Classic starter skate. These are the narrower skate of all options. The slim boot is completely vegan and has a soft open toebox. The ankle strap keeps you in place while the inner padding makes the R3 a comfortable skate to start with.
Our newest addition to the starter packs is an agile setup (due to its 20° plate) and immediately one of our favourite options. The Ruby has a medium to wider width shoe with a curved toe, protected by a harder toe box. This gives you an ergonomic fit, a little bit of wiggling room at the toes and extra protection in that area. The Ruby has a round standard toe stop (best of the skate options in the starter packs) and allround indoor medium soft/hard wheels.
The Vxi skates are an agile setup due to the Apollo plate at 20°. The shoes have a rounded collar for comfort and a velcro strap to secure you in place. As the toe box is soft and open, it can be laced wider or smaller as you please. This boot has the most padding on the inside, compared to the other options. This results in a comfortable fit, but we advise you to get them snug as padding becomes thinner over time (in all skates).
TSG Helmet skate/bmx → This is our most popular, best fitting and most size-accurate helmet
This classic helmet from TSG is also very popular. Together with the other helmet options, this has been a standard reliable option to protect your head.
Triple 8 - Brainsaver Dual Certified with EPS Liner
The Brainsaver is your standard roller skate helmet, available in different colors. It is safe, fits well and has a sweat wicking liner.
S-One Lifer Helmet
This Lifer helmet is the safest helmet option. It is certified for single and multi impact, exactly what you need for roller derby. The Lifer fits deep on the head and is not fully round, but a bit slimmer on the sides. It comes in a very wide range of sizes and color options.
Knee and elbow pads
187 Combo set
This set holds knee and elbow protection at a basic safety level, yet remarkably better than the TSG basic protection set. Combo set knee pads have a closed elastic sleeve back and are easy to put on. The knee pads are the smaller brother of the 187 Fly knee pads. If you prefer a stronger neoprene sleeve, check out the 187 Fly Starter Pack. The elbow pads in this set are just what you need and nice to wear as they are not bulky and fit ergonomically.
187 Wrist Guard and Derby Wrist Guard
Both are used by beginner and elite skaters because these are safe, practical in use and long lasting. While the regular 187 wrist guard uses a 3 point closing with velcro straps, the derby wrist guard is a pull on model with extra velcro to secure its position. Both are non-restricting the range of motion you want for roller derby
TSG wrist guard All Terrain
This is the only TSG wrist guard that is a pull-on type. The neoprene sleeve holds the protection in place like a second skin. The all terrain wrist guard comes up longer on the lower arm, making you feel extra safe
TSG wrist guard Force and Pro
TSG's classic and timeless wrist guards both have a 3 point closing system with velcro straps. These have been go-to options for skaters over a decade because they are strong, safe and last during our aggressive sport. The difference between Force and Pro: the Force uses a mesh for a more breathable protection.
Triple 8 Wristsaver
Classic 3 point closing system with velcro straps. The material around the wrist is completely in mesh, which is super breathable, but not as strong as other options.
SISU Aero Mouthguard
This mouthguard is the most practical option and the most used amongst roller derby skaters. Instead of being bulcky, which would just make you gag and drool, this SISU mouthguard uses efficient technology to keep you safe. Why is it so loved? Because it is of a practical size, you can form fit it for YOU and your teeth and you can talk, breathe and drink with it. Whilst this might not be your concern right now, you'll be happy about this choice in the long run. Don't just take our word for it, ask your team mates.
SISU Max Mouthguard
Whilst the SISU Aero is the standard mouthguard, this one gives you more protection. The SISU Max uses the same technology as the Aero, but has thicker material.

Have you considered this?
- Protecting your skates with a set of toe caps or toe guards. When falling and skating, the toe area of your skates will get damaged. Put a second layer of protection around them to keep them new.
- Changing your wheels or bearings requires a tool. You might need it when you put your outdoor wheels on, for example.
- Organizing your skate bag? Before you know it, it becomes a mess. Putting your extra wheels and other small items in a wheel bag will make your life easier when digging into your skate bag to find something.
- Just throwing your skates over your shoulder. You can do it without wearing your laces out, by just hooking your skates into this skate leash. Easiest way to carry your skates.
-- Consider sizing! No elbow pad is the same, nor are skates, wrist guards, helmets or knee pads. You can click on the products above to find more information about that item, or you can check our sizing information page.
-- Skate size advise
** We find the Chaya Ruby skates to size somewhat small. You might want to go up one size. If you are a 38, please consider getting yourself a size 39.
