I come from an ice hockey background, so this sounds interesting. It is some times difficult to get a good toe-kick with inline, especially when the front wheels get worn down.
I know you haven't had them too long, so some of these are maybe more for Eric.
How durable does the chassis seem to be?
Does it seem like it would hold up to shots against it?
How does it do when doing hockey stops? From the few pictures I've seen I can't tell how the spring system is built, so can't tell if the chassis would buckle or do anything odd with the force from stopping.
The website makes it sound like the chassis is meant more for sharper turns than an actual hockey stop. How has your skating changed with the chassis?
Do you have to get used to the pivoting of the chassis and you go up on one of the sets of 2 wheels?
Any pics of the skates, I couldn't find many on the Newron website.
Thanks, and good luck with the skates. It sounds like a very interesting idea.
For this, there is no doubt, our skate passes the test very easily, it has been tested very often. It holds like any other normal roller hockey skates. That is the first thing we checked, it doesn't cause problem. It is built in respect of your skills, turning, stopping, acceleration. The people who first tried it and tested it our NHL hockey players, because, at the time, we didn't know roller hockey players. It was Stephane Roy, Patrick Roy's brother, played for Minnesota, who tested it very stongly and Francis Bouillon from Montreal Canadians. We are aware you need your skate to be strong and it is, no doubt
