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 a thing at the past, the Vi-shell is here to take over. It is made out of a special composite compound with fibreglass 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. A small replaceable side protector is placed on the outside of the shell in order to protect the steel wire of the lacing. “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 fiberglass. 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 newly constructed 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 fiberglass. 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 press 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. This 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, it 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 for aftermarket sales which are ALL heat mouldable.

The extra ribs between the wheels increase the stiffness and help to lower the weight. The frame is very well balanced, super stiff and sets a new standard for off road frames. The 11,6” long frame is equipped with 3x 125mm air tires with a super low center of gravity. This short frame is very easy to handle even in rough terrain. The frame comes with single axles with T25 torx head made of 7075 aluminium. The SUV ALU frames come with a laser print and a CNC machined finish which gives the frame a unique look.
