FIRS decided no to allow 125mm wheels

The Fédération Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS) has discussed permission of speedskates with 125mm wheels during the conference of FIRS and CEC which was held in Madrid (Spain). The executive board acknowledged that a skate with 125mm wheels is too dangerous and therefore will not be allowed in competition. Maximum wheel size remains 110mm.

"The change from 100 to 110 mm created problems for smaller foot size people, virtually discriminated against them, as they could not get plates in the desired position with the boot & skill level decreased, also the extra money costs involved for everyone, a very good decision by the CIC. "
