rn rn rn rn rn rnStandard Brakes rnRollerblade® offers three types of standard brakes with the same attachment and rnremoval instructions: rnBrake with pin rnBrake without pin rnBrake 4D rn rnAttaching a Standard Brake rnRemove the rear wheel fastening screw. rnPlace the brake in the correct position indicated by the arrow in the technical manual or as seen in the brake maintenance video found on rollerblade.com. rnPlace washers in the correct position. rnInsert and tighten the long screw from the outer side of the frame. rnThen insert and tighten the short screw from the inner side of the frame. rnA #4 Allen wrench is included in the box. rnIf the brake has a pin, insert the pin into the appropriate hole on the frame, gently tapping it in with a hammer. The pin is properly secured when flush with the frame profile. rn rnRemoving a Standard Brake rnIf brake has a pin, remove the pin using a hammer and screwdriver. rnRemove the short screw first, and then remove the long screw that attaches the rnbrake to the frame. rnSlide the brake off the skate. rnRe-tighten the rear wheel screw that comes with the frame. rn rnNote on the 4D Instructions rnInsert brake 4D at the indicated positions. Make sure to be careful of the brake 4D rnteeth when you remove the brake from or insert into the wheelbase. The 4D brake can be attached to either the right or the left skate. rn rnADJ Brake rnThe ADJ brake can be adjusted to 4 different positions. As the stopper gradually wears out, lower the brake from position 4 (the starting position) to position 3. As wear continues, repeat the above operation bringing the brake to position 2 and, if necessary, to position 1. Once the wear limit is reached, replace the brake pad and lodge the brake back to the starting position 4 by activating the release button. The ADJ brake, once it has been adjusted on the correct position depending on the brake pad wear, should be used as a standard brake. rn rnRollerblade® ® recommends the brake height of 10mm (the distance between the stopper and the ground). rn rnAttaching the ADJ Brake rnNote: this operation is only possible on skates designed to use the ADJ brake rn rnRemove the back wheel screw. rnFasten the spring to the brake hook. rnPull on the brake until you can rotate it and position it. rnInsert the washer in the correct position. rnInsert the long axle from the outer part of the frame. rnTighten the short screw from the inside of the frame. The screws and the Allen key are included on the tool kit in the skate box. rn rn rnRemoving the ADJ Brake rnRemove the back wheel screw. rnPull the brake from the skate. rnRotate the brake until the spring (which keeps it tied to the mechanism) releases. rnTighten the back wheel screw (screw to be found in the frame kit).
Skate smart: know your skill level and skating conditions. You are always safer wearing a helmet and full protective gear.
