Advantage Pro XT W is an excellent recreational beginner model with pertinent features for complete comfort and control at a great value. Ideal for someone looking for a lower price, great fitting, quality skate. Bladerunner uses some of the Rollerblade know how of making skates but scales it down just a bit with little compromise to make it more affordable. The liner is very comfortable, the structure is supportive and the closure system locks the foot in the skate securely. The built in composite frame design allows the skate to be closer to the ground for a lower center of gravity which helps beginners with stability, shock absorption and control. Wheel and bearing combo are perfect for the beginner so the ride is not as intimidating but still provides a smooth easy roll.
