Powerslide Imperial – one of the most popular Powerslide skates – make comeback in 2019. Skate which was held in high regard by thousands of users worldwide, full of innovative ideas and features, lost none of its charm during 8 years on the market and still offers a solid offering for anyone looking for supportive, durable and sleek freeskates. Combining function and style, the Imperials are no shy of urban environment.
Skates are based around rigid hardboot made out of durable material further reinforced by addition of glass fibres in to the compound. The rigid shell provides excellent support, ensuring stability and safety even on big wheel frames with high centre of balance. No surprise that Imperial boot has become a gear of choice for many of world's best freeskaters. Speaking from our customer's experience, we can safely say that shell is best fitting for users with narrow to medium feet, offering tight, secure fit and great energy transfer. The boot itself can withstand a lot of abuse, but it's longevity is even further increased by addition of replaceable slider located in place most prone to damage during falls.
Other recognizable Imperial feature are metal plates sunken in to shell material in place of traditional mounting points. Each one of them has built-in X-slot system, which allows for smooth and precise frame position adjustments, both to the sides and front to back. This has always been one of strong points in Powerslide freeskates and we encourage you to take time and experiment with X-Slot to find optimal setting for yourself. In addition, metal plates reinforce frame and boot connection, making it more rigid and greatly improving energy transfer. Mount spacing is 165mm and boots are compatible with most of the frames which use this standard – also triskating ones.
Inside the shell you will find a new version of well-known MyFit FatBoy Dual Fit liner, this time made with special Recall padding which adjusts to your anatomy in body temperature. Naturally, the liner can be heat-moulded for better effect, just like previous versions. It is also laced in the upper part, a feature which allows securing tongue in place. The boot itself is fastened by shell lacing and two buckles – micro metric “spider” 45 degree closure as well as more traditional buckle with receiver on top of the cuff.
Imperial 110 Black Crismon comes with proven Unity frame made out of pressed aluminium. It is 255mm long and fits three Powerslide Spinner 110mm wheels of 86A hardness. Powerslide used Wicked ABEC9 bearings to make the whole setup even more dynamic. As a whole, these skates are swift, quick and reliable – an ideal tool for a skater looking for a pair of long lasting equipment for urban skating.
Even though years have passed and new models hit the market, Imperial lost none of their charm. It's still one of the best hardboot designs on the market, offering characteristics which will appeal to beginners and advanced skaters alike. Imperial 110 Black Crismon version is the latest entry in well received “Supercruiser” line of triskates and a solid choice for city skating.
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.
