Roces Big Cats Skates - anyone tried these?

These kind of look interesting.


Anyone tried them? Thoughts about how they would work?

No experience.... the wheels appear to be sold rather that pneumatic, which might make go a choppy ride. Also, the diameter of the Big Cat's larger wheels are 1.7 inches smaller than the Coyote Talus Wheels.

The two mini center wheels look like they have a high potential for snagging or bogging down.

Which may have led to the 2 wheel variant...

They were released by Roces around the same time as the Coyotes so I can only assume they meant to compete ... they were less popular than Coyotes :lol:

If they're cheap, grab 'em - you can always use the boots for some doom wheels!

Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...
