Quad skating, also known as ‘Old School’ skating / ‘Roller Skating’ is the original skating on a square wheel base with a toe stop on the front and four wheels placed in pairs, two wheels at the front and two at the back.
These skates are often seen in sports such as Roller Derby, Dance on Skates / Jam skating / Artistic Skating, Hockey on quads, and I am sure there are many other quad sports out there. The wheel base has an inbuilt mechanizms that promotes flexibilty and agility in rotation making them fantastic for sports that need need this agility and rotation.
