The Skeleton-shell provides a wide base which can be adjusted in length to fit various shoe sizes. You can use your own shoes to skate these nordic skates. This blade & walk concept which Powerslide has used for several years already is now offered the first time for nordic skating. Its also perfect for nordic skating schools or the skate rental business. A similar base is also used in aggressive skating for years and has proven its strength and regidity. It is made out of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material. This makes this shell especially strong and supportive. It also features a combined 165mm and 195mm long mounting distance with X-slot to be able to adjust all frames to the side, front and rear, in order to find the perfect skating position for everybody. The wide and strong flap of the shell gives the shell a look of a snowboard binding. The padded flap locks the foot perfect in the shell.
The Skeleton-cuff was designed with support in mind. It is made out of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material. The big V-cut of the cuff gives the leg a lot of freedom to flex back. The buckle comes in a classic style.
This 3-D stamped 6061 aircraft aluminium frame is a one piece construction that offers stiffness and durability but is light-weight at the same time. The frame features two composite mounting blocks that are in a 165mm / 195mm standard mounting-distance. The frame fits various fitness skate models so that customization is possible. The frame uses 8mm axles. Fenders in the front and the back can be assembled as accessories.
The 6 ¼” air tires are made by Innova – a well known manufacturer for tires. They come with a 5 spoke rim. The rubber outer jacket is reinforced with Vectran fibers adding strength to the jacket. The tire has an off road profile for better grip. The tires are inflateable up to maximum 6,3bar / 90 psi. We also offer 150mm Super High Rebound PU wheels for those skaters who like to skate mainly on asphalt roads and like to have more speed.

Easy and effective lacing system
Adjustable brake system
The outside of the padding of the cuff and flap is made of high grade canvas material. The cuff features a micro adjustable buckle – an easy and effective lacing system. The flap also features a micro adjustable buckle which has a lot of power to put pressure on the foot and to keep the shoe perfectly in the shell.
This skate comes with a 2-piece construction. The cuff features a thick and comfortable padding for the leg. The flap features a one piece pre-shaped 3-D padding. It spreads the pressure perfecty to the entire foot.
The material of the “brake stamp” of the cuff brake has been changed to aluminium in order to improve the metering. The brake offers a lot of possibilities to adjust to the individual’s preferences and skating skills. This provides the skater with a secure feeling and optimal braking function. The skater has the possibility to adjust the brake to the angle they feel comfortable. The height adjustment function is perfect to find the preferred personal braking position, with a straighter leg or more angled legs. The skate comes with one brake system only. The skater has the option purchase an additional brake system if they feel more secure with one brake on each skate.
Skating off road and in the wet is fun, but can also be a very dirty affair. The Powerslide composite fender protects the athlete perfectly when skating in wet conditions.
