The carbonfibre shell of the HC Evo boot has been reinforced internal with extra layers of unidirectional carbonfibre and kevlar material which makes the boot super stiff and rigid for an optimal power transfer. All Powerslide carbon 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 – a unique feature in the world of freeskates!
The cuff was designed with support in mind. It´s made of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material. An integrated arch stiffens up the side to provide perfect lateral support. The long wings of the cuff can be cutted if the skaters leg is too thin and the closure maxes out. The strap passes a channel to keep it in place and to avoid slipping and flipping.
We designed a new last for the Hardcore Evo skate. The new Powerlast improves the heel lock as well as the comfort in the ankle and toe area. Our PU nanoleather upper material is soft, but very strong and resistant. PU nano leather upper materials are natural materials which are light weight, but resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. We use neoprene and microfiber materials for the inside lining which provides max. comfort. The Hardcore Evo is a “no-liner” boot which helps to transfer the energy directly from the foot to the wheels without any loss of energy. Our 3D anatomical padding is placed strategically around the ankle area, but also the tendon area of the shoe to ensure the most secure ankle and heel fit. The so called “speedfoam” used for the padding is another advanced material, which is also used in our racing shoes. This foam is soft, but not too soft to absorb energy yet very comfortable. Step in and feel well 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 without any compromises in the overall performance.
The Hardcore Evo boot features flat waxed laces which are easy to grab and a powerstrap placed anatomically on top of the toe box. Our Universal Flap used for the 45° closure is micro adjustable on both sides. The flap is ergonomically pre-shaped and features micro injected padding to reduce the pressure on the foot of the athlete.
The Powerslide Spider Pro aluminium frame is a top of the line FSK frame made of high end 7005 aluminium. It is based on a double voided construction. The extra ribs between the wheels increase the stiffness and help to lower the weight. The frame is very well balanced and super stiff. The range of Spider Pro frames covers 219mm, 231mm and 243mm length – all rockered. The frame comes with single axles with T25 torx head made of 7075 aluminium. The Spider Pro frames come with a laser print and a CNC machined finish which gives the frame a unique look. 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 you to adjust the boot-frame setup without any dead spot according to your skating style and preferences. The length of the frames used for the HC Evo skates varies with the shoe sizes in order to optimize the performance of the skate.
Powerslide Spinner wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that gives you everything you need - fast roll, good grip, long lifetime. The hub with the small dots is very a strong and durable construction. The size of the hub is matched with the size of wheel needed.
