My Inline Skating Setup (2017)

My Inline Skating Setup (2017)


hey guys it’s me Tiago the french Inline skater I
often get asked about my inline skating setup so here is a video about it I
consider myself as a freestyle skier and I use case I have been built for this
task so let’s talk about my main scale these
are we redesigned an improved version of the spa highlight carbon saber and not
Kiba is a French brand best known for making very performant inline skate but
very bit pricy this is an excellent pair of skates and we really let us customize
or – the skates to our liking life a position of refrain brings to several
mounting slots I put my friend right in the middle but slightly turned towards
the inside which enables me to do both Hill wailings and toe wailings
comfortably I also tune the position of the curve a bit force
thanks to this special cast button another reason why I chose this skate is
that these are one of the only carbon skates but have abrasive pad on the toe
and both sides so you won’t destroy them back easily and oh my god the carbon
pattern looks gorgeous check that out for the frames I use the deluxe vq frame
that came to escape this is a lighter and even steeper version when the older
deluxe frame and I really enjoy these frames excellent to moulting to them up
with some civic street invaders and gyro x2r wheels these wheels have different
sizes I’ve put the smallest ones on the front and back of each skate this is
called recurring your skates what’s the point
this type of recurring highly increases maneuverability we usually use this for
freestyle slam the bearings they use are the wicked I l-29 Pro started using
these last year not disappointed I hate listen up my skates so I found a
weight enough to do with anymore I put some elastic laces from mr. lazy
it costs around 5 euros and there’s a lot of choice
now that we’ve talked about muskets let’s talk about what I took with me
when a ghost Katie this is my backpack it’s the large-size backpack from seven
but I like this is that there’s a lot of pockets organize my stuff there’s also
an airflow stuff on the back wrap prevents you from sweating from the back
inside this backpack app – Allen wrenches the drew one to remove the
wheels and the red one to remove the frame
I mean frames then I have a hook to hold my skate when I don’t want to put them
back on my backpack oh the next pocket I have some protection I usually never
wear protection but I keep it on my bag just okay my knee paws of a J form Pro
X’s they are very flexible to take the shape of the body but harden instantly
when there’s an impact awesome deck I might beat us above inline skating and I
like to use action cam so I take two GoPros with me the GoPro Hero 4 and Hero
5 I put them in these aluminum stuff so I can forget external microphone when
needed and skip recording I take a huge battery bank with me and use it to
recharge my used batteries at the same time I’m recording I can’t go outside
leave of music and I have already destroyed several headphones because the
cables got stuck and Yetta Yetta that’s why I use bluetooth headphones now the
Marshall major has a catchy sound and almost never falls from your head even
when you fall there’s a pocket where I put my slalom cones these are up
silicone 20mm inside the fuck kill and when I have to take my skates off I like
to wear comfortable shoes and these are the Nike Zoom pegasus 33 one of my
favorite after skating shoes I think that’s it for my maintenance
getting set up what’s your inline skating Sara I’ll do
my best to find the links to the products I’ve just showed in this video
don’t forget to subscribe for more cool videos I need your help to try to make
inline skating more popular so please help me by sharing my content with your
friends you can change everything think about it see you in the next

How fast your wheels broke and u need to change them ? I mean when i see your stoping style :))) if i do that 3 or 4 times , my wheels are off

Hi TIago I am following you for a while now.
I have a question which inline skates should I buy? As my first set of ''serious skates''.
Which kind of inline skates should I buy? Hockey, urban, fitness? And of course for a affordable price xD.
I am not a good inline skater at al :). But I want to try it again.

Thanks for sharing your setup. I 've been using K2 Il Capo 88mm wheels, rocker setup with Powerslide socks for 4 years now. They are good, freestyle, durable, and comfortable skates. I recently bought the new Kaze Supercruiser 3×110 trinity but havent tested them fully yet. Cu in the next video!

I think you also used Seba FRXs earlier on, what would you say, is it worth switching to High Light Carbons? AFAIK the carbons are not really much lighter, are they?

BTW, I don't understand why the high-end skate producers don't seem to offer any really light yet sturdy skates – if you are a big heavy guy it must be a different experience than if you're small and light, yet all the skates are kinda the same weight – except for the cheap bendy ones with insufficient ankle support.

As for the shoes, why not try walking barefoot – it strengthens the feet and ankles and as an additional benefit prevents all sorts of problems with screwed up feet at (not so much) older age, like bunions, warped toes, poor posture etc.

I rock some Seba Trix skates with Powerslide alpha mag pre-rockered frames, I prefer a hard wheel so I go with gyro 90a's and for bearings I use Oust moc 9 air's but I've replaced the steel ball's with ceramic.

0:33 Haha I was sitting in the library and laughed out loud ^^ Super great video!
My setup is the Flying Eagle F7 skates and their Portech Large backpack. I'm really happy about being able to carry the skates on the sides of the backpack. Makes everyday skating so much easier and especially when travelling 🙂
Oh and I also have my laces on my skates so I don't need to care about them hehe… And I'm just about to switch out the black stock wheels to some red fancy ones that I currently have on my old crappy skates, I think they might actually be the same model as the 72mm ones you use, Gyro F2R, but 80mm. Looking forward to getting some colour on the skates! 😀

I see you also buy at ProSkatersPlace in Toronto.
I order my Seba CIM skates there.
Pavel and Konstantin from ProSkatersPlace are simply the best in counseling and support.
I have 1 pair Seba Igor, Seba Highlight, Seba Highlight Carbon CIM, Seba Trix CIM.
I drive with Seba Deluxe Frame with Flat SetUp and Seba Street Invaders 80mm
My favorites are the Seba Highlight Carbon CIM and Seba Trix CIM. They are very stiff but still have enough freedom of movement.
For Summertime, My protective clothing consists of:
Bauer Re Akt 100 Helmet
187 Killer Pads Pro elbow protector
Triple Eight Pro knee protectors
Seba Gloves
And for wintertime
G-form protectors and Ruroc Helmet

Greetings from Germany and doing continue good videos!

great videos, Tiago! I have just bought my first inline skates (Twister 2017) a week ago, very good so far! when did you have your first pair? like how many years ago?

