The mission and vision of Mota Skates is to manufacture unique skate components at a premium price that deliver an enhanced experience for the skater with the highest quality of service.
Mota Skates offer dynamic performance combined with superb design and premium quality.
Mota is for skaters and made by skaters. It is 100% owned and operated by Doug & Julie Glass who collectively have 19 World Titles. Two World Titles are on Quad skates for Doug and 17 World Titles are held by Julie for inline skates. Doug & Julie first entered the inline skate business in 1997 manufacturing carbon inline boots and aluminum frames in Huntington Beach, California. Doug has been in the industry and competitive speed skater since 1978 and Julie since 1989. Their passion is developing products to enhance skater performance and that passion shines through the Mota products. Doug and Julie were the oringinal founders, developers, and marketers of Atom, Bionic and Luigino from 2002-2015. An unfortunate partnership in 2012 removed them from their passion and authenticity with Atom Skates. They have now returned to their roots and passion in June 2015 with the birth of Mota Skates.
