Our company and our values

Backed by more than 20 years of outstanding innovation, quality and sporting successes there is MOTA SKATES. A new name, new look and a new meaning. Our logo was designed to represent both Doug and Julie in sport and in life: wings for freedom, circular background for longevity, sharp lines for quality, thick borders for strength, and slanted letters for speed.

Our long history, which has greatly helped the birth and development of modern inline racing and roller derby, is driven in the innovative spirit and has become an integral part of our new company’s DNA. Continually striving for maximum performance and quality combined with a taste for style and form will make the world of MOTA SKATES and its products stand out in every aspect.

Skater service and care will round out our pursuit of excellence.  Ensuring what skaters find in the MOTA SKATES brand is an unrivaled support in his or her passion for skating.

Natural innovators

Since 1996 – the first inline racing frame with full color graphics and 7075 aluminum made in USA.  In 1997 – the first power strap with micro adjustment buckles and micro fiber uppers for inline speed skates.  In 2009 – the first 59×38 quad wheel dedicated to roller derby. In 2012 – the first integrated anatomical foot bed for performance quad and inline boots.

The same thread will continue to run through MOTA SKATES: we have always looked beyond in order to offer something that is more evolved, better performing and the highest quality.

Over the years and down through the generations, this way of thinking and creating has become a sort of natural imprinting for our nature, our company and those who work with us.
