Speed skaters have precious feet! Spending countless hours chasing the dream, their feet take a hammering. The two areas which take the brunt of this impact are the navicular bone on the inside of the foot and the outside rear part of the heel. With our pain free shell we have removed the sections of carbon causing this pain and because our shell is compression moulded we do not sacrifice any stiffness. This manufacturing technology enables us to cut out the shell as well as adding nicely shaped reinforcements to increase the stiffness of the shell. We can create shapes with sharp contours in our carbonfiber shells which you usually only know from injected composite shells. This is giving our shells a very special and unique look. Powerslide is the only brand in inline skating offering compression molded shells.
Our PU nanoleather upper material is soft but very strong and resistant. We took out some reinforcement materials to make the upper even more light weight and flexible to create a Second Skin Fit (SSF) as this outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. The mesh inserts in the upper help to regulate the clima in the boots allowing fresh air to cool down your feet. The high quality microfibre that we use for the inside lining is very strong but yet soft to the skin for a nice comfy feeling.
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 Poron padding is not taking away space inside the shoe where you would need it, but fills up the empty spaces to give more comfort and control. Poron Urethans were originally designed for medical purposes to provide custom foam cushioning and comfort which is essential. We chose a slow recovery urethane for our racing shoes – a unique custom contouring material. This material rebounds slowly when compressed, which results in a custom fit during each use. Features of Poron are:
- shock absorbing to protect against impacts
- breathable to keep feet dry and cool
- maintains cushioning for maximum performance
- lightweight and flexible for continuous comfort
This makes the boot more comfortable than any other boot.
To ensure a good fit the Triple-X skate uses waxed laces and a “Icon” micro adjustable ratchet buckle, which holds your foot perfectly in place and giving the skater a nice supportive and safe feeling, which is needed to optimize the power transfer.
Our top of the line Core Triple X3 frame is the perfect balance of weight and rigidity. It´s made of 7005 aircraft aluminium. The Triple X3 is the stiffest frame that we have in our collection. The X-trusion of the Triple X3 frame is a high tech construction. The X-Box Technology™ of the frame add strength to the frame where needed and reduce the overall weight as much as possible. It enables us to give the frame a unique look. Some parts of the frame have been machined and anodized in a red color later, which makes the frame even more outstanding. Needles to say that the frame comes with single axles including a strong torx head and an exclusive lazer print finish. All frames of the Powerslide and Core Racing 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.
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-compound 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 race conditions. Different hubs and different technologies have been thrown into the pot to find the right mix. The victories of the entire team at varous race events throughout the past few years proofed that the hard work was worth it. Thanks to a great team work we now proudly present the new collection of Matter wheels that is already used for the speed skate collection from Powerslide and Core racing.
