Flaneurz series
By Lea 9/2/2020 6:00 PM

In order to adapt as well as possible to the various skating practices, Flaneurz offers three series of rolling parts to equip the shoes you want: the First, Iconic and Premium series. 

One component is common to all three Flaneurz series: the clip-on and clip-off system.

/HOW TO CHOOSE ?

All three series cover the needs of both beginners and seasoned skaters. Your choice will be made according to their characteristics:

/Suitable for novices, the First rolling part offers you increased stability
/Manageable, the Iconic rolling part is the lightest one
/The Premiums are precise and robust, and are ideal for advanced skaters and those who would like to develop a more athletic practice


For all our series, the components have been selected with the same care. Our products are not gadgets, they are made to last and we guarantee you a long-lasting use. They are made and hand-assembled at the Sk8lab of La Flânerie (Pantin, France).

/FIRST SERIES

The First series is equipped with the Rio Roller plate. This British brand has been a reference in the skating world since the 1990s. Made of injected plastic, it has an entrax (distance between the front and rear wheels) and trucks which are wider than those of the Iconic and Premium series. Therefore, it offers better stability. This makes skating easier and allows you to progress with confidence. You can choose to add a rear brake to your skates for easier braking.

The wheels that equip this Flaneurz series are adapted to all types of ground. Their characteristics are ideal for beginners: with a hardness of 80A, they are malleable enough to grip uneven ground while keeping a hardness that enables quick progress.

All the components of the plate and wheels are manufactured in China in factories supplying major brands of skates.

/Available in Black

/ICONIC SERIES

This series is equipped with a late made in the United States, developed by Sure Grip, which has been part of the skating world since 1937. It is made of injected Dupont® Nylon (composite plastic materials), which makes it light and comfortable. The toe stops are available in several colors to match all your personalizations.

The Iconic rolling parts are equipped with wheels with a hardness of 78A. This characteristic enables an excellent absorption of the asperities of the ground and thus an optimal ease in your movements. They are manufactured by Kryptonics, a leading American brand in the skating and skateboarding world since 1965.

/Available in Black or White 

STOCK ALERT / As you may know, the skating community has been booming these past few months. And with that high demand is resulting several shortages of roller skate parts from the suppliers and manufacturers.This is why we are temporarily replacing the Krypto Impulse wheels with Helium wheels from the premium series.

/PREMIUM SERIES

For this series, Flaneurz focuses on local distribution channels by choosing the Blaster and Variant plate of the Italian brand Roll Line. These precise and sturdy plates are made of aluminium machined in the mass. The Variant plate, in its original aluminum color, is originally designed for figure skating, while the Blaster, in its black color, is known in roller derby.

The Roll Line Helium wheels which equip this series are chosen for their reactivity thanks to their injected plastic rims. Their color, (white or black) is thought and created only to be in harmony with the Flaneurz Premium series. With a hardness of 82A, these wheels are mixed (interior/exterior) and therefore more adapted to smooth surfaces.

/Available in Black or White 

/TECHNICAL DETAILS

/Rolling parts sizes
The choice of sizes for the rolling part, to fit a wide shoe sizes range, required a lot of research.To each size corresponds a plate size. Thus, we divided the sizes (from 35 to 46 ⅔) into five sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL). The information below concerns the entrax, in millimeters.

Rolling part size Size (EUR) FIRST  ICONIC & PREMIUM
XS 35 - 37 140 mm 140 mm
S 37 ⅓ - 39 157 mm 140 mm
M 39 ⅓ - 41.5 168 mm 150 mm
L 42 - 43.5 180 mm 160 mm
XL 44 - 46 ⅔ 195 mm 170 - 180 mm

The size reference will be useful to us when you make a Change Your Shoes. Your Flaneurz serial number enables us to know your size of rolling part and to reproduce identically the placement of the female mechanical parts.

/Accessories compatibility
Note that some accessories are not compatible with all Flaneurz series. The space that accommodates the front stops on the First and Iconic rolling parts is equipped with a US thread, whereas it is an ISO thread on the Premium rolling part.

Be sure to order the right accessory for your rolling part.
