The Powerslide DNA is based on innovation, quality, design and performance and you can see this in every detail of our products. ENJOY!
This is quite simple, bigger wheels are faster. They roll faster, they roll with less restraint over any obstacle. This will give you a longer stride and can keep the speed for a longer time. Speed was never as fun as now on TRISKATES. Also too because you are pushing off bigger wheels, there is more foot print on the ground so you can push with more power. Moreover being more agile on your skates, the speed is easier to control.
With four wheels you have two middle wheels which are actually working against each other when you try to steer and navigate the skate. With TRISKATES you have one center wheel, this is your pivot point – your center of gravity. So turning around the corner will be easier having only one center point, it is like spinning a coin. It becomes easier to turn, skate tighter corners, and actually this also makes it easier on the straight line to find your outside and inside edges. This helps you to get the double push technique going which now has been redefined and optimized for TRISKATES.
A 3×100 mm frame is naturally a bit higher than a 4x80mm frame. But in relation to a 4x100mm frame, a skate with 3 wheels is actually lower. The mounting position is optimized and the third wheel sits very low inside the arch of the boot. This brings the center of gravity down and creates more stability.
Even you are using bigger wheels for TRISKATES the weight is actually less. The frames are shorter, and you also save the weight of one wheel, two bearings, a spacer and an axle. So in the end the overall weight is less and you can enjoy longer skating sessions.
Triskates are great for beginners. The super low profile gives you lots of control and makes them easy to maneuver. The lighter weight will help, too. The art of skating has never felt better than starting on a good pair of supportive TRISKATES. For a beginner, make sure the boot is strong and stiff enough to support your ankle. Make sure your ankle does not fall to the inside. Beginners will enjoy skating much more with bigger wheels. In the beginning, we recommend using slower wheels to start up or use slower bearings. Other options to slow down the skates is to take out the bearing spacers and tighten the axles, then the wheels will not roll as fast and it will be easier to learn.
Triskates have a very low center of gravity and they have short frames. So they are easy to maneuver and with the center wheel they are easy to turn and control.
Kids will enjoy skating much more, and with the bigger wheels they will have more fun, too. In the beginning, slower wheels or slower bearings can be used to reduce the speed. Other options to make the skates slower is to take out the bearing spacers and tighten the axles, then the wheels will not roll as easily and it will be easier to learn.
The skates are lighter, faster and you can skate further and longer. So naturally, you will burn more calories and shape your body easier. Plus it is more fun, so you never want to stop… TRISKATES will make you stronger and more fit.
