Unpaid/unbiased review. My fav skate brand having used Bauer turbos in the 80s. These guys know there stuff and offer a great service and knowledge. what more can I say. Price was good and happy to recommend this store to anyone looking to buy skates. The wheels were recommended to me by a friend and they are truly smooth- much better than my old kryptos as I remember them. ABEC5 bearings arent that great for me so I will be upgrading to better smoother and faster bearings soon and look forward to some brites ceramic to get the best performance. I wear my skates loose so not too bothered about the laces. the upgrade to colour laces was the best £3 spent changing the look of the boot to lime green/black instead of white laces which were included in the box. Post and packaging was charged at £5 so I expected a decent service from DPD and wasn't disappointed with timed delivery to my door (I live in a block of flats) and all went smoothly. My advice when buying skates is to check the price difference between stores, check the standard equipment supplied, things like bearings toe stops and colour parts. Really happy with the choice here as I could select all parts and colourise my skates the way I wanted them to look with the red wheels. Well deserved 5* review and will be back to buy more stuff and recommend to my skate group in Lincoln.
Brought a pair of xls from quadskates based on best price online and best advice. thanks to Steve who talked me through the whole process and after calling around a few places, had the best knowledge out of all of them - also remembered old bauer turbos (rip) and his old shop called Buddies in Pitzhanger Lane in 1980s - a real pleasure to speak to this chap again and so happy to remember all the good times skating around Ealing/Perivale. If ure unsure about buying skates online - give these guys a call - far superior knowledge and best price online - far better than other so called wanna be pretend "skate shops" who sell heelys inline skateboards - these guys have been selling quads for a very long time (40+ years), verified from a very old, reborn skater. 11/10 stars, if that's possible?