Hey Tiago! Just wanted to say thanks for your videos, they make my day and have great information. Love and high fives from Australia!

Hi Tiago, thank you for showing us your setup. Can you please tell me the brand of elastic laces you are using and where I may be able to order them from? I'm not a fan of tying laces on my high light's and as of right now I'm just not using any at all, which by the way, doesn't seem to be a big deal. None the less, I wouldn't mind having the elastic laces. Thanks again!

Seba fr1 and I don't really like them 🙁
They are too heavy and too bulky which makes slides more difficult

what kind of selfie stick do you use? So far the ones I've tried are either too short or too heavy for skating (of course I have weak forearms XD)

hi Tiago, i really love your videos. You are such a terrific skater. Thank you so much for always giving so much useful feedback and advice to all of us. You are the best!!!! I have a question please. So I am currently in the market for new inline skates. I'd like something in the urban/freestyle category which would allow me good maneuverability and speed. The one thing is that my forefoot is on the wider side. So skates that taper would probably hurt. I was looking at Seba, Powerslide, and Rollerblade. From rollerblade, the twister x 2017 model look pretty nice. from powerslide, the kaze and ultron looked good. seba tho has sooo many different models it is hard to choose. Maybe the seba high light. What do you think about all those models? Also it sucks that there are no stores in the NYC area that carry any of these. So i can't really try any on. I have to basically just order and return, order and return over the internet.

LOL I should do my own setup video. It would be fun, considering I'm using the same skates I've had since mid 90s… '^^ And maybe I could find out some information about them too, cause I can't find any, though I remember they did cost a lot of money back then and they were pretty decent skates (though they are plastic built they still handle rough treatment 20 years after, they have really great support and balance… They even have pre front-rockered frames). I have found the brand (Risport) is well known for doing high quality figure skates, but it seems they abandoned the freeskate type models years ago… 🙁

Hey Tiago, would you recommend the Seba fr2 84 skates for a relatively new skater for travelling to work? Or a softer skate like a K2 fit pro? I need help!

Thanks for making great videos. I just bought Powerslide evo hardcore and unfortunately the wheels keep working themselves lose. Any ideas if this is the bearing or the screws. The skates are only seven days old.

Love your other videos and your artwork. Plus your enthusiasm overall is contageous!

Why dont you wear any protection most of the time? is it because of you great skills that you are so confident or simply because you hate them. Im talking especially of the helmet loll

Oh Geez when you said a little bit pricey I was thinking 150-250 not 600 – 800 😵. Been following your videos for a while ( great work!) and was wondering what sorta skates I could go with for starting out and learning how to do all the cool stuff that you do.

Are these any good to use in like skating rinks with the right wheels? I wanna get into outdoor freeride/slalom but I don't live in the best area for it, but for now I'm staying at the rinks. I would say I'm advanced with my skill level compared to most people, but I'm not nearly as good as you. I'm just looking for some high-end, comfortable (preferably padded, the skates I have now have little to no padding and hurt my feet, but they're like half a size too big so that doesn't help), that'll last me a long time. Also, love the videos!

Great video. Can you explain what's the difference between having the normal cuff position to a forward one? Thank you. Love Seba Skates

Hello. Tiago am Baraka from Tanzania am asking how can I get SEBA High Light Carbon. The company that can do shipping to my country

Hi Tiago, I just have one question about the SEBA backpack – Does it feature a pull-out rain guard to protect your skate and cuffs from the rain? I saw a video where a smaller SEBA backpack had the pull out impermeable cover from the bottom of the bag and pulls out and over the backpack for when it rains and I thought that was a neat idea. BTW, if it doesn't have a rain cover – what do you do to stop your skates getting partially wet if they are on the backpack and it's raining?

Greetings from Los Angeles! I just subscribed your channel as I purchased Seba FR1. I wish inline skating was more popular over here. Sadly not many people skate here 😒

Hi tiago, I wanted to try elastic laces after seeing this video, I hate lacing my skates too. Does slipping in the foot damage the boot? And do they thighten well?
Thank you very much, looking forward your next videos

I don't know if you have anything to do with the closed captions or if a automated program does it but at 3:53 there is a bad translation. Also, have you ever done a video on how to position your frame for different kinds of skating.

Hi Tiago, can u let me know if aggressive throne skates can be used with urban wheels to the same inline skating tricks and moves? Couldn't find a video on this so wanted to ask u

Thanks for the video Tiago. When I rockered my skates, there is a slight chatter sound coming from the skates when the smaller front and back wheels are not turning. Is that normal?

I run FR FRX 80s with seba high cuff and purple laces. My frame is the silver r1 frames with
76 mm seba deluxe wheels on the front and 80mm street king wheels in the middle.

I always love your vids! I have $$ coming from taxes in about a week so I can get back into skating after 20 years off of skates. Also, my Supporters from Twitch want me to start producing YT content, so I plan to invest in a GoPro Hero 5 Session. For skates, I have my eyes on the Seba Trix 90s. I'm so excited to start skating again soon! Keep up the awesome vids! I love them!

Marshall Major 2 price on the Philippines? 2,599 pesos, that like buying 4 chicken bucket meal on Jollibee

Tiago! Your setup has changed since this video, but I was curious what advantages you got (if any) out of having 84A wheels in the middle and 85A on the outside. Are you still mixing hardnesses?
