There is a lot of innovation going on in the inline skating world and this latest gadget is up there with the best of them. The Booster Blades unique design means they have all the advantages of normal inline skates, however have a mechanism which allows the rider to propel themselves easier and with less effort than conventional skates via a “stepping” action (check out the youtube video of the Booster Blades in action to see what we mean).
Moving the heel back engages the brake pad therefore allowing you to to slow down or stop easily. The lock-down mechanism makes putting the skates on and taking them off easy and is operated by pushing in a knob on the side of the chassis and twisting it one-half turn when the mechanism is in the down position. Twisting it back to its original position allows the knob to pop out again, releasing the lock.
