I bought this skates for my boyfriend as a present. Generally we are pretty happy, they feel good, run smoothly, good sizing, the design is ok, simple and black as we wanted... The only thing is the brake, compare to mines, the brake looks just like a piece of hard plastic attached to the boot. Mine is more like a hard rubber so it actually helps braking. He just can't brake with them, it makes noise but doesn't make much friction with any kind of floor. I have to say mines are from decathlon as well, not much more expensive and I'm really happy with them, bought them years ago tho.
And thanks but we don't want to return them ;)
It would be nice if you just improve the break for the upcoming designs. Thanks a lot, because I know how well you take the ratings and actually care about it and use them to improve and satisfy customers. It's such a great chain. Love decathlon!!
Pretty good in general
The break doesn't really break, it's like plastic
Found these online but was afraid I wouldn't find my size (11) nor did I know if they will be comfortable. When I checked online it kept showing me that the size 11 was was out of stock in my local store. So after a week of checking other stores I just decided to go to my local store to see what they had. Surprisingly enough they had every single size on display in store including mine. In both pairs so you can try them out.
The design: When I saw these online I did not like them one bit. However once viewing them in real life they looked the part not the cheap looking in the slightest. Side by side with the FILA brand skated they are the same only difference being the name. Once I tried them on I was sold. No questions I was buying.
About the Feel and Fit: Well I never really roller bladed ever prior to me purchasing these. The skates felt durable and solid once fitted on. Very smooth rolling in store. Out on the streets it handles well and a pleasure on smooth terrain.
The brake: The break sucks. I tried stopping in a controlled manner but it made such a hideous screech that I was getting odd looks. On top of that the braking took way too long and wasn't very effective as hoped. Saying that I removed the brake using the allen keys (that came with the skates) on my second ride.
How they are holding up: After a few uses they looked battered up. I guess I was trying to do T stops and all sorts very badly and still need a lot more hours of practice. Saying that the skates are built well and holding up well although the mid strap did take a scuff and I noticed the strap fraying a little. Don't really need the strap just an extra measure really.
The wheels: The wheels are 76a, they are extremely grippy. So much so that it made me slip up and loose my balance a few times. When I was doing long strides at speed it felt like the wheels didn't push away as smoothly and felt like I had glue on them if that makes any sense (im sure its just me with this issue).
The wheels are soft and are getting worn very quickly. Yes i have been doing T stops but Ive only used them 3 times for a hour or less and they already have lost their shape and I am already looking at getting some new harder wheels. Did not expect them to grind away so fast.
Summary: Overall I think they are some really good skates for a novice or the occasional skater. They are very reasonably priced for what you get and all in all a great durable and cool looking pair of skates.
Safety: I'm not one to preach safety as someone who always thought pads were embarrassing to wear. I ended up twisting my knee, to the point I was not skating for a while with the pain still in my leg as I type. I was going down hill, lost control and you know the rest. Anyway you really need to get a full set of padding Knees, Elbows and wrist guards which is priceless. As I'm still new to this I would not risk skating without the gear now. Nothing cool about scabbed and bleeding flesh.
Cheapest skates for adults. Ideal to learn in.
All palastic build. Wheels wear fast if you T-stop
Good quality and good price
My first pair of skates, really comfortable and easy to use. Great if you're just starting out or a bit rusty.
Great if you are just starting off. Would recommend you but the helmet and pads too

Comfortable and made with good material.

When I think about sports the first store I will get in my mind is decathlon. The overall experience with staff and product was really amazing. I hope they will continue the same
My 9 year old son is using them for almost 1 and a half year now.the only problem we faced is about wheels screw parts.along with daily usage their screws becoming loose.i want to check availability of new screws as for now one wheel of roller skate is separated.shoes refrence no is 8216987.
Thanks for reaching us for your query, we do have the spare screws available for Oxelo Fit 3 man inline skates. Reference model code for the same is 8111799.
If your kid is using it on daily basis, I would recommend the service/maintenance of skates on monthly basis at our workshop (In any Decathlon Store).
Our experienced workshop teammates help you out to keep those pair of roller skates in good condition for the longer usages. That too at a very nominal charge.
For any further assistance, kindly feel free to contact us.
Thank You & Have a nice day.
