Tour Thor EX1 Roller Hockey Skates Sr
Comments: As my first pair of inline hockey skates, I am very impressed with both the quality and price. The skate seems to be able to hold someone of my weight (+/- 205 lbs) with relative ease. The Labeda Addy wheels grip well on sport court and the chassis is almost weightless. My online 'beef' with these Tours is the high ankle support. As @Josh mentioned, one may have to skip an eyelet(s) to get that forward flex. For me, I skip the last two eyelets due to the way I skate. All in all, this is an excellent choice especially given the drastic sale price.
Comments: Great pair of skates, got them right when they came out when I had the Tour Code Tabu skates and I have not been disappointed one bit. I play defense and take lots of pucks and sticks to the skates and the chassis has maintained its structural integrity and the boot still feels like it was more than 2 years ago. I would recommend these to any advanced level skater looking to increase their level of play.

Comments: Best skates I've ever rode, can't believe they're so cheaply priced. Tour is great. Bearings are great- I put new harder wheels on because I ride outside, but skates were ready to go other than that.

Comments: Just switched to these after about 12 years on the original 982 Fishbones. Tour changed the sizes and these even in the same size are bigger. It takes a bit to get used to skating on all 80mm wheels compared to a high-lo set up. Skates are great, super comfortable, fit great when baked, wheels are awesome for a guy my size, 6'3 250. Only thing I don't like is the tongue, I have to skip the last eyelets out so I can get some forward flex without having lacebite. Otherwise, for the current cost they are totally worth it
Comments: Best skates i have used. The skate is very comfortable. The wheels are the best wheels out there and the bearing that come with the skates are nice too. On my other pair of Tour skates i had problems with the lace bite but on these skates that problem was fixed.

Comments: I have has these skates for 6 months now. I thought these skates where going to be better but they are still pretty good. They are deffenetly worth the price. These skates give you a very smooth ride and they are very fast. The wheels suck really bad though, I can't stop in them. Every time I try I just end up sliding across the floor. I have had them for 6 months now and I use them eight hours a week, every week. The outsole is allready falling off the boot. I would give this skate 4 out of 5 stars.

Comments: I have been on tours for over 12 years, since my first pair of TR2000s. These are very nice skates, but not for the price (original retail) I've had these skates for ~1.5 years now playing 2 times per week and they have held up fairly well. (I am just now starting to pull lace eyelets out of their holes) They are still rather stiff and have not broken down as quickly as some of the other tours I have had. The stock mini bearings are garbage, however, so I took the 608-sized swiss bearings they include with the package and traded the stock mini-hub Labedas addictions for 608 hub addictions and was more than happy. The Eviction frame is also top notch. I am 6'0" 205 and have taken some pretty solid hits to the chassis and they are still straight as an arrow. With the new sale price, I could definitely recommend these to a friend, but when they were ~$600, I could have gotten more for my money elsewhere
Comments: Had tour skates all my life cant say i plan on changing. awesome skate. light weight, top line wheels and bearings, and rather comfortable.

Comments: cannot recommend these skates to anyone. The tongue is terrible, and they are a little heavy for a top of the line skate. I have had these for only 6 months and the stiffness is completely gone. I have no support left in the skates and I am already looking for replacements. Very disappointed with this product.
Comments: Really dissapointed with these. Opened the box to find layers of the surlyn and foam peeling. Have had many pairs of Tour skates over the years and it's clear that the recent lines are not as well made as previous years. Bottom line is they are not to the standard I expected for the money, not super stiff like a top skate should be. I am serious player and wanted serious skates with pro level support, these simply won't do. Also completley pointless having the carbon outsole as the inner sole is think nylon or mylar which is heavy and negates any benefit of the carbon. I'll be looking for an alernative skate and doubt I'll ever lace these up.
Comments: CRAZY GOOD SKATES!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!!

Comments: These skates are like biting into a fresh Kemper's deli submarine. Can you taste those PICKLES?!?!?
Comments:VERY COMFORTABLE AND RESPONSIVE BOOT HAD FOR 4 MONTHS BOOT STILL FEELS NEW. LIGHT AND FAST.
Comments:Very happy with these skates. I have used Tour for years and I dont plan on changing any time soon. The skates are one better than the Cobalt Qs i bought, except the Thor EX1 are a bit lighter and give more comfort and grip in tight turns. They need a bit of breaking in, but so do all new skates! The ony down side is the price tag as i had to also import them aswell, but these are definately a top notch skate and if you can afford them, you wont be dissapointed
