Roller Derby Skates and Wheels



  1. Best wheel over rough terrain. It goes over stop rocks, debris, water better than any wheel. It doesn’t ‘steamroll’ over everything like a normal wheel, it ‘slithers’ around it and kicks rocks left and right. 
  1. Lightning fast. Less friction touching the ground, less rolling resistance. Just won 2015 Miami Ultraskate and posted fastest lap time. Won multiple international competitions in the last year. Scientifically tested to have a 15% rebound advantage over top wheels in the market.  
  1. Better slide control. The Custom California Wheel actually spins as it slides, catching-releasing-catching-releasing. It acts like a car’s antilock brakes. The 3 sine wave lips of the Custom California Wheel give it an advantage over the traditional 1 lip on a traditional wheel. 
  1. Lasts longer. Scientifically tested to last 20% longer when cruising. Custom California Wheel has multiple center points compared to only one center point on a traditional wheel. Also, traditional circular wheels prone to flatspotting because they wear unevenly with only one center point.. 


Roller derby is fun. It is speed. Roller derby is body checking.  It is five-on-five full contact with some of the best female athletes on quad skates today.  It has also given people the tools to train better and live healthier and get exercise.

A roller derby bout is played in two, 30-minute periods. These periods are divided into a series of “jams,” which last a maximum of two minutes.

A roller derby tournament seems like a brutal research environment: women  crash around a rink in short skirts and skates, slamming their shoulders into members of the opposing team so that their own team’s “jammer” can lap them and score.


The USARS Roller Derby Sport Committee was formed in 2011, and was given the responsibility to develop and grow the recently created USARS Roller Derby program. The primary goal of the Committee, which comprises members of the Roller Derby community, is to create an efficient model for the sport to grow in all directions under a very open and inclusive atmosphere. Their plan defines initiatives that remove any restrictions based on gender (female, male, co-ed), style (flat, banked) or level (junior, novice, advanced), and that contain a clear recognition that every individual who is involved with Roller Derby is important (players, coaches, officials, announcers, fans, etc.).

Best of all, the liner is washable so you don’t have to worry about any odors from not being able to clean the skates properly.
