put as much energy to develop their high end skate a the entry level.
X-skate is equipped with same nano leather upper found throughout our
collection. It is tough and durable, but also flexible enough to wrap around
the foot. To ensure a good fit the X-skate uses waxed laces and a spider
buckle, and Velcro straps to hold the fore-foot secure.
Powerslide X- skate shell is made of a carbon/fiberglass mix and a basalt fiber
outer layer. As basic material basalt is a black, alkaline extrusive rock. With
only 5% higher density than the conventional glass fiber, basalt fiber offers
in comparison a 15% higher tensile strength, higher compressive strength and
rigidity. Basalt fibers are 100% natural and inert, e.g. they are classified as
non-poisonous and non-carcinogenic = 100% eco friendly.
The special lay-up and mix of fiber materials make the Powerslide shells very
strong and rigid. All Powerslide and Core Racing shells are heat moldable due
to a special epoxy that is used in our shell construction. SHMR, also known as
Super Heat Moldable Resin, enables us to heat mould the boot at any spot of the
shoe as many times as needed.
3D anatomical padding is placed strategically around the ankle and tendon area
of the shoe to assure the most secure ankle and heel fit. The speed foam used
for the padding is another advanced material for our racing shoes. This foam is
soft, but not too soft to absorb energy yet very comfortable. Step in and feel
comfortable from very first minute you wear the boot. The speed foam padding
does not take away space inside the shoe where you would need it, but fills up
the empty spaces to give more comfort and control. This new padding makes the
boot more comfortable and enhances in the overall performance.
Powerslide X frame is a light weight, but rigid single voided frame made of
6061 aircraft aluminum. The frame is also very stiff due to its tricky CNC
machinering. The frame length is adjusted to the shoe size. A 12,0” frame
length is used for the smaller size range (37 to 42 EU) and a 12,8” frame size
for the larger size range (43 to 46). Both frames are made for max. 4x100mm
wheel set ups
combination of the across slot in the frame and the along slot in our boots is
called the X-Slot Mounting. This system enables the skater to adjust the
boot-frame setup without any dead spots according to their skating style and
Powerslide Infinity 100mm x 85A.
The Infinity wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that give skaters all they
need - fast roll, good grip, long lifetime. The traditional 5 spoke hub is a
light weight construction. The size of the hub is matched with the size of
The New Wicked (WCD), is a new hardware brand, and the x-skate skate features the ABEC 7 bearings.
