The K2 Uptown urban inline skates have some fantastic features making them a hard skate to pass up. Great performance from an aluminum frame and shock absorbing footbed meshes with unique features like glow in the dark accents to make a remarkable skate.
The K2 Uptown is in K2's lifestyle collection and one look at them it's easy to see why. The Uptown is a great skate for the city dweller looking for a funky and hip skate to take them uptown which is why the name is so fitting. The aluminum Free 243 frame offers a short wheelbase making turning a breeze while offering great power transfer thanks to the stiff aluminum. For when you want to get somewhere a bit faster the 80mm wheels and ILQ 7 bearings will oblige to the job giving just the right amount of performance while not being overly fast as to lose the control urban skates are known for. To ensure you get the support needed the K2 Uptown offers K2's aggressive cuff with a ratchet buckle top and Velcro powerstrap. And don't worry, if you feel like getting sketchy and jumping some gaps, the shock absorbing footbed has your back as well as your heels.
In a world of boring inline skates the K2 Uptown is here to break the mold. The K2 Uptown is definitely the skate you will want to check out.

A: Urban skates offer a more beefed up design so are going to be slightly heavier than recreational and fitness style skates. With that said the weight difference is not that drastic at all and really not noticeable once you are skating. I skate with both urban and fitness skates and the weight is never something that's on my mind when I skate with either.
