K2 Radical 100 Review

So far I've been on my new K2 Radical 100s for probably 10-12 miles. I went out Friday after work for a lap around Creve Couer lake. By the time I was done I was completely exhausted. The Radicals definitely have far less ankle support than I am used to, and after my first day on the skates that made a huge difference.

Today I went out again with Eric and we skated our usual two laps. These skates are fast, exceptionally fast. The fit is great though I'm going to Heat Mold them later this week, probably before I skate again. If you're in the market for a pair of long distance fitness skates definitely look into the Radical 100s. The biggest change for me so far, besides the ankle support, is the turning radius. I am far less nimble on these than my older skates with much smaller wheels. But these skates weren't made for agility, so if I want to do some hockey stops I'll throw on my other pair of K2s or my hockey skates.

UPDATE July 2010: I ended up breaking my K2 Radical 100s a while back, the frame broke the bottom of the boot. I called Zappos and they ended up refunding me the money! So I now have K2 Radical Pros and love them!

Wow! I didn't realize that you could break the frame on one of these skates! I just got my new pair of K2 Radical 100's...I was wondering if anyone else noticed how much harder it is to turn on them. I'm going to try them in the A2A race this weekend...I guess my next pair will have to be the Radical Pros. Happy Skating! Thanks for sharing!
