Difference between an "Outdoor Skate" and "Indoor Skate"

The difference between an outdoor quad skate and an indoor quad skate are the wheels. The outdoor quad skates feature wheels that are soft which allows for a smoother roll on the non-smooth surfaces such as sidewalks & streets. The indoor quad skates feature wheels which are typically harder than outdoor wheels. A harder wheel will give you a smoother roll on very smooth surfaces like those at skating rinks.
