The WE LOVE TO SKATE STORY
Our story began back in 1994, when the inline boom was launching. The whole “new inline skate wave” crossed the Atlantic Ocean and resulted in the foundation of POWERSLIDE. The driving salesman and speed skater Matthias Knoll alongside his business partner Stefan Göhl set the stage and created an impressive company history. Initially POWERSLIDE’s assortment of products was composed for the most part by those already established in the booming inline paradise in the USA. However, it didn’t stop there, soon they completed their collection with some well known in-house brands, before finally going on to create their very own product line. By 1997 the dream of creating their own brands had become a reality. Now they had to take control of the situation, learning from setbacks and always evolving and improving.
The passion for products and the love for the sport has driven Powerslide over the past two decades. The product range has been developed step by step and Powerslide successfully managed to create new and exciting products as well as to establish new brands in the roller sport universe.
Rollsport is our home and having fun on wheels doesn´t mean you always need to have wheels under your feet like inline skates or roller skates. You can enjoy wheels also by riding skate- and longboards or cruising with a scooter. As well as the equipment for the summer sports we also develop skates and equipment for winter as rolling on streets and gliding on the ice are very similar.
Powerslide has become the driving force in the inline industry, always striving for fresh ideas to make products better and to make the impossible possible.
Powerslide is the pioneer of the Triskate revolution. Our Triskate technology can be found in all skating disciplines – from fitness and kids skating to speed skating, from urban skating to off road skating and hockey. The Powerslide ethos centres around our core values of innovation, quality, performance and design. You can see this in every detail of our products.
Our collection is composed of what many would consider to be the most complete product range available in the inline market.
Our strength and enthusiasm will accompany us for many many years to come, continuing to realize all our dreams and pushing to reach our goals. We still find ourselves brimming with ideas and passion, the fire inside burns stronger than ever.
We invite you to accompany us on our journey into the future.
