Kids on Triskates
You may be astonished to hear that Triskates for kids have been around for quite some time already. Size adjustable inline skates for very small feet have been offered with 3 wheels for years. Kids skate on 3x100mm setups since many years as well in speedskating and now they even go bigger skating 3x125mm setups at indoor races in the USA for example. Another example comes from inline hockey where kids play on 3 wheel skates for years as well.
Powerslide took it a step further now and offers adjustable Triskates for kids in all sizes and adding bigger wheels, but still keeping the frames short and low.
Why are Triskates perfect for kids?
- Triskates have a very low center of gravity.
- The skates are easy to handle and to control.
- The frames are shorter than 4 wheel frames for easier handling and more fun to learn skating.
- The middle wheel under the center of the foot acts like a pivot point.
- The skate is much more agile and easier to turn which helps to learn skating faster.
- Triskates are lighter than 4 wheel skates – shorter frames, less wheels, less bearings and hardware is needed, which result in a lower weight. Kids are not as powerful and can enjoy skating for a longer time with less weight on their feet.
- Triskates just look cooler!
Asha Kirkby from Skatefresh, London´s first skate school, has worked on a video tutorial series teaching kids skating on Triskates. You can watch the videos following the Powerslide Youtube channel.
