Some experienced skaters feel that LandRoller Terras are a little heavier, a little slower and less maneuverable than many premium speed or hockey inline skates, but they are not targeted to speed or hockey enthusiasts. Landroller Terras are for any skater. Rocks, gravel and other irregularities are my weakness, so I find the multi-surface capability and the big wheel stability are attractive enough to offset any minor differences in technique or speed that are part of the user experience. Pros Multi-surface capabilities and stability.Easy-to-use responsive braking.Smooth ride.Suitable for most traditional skating techniques. Cons Men's size 12 is the largest skate available.Slightly heavier than traditional recreational inline skates.This skate is no longer in production, but a few new and many used Terra models are in the inline skate market. Description Originally designed as an all-terrain skate.Large wheels support a smooth ride, turning options, responsive braking and the ability to skate on many surfaces.Out-of-line wheel configuration provides superior stability and helps shorten the user's adjustment time.Hybrid boot gives support where it’s needed and comfort where it counts.Heel brake is interchangeable from right to left and is easily replaced.Unique, eye-catching design. Guide Review - LandRoller Terra Inline Recreational Skate The LandRoller Terra skates initially caught my eye because of the unusual design. They look really cool. And according to the manufacturer, the cool look has an important function. LandRollers were initially designed as all-terrain skates, and feature a patented Angled Wheel Technology™ that allows large wheels to be mounted on the skates while still keeping a short wheelbase and low center of gravity. However, the off-road features combine to give them good performance on all surfaces. So, they are marketed more as a recreational multi-surface solution and are delivered with all-purpose large wheels. Off-road wheels may come later, but are not currently shown as an option in the online stores.In spite of the unusual configuration of this skate, you will not need to learn to skate again. Or, if you are a new skater, any inline learn-to-skate training program you choose will work for this equipment. The LandRoller Terra may appear to be quite different, but since the actual surface contact points for the wheels are similar to other inlines, a skater can use traditional skating techniques with few adjustments. These skates also feature a good traditional braking system that resembles the rear braking system on recreational inline skates. Videos on the LandRoller site show the range of maneuvers and stunts that an experienced skater can execute.Overall, these are great skates to own for fun on trails, but there is enough stability on rougher surfaces and surface changes to consider them for city rolling, too. Off-road wheels are not available, so the concept that inspired these skates has not been explored.Three Models Are Available: Women’s Terra 9Men’s Terra 9Apolo Anton Ohno Limited Edition Accessories Include: Shoulder StrapEasy Grip carrying handleReplacement wheels with shielded bearings Brake arms and padsBaseball caps and tee shirts The same Angled Wheel Technology™ is available on the Landroller Mojo inline skate package which now offers updated performance, some new features and a lighter overall weight.
