Oxelo Diabolo Skates where designed for people who find it difficult to control their speed and braking and are the ideal product for novice skaters. They feature a foot-activated braking system that's simple to use and quite revolutionary for the skating world. The braking system can be turned "On" and "Off" and is activated progressively when the right leg is pushed forwards. Each Oxelo Diabolo skate also boasts an elaborately worked foot lining and comfy support mechanisms that provide rigidity and stability, making for a safe skating experience for everyone. The Diabolo is available in different colors and dynamic designs to suit skaters' individual preferences. Check out the hilarious video below! Oxelo Diabolo.
