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 a 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 skater’s feet. ALL Vi-Skates are heatmouldable! The only composite skates in the market that offer this great possibility! Vi-Shells, but also the cuff and flap, are all heatmouldable! You can put your complete skate (without wheels) into the oven in order to adjust the fitting to your feet! Heat moulding instructions are shown by video on our PS-TV vimeo account! Moon boots and soft and flimsy skates are in the past, the Vi RS Junior shell is here to take over. It is made out of a special composite compound with carbon and fibreglass mixed into the material. This makes the shell strong and supportive. The Vi RS junior shell also features a 165mm 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-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. This skate has a special feature. You can transfer this high cut kids skate into a low cut speed skate by simply re-moving the cuff. The holes in the boot can be closed again with a rubber patch. Kids that are just starting in speedskating can get used to the higher speed and speedskates by using the cuff. They take off the cuff once they have gained more experience in speedskating and more balance to handle low cut skates.
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.
Even at an entry level, the Vi-RS Junior skate is equipped with same nano leather upper found throughout our collection. It is tough and durable, but also flexiable. Also sold with a removable liner made of neoprene material that allows the skater to grow into the boot.
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 speedfoam used for the padding is another advanced material for our racing shoes. This foam is soft, but not too soft to absorb energy yet very comfortable. Step in and feel comfortable from very first minute you wear the boot. The speedfoam padding does not take away space inside the shoe where you would need it, but fills up the empty spaces to give more comfort and control. This new padding makes the boot more comfortable and enhances in the overall performance.
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 top of the cuff features a micro adjustable buckle to fix the leg and to give extra support. The 45° strap adds support as well.
This new frame will be loved by skater who like very stiff and responsive frames. The Vi-MAG frame is not just looking like a light weight frame – it indeed is a light weight frame! Especially the kids will love the super light weight frames that we offer now. The frame is CNC milled to perfection and features nice lazer graphics. One of the special features is the scales along the side of the mounting slots, which are also placed on the front and rear to help the skater to adjust his frame-boot set up. The Vi-MAG frame features the 165mm standard mounting. It comes with single axles with torx head featuring first class lazer prints. The torx head has the advantage that the axles do not go round too easy compared with regular hex axles. The Vi magnesium frame has 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.
