The Roll-Line Variant M (Metal Trucks) is for the beginning Competitive Skater in their Learning Stages and provides the same level of articulated performance as all of the upper level Roll-Line frames, but at a very affordable price. TheVariant M from SkatesUS.com provides great performance due to its innovative design and lightweight structure. TheRoll-Line Variant M is forged from a solid bar of Aircraft Aluminum Alloy and completely CNC machined. The Roll-LineMechanism Action adjustment system provides accurate Action adjustments using the 04 series, 13mm base King Pins with Adjustment Nuts and Locking Screws. The Variant M features Metal Trucks with the strongest Steel Axles available with adjustable Pivot Pins. The design and materials of Roll-Line Skates from SkatesUS.com, provides athletes the proper support of the skating shoe and give the most sensitive control, the greatest and absolute fastest response available from any skate, providing a sense of great stability and action.
Roll-Line Natural Rubber Suspensions provide quick and fluid energy transmission from the foot through the skate to the skating surface.
The Roll-Line Natural Rubber Suspensions are available in three hardnesses to provide the perfect skate alignment. The Upper (Large) Suspension provides the Stability of the Edge, while the Lower (Small) Suspension creates the Deep Edges, Great Turns and Spins. The Suspensions can be mixed and matched to provide a VERY Custom skate Action. Usually the Upper (Large) Suspension is harder, because it is carrying the weight of the Skater, and provides the edge stability, while the Lower (Small) Suspension is one or (more infrequently) two levels more flexible, providing great edges and changes.
Green = Flexible
Natural (Brown) = Medium
Yellow = Hard
The Variant M is provided with the Standard (Gray) Toe Stops (Metric).
Some of the newer versions of the Variant, may have a machined Slot in the base of the frame. This is an “In Production” upgrade that is being phased into producltion, and may not be on all and the smaller sizes. The purpose is to reduce weight, without reducing strength.
