Skateez are designed to provide support for beginning skaters in the same way training wheels work on a bicycle. The arms are rigid enough to hold the skate vertical but also flexible enough to allow the skater to "edge" the blade to propel forward. Traditional bobskates or other training devices only let the beginning skater "walk" on the ice. Skateez provide a platform for learning the basics of real skating motion. The design is intended to fit a multitude of skate styles and may require some minor adjustments when installing.
