Pain Free Shell - heat mouldable
Together with it’s big brother the XXX, the PULS boot features a compression moulded, pain free shell. However this time it’s a glass fiber mix. A new model for Powerslide, the PULS is a high performance package that won’t break the bank, and will also be tough enough to service even the most demanding skater.

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 carbonfibre 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 neoprene 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 PULS 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.
