I know that the pitch of the skate is fairly high, and that the lightspeed 2.0 runners have extremely long blades. Will I eventually notice a difference in skating speed, or is the biggest difference between my old skates and the new ones just in comfort?
The original lightspeed power runners were even longer, to the point that it was a liability because they would break.
The original lightspeeds, lightspeed 2's, and lightspeed power 2.1's should all be interchangeable.
