Smile Seba skates

I've been skating since June last year, using my only skates so far, Seba FR2 80s. They've been great, but I'm thinking of upgrading to the FR1s as I'd like a slightly lighter skate - though I'm wondering if it might be just my wheels (Street Kings) which are heavy rather than the skates themselves. Can anyone tell me if the difference between the FR2s and the FR1s is worth the investment, or have any alternatives they can recommend for an Intermediate like me? Thanks!

I've never had FR1's or 2's, but it appears as though you've gone through them in a year?

If you really love skating and and don't want to replace your skate every year, then I'd recommend the Seba High Light. Worth every penny.

That's what I have. They're light! I've been using the same pair for the past 5 years and they're the only skate that's ever held up for me.

Good luck. Tell us what happens.

Wheel weights won't differ much across the board of 80mms. Obviously a smaller wheel will be somewhat lighter, but not as much as getting a lighter boot and frame combo.
