Cardiff is a three wheel skates that can be worn on top of your shoes. Because of its ergonomic design it provides great deal of balance and comfort. These skates are not only unique in design, but also in the approach to skating itself.
The whole tightening depends on the micrometric buckle on the instep and on the automatic adjustment of the skates’ length. Take the time to wedge your shoe into the structure so that the heel isn’t let loose. Then you can skate in confidence. In our humble opinion, a supplementary micrometric buckle starting from the heel and supporting the upper part of the instep would have been a real plus. It would have reduced the risks of heel slipping.
You can also use an instep strap, which is frequently done in quad and aggressive skating.

The ASA is one of the unique feature of this skate. It has an aluminum rails (the orange parts) and in the rear of the skate it has brake with the S1 logo.

One of the distinctive features of the S1/S2 remains their braking system. Cardiff Skate Co. designed an ingenious system: an 80 mm wheel is mounted in the rear of the skate, free spinning. When you lift your toes and keep your heel on the ground, the wheel rubs against a metal piece. According to the stress you exert on it, you can either get a progressive and gentle braking or a strong and powerful one.
