Kizer Element was one of the most advanced aggressive frames in history and to this day is considered by many as one of the best frames for skating flat. A feature that made it standing ahead of competition was aluminium core – thanks to it, the energy transfer and strength of Element were unmatched. On the other hand, the fact that sidewalls and replaceable H-block were attached by additional screws made the whole thing heavier than competition. Moreover, it was never a very good choice for skating street, where much cheaper composite frames were a more sensible solution.
After several years, Kizer is back with Element II frame and fresh perspective on the frame applications. First of all, Element II is a frame designed for people who skate park. Why? It is made entirely out of aluminium – the goal was to create a frame that skates fast and slides well on coping and rails. Nothing beast that metal-on-metal grinding feel! The frame is much lighter than its predecessor thanks to lack of additional plastic parts, one-piece 8mm axles and built-in frame spacers. Staying true to its heritage, the Element II is made for skating flat – it uses a hybrid wheel setup 68-60-60-68 and measures 260mm. By tinkering with wheel sizes (for example using 64mm wheels on the outside axles) you can easily achieve a rockered setup allowing for easier, quicker turns. Wheels are big enough to allow for smooth and fast skating, which is amplified even further by a rigidity of full aluminium frame.
Thanks to wheel setup, there is plenty of space for H-block, which also protects inner wheels, preventing wheel bite. The H-block usually wears out much quicker than frame walls and thus, it is replaceable to extend the frame longevity. This element was also made entirely out of aluminium!
Skating flat becomes popular again after over two decades of anitrocker and freestyle setups craze. Element II is a great solution for skaters who spend most of their time riding park and prefer eight wheels on the ground.
Powerslide is one of industry’s leaders even though it is relatively young company – it has been founded in year 1994. The Germany based brand has entered the market at height of inline skating’s popularity, at the time when market was flooded with low quality skates which could be described as toys rather than sport equipment. From the very beginning, Powerslide had one goal: to break the perception of inline skating being a leisure activity for kids and to promote it as a sport for everyone. That’s not a surprise considering that company’s owner, Matthias Knoll, is a skater himself. As speedskating contender, he breathes this sport and his love for it has been fuelling Powerslide for over 25 years.
If we were to describe Powerslide in three words, these would be: quality, variety and innovation. From the very beginning of company’s existence, Germans have challenged industry’s giants and competed with them in field of quality. Nowadays they are in lead of the pack when it comes to technology: heatmoldable liners and boots, compressed carbon shells, revolutionary Trinity mounting – these things are relatively fresh and competition is yet to respond. Looking back, Powerslide was the first company to introduce carbon freestyle skate with integrated padding. They were the first company to introduce carbon based aggressive skate. 125mm wheels were introduced to speedskating thanks to them. The introduction of Kizer Advance frame and then Level 2 made a big impact and lead to rapid evolution of aggressive flat frames. Germans were the first company to make triskates a significant part of their offering, starting a new trend. Nowadays, Powerslide are the only company that makes real off-road skates (not to be confused with off-road rollerskis).
This pursuit of change and improvement is unique – no other company in this industry is having a boss willing to take even the craziest of ideas and concepts to production stage. Powerslide also have, without a shadow of doubt, the richest catalogue of products among all skating companies; covering even the most niche equipment made for freestyle slalom, downhill and inline alpine. They have full range of accessories and parts: helmets, protection pads, wheels, bearings, frames and so on. The company is also making rollerskates, providing recreational, roller derby and skatepark models and equipment. It can be safely said that if Powerslide is not making something skating related, chances of other companies having it in their offer are slim to none.
Powerslide have an impressive brand portfolio: MyFit liners, Wicked bearings, Reign hockey skates, USD aggressive skates, Kizer frames, Undercover wheels, Matter wheels, Gawds boots, wheels and softgoods, Prime wheels, Juice rollerskates wheels, Chaya rollerskates, Ennui protection and many others.
What makes Powerslide special are company’s people and supporters who create a community around it. Germans support and cooperate with skaters all around the globe. International Powerslide Team is composed of names every inline skating fan should be familiar with and believe us - there are far too many to list them here.
