Unlike plastic, which skids but doesn't brake, the rubber on these 63 mm wheels provides good traction. This stops your child from slipping when they push off, as well as helping them brake effectively. What's more, rubber also wears out less quickly than plastic.
Our Oxelo teams work hard to keep your child safe - however experienced they are. So we've chosen to equip all of our kids' skates with wheels and brakes made out of rubber, not PVC.
