Comments: Awesome skate. Transituioning from roller to ice was definitely a daunting task as far as skates were concerned, but these skates made it easy. It's nice and stiff for the intermediate level of play. It took a few skate sessions for it to fully break in so it was a surprisingly quick break in. This skate will last you for a couple seasons so if you want a good quality, durable skate, this skate is right for you.

Comments: I played roller hockey for several years and the Bauer X40s were the perfect transition into ice. They are light weight and have great ankel support. They also hold up very well to wear and tear. The break in was very fast. It only took a couple of games for them to be perfectly molded to my foot and stop hurting. And that was after baking. Overall I would recommend these skates for the beginner to intermediate ice player.
