Matt Egan replied to Mara's discussion Powerslide R4 versus the new 2014 Powerslide Marathon
"The R2 is fairly similar to the R4, especially in the foot bed, and while it's a decent footbed for most people it does have a pretty pronounced arch and the footbed is not moldable.  So, if the footbed doesn't fit your feet well you…"

"My guess is probably not, but having not had experience with this boot, I can't be certain. If you have a 3PF frame from Bont that is 195mm mount, you should only need the R4 boot."

"Okay, marathon is out.  Think I'm going with R4. Will be slightly higher than Jet but not so much that I feel restricted. Thanks again!  Now i just have to find a pair in my size... 40  You think there's any difference…"

I travelled from Barcelona to Lisbon to meet my two very good friend Patrick Francisco and Ben Brillante coming straight from Paris for the weekend. We had one goal: making a new skating video. We didn't know much about Lisbon so we discovered it as…

theDonnybrook replied to Mara's discussion Powerslide R4 versus the new 2014 Powerslide Marathon
"The R4 is more of a speed skate, with a harder shell under the upper. It would more actively compare to the Bont Semi-Race. The Powerslide Marathon is more of a rec/fitness boot, geared toward people interested in fitness skating and possibly…"

Powerslide R4 versus the new 2014 Powerslide Marathon

My quest for a comfortable skate that doesn't limit my range of motion continues.  I'm starting a new thread to see if anyone has an opinion on the Marathon versus R4,  in regard to getting on edges and not having cuff dig in (R4 or Marathon).  I read a review of the R4 from Nett Racing that made them sound great but I worried a little when he said he didn't lace up the top.  I'm guessing that was either because he wanted more range of motion or it dug in since it's a bit higher up. However, he…See More

theDonnybrook replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"You are right, rec boots have that comfy feel of driving an old Buick. The cuff on a speed skate should be snug, but not so high that it would dig in to your ankle. This has me worried that you are in a boot that is too big. What is the length…"

Mara replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"Thank you for this thoughtful reply.  I'm really confused by how a tight cuff will feel better.  That was my first iteration of molding and it dig in so bad I could hardly skate. Perhaps it's the male versus female foot?  I…"

theDonnybrook replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"Problem sounds like you have a foot shape that doesn't work well with your boot, or, alternatively, your boot is too big. My first pair of Bonts were a size and a half too big because I didn't understand sizing speed skates much less…"

Mara replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"I'm 5'6 and have slender feet.  I've tried molding these skates about 6 times, trying various techniques to get them comfortable.  I've pulled them in snuggly and it kills me and I've cinched them down more loosely…"

theDonnybrook replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"Any speed skate can be fast. Where are you getting discomfort in your Jets? You may have a minor problem with the way your boots are set up or molded. If new skates, possibly customs, are not an option, then lets start by understanding your current…"

theDonnybrook replied to Eric Smyth's discussion Noob cramp
"Stretching should help with cramps, at least to get rid of them right away. Otherwise, hydrate and get electrolytes. Generally, potassium helps. You always hear Bananas help, it is because of the potassium. Check your diet and your hydration, that…"

Noob cramp

I went for a longer skate Friday and had my first calf cramp in both legs after i took my skates off. i had not gotten a chance to stretch yet. Does stretching immediately after help this? I must have been dehydrated. I hope i never get one while skating. whats the best thing to do if it happens during a skate? I have played a lot of hockey and never had cramped up. aging sucksSee More

Mara replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"Yes, that's probably right.  I'm at the point now where even going 15 miles is quite uncomfortable.  From what I understand, they don't make a woman's and that's probably a lot of the issue.  Even for a woman…"

Chris Miner replied to Mara's discussion ISO Comfortable skates for "long - ultra distance" - suggestions?
"After two seasons, I'd guess you've given the boots and your feet/ankles enought time to adjust. Probably it isn't going to get any better. I'm not convinced the distance you're covering is an issue though. Could be Bonts…"
