Exceptional Support For Learning
Bladerunner Advantage Pro XT
The foundation of any great skate is the structure (boot). The Advantage Pro XT is designed with a built in frame for newer skaters to have more control and response when skating.
Having more control enhances stability. The structure also lowers the center of gravity to help with balance.
Combine these things with the sleek, anatomical design of the shell and you have the makings of a high quality skate with great lateral support, fit and value to satisfy the needs of any entry level skater.
The ideal way to complement the fit and support of the shell is to have comfortable padding.
The lining is designed to improve the skating experience with strategically shaped and placed pads.
This cradles the feet in comfort and reduces foot fatigue for longer more enjoyable skating.
Ample cushioning in both the liner and tongue create a plush feel and ensure the feet are protected in every stride, push and forward flex.
Reliable Closure System
The buckle, powerstrap and lace closure system secure the feet inside the skates to enhance the fit and add additional support.
When learning, newer skaters tend to forget how important the closure system is.
Improper fit or support can compromise the performance and affect ones ability to skate. During the skate stride this system will securely support the instep and lock in the ankles to improve skating performance.
Smooth, Easy Roll – Bladerunner Advantage Pro XT
The wheel and bearing combination is perfect for a beginner.
Speed and control are balanced nicely to create a ride that is not as intimidating but still provide a smooth easy roll.
When learning, 80mm wheels will allow for easier turning while the ABEC 7 bearings will help the wheel spin more freely.
The end result is moderate speed with less effort for easier learning.

Find Your Skate Size
Use the chart above to help find the correct skate size.
Most skates follow your shoe size.
Once you have the correct size of skates it is always best to check the following items below to ensure a proper fit:
– The skate’s closure system should be secured snugly ensuring the heel is locked in. It also helps to give the heel a little tap on the floor to push it into the rear of the boot.
– When standing with knees bent or skating, the heel should be secure and have no to minimal lift. In the skating position the heel tends to settle back into the skate and demonstrate the true fit. A skate that is too loose can compromise ankle support
– Toes should not be pressed against the front of the skate or cramped.
– Better skaters tend to like when their toes lightly brush against the toe area because they know their heels will settle back giving them the proper room and allowing the skate to feel like a true extension of their foot. This is all personal preference.
– Skate socks make a big difference in the performance and fit of skates
Bladerunner Advantage Pro XT is an excellent recreational beginner model with pertinent features for complete comfort and control at a great value.

The liner is very comfortable, the structure is supportive and the closure system locks the foot in the skate securely.
The built in composite frame design allows the skate to be closer to the ground for a lower center of gravity which helps beginners with stability, shock absorption and control.
