The X-Training line from K2 is for the skater that wants it all: performance, comfort, fit, big wheels and maximum support. The K2 Mach 100 Custom Fit inline skates have all of that and more. They are made with the intuition liner that is moldable to provide you with the best and most comfortable fit. They feature the Mach Hi-Lo Aluminum Frame that has 90mm wheels in the front and 100mm wheels in the back which is designed to keep the weight over the balls of your feet which puts you in the proper skating position so you will skate better. It is fast and stable and the best in the K2 X-Training line. They also feature the ILQ 9 bearings which will help you generate some amazingly fast speed. These K2 skates scream speed so put these on your feet and off you go!

This long time in-line skater (over 23 yrs) needed an upgrade. Replaced some comfortable old K2's with equally comfy, but much faster and erginomic updated pair. I especially love the "smart lacing system". If you love to skate with speed, grace and style these skates fit the bill. Just be aware that your blade length has increased considerably if you are used to 80mm wheels. Also cool : they included a spare axle nut combo to replace the longer one when you remove the heel brake!
I bought these skates on the advice of a person that had personal experience with K2. I have not been disappointed. I am skating primarily as an additional training outlet with biking for alpine racing in the winter. The skates have been great. I haven't discovered any reason to complain about them yet.
I choose 2012 model over 2011 for tighter foot support, which worked for me. The large wheels make for a very smooth ride. Excpected more speed, but have only used them for a short time. I may be going faster because it takes more time to stop? Wheels show more ware than excpected in a short time.
