I was never much of a rollerblader and found these easier to learn on. It still took me a couple of days of not giving up to start enjoying them, but now that I don't look like a fool on them, I really enjoy them! It takes trying a couple pairs of shoes before I found the ones that work best, but I suppose that's natural as everyone will have different shaped feet.

    Comments about Cardiff Skate Company 3-Wheel Skates:

    We got a pair of the Youth Cruisers and Adult S1 series. We got the additional ankle strap for the Adult skates. These were easier to learn how to skate in than inline skates. If anyone has problems it's because they didn't watch the tips & tricks on their website. My kids LOVE these and all the kids in the neighborhood can use them since they can fit various sizes with a stretch of the skate! Once you learn the basics, it's smooth sailing and freedom on the pavement! They are also awesome for kids who have muscle weakness. They are a great way to help strengthen leg muscles for special needs kids. College kids can commute from class to class quickly. Kids can skate at the park Adults can exercise in a fun way. I can't wait to ask Santa to bring me my own pair now that my kids have them!

    • For nothing

    Comments about Cardiff Skate Company 3-Wheel Skates:

    This product looks great at first sight. I was in the store super eager to play with it and ride all day. So I did so, and it felt fine going in a straight line but when you have to turn. It's the biggest pain. I usually never write reviews to any products I buy. I honestly think they completely suck.

      Comments about Cardiff Skate Company 3-Wheel Skates:

      They are a nice sturdy skate, with a fine breaking system, and easy for balance.
      The ability to use your own shoes is a plus/ easy on and off. Can be shared with others.
      They are a bit too heavy which will take some getting used to.

      Interesting product but lacking

      By Peter

      from San Diego

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy To Put On Sometimes
      • Good for beginners

      Cons

      • Falls off easily
      • New Skating Motion Needed
      • Not Fit Wide Shoes

      Best Uses

        Comments about Cardiff Skate Company 3-Wheel Skates:

        A interesting and innovative product, however it has too many drawbacks. I have wide shoes (3E or 4E) and the heel of my shoes do not fit in the skates. My kids have regular wide shoes and normal shoes and they had problems also. the skates also are flat and the shoes tend to curl up in front causing the skate to fall off easily even while skating. The skate needs better straps to hold it on. Finally how you skate with an ice skate or roller blade does not work with these (nor even how you would skate with an old 4-wheel roller skate). The 3 wheel design and wheels off to the side cause problems with wheels hitting each other, and the skating motion is different because of the 3 wheels - it is harder to push off back and to the side because of the 3rd wheel.

        As I said interesting product but it needs design changes mostly in how it fits shoes and stays on. It just kept falling off my and my 2 kids feet while skating.

                Comments about Cardiff Skate Company 3-Wheel Skates:

                tried 3 different shoes and the heel slipped every time. The mechanism that contracts to fit the length of the foot does not have enough spring strength so the heel does not stay in place and eventually you are skating with the strap over the top of the foot as the primary leverage. Poor design really. Heard there's a strap for the heel. If so, it should have been included. I skate primarily with traditional skates and sometimes with rollerblades. The ability to do turns, skate backwards, etc... is not what this product was made for. These are for going straight ahead. I found the brake required too much flex of the foot to obtain quick braking. I

                    Comments about Cardiff Skate Company 3-Wheel Skates:

                    When I first got my S1's I, along with other CS owners had issues with ones foot coming out of the heel bed whenever one lifted the skate. The common thought was that a rear strap was necessary to keep your foot secure in the skate. Cardiff just addressed this issue with an accessory rear strap but honestly the strap should be included with the skate or retrofitted/provided @ no cost as this is a design oversight. It shouldn't be a $20 accessory, imo. I love my Cardiff skates and I'm very happy CSC has provided the rear strap solution but I still feel the skates should not be sold without it.
