Good skates, but great service
Comments:
Good skates for the price, but keep in mind that they are rockered. If you are a beginner, you might want to go with a different skate (depending on your preferences). I ended up returning this pair because the rockered frame wasn't working for me.

Inlineskates.com has amazing service, and they processed my return quickly and respectfully. 100% recommend purchasing from them

Sizing is a little off
Comments:
I typically wear a mens 10.5, and after reading previous comments regarding these blades running big - I ordered a size 10. MISTAKE. Recommendation to all: If you are in-between sizes, go for the next larger size and save yourself from the return fees.

Fast and furious
Comments:
I don't skate for like 10+ years.. So I was very concerned about the price of this product and the reviews.. cause I barely see any video of it on youtube or google ( I think it's a new product out there ) . I received my package today.. The design I loved, and looking for the bad review someone did for this product, I consider the person is wrong.. First because, The materials doesn't look cheap at all, And It's a GREAT OPTION for beginners.. The product it is ROCKER SETUP ( the website should include this ) and it's pretty fast.. I hope you guys enjoy it same way I did.


Also, To Open the bottom strap of your inline skate.. make sure you read the Q&A of this product to find out :)

Rocker wheel setup and an uncomfortable fit.
Comments:
The wheels on these skates have a permanent rocker setup that is not mentioned anywhere in the description. This means the front and rear wheels are higher than the two middle and do not touch the ground when standing on flat land. This is a part of the frame design and not adjustable.

Found them to be quite uncomfortable. I would classify my feet as pretty standard (not wide, flat, ect.) and my arches were killing me in about 5 mins. That being said I ordered a size 9 skate for my 9.5 shoe size and they fit pretty true in that regard.

There is a general cheap feel about the skate (granted, it is a cheap skate). Many of the plastics used are rather thin at points and did not give me a feeling that they were going to hold up for a while. Also one of the buckles on this skate is unnecessarily confusing and difficult to use.

In the end I returned this skate and spent a bit more to go with a different manufacturer which I am much much happier with. You're likely considering these because of the price, and for the price they are a relatively good design and build quality, really not much else out there for an urban type skate for the money. However I knew immediately I would not be happy with them long term, and I really wasn't looking for a rocker wheel setup. My honest suggestion would be to spend the extra money and pass on these. Sorry 5th element, but its the truth.

Love my skates!
Comments:
My second pair of skates since I was 11 (now 27). My first pair where skates from a certain supermarket and they worked fine for me as a kid, but these new skates are worlds apart in performance. They really just glide on both asphalt or concrete and they have solid a construction boot which is comfy once broken in (took maybe a total of 6-8 hours). Aluminum frame makes it light and durable, I also like the art design on it. Wheels are nice.... again I like the design on them and the bearings are smooth no noises yet in the last 3 weeks. Had a couple of axle screws that were not machined correct and wouldn't accept the allen key tool provided but 5th Element and inlineskates.com took care of sending me extra screws. Also I wear 9.5 shoes and 9 size in the skate worked great for me! All in all it was a great purchase and would definately recommend these to a friend!

Underrated Masterpiece
Comments:
5th Element St-80--my first pair of entry-level roller blades--is one of the ultimate blades that'll be tearing through asphalt and slipping past rocks for months to come.
Incredibly durable, and possessing strong frames that keep some solid wheels in place, the 5th element blades are great quality skates at a beautiful value.

Q: Is there a weight limit to skates cause i a bigger guy ad want to skate again what woud you recommend?
Asked : Aug 19, 2016
By : Drew, Portland
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Skate manufacturers don't post weight limits for their skates but as a bigger skater myself I can recommending spending some extra money for a more supportive skate. I personally skate on the Rollerblade Maxxum 9o's which are basically a hulked out version of this skate. The ST-80 is a great intro to urban style skates but might not offer the support a bigger skater is going to need. I would shoot for some higher end K2 or Rollerblade urban skates, these will offer a stiffer frame, and a more durable boot setup.

Q: What if I don't like the Rockered setup? is it possible to change the frame?
Asked : Jul 21, 2016
By : stephane, Brooklyn NY
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The rocker set up is permanent, but the frame can be removed and a different frame can be used.

Q: How the **** do you loosen the lower straps, I read the previous comment and to that did no help, the only mechanism that makes sense is how to tighten it and not how to loosen. jesus.
Asked : Jul 19, 2016
By : stephane, Brooklyn NY
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: To release the strap you will need to pinch it and push down. If you are having issues feel free to contact customer service at 888-271-7500 and they can further assist you.

Q: This is my first time with these kind of skates and how do you do the lower strap
Asked : Jun 20, 2016
By : Dre, Olympia washington
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The lower strap is a ratchet style strap, you will feed the strap through and then use the metal lever to ratchet it tighter. To release this, you will want to pinch the top section of the ratchet strap together and it will release the strap from being held.

Q: 1. Are these rockered skates or not after all( confused after seeing 2 different answers)? 2. what key do i need to change the wheels ? ( hex?)
Asked : May 11, 2016
By : Johnny, Bucharest
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Apologies for the misinformation, these do have a rockered setup. For the wheels you can use an allen wrench to remove the axle.

Q: Due to the rockered frame. Is it possible to change the middle wheels to 76mm to allow all the wheels to touch the ground?
Asked : Apr 29, 2016
By : Dangelo, Cypress Texas
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: I don't believe this would achieve what you are looking for. The amount of rocker is not that much so you would most likely end up with the middle wheels not touching if you went with 76mm. If you are not looking for a rockered skate I would recommend the Rollerblade RB 80 or K2 Midtown.
Answered : May 02, 2016
By : Chris
Q: Would it be possible to change the wheels to a soft set of wheels, for indoor use? I understand that these are made for outside, but they were the best pair I could find for the cheap price
Asked : Apr 26, 2016
By : Dangelo, Cypress Texas
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Yes, you can swap out the wheels with whatever wheels you want to. The maximum wheel size is 80mm so you won't want to go any larger than that or they won't fit.

Q: are these a good pair of starters and i want to stay under 180 dollars and if not what would you recommend.
Asked : Apr 19, 2016
By : chase, bonaire
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: It depends on the style of skating you are looking to get into. These are urban skates and would be great for beginner to intermediate urban skaters, but please note they do not come with a brake so you may want to look at a pair of urban skates that come with a brake. If you are not looking for urban style skates I would recommend a pair of recreational skates under $200 as these will offer a brake system, a comfortable boot and a wheel size that will help with stability.
