Four basic classifications of roller skates
1. Recreational skating (Fitness):
Generally refers to brushing the street, which is the most popular form of recreational roller skating. Some aging urbanites abroad, they regard roller skating as a way of fitness, just like running, or as a means of transportation. Therefore, there is no technical requirement for it, as long as it can slide forward, stop and turn. In addition, the outdoor roller skating activity of brushing from one city to another city is different from speed skating (speed) in that its speed is centered, and the brushing distance is generally less than 40 kilometers.
2. Aggressive:
It generally refers to extreme roller skating, which is a special form of sports in roller skating. These include "STREET" (block) and "RAMP" (U-shaped pool), each of which uses various techniques to deduce their own understanding of "limit".
Jump. This refers to jumping, which includes: style jump (StyleJumporFigureJump), stunt jump (AcrobaticJumporPureHeight), high platform jump (HighJump), diving (WaterJump). From the English explanation, you may have some understanding of these various jumps. For trick jumps, it requires a high level of technique, showing beautiful movements in the air, and now many technical movements have been registered, such as: theZulu, therucksack, 180°, 360°, thewizard, thekarate and so on. For stunt jumps and high jumps, the only difference is that high jumps take off from a platform and can jump higher to make more complex movements. For diving (WaterJump), from its English explanation, you may be able to guess that it is to jump from the throwing table to make various actions and then fall into the water.
3. Flatland Fancy Roller Skating (Slalomn):
This refers to the flat flower, which mainly includes two types: FreestyleSlalomn and SpeedSlalomn. At present, the popular flat flower staking mainly uses single-row roller skates. In some European cities, there are also double-row roller skates (quads) to play the flat flower staking. This kind of flat flower double-row roller skates are generally used for wheels. As soft as 78A, it is very different from the double-brand roller skates that we commonly use to practice figure skating on indoor wooden floors. The main reason is that one wheel is suitable for indoor use, and the other is suitable for outdoor use.
4. Freestyle Skating (FSK):
It is a very new roller skating project, and it is only two or three years old in Europe. Its main source of inspiration is the speed of Fitness and the skills of Aggressive, combined with Downhill, Speed, and Acrobaticrollerskating. It is a brand new way of playing that reflects the development of modern roller skating. In Europe and the United States, it has become a symbol of urban roller skating spirit.
The speed brake (Slide), here refers to the braking technology, sometimes called the flat ground braking (CessSlide), its purpose is to stop in a short time in different situations. Its content, style and difficulty factor are quite different from Slalomn. Because the gameplay is more exciting, many modern players classify it as FSK.
Downhill, here refers to downhill, from the name, we know that it should be the process of sliding quickly from a high mountain to the end of the mountain. Its risk factor and its difficulty factor are a challenge even for a relatively skilled speed skater. The speed of rushing down from a mountain can often reach 70kph-80kph, which is very difficult for untrained skaters. It's unbearable to go so fast. As far as their equipment is concerned, speed equipment is generally used, and a helmet and a full set of protective gear are required to be worn during the competition.
