Rollerblade is a brand name of roller skates. Rollerblade, Inc. is the company owned by the Olson brothers who created the mother design of the roller skates we know today. From an old worn out pair of roller skates, the Olson brothers improved it to use modern materials.
You will want a softer wheel if you are using it outside. It absorbs the cracks, rocks, bumps,etc. But a harder wheel will go a lot faster and will last longer also. Hardness is measured on a durometer, with 0 being the softest and 100 being the hardest. Most of the inline skates come with a hardness of 78A to 82A. They can be used inside or outside. I would go with a 78A if you are going to use it mostly for outside skating. A beginning skater could go to a 70A and it would be ok. If you are skating inside, I would look for a 85A or higher wheel. But if you are new to skating, it is OK to stay with the 78A to 82A.
I love inline skating. It not only is a lot of fun but also gives me some great exercise. I have noticed over the years that new as well as experienced skaters do not know very much about the wheels. So I thought a short article about the wheels would be helpful.
