Rated 5 out of 5 by from Experienced skater 15 years ago!!! I was 160 lb 15 years ago and was on skates 24/7 played on three hockey teams coached a kids team and refereed hockey in between games. Present 240 lb got new skates these boots and chassis have plenty of support for ankles and weight but always be careful after not skating for 15 years I stood up and went straight down on my but and laughed so hard I couldn’t catch my breath. The high low sits a little different than normal skates but helps use muscles different. Great alternative to jogging or running to loose weight. Shipping was prompt!!! Thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are good I live in key west Florida an the rink here has just been redone so in all the skates are holding up pretty well my last couple skates would fall apart on this rink in about 2 yrs either the toe would blow out or the boot wouldn’t hold up on the concrete one thing these seem to knick real easy on the boot almost as if the boots too soft but I did bake them an they feel some what molded but still pretty stiff over all it’s only been a month I’d say they are a step up from my alkali skates

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Skate! So far I love these skates but my feet hurt on the bottom like any new skate. I have noticed that they are breaking in really nice though and feeling better every time out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skate Just got my skate had them bake for a faster brake in time. Super happy with all the up grade from the xr400. Great grip with the wheels, abec7 bearing super smooth, the sold aluminum hilo fram and a real nice boot. It's all in all a super sold skate.

I am wondering what it means to bake my new skates.  I am 6 foot 1 inch and weigh 220 lbs playing aggressive style indoors.  What type of wheels should I get with new X-RAY 500 skates.

Asked by: Eboy
Baking a skate is a process of heat molding the skate to your foot. You would need to visit a pro shop or retailer with a specific skate oven to have the skates baked. There are a lot of great wheel options on the market. With your height and weight even for indoor play you would want to get a wheel that as a mid range durometer. For your size you would not want too soft of a wheel.

Is R the same thing as D in width?

Asked by: Memo
Yes, the R stands for Regular width and is the same as D width. Thanks!

Are these bakeable ?

Asked by: Chaboi
The XR500's are most definitely heat moldable. Wrong, boots become moldable around the XR300 and up.
