What does it weigh?

A little ago I was gifted some quad skates. They are beautiful Jacksons and fit perfectly (thank-you again Carrie). Whilst I was moving my plates over I took the time to weigh each component. Per skate:

Component Weight (g)
Plate, with nuts 523
Boot 499
Wheels and bearings 497
Toe stop (half worn) 78
Mounting hardware 23
Foot pad/cushion 14
Lace 13
Total 1,647

So you’re carrying about 1.5Kg on each foot and that’s why it’s called endurance!

Flattr this!
