What LRG Skates on:

Need advice on what skates and pads to buy? Upgraded your skates/pads/wheels and want to sell the old ones? Want to let the new girls know they can borrow your sweaty old kneepads? This is the place.

Skate - Size 5 Reidell 965 boot (too big- about to mount up size 4.5 split last 595 boot)
Plate -130mm Roll Line Mistral plate with transparent blue cushions.
Toestops - Roll Line toestop
Knee Pads - Rector Fatboys (my Smith's scabs cracked)
Knee Gaskets - None
Elbow pads - Anarchy size M (too big)
Wristguards - SFR Small
Helmet - A variety depending on what day it is.
Main Wheels: Atom Jukes (alu hubs)

Now moved to size 4.5 split last 595 boot and couldn't be happier with it.
