Comments: I bought a new pair of these locally. The front wheel on each skate developed severe cracks in the first 15 minutes of use -I weigh 165 pounds. I'd rather these skates come with no wheels.

Comments: I started with an entry level pair of Bauers ("RX500") and beat them to hell, enjoying them the whole time. Just upgraded to the XR3 and the difference is like Night and Day. I turn tighter, stop better, and accelerate faster. I will not review wheels and bearings in a skate review, just know you're going to replace them. The 1 piece from is a must if you're serious, and the price is right. My feet and game are very happy
Comments: Nice pair of skates still breaking them in now. Recommend baking them they have an IW instructional video on YouTube. The control that you have with these Bauer skates is far superior to any skate that I have had in the past (Rollerblade and Mission). Recommend upgrading wheels and bearings. The "one piece" detonator frame makes the skate solid! So far the skating on these babies is really smooth and the XR3's make you skate with more control. I especially like the thought they put into making this skate where the side scrape guards extend far enough back so that they will not wear a hole in the skate sides so quickly, especially if you skate with a full-tilt like I do at times! These skates are worth the $179, which is the lowest you can go to get that nice 1 piece wheel frame!
Comments: Got these skates a week ago and used them in a couple of games since. They are a comfortable and supportive skate. Nothing to flashy or crazy about them, they seem pretty basic. The only complaint i have is the wheels and bearings. I switched them out with some labedas and swiss bearings and it made the skate much better. Can't go wrong for the price. All around good skate
