The Roll-Line RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame represents a culmination of a great deal of research in Figure Plate Technology both on the part of David Ripp of SkatesUS.com and Roll-Line of Italy. The new RING is the Professional Figure and Loop Skate that is engineered for Figures and especially for Loops.
The Roll-Line RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame IS the exact SAME Skate Frame as the DANCE (except without a Toe Stop). The Roll-Line RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame is also wonderfully great for Compulsory Dance (as it is the SAME action), Recreational and Rhythm Skating, where there is a desire to NOT have a Toe Stop and there is a great need for weeving and bobbing and quick changes of directions and edges, the Roll-Line RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate Frame is THE absolute BEST.
The RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate from SkatesUS.com takes advantage of its NEW innovative design utilizing a Wider Angle Steering Mechanism and ultra lightweight structure. The Roll-Line RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate (just like the Energy Titanium and Energy Steel) is forged from a solid bar of Ergal Aluminum Alloy and completely CNC machined. Ergal is one of the Strongest and Lightest Aluminum Alloys available and has a lower expansion coefficient and offers the best coiled-spring response. The Roll-Line Click Action adjustment system provides optimum, accurate, articulate, and consistent Action. The RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate features the strongest Steel Axles available and adjustable Pivot Pins and Does Not have a Toe Stop Mount. The design and materials of Roll-Line Skates from SkatesUS.com, provides athletes the proper support of the skating shoe and give the most sensitive control, the greatest and absolute fastest response available from any skate, providing a sense of great stability and action.
Roll-Line Natural Rubber and Urethane Suspensions both provide incredibly quick and fluid energy transmission from the foot through the skate to the skating surface.
The Roll-Line Natural Rubber Suspensions are available in three hardnesses and Urethane Suspensions are available in five hardnesses to provide the perfect skate alignment.
The Upper (Large) Suspension provides the Stability of the Edge, while the Lower (Small) Suspension creates the Deep Edges, Great Turns and Loops. The Suspensions, for Figures can be mixed and matched in both Rubber and Urethane and in Hardnesses to provide a VERY Custom skate Action.
Usually the Upper (Large) Suspension is harder, because it is carrying the weight of the Skater, and provides the edge stability, while the Lower (Small) Suspension is one or (more infrequently) two levels more flexible, providing great edges and changes.
For LOOPS it is sometimes suggested to use an appropriate Flexible Upper (Large) Suspension, considering the Skaters height and weight and the small diameter Loops being Skated, with the Lower (Small) Suspension configured two (2) levels Harder. This configuration provides a skate that reacts and feels like the old and no longer available Hodura skate.
The list below is from Most Flexible to Hardest and integrates Rubber and Urethane Suspensions.
Green = Rubber = Flexible
Natural (Brown) = Rubber = Medium
Clear Green = Urethane = Extra Flexible
Grey = Urethane = Flexible
Clear Blue = Urethane = Medium
Yellow = Rubber= Hard
Clear = Urethane = Hard
Clear Yellow = Urethane = Extra Hard
The RING Professional Figure and Loop Skate comes with one (1) set of Urethane Suspensions (with the hardness based on the Frame size (the factory standard), and (1) set of Rubber Suspensions. Other hardnesses and combinations may be purchased separately, and a set of tools.
When we found out the Ring was going to be discontinued, we purchased the majority of the inventory available from Roll-Line in Italy.
