The Vi-Concept it simple but effective: Clap – Snap – Wrap is how you do it. Open the flap, close it and tighten it by turning the disc knob. This will give you an completely new skating feeling, total control with perfect fit. 360° lacing and the full wrap technology make it possible. The shell is stiff and light with a sleek and narrow look and feel, while offering all the comfort you need. The shell is the first and only fitness shell that is not symmetric, but is perfectly shaped and anatomically built to the skaters feet. Moon boots and soft and flimsy skates are past, the Vi-shell is here to take over. It is made out of a special composite compound with carbon and fiberglass mixed into the material. This makes the shell strong and supportive. The Vi-shell also features a 195mm mounting with the Powerslide X-slot, which enables the skater to adjust the frame to the side and to the front and backwards, for the perfectly customized frame-boot position. The bottom is ventilated and incorporates the X-design to guarantee torsion stiffness and perfect power transfer for each stride. “Vi” is not just an evolution – Vi is a revolution.
The Vi-FSK cuff is light and supportive. It is made out of a special composite compound with added carbon and fibreglass. This makes this slim cuff strong and supportive. The asymmetrical shape of the cuff, which fits perfectly to the shell adds further strength to the construction. The buckle is a clean and stylish fast lock buckle with a new female buckle receptor.
The Vi-Flap is a unique feature no other skate in the market offers. It is made out of a special composite compound with added carbon and fibreglass. This makes the flap strong and supportive. The metal wire of the 360° disc lacing system slips through the channels of the flap and firmly presses the flap towards the foot when the shoe is tightened with the disc knob. The padding under the flap distributes the pressure evenly on the foot and locks the foot perfectly into the shell.
This skate is equipped with the MY FIT “FAT BOY” liner. The Vi-powerlast 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 in order to customize the fitting. The padding in cuff and ankle area consists of a thicker padding, a combination of heat mouldable material and EVA foam, for maximum comfort. The front of the liner has a low volume. The tongue is integrated, thus providing great control and fit. Unlike many other tongues of skates this tongue cannot move or slip down during skating activities. The heel part with the V-cut is fully heat mouldable. The liner has a thicker padding, great heel lock and has the look of a foam liner with more performance and control. The liner is light and hand washable. This liner also features a dual density innersole and a carrying strap. Powerslide offers 3 different MY FIT liners in the aftermarket which are ALL heat mouldable.
The Atop disc closure device was developed to simplify lacing systems and to provide benefits that are not granted by traditional closure systems:
Simple: Anyone can use it, from kids to adults with just one hand to secure the best possible fit.
2nd Skin Fit: The Atop disc closure system achieves superior comfort and fit with a controlled and balanced closure and avoids any pressure points.
Micro-adjustable: The Atop disc closure system offers the most precise and accurate fit you can get - fine tuning perfection
Low in Weight: The Atop system is light and strong It can not be lighter for the power you get out of it.
Speed Lacing: Easy and fast to put on and off, turn it, tighten it, turn back to open - it could not be easier!
Security: Once dialled in, Atop never loses tension and gives you the security other traditional lacing systems can not offer.
Performance: The Atop II disc closure system provides double the power of any traditional lacing system while being flexible and giving the amount of flex you need for perfect performance.
Easy: The Atop disc closure system offers an easy exchange of wire and parts and is also easy to clean to secure a long lasting performance.
The Powerslide Vector frame is a one piece casted construction, out of high quality AZ61Magnesium. Magnesium is not only very strong it is also around 20% lighter than Aluminium. Furthermore the design is a so called two face design, in the sense that the inner and outer sidewalls of the frame are not identical. Instead they are designed to provide stiffness and support only where it is really needed. Thanks to this revolutionary design even more weight could be saved in comparison to the current frames on the market. The Vector frame is 273mm / 10,8” long and fits max. 4x90mm wheels and has built in frame spacers. The frames is equipped with 8mm single axle system and offers pure skating pleasure thanks to the super light weight construction.
This skate is equipped with Powerslide “Vector” 90mm / 82A Super High Rebound wheels. The unique construction of the core in combination with the low amount of PU-material make this wheel incredible light weight. The core is made to fit 688 standard mini bearings.
The skate features Powerslide ABEC 7 688 mini bearings which are lubricated with high viscose synthetic oil. The bearing has two serviceable rubber coated shields, a nylon composite cage and contains 7 balls. The raceway and balls are made of honed and polished chrome steel to guarantee a smooth and perfect ride.
The height adjustable brake system (HABS) offers a lot of advantages compared to the traditional heel brake. The braking surface has a bigger contact area, for a faster and more controlled braking action. The height adjustment function is perfect to find the preferred personal braking point, lower or higher, with straight legs for more braking power or angled legs. Also once worn down the brake pad can be lowered to keep the best braking point for more safety and security. The HABS is for sure the best and most effective heel brake system on the market. Easy to mount to the frame and to replace, made out of the best possible materials. Available in different colours for replacement.
