In 1998, Rollerblade had launched a European promotional tour for the Coyote. With its 15 cm tire wheels, this skate model was the figurehead of the brand. RB had created a pro team "Rollerblade Downhill Team" which took part in the tour after having competed for the ESPN X-Games in San Diego, California... It was a time where there were still resources in the world of skating!
