The Micro Discovery is a performance skate, offering great maneuverability and support on a durable metal chassis. This is a best selling skate.

The Micro Infinite - £115

The Infinite offers a lightweight boot, improved maneuverability and an ankle buckle that offers millimetric adjustment. For those active at dusk or night, the reflective heel offers additional visibility.

The Micro Duality - £125

The Duality features a metal chassis (this is the undercarriage of the boot, where the wheels attach).
