Default New LandRoller Mojo Skates

Being a LandRoller skate devotee, I'm now ravenous for information about the performance of Landroller's new skate that they are calling Mojo. The first generation versions that I have been skating on for years now are not fast by any means, but I hear that the Mojo is a totally new bird. I'm looking for scraps of info until they post for sale on the LandRoller website. Anything?

Hey Bill! What you've mentioned about the Landrollers 'Mojo' is news to me. In fact, I really don't know much about their other skates.

I have often wondered, just how stable are they? Did you have prior inline skate experience?
What do you like most about them compared to the regular inlines???

Thanks bro....

Default LandRollers? Crazy Stable

I get that from everyone. They look like you are going to fall over in them. No not even. They are more like skating in quads with much more lateral stability than inlines. It's weird, but true. Once you are in them, you don't feel it --- very stable. What I really dig about LandRollers is the smoothness of the ride. The big wheels are crazy smooth on the really bad roads that I have to navigate to get to the beach. To answer your question, I inlined for about 8 years before getting into LandRoller. They are a little on the sluggish side which makes for a better workout, but I'm hearing that the mojos will be much much faster. I'm about comfort, smooth and fast now, so these might be the ticket. I'm just chompin' at the bit.

Question New LandRoller Mojo Skates

Would consider getting the new LandRoller Mojo, skates due out next month?

Besides the olvious of this Recreational skate with a Duce wheel setup with angled axles and wheels 145mm front and 173mm rear.
From what I've read 7 people got hurt when their Terra 9's skates that broke while skating and they stopped production to remanufacture the skates. They even will give owners of the Terra 9's a free repair kit to fix the inherient problem.
Now however, there site shows a pic of the new Mojo with black frames and axles, that sur loks bigger and stronger. Well, Hopefully this model will be much safer.
= = = = = = = = = = =
So R willing to give them a go?

They may be improved, but wheels and bearings were not designed to be run on their sides.

The same non-acceptance of something new could e said like when inlines came online and now inlines are common. So never know!

I am a loyal follower of LandRollers, and had the Apollo Ohno Limited versions... the LandRoller team is awesome, and are always there to help you out and answer questions, apart from being a little snug on the big toe, they were a great pair of recreational/fitness skates, and just perfect for where I skate in The Woodlands, TX... I have ordered my mojo's to replace the Ohno's as they fit much better to size, and are priced very well... I will probably add the ABEC-9's anyway, not sure what the step up from the supplied 7's to 9's will do, but hey, what's the big deal about $30 anyway... I know a lot of people out there don't like LandRollers, but for the right applications they are the best skate out there IMHO... if anyone wants to chat/talk about LandRollers in general I am here... nice meeting you all... looks like a fantastic forum for info...

Ashame, landRollers haven't addressed all it's negatives cause it has protencial to e a fun skate. Granted it's 2nd gen is an improvment but maybe it's 3rd gen will address all its short commings.

Wow, I see there has been little action on the Landroller post... Shame... I really thought there would a bit more interest with the new Mojos...

Question Swiss Bones for LandRoller Mojo's?

just curious if they would work, I am leaning on picking up the ABEC-9's on the LandRoller site to replace the ABEC 7's they come with, but would like to know if Swiss Bones are able to be used... the ABECS on the mojo's are 6000's... anyone here know???
thanks!!!

Unfortunately, their ABEC 9 bearings aren't the same as the standard skate bearings. have to buy their bearings. Ashame, with precision bearings them LandRollers might have decent speed, despite the heavy weight?
