Bladerunner skates are the little brother of the Rollerblade brand. Brought to you by the company who created the first inline skate, Bladerunner has had the engineering input from the oracles of inline skate manufacturing. The Bladerunner range is designed as an entry level, beginners skate at a wallet friendly price. Inline skates are a precision piece of sports equipment with moving parts; it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you scrimp on the pennies you will usually get a substandard performance (materials, fit, engineering, ergonomics, balance etc). Not with Bladerunner. As a protégé to Rollerblade they have access to resources that other budget brands just can't achieve. Large production lines, lower set-up costs and engineering knowledge help Bladerunner to produce a product which is higher in quality but lower in price than competing budget brands.
