Powerslide Phuzion Argon Cloud 110 is one of the most technologically advanced softboot fitness skates on the market. For seasoned veterans of inline skating these for sure look familiar – this is because Argon models are based on X-Shell construction template which has been used by Powerslide for majority of the company’s existence.
X-Shell based skates are constant element of Powerslide’s catalogue for a reason. Matthias Knoll, the company’s boss, holds this skate in high regard, going as far as saying that it’s the most comfortable and the best fitness boot he had ever skated. This year, the concept has been tweaked and improved in many areas, resulting in a complete package made without any compromises.
Starting from the base, the outer skeleton of the skate – it is made out of polymer material reinforced with addition of glass fibre. This vastly improves rigidity, resulting in better energy transfer and ankle support. The Trinity system has become a standard in Powerslide skates and was used in Phuzion line in previous year’s collection – however, all new models received a little tweak to frame and boot connection. The base is made wider at the front, making it possible to adjust frame to the sides a bit more (by approximately additional 4 mm in each direction) – this makes adjusting skates to your anatomy and skating style easier.
Upper part has been completely remodelled. Not only it has been given a 90’s ‘kicks’ look, it is also made out of more durable and rigid materials, thanks to which boot holds your feet firmly in place and is more supportive. Use of Recall memory foams is another novelty – up to now, these were found only in higher end fitness and freeskate models. Thanks to these, inside of the boot quickly adapts to skater’s anatomy and remembers the shape. The heel area has been completely remodelled to ensure that foot will be locked in place. Insole is made out of EVA foam, adjusting to user’s foot and providing superb comfort.
When it comes to frame and wheels, we are looking at evolution rather than evolution. The frame is still casted out of ADC10 aluminium, but production process is altered – the frames are now given finishing touch on CNC machine to get rid of excess of material and give them cleaner look. Most recent version of Infinity wheels have adjusted urethane compound, making them more resistant and longer lasting. Skates come with HABS – Height Adjustable Brake System, which allows you to adjust the rubber distance from the ground as it wears to ensure consistent braking position. Of course, as Argon skates are also targeted at advanced skaters who would rather take off the brake, an additional axle allowing you to do just that comes in the box.
It can be safely said that over all these years, Powerslide polished X-Shell template skates to perfection. New Phuzion Argon models are no revolution compared to previous skates in this line, but have been improved in so many areas and packed with features making them one of best (if not the best) value offerings in their price range. These are safe recommendation to everyone who’s looking for long lasting, comfortable and highly performing fitness skates.
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.
