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 Vi Pro Carbon racing shoe has a unique construction and look. The shell is made out of 100% carbonfibre. Unidirectional carbonfibre and kevlar reinforce the shell where needed. The flap is also made of 100% carbonfibre. All Powerslide and Core Racing 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 which enables us to heatmould the boot at any spot of the shoe as many times as needed.
The materials used for the Vi Pro Carbon racing sue are the best from the best. PU-Nanoleather upper material is the highest grade of microfiber leather you can find in the market. Its soft yet very strong and resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock and provides the support and performance the modern skater is looking for. 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 new 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 flecible for continuous comfort
This makes the boot more comfortable than any other boot.
The Vi pro carbon features a high power disc closure system, which is positioned on top of the flap and additional a second mid power disc closure system, which holds the foot perfectly in place. 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 could 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 Vi carbon frame is one of lightest and strongest carbon frames in the market. The overall construction of the frame is based on a sandwich construction using foams between the carbonfibre sidewalls. The benefits of this patented construction are weight reduction and increased stiffness. It enables us to create a frame that looks like a frame made of aluminium, which is unique. The second generation of the frame was developed in close collaboration with our race them. One of the results is the drastically reduced mounting deck height - 110mm/2 +51mm = 106mm at the front end. As we have lowered this mounting deck we have also been able to increase critical stiffness around the toe wheel. Another advantage is a slight weight saving compared to the previous generation. The Vi carbon 2.0 frame also features anti-slip pads on the mounting block to ensure a more secure fit between boot and frame. The frame comes with single axles with a strong torx head. 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.
