Whatever your preferred terrain, you can now find an in-line
skate that's perfect for it. The sport started as a way for

of urban skaters, bladers who want to take to the hills and
those who fancy themselves terra firma Dan Jansens, have scads
of styles to choose from. The new models below can put a snap in
your stroke or let you take the road less skated.
