The shell of the Imperial skate is made of composite material, which is reinforced with 15% fiberglass to make the shell strong and stiff. The base of the mounting blocks is big and wide which provides a large contact area between the frame and boot.
The cuff was designed with support in mind. It is made out of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material.
This skate is equipped with the MY FIT “Fat Boy” liner. This liner is a real masterpiece. The last was created by Sergio Mc Cargo, the No.1 shoemaker in the inline skating world. The liner is fully lasted. It has a perfect shape and fit, it wraps around your foot like a sock. The liner can be heat moulded at around 80° C in an oven or with a strong hair dryer in order to customize the fitting. The liner has a unique 3 layer padding consisting of heat mouldable foams, EVA foam and additional 3-D foam in the ankle area for a perfect ankle and heel lock to increase support during every stride. Under the lining we added soft sponge foam for extra comfort and support. On the outside the padding is kept in shape with a special heat mouldable thermo sheet. The liner is light and also features a dual density innersole and a carrying strap. Powerslide offers different MY FIT liner for aftermarket sales which are ALL heat mouldable.

The Imperial skate features round laces which tighten well. There are two buckles – one placed at 45° to keep the heel in place, the other one on top of the cuff for a secure wrap.
The Powerslide Beta frame is made of 6061 aircraft aluminium and is based on a double voided construction. The frame is basically a simplified Alpha frame which is well known in the FSK community. The frame therefore is also very stiff and very well balanced. The frame comes with single axles made of 7075 aluminium. 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 spots according to your skating style and preferences.
Powerslide Defcon wheels provide pure rolling FUN! This wheel is made for your every day skating. The dual density compound gives the wheel its special characteristics. The soft inside takes away shocks and impacts for a smooth ride even on rough terrain whereas the harder outside PU provides you fast roll. Defcon wheels combine the best of both world in one.
