POWERSLIDE TAU CARBON 90 TRINITY

UNISEX URBAN INLINE SKATE

Product-No: 908229

SIZE: 38-46 EU / 5-12 US

The Tau 90 is the face of a new era! It´s the first Triskate used for freestyle skating. Bigger wheels make sitting tricks easier and allow you to lift your heel and toe higher. The management of the balance on one wheel is easier and you are also able to get a higher speed for your tricks. The Tau 90 offers different rockering options which a regular 4 wheel skate can´t offer. You are enabled to rocker just one wheel or two wheels on your skates. You can even rocker your left and right skate in a different way to optimize your freestyle skating!

PRODUCT FEATURES

3-wheel skates combine dynamic rolling, agility and skating pleasure like no other skate, they are lighter, faster and lower. The different look and feel of 3-wheel skates is breathing new excitement into inline skating, and now, for the first time, skaters from different disciplines like fitness-, speed- or even free-skating enjoy the many advantages of rolling on 3 big wheels.

TRISKATE

TRINITY

The bigger the wheels get the more important are control and support over your skates. TRINITY puts skating to a new level. Skates featuring the TRINITY 3-point mounting outperform the standard mounting by far. TRINITY skates have the lowest possible center of gravity, which makes them easier to control and more reactive. You are also faster and more agile thanks to the better power transfer. Crush the competition with TRINITY.

More Specs

The Trinity carbon shell sets a new standard in the freeskating world. It´s the first carbon shell made by compression moulding like you know it from carbon parts made for the formula 1 cars or carbon frames and parts of high end race bikes. This manufacturing process enables us to reduce the weight of the shell by making the shell thinner but still increasing the overall strength compared with carbon shells made by regular wet lamination. Another benefit of the compression moulding process is the possibility to create shell designs with sharp contours which you only know from injected composite parts. The shell of the Tau skate is not symmetric as most of the shells you can find for skates. Our shell is perfectly shaped and anatomically built for left and right feet in order to create a better fitting and performance of the skate. The bottom of the shell is ventilated to keep your feet fresh.

The cuff was designed with support in mind. It´s made of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material. An integrated arch stiffens up the side to provide perfect lateral support. The long wings of the cuff can be cut if the skaters leg is too thin. The strap passes through a channel to keep it in place and to avoid slipping and flipping.

The patented Powerslide Katana rocker aluminium frame is a top of the line frame made of high end 6061 aircraft aluminium. It is based on a double voided construction. The extra ribs between the wheels increase the stiffness and help to lower the weight. The frame is very well balanced and super stiff thanks to its special TRINITY 3-point mounting construction and general distribution of the forces through 3 mounting points. The Katana frame gives you the opportunity to rocker the center and rear wheel or just one of them. A laser printed arrow on the head of the axle indicates if the wheel is rockerd up or down. The Katana 3x90mm rocker frames vary in length depending on the size of the Tau boot in order to optimize the set up for your freestyle skating. The Katana frame comes in 215mm, 225mm and 235mm length. The frame scores with superior finish. Its equipped with 8mm single axles incl. T25 torx head made of 7075 aluminium and special rocker axles. The CNC finish of the inside & outside of the frame is different setting a statement. Nice laser prints are “our” standard for this high end frame. 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 you to adjust the boot-frame setup without any dead spot according to your skating style and preferences. This special feature is unique in the FSK skate category! Powerslide is the ONLY skate brand that offers the skater the possibility to adjust the position of his frame fitting the personal preferences and skating skills!

CLOSURE

Ratchet buckle

The Power last of the Tau skate offers a great heel lock as well as the comfort in the ankle and toe area. The boot has been stiffened up to give you more support and to help you to safe some energy when you skate, especially when you do heel and toe tricks iin freestyle slalom or for your slides as well as for your speed slalom. Our PU nano leather upper material is soft, but very strong and resistant. PU nano leather upper materials are natural materials which are light weight, but resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. We use mesh and microfiber materials for the inside lining which provides max. comfort. The Tau is a “no-liner” boot which helps to transfer the energy directly from the foot to the wheels.

Our 3D anatomical padding is placed strategically around the ankle area, but also the tendon area of the shoe to asure the most secure ankle and heel fit. The so called “speedfoam” used for the padding is another advanced material, which is also used in our racing shoes. This foam is soft, but not too soft to absorb energy yet very comfortable. Step in and feel well 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 without any compromises in the overall performance.

Tau skates feature two ratchet buckles, one on top of the skate and one more to lock your foot. Additionally the Tau can be tightened with waxed laces from toe to the top to wrap your feet well for a better reactivity of your skates.
