline speed skates are compared to modern quad skates, the former are faster, in part due to the difference in wheel size.
Modern inline skates use 100 - 110 mm wheels, which roll much smoother than the smaller 62 mm wheels on quad skates, and therefore the skater loses less energy.
In the Berlin Skate Marathon, which is open to both inline and quad skaters, very few skaters use quads - and the elite and fastest recreational skaters all use inline skates.
Roller blades are much faster and better. The roller skates are not as flexible as roller blades are. It's much safer to wear roller blades than roller skates and roller skates are likely to trip you up than roller blades. Also roller blades have more control than roller skates.
I learned on Roller blades, but Roller Skates are best, since it is easier to learn. But, in my opinion, roller blades are more fun, so if you learn on skates, try blades afterwards. Hope this helps!
Blades let you get faster, but you can't turn too sharply. Skates have slightly more stability, and are better for learners, and you can turn corners sharper.
Roller Skates. roller blades
Roller blades are a type of skates that use multiple wheels linearly aligned. They contain the simple machines of the wheel and axle.
Ice skates are different because they have blades on them and they are designed differently than per Se roller skates. Roller skates have more padding and have wheels on them, while figure skates have blades on them. If one wanted to compare a figure skate to a hockey skate, for example, a hockey skate does not have toe-picks while a figure skate does. Hope this helps :)
The very earliest roller skates, c. 1820, looked more like roller blades than what we call skates today, but they were not very maneuverable. They were 're-invented' in the 1980s and were quite popular for about a decade.
Joseph McCoy invented roller skates that would be modified in the future to other forms like roller blades and ice skates. McCoy died in Kansas City, Missouri on October 19, 1915.
There were different types of roller blades invented that are considered the predecessors of those used today. However, it is believed that the first pair was made in 1735 in Belgium by John Joseph Merlin, and they were inline skates.
a skate deck can mean either a skateboard with out any of its fetures or also a rink where you put on roller skates or roller blades and just skate ~awestling96~
Well he just roller skated for the first time shown in his new video "my first time roller skating" and he looked like he enjoyed him self,,, but he roller blades and ice skates
Roller skates have wheels and ice skates don't
If you are referring to Quads no. In-lines are faster than Quads, and they're easier. I have been skating every Friday, from 7-10 for a year now at my local Roller Skating Rink and I had allot of trouble with Quads. I always fell, but In-lines are the easiest and fastest skates. Especially if you have good wheels.

I have a pair of roller skates. no.
Roller Skates has 186 pages.
it depends on what kind of skates. when it comes to rollerblades, speed ice skates smoke the speed of a roller blade, but when it comes to rollerblades and a regular ice skate, i would say they are about even
Speed skates are designed to fast. The skates are designed with alot of aerdynamics , but must be comfortable to. The answer is speed skates because they have longer blades making turning sharp harder but holding a fast speed easier and in more control.
Johns 9th Birthday Where: roller rink When: Friday, June 12th, 2:30 - 3:30 Details: Bring roller skates or roller blades Rsvp to 284-8674 or tell john at school
the roller skates are in build a bear outfitters
the quad roller skates are easier for beginners.
I'm doing a presentation on roller skates and I don't know.
Actually, roller skates were invented in 1760 by Joseph Merlin, of Huy, Belgium.
the man who invented roller skates was 100000000 years old
No. You can't but on Figure Skates you can get wheels put on them and then you will have Roller Skates

Wood and leather. See the history of roller skates linked below.
Action and reaction forces work while roller staking by the action force being that you and your roller skates move forward. The reaction force is when the roller skates slide backwards on the ground.
The speed skates have longer blades
ice skates or roller skates? both sports are good for your legs.
roller skates ought to be called 'patins en ligne' in French, but the usual way is to call them skates / rollers / rollers skates. Hence roller skating is most often 'faire du roller' instead of 'patiner', which is outdated.
A&W may have had servers on roller skates in some areas, but the A&W in my town didn't.
"(Roller) skates" is "scátaí rothacha"; the fish called 'skates' is 'sciataí'.
I used to play roller-hockey. I was always told that if you could skate in in-line skates you could ice skate. The balance and weight distribution is the same.
she skates is 'elle patine' (from the verb patiner) or 'elle fait du roller / du roller-skate' in French.
No, they're not the same. If you're roller skating or roller blading, you have a boot with buckles on it, and you have wheels on the bottom of the boot. You use them on land. If you're ice skating, you have a half-shoe, half-boot that's either white or tan colored (for the girls) and usually black (for the boys). There aren't any buckles on ice skates, there are shoelaces. On the bottom, there are blades… Read More
The skates don't produce energy, they enable the mechanical energy produced by your leg muscles to be used to produce fast motion, ie faster than you could run without them (probably!)
well, ice skates are custom made in a factory and they are spacial made, you actually can't take blades off ice skates because the they screw the blades on the ice skate and then they turn them upside down and there is no way to take blades off ice skates. but instead of doing that you can buy ice skates at and ice rink near you, there is a sho inside every ice skate rink… Read More
Two words, like figure skates, hockey skates, or roller skates .
Mariah Carey uses roller skates in the "Fantasy" video and "Fantasy" remix video.
I guess if you took off the blade and put on wheels you could but you cannot roller skate in ice skates
Not necessarily, though you may have a bit of an advantage in learning over someone who's never skated at all. One of the big issues is the same as that between roller skating and roller blading: skates automatically remain vertical; blades want to tip over to the side.
No you cannot because it is a source of speed faster than everage human abilaty,Good luck walking x
Roller skates :D
Yes, it is a real company that makes roller skates, protective gear, and things related to the sport. See the Related Links section for their website.
of course they do.
James Plimpton invented the roller skates with 4 wheels. He was a great man. He had a brother and one sister. The place where the first roller skating rink was in a hotel dining room.
Roller skates, ice skates, or just plain skates.
roller blades are like shoes with 4 small wheels atached to the bottom like this ----
Roller skates are very popular to this day... Although I bet you that people decided to stay indoors in the winter, rather than go rollerskating somewhere nearby... They probably thought- "Wouldn't it be cool if we could roller-skate on ice?" And vola! Ice-skates were born! Kinda a pathetic answer but hey! Hoped it helped!
