About this product
About this product
The FR Skates FR1 should be THE industry-standard skate. Whilst that’s only our opinion, analysing customer feedback and the skate’s own incredible sales record, it would make sense for almost every skater to have the FR1 in their arsenal at some point during their skating timeline. It is genuinely awesome.
The hard shell boot has undergone rigorous testing from elite athletes to ensure it offers both excellent performance and shock absorption. This means the skate is responsive whilst reducing road vibrations for a smoother ride. The boot's wide lace opening makes the fitment easy and accessible. The multi-positional cuff tailers ankle support to individual needs. The liner is (hands-down) the most comfortable we’ve seen. Cushioned foam hugs the foot in all the right places, furthering the skate's fatigue management.
The FR1 baseplate is a big part of what makes the skate shine, although it's hidden when in use.
The baseplate allows users to adjust the frame position in all directions to personalise the ride, strides, and push-offs. But, the top characteristic is its contribution to energy transfer. The plate works with the frame and boot to provide exceptional responsiveness without impacting the comfort of the skate.
The 4D frame is lightweight, robust and ergonomically designed for performance. Combined with Street Invader II Wheels and MW9 bearings, the setup is seriously elite.
What's the difference between the FR1 Deluxe, FR1, FR2, FR3 and FRX models?
The FR1 Deluxe is the same as the FR1 with the addition of premium Intuition liners. The liners increase the responsiveness of the skates and improve fitment (FR adjusted the shell sizing for this model, too).
Best suited for those looking for a premium model without the price tag of the FR1 Deluxe. The FR1 comes with 4D frames, FR's flagship frame, renowned in the freeskating world. Metal fastening buckles, metal 7-point base plates, multi-positional cuff bolts and a 45 ratchet strap.
The FR2 uses different buckles, wheels and frames to the FR1; otherwise, it is the same. The top clip is plastic, as opposed to metal. The frame is lower specification than the FR1 but higher specification than the FR3 and the FRX. The frame includes FR's rockerable axles (meaning the skate can work both flat and rockered without changing the wheels). This feature makes the FR2 the best value for money in the range, in our opinion.
The FR3 has lower specification parts compared to the FR1 and FR2. The wheels, bearings, frame and 45 ratchet are replaced with stock parts, but are still suitable for regular use. Simple screws replace the multi-positional cuff hardware. The frame is still rockerable, however.
The FRX is the entry-level model. Simple frame attachment rivets replace the 7-point metal base plates, which is the biggest reduction in cost and performance. A velcro 45 strap replaces the ratchet strap. The frame, wheels and bearings are the same as the FR3.
