What are the major advantages of inline skates with 3 wheels compared to inline skates with 4 wheels? Driving with larger wheels brings a number of major advantages, such as: 

  • Less vibration , especially on bad road surfaces ;  
  • They last longer ;  
  • You are more agile ;  
  • You work best on flexibility at a higher speed 
  • They drive smoother and more efficiently;  
  • Roll longer after a push-off ;  
  • You can simply skate faster .  

However, the major disadvantage of skating on 3 wheels is that , especially for the beginner, you are higher and therefore more unstable. With an inline skate with 4 wheels you are a little closer to the road surface and you can push off more powerfully, which means you experience more pressure. This provides more stability. 

Focus on safety,
Never go out without properly protecting yourself . A good helmet is a must to make your rounds safely. 

When skating, also take other road users into account . You You can also reach high speeds with skates and you simply need more space than a cyclist or runner to be able to make your stroke properly .
