K2 T:Nine Celena

Women's inline skates

Pros
  • Fast, comfortable and well balanced
  • Glide distance`
  • Good shock absorption
  • Can tighten laces on the fly
Cons
  • Too fast for beginners

K2's T:Nine Celena women's inline skates are very fast (with 90mm wheels), so experts say they probably aren't the best choice for beginners, who may find themselves quickly outside their comfort zone. These skates are intended for experienced skaters who want a speedy, comfortable, well-balanced ride. Reviewers say the K2 T:Nine skates have good balance and shock absorption, as well as an easy lacing system that makes it easy to tighten on the fly (but harder to loosen). Those looking for a beginner's inline skate might want to consider the Runner-up K2 T:Nine Alexis (*Est. $160).

1. Inline Planet.com

This in-depth review by an experienced skater ends with the conclusion that the K2 Celena is "great for cruising and touring." The writer also says these skates out-glide other skates by a significant distance, although she doesn't say what kind of skates they were using. She also recommends the K2 Celena as having "great shock absorption and rebound," which makes them a good choice for long-distance cruises.

2. The Wall Street Journal

This short article covers five inline skates, which the writer appears to have taken for a spin. The inline skates aren't rated or ranked, however. Featured, but not scored, are the K2 T:Nine Celena and Moto 90, the Rollerblade Activa 4.0 and Crossfire 4.0, and the World Class Skate EZ Terminator.

3. Amazon.com

The K2 T:Nine Celena inline skates for women garnered the most user reviews of any inline skates on Amazon.com (13). Nine reviewers gave the Celena 5 stars, four gave the Celena 4 stars, and there were no neutral or negative reviews. Reviewers cited comfort and high performance as pros for this skate, but the large (that is, fast) 90mm wheels caused problems for some beginners, who might feel more comfortable in the K2 Alexis, the runner-up in the women's category.
