The shell of the Infinity skate is made of a carbon/fiberglass mix and a special textile fiber outer layer. The special layup and mix of fiber materials make the Powerslide shells very strong and rigid. All Powerslide and Core Racing shells are heat mouldable due to a special epoxy that is used in our shell construction. SHMR is also known as Super Heat Mouldable Resin enables us to heatmould the boot at any spot of the shoe as many times as needed.
UPPER & LINING
Our PU nanoleather upper material is soft, but very strong and resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. Strategically placed stitching lines reinforce the upper where needed. The so called Bionic Bridge Design™ is copied from modern architecture and mother nature. Hanging bridges are designed after the bionic constructions of spider nets, holding up extreme forces. We use neoprene and microfiber materials for the inside lining for maximum comfort.
Our 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 new speedfoam 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 speedfoam 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.
The Infinity racing shoe features regular waxed laces. The skate comes with a regular flap including a micro adjustable spider buckle. The buckle position can be adjusted on the buckle protector to fit wider feet.
This new frame will be loved by skater who like very stiff and responsive frames. The VI ALU frame is not just looking like a light weight frame – it indeed is a light weight frame! The frame is CNC milled to perfection and features nice lazer graphics. One of the special features is the scales along the side of the mounting slots, which are also placed on the front and rear to help the skater to adjust his frame-boot set up.
The Vi ALU frame features the 195mm standard mounting. It comes with M7 standard single axles with torx head featuring first class lazer prints. The torx head has the advantage that the axles do not go round too easy compared with regular hex axles.
All frames of the Core collection have some CNC cuts around the front and rear mounting block to fit our Pitch & Stride Control.
The 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 his skating style and preferences.
Powerslide Infinity wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that give the kids 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 wheel needed.
Powerslide ABEC 7 Freespin bearings have a very fast spin as the name says. The bearing contains 7 chrome steal bearings and a light weight Delrin (nylon by Du Pont®) cage. A special super low friction synthitic oil from germany is used for this bearing.
