The Kinetic 80 is the intersection of style, performance, and value in recreational skates. Featuring K2's F.B.I. frame to absorb road vibration and lower the skater's center of gravity, this skate will make it easier to balance. Its Stability cuff creates the perfect blend of ankle support and flex while 80mm wheels provide higher speeds and a smoother roll. K2's Speed Lacing System makes getting in and out of skates a quick and easy process, and the K2 Softboot design delivers proven comfort.

I was worried the bearings would be a bottleneck but they're better after a bit of skating - out of the box they wouldn't spin longer than a few seconds; after 10 miles of skating outdoors they roll longer than 10 seconds and they don't feel too bad while skating.
I'm curious about how they'll hold up over time but I'm sure the boots will outlast the wheels. I don't use the brake so I removed it and used some washers to account for the longer bolt (it's wider to allow it to hold the brake in place, but without the brake the bolt is too long). But a quick email to K2 and they're sending me a standard length screw to allow for no brake skating.
I wish I could've sprung an extra $100 for the SEBA FRX or another $200 for the SEBA FR2 but I'll use this to get back up to speed after not skating much for 15 years.
One thing to note though: the structure holding the wheels in place is plastic. It appears to be the same semi-flexible plastic that is used for the structure of the boot, which is great for ensuring that it doesn't break; it flexes instead of snapping.
That being said, the material does get damaged, and over time the front inside of my blade has become quite disfigured. I travel on sidewalks and bike paths, and once in a while my blade will slip over the edge of the bike path, scuffing against the side of the asphalt. After 25 days and 112 miles they've held up pretty well, however if I replace them I will purchase skates with metal wheel-holding blades for better durability.
