Title: Anti-lock braking system for rollerblades

Abstract: An anti-lock braking system for in-line skates comprises a brake shoe adjacent each wheel of the skates. A skate boot has an articulated cuff for initiating braking action when the cuff is pivoted in a backward or forward direction as selected. Pivoting the cuff functions to move the brake shoes into braking contact with the wheels. Springs are connected to the brake shoes via a cable system to bias the brake shoes out of contact with the wheels and thus to prevent brake lock-up.
