Commencing Skate Product Reviews

I have begun writing reviews of new products at Skate-Parts.Com and Runaway Skate as a way to help customers better understand the products they are considering and make an informed decision. From the feedback I have received I believe that this is especially important for roller skates and inline skates as these are a product most people expect to be able to use for quite a time. This would be followed by wheels for skates and boards.

To kick it off, I’ve put together two reviews so far, one for each site, both on roller skates. Initial further reviews are going to be focused on roller skates, inline skates, longboards, wheels and trucks. We’ll go from there and see what happens!

The reviews use slightly different formats with different appearances.

You can check them out at:

  • Crazy Skates VXi Review on Skate-Parts.Com – HERE.
  • RD Roller Derby M4 Viper Skates Review on Runaway Skate – HERE.

I’m interested to see how it goes and what the feedback is from customers.


The Unique Creature Wrench Cruiser Skateboard

We’ve got in a rather unique board at Skate-Parts.Com at the moment. Designed by Neil Heddings of Creature Skateboards, I give you the Creature Wrench Cruiser Complete Skateboard.

Check out the photos:

These crazy green Creature skateboards come standard with Bullet 130 Trucks and OJ 60mm 78a Hot Juice wheels, so get on one and enjoy it!

What do you think should be the new Skate-Parts.Com logo?

We’re running a poll to help decide which logo we should go with for the new branding for Skate-Parts.Com. It needs to be memorable and ideally something that has some form of symbol or emblem that can be used to represent us with or without text. What do you think? Let us know in the comments or by voting on the poll here. It would be greatly appreciated!
