The roller quad is a practice of roller skating which had its golden age in the 80s with the worldwide trend of roller disco. This sport has long been put aside for several years in favor of inline skating, which has become popular much more easily , especially for families and children . However , quad skating is making a comeback with the growing appeal of 80's trends . A practice with a retro and avant- garde look that appeals enormously to current fashion advertising campaigns !
Also called a roller skate , the roller quad has four wheels mounted in pairs on an axle (truck in English ). The particularity of these skates lies above all in the layout of the wheels and the brake located at the front of the foot, unlike inline skates. Two different roller skating practices that now share the French roller skating market. In reality quad skating was created before inline skating, it appeared in 1863 following the invention and filing of a patent by James Leonard Plimpton . Then, roller skating became a rather "noble" sport in the Paris region with the establishment of many skating rinks in the capital , allowing the rental of skates .
In the United States, these ultra -trendy skates are linked to the fashion of the disco years and the practice of roller dancing . This practice influences artistic creation , films, photography and also fashion. Roller disco then arrived in France in the 1980s . After a century of success , the quad skate bowed to the triumphant arrival of Rollerblade in the 1990s and the appearance of inline skates .
This practice may have been put aside for several years , but quad skating is not dead . Quite the contrary , since the 2010s it has been gradually making its “ come back ” with films like Bliss or the creation of leagues which promotes the renewed interest and popularization of quad and derby!
The quad skate is therefore making a comeback in France and more particularly in the women 's sector with new trendy and recognized brands such as: Rio Roller, Impala Skate, Rookie and Chaya. These are brands with which we are proud to collaborate in order to offer you the best choice in terms of quad skate models!
