The shell of the Imperial skate is made of composite material, which is reinforced with 15% fibreglass 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. The 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, 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 in the aftermarket 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 Alpha ALU 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 frame comes with single axles made of 7075 aluminium. Alpha ALU 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 spots according to your skating style and preferences.
Matter is the No. 1 Race wheel brand since more than a decade now! The technology from the “Formula 1” of inline skating was transferred into our freeskating wheel collection. Matter has worked hard in the past on the wheel development. Every wheel of the collection has been tweaked to get the extra percentage out of every PU-compund to make the wheels even faster, and more grippier than before. Many different batches of wheels have been poored, tested and reworked and tested again under real skating conditions. Different hubs and different technologies have been thrown into the pot to find the right mix. The results show that all the efforts was worth it. Matter wheels are by far the most advanced freeskate wheels in the market with the festest roll, the most grip and longest lifetime. No other brand offers wheels that can be used as allround wheels on one hand, but at the same time also have their special features for certain surfaces and conditions.
