One of the hottest trends at the moment is LED lights for skates which are available in a wide range of colors, either as standard or with the ability to twinkle. LED lights are battery operated and can last for half a day, or night, with a single charge of the replaceable battery, which is a button sized cell in the control unit. It is possible to get LED lights for skates that are manufactured specifically for this purpose, or by using a little creativity to design your own mods.
LED Lights for Skates Inline Roller Blades
LED lights for skates are easily attached to the inline blade style of skates. The tiny lights come in a tube that is applied to the outside of the blade, just below the skates arch. Next the control unit is installed just within the opening of the arch and the lights are attached to the unit. The unit has an on/off switch to conserve power when it may be too bright during daylight hours to get the full effect of the lights.
Colors and Styles of LED Lights for Skates
There are several colors available in LED lights for skates. While most common colors are red, green, blue and white, there are also multicolored tubes, and an assortment of bright pinks, purples, oranges and other trendy colors. The flasher circuit is optional, but most skaters opt to purchase it because of the great effects it provides. Some skaters also opt for the tape LED lights that can be applied with self-stick adhesive tape.
Optional Applications of LED Lights for Skates
Because LED lights are available on the self-stick double-backed adhesive that is mentioned above, many skaters apply a strip around the perimeter of the top around the ankle or a single small strip down the back. Also, strings of LED lights can be entwined in the laces up the front for an even more unique variation. The control unit is so small it can be neatly tucked under the arch or just outside the front flap.
Because of their solid state durability, LED lights for skates can handle being roughed about while skating. Whether using pre-designed LED lights for skates or making your own mods, they are trendy and are sure to get noticed. For the greatest effect, light the tiny lamps during the evening or nighttime hours.
