Default Mota Inline Speed Skates

Wondering if anyone has any experience with them. They are pretty cheap for a full carbon set-up at $399. I want to move to 3x125, but can't afford a new Bont Z boot/frame/wheels. They make mostly quad skates with a focus on derby, so it seems odd they are offering a line of inline speed boots.

Julie and Doug Glass have been in the skate industry for decades and highly skilled inline skaters. I believe they did inline products before they got into the quad products.

I use the Mota 3x125 frame on my second boots (Simmons) set of skates and for the money you can't go wrong, actually the mota frame is as good $300 frames IMO.


The stock Mota boots look good, a friend has a pair. I'm not sure how they feel, he's strictly an outdoor skater.

Mota is Atom spelled backwards. Got it.

I have Mota's and absolutely love them, highly recommend them. Very comfortable, way more so than my old Bont Boss black widows. I say go for them.Nettracing carries them, great deal too.

I should add, their sizing runs quite small. I usually wear a size 9.5 street shoe, my Mota's are a perfect fit at size 11.

I got a response back. Mota used to be the manufacturing partner for Luigino, and the companies parted ways in 2015. It seems Luigino's web presence has disappeared along with the Atom wheels website. Mota doesn't appear to be either Atom or Luigino. I am interested to hear more about their products. I have heard good things about their 125mm wheels. However, I may opt for the familiar as the new Bont Vaypor boot is really sharp. I think I can probably wait another season or two before moving up to 125s.

Doug Glass has started several companies over the years (Verducci, Luigino, Mota and probably a couple I have forgotten). The Glasses were in partnership with a couple other people for Luigino (Nistevo I believe was the real company name). I think the other people were Gypsy Lucas and Scott Bauer but I don't know for sure. I believe they are simply knows as Atom Skates now.
