The K2 VO2 100 X Pro inline skates are the high end fitness skates you've been looking for. Great for athletes looking for a solid training session or a fitness inline skater looking for a top of the line skate with all the bells and whistles, the K2 VO2 100 X Pro is the skate you want. When you pull up to the park you won't have a whole lot of time between parking and skating thanks to the K2 Speed Lacing System found on the K2 VO2 100 X Pro. This system utilizes a grab, pull and lock system which is quick and effective both for putting on, and for taking off the skates. To give you the best cornering and top speed combination, the K2 VO2 100 X Pro offers K2's Performance Hi-Lo Frame which puts two 90mm wheels in the front and two 100mm wheels in the rear of the skate. This will help you get up to speed quick, corner easier, as well as maintain a top speed when skating. When you're out skating you will notice a nice flow of air going through your skates thanks to the Vortech Ventilation System which pulls out the stale air and forces fresh air through. Matched with the Vortech Ventilation System is an Antimicrobial footbed which keeps the stink out of your skates.
K2 skates are going to fit the same as your everyday athletic shoes

Compared to my oxygen 1.1s these are much faster but definitely more comfortable. A little harder to maneuver but understandable considering the huge increase in wheel size. The wheels last considerably much longer too. These skates are awesome! The laces are a bit fiddly but hold jut fine.
After roughly 20 years of use, my first K2 skates finally succumbed during a training session when the top buckle strap split. (And miraculously, a short tie down strap appeared on the road to allow me to finish the skate!) So, I could not even imagine another brand after a run like that. The X Pro was a step up from my old 80mm, ABEC 5 wheels but felt, very quickly, like an old friend, albeit, a much faster friend ; ) Fit was perfect to the same size 10 purchased years ago. I had just bought my girlfriend her first pair with the BOA system and was hoping for that system. I was leery of the tightening system on this boot but was pleasantly surprised at its ease of use and function. I have no use for the brake and only wish the skate came with the axle required once the brake is removed. I would not hesitate to move up to this skate if you have been skating a smaller wheel, comfortably.
A: These are sized in men's sizing so you will want to drop a full size from your regular shoe size to make up for that. These are not currently available in a size 7.5 so I would try the size 7 if you are keen on these skates.

A: Well, sure to a point. These are not going to be the best for that type of skating as they have a slightly larger wheel and a more extended frame aimed at achieving higher speeds. For a good mix of speed and maneuverability you will want to take a look at some urban skates. These skates have medium sized wheels on a shorter frame making them much better for maneuvering in a quick manner.

Q: Is this skate light compared to other skates because I would like to be very agile in the rink and in outdoors. How would it compare to a hockey skate?
A: In the realm of fitness skates, yes, these are going to be very lightweight. They are not going to be quite as light as hockey skates but they will definitely be more comfortable for longer skates. I bounce around from roller hockey to fitness skates and the difference in weight is not going to hold you back unless you go with a beginner fitness skate which will often be heavier.

Q: Can you remove the brake and does it come with the tools to remove it. Also how do you remove it
A: The brake is removable, it requires an allen wrench which is not included. You can use a standard allen wrench set or purchase a skate tool from us. I always recommend grabbing a tool and keeping it with your gear. Removing the brake is fairly simple but you will find instructions on how to do so inside the skate's box.
