Rigid structure and triple fastening system (2 micrometric buckles & laces).
Ease of handling
243 mm extruded aluminium frame with 80 mm wheels or 231 mm with 76 mm wheels
Reinforcements: removable protections on the side of the foot.
What support do these freeride skates have?
The cuff (the plastic part on top, also known as a "spoiler") has been developed with one aim in mind: offering optimal foot support. To do so, it is moulded with a mixed composite with 15% fibreglass.
And for (even more) support, the skates have 2 micrometric buckles and laces.
What is the impact protection?
Built-in shell and plastic pads on the forefoot protect the skate while sliding or in the event of a fall.
Are these skates versatile, or can they only be used for freeride?
The go-to versatile skates with excellent glide quality (ABEC7 and 80mm or 76mm wheels for sizes 3 to 5) and great handling (short, durable plate that withstands jumps and slides).
Two different wheel sizes based on shoe size: 3 (EU 36) to 5 (EU 38): 76 mm / 5.5 (EU 39) to 11 (EU 46): 80 mm to guarantee that each one is very manoeuvrable.
The plate can be slightly moved to the left or the right to suit your needs.
What braking system do these freeride skates use?
The full brake, pad & brake mount can be fitted to the left or right foot (supplied unmounted).
The brake mount is available from your Decathlon store Workshop.
The brake pad is available in the roller skating department (depending on the store) or online.
What is extruded aluminium?
Extrusion is a thermomechanical manufacturing process in which a compressed material is forced through a die (tool that shapes it into a fixed profile).
Since it has not been folded or cut, the extruded part (for this skate, the plate) is therefore more solid and shaped more precisely.
How can you maintain/repair your skates?
You can replace parts or repair your skates using the after-sales parts available in store, online and at your local Decathlon store's workshop.
How can you make your skates last longer?
To extend the lifespan of your skates after skating through water, dust or sand, take the wheels off, dry them and degrease the bearings with a dry cloth.

How can you make the wheels last longer?
It's normal to switch your wheels around because they don't wear out evenly. The reason? We often skate with our feet sloping slightly inwards when we push off and turn.
If you want to stop them wearing out, switch your wheels around (in pairs).
What is the maximum weight for these Oxelo MF 500 skates?
These adult skates meet the EN 13843 class A standard (adult inline skate standard). This standard applies to "Roller sports equipment - inline skates" designed for a person weighing between 20kg and 100kg. This European standard defines the safety requirements and the specifications for the test methods, markings, and information provided by the manufacturer, with the aim of reducing the risk of injury.
How much do the Oxelo MF 500 skates weigh?
3.15 kg per pair in size 8½.
How are our products tested?
All of our skates have been lab tested. These tests validate their compliance with the European standards for skates, as well as their resistance to wear.
As well as lab tests we do field tests - some measured and others based on the testers' opinions - to really put the product through its paces. The result is a tested, proven product.
Im a seasoned inline skater , stopped skating for more than 20 years . I used to have more expensive and branded skates. Decided to skate again and i bought MF500 . This skate is on par with other brands that are 3-4 times more expensive . Its comfortable , the bearings are awesome and glides smoothly, material is tough and well maden . Wish it could be a bit lighter .
Quality is comparable to "big name" skating brands
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
When it comes to the price for what you buy, Decathlon takes the prize for this one. Although, they slightly raised the price, I still went with the MF500's.
After some research, I found that this model is directly comparable to models that cost double, if not even triple, the money with other brands.
One drawback for me was the insole which is pretty basic and replaced it with an aftermarket gel sports insole (about £8-£10) and later replaced the bearings as well, but this is what makes them great: you begin with a great "base" skate, see if inline skating is for you and upgrade it as you go to fit your needs. They feel a little heavy at the start but my feet got used to the weight.
Overall, this is a great first skate and would recommend everyone to start with this if they are unsure if they want to start skating as they get some good quality that will have a positive feedback on their decision whether to take up the sport or not.
A very capable, great value skate!

As a skater with several sets of branded skates already, I wanted to see what a £70 set of skates were like. Skates can be expensive and this can put people off from the start, I wanted to see if there was a quality skate that could give that amazing skating feeling at a price that wasn't going to break the bank; this is what Oxelo have done with the MF500. The skate feels solid and stable, the liner is comfortable, the cuff provides adequate support and, with two buckles and laces, my foot feels firmly planted in the boot. I did feel some pressure points on the inside of both ankles after the first few sessions, but these subsided quickly with continued use. Though not heavy, these do feel marginally heavier than my other skates, but this is not something a new skater would be aware of. The 86a wheels roll very well, allowing for speed, traction, and stopping power. There is a brake in the box but this is not something I use. The Abec 7 bearings are fine; they roll smoothly enough and can be changed when needed. The frames can be adjusted both front/back and laterally to suit a variety of skating styles. The only major issue I have with these is the two-piece wheels axle bolts. Sadly, the frames are not threaded, meaning the wheel axles come in two parts and require two hex keys for removal. These are provided but this makes wheel rotation a real chore. These hex keys are also used to adjust the frames; however, the keys provided are very short and it would be much easier to use a longer key. The only other issue I've encountered is a rubbing at the base of my left calf; though it's worth noting that I've only been using these for a month and this is something that's likely to subside once they bed in more. Who are these skates for? Personally, I'd say beginners, or intermediates on a budget. It's important to provide beginners with the best skating experience in order that they continue to enjoy the unique feel that skating can provide; these skates definitely do that. For the intermediate skater on a budget looking to push their skills and don a set of quality skates, I'd say: add these to the shortlist. I've had immense fun bombing around on these, and they've given skates three times the price a good run for their money. It may not be published here, but videos tell a story better than words on a page. For anyone interested in seeing these great skates in action you can check out Rich Hayter Skater on YT. To Oxelo, I would say: please change the two-piece wheel axle bolts. Enjoy!
