Shell: Composite fiber
The shell of the Imperial Junior skate is made of composite material, which is reinforced with 15% fiberglass to make the shell strong and stiff. The base of the mounting blocks is big and wide which provides a large contact area between the frame and boot.
The cuff was designed with support in mind. It is made out of a special composite compound that is super stiff thanks to the 15% fiberglass, which was mixed into the material.
Liner: Fat Boy size growing
This skate is equipped with a “Fat Boy” stretch liner. As the name suggests the toe box of the liner is stretcheable and covers three sizes without putting pressure on your toes. This liner is a real masterpiece. The last was created by Sergio Mc Cargo, the No.1 shoemaker in the inline skating world. The liner is fully lasted. It has a perfect shape and fit, it wraps around your foot like a sock. The liner is light and also features a dual density innersole and a carrying strap.
Frame: PS Gamma 219mm AL
The Powerslide Gamma frame is made of 6063 aircraft aluminium and is based on a double voided construction. The extra ribs between the wheels increase the stiffness and help to lower the weight. The frame is basically a simplified Alpha frame. The frame therefore is also very stiff and very well balanced. The frame comes with hollow single axles made of steel. The combination of the across slot in the frame and the along slot in our boots is called the X-Slot Mounting. This system enables you to adjust the boot-frame setup without any dead spots according to your skating style and preferences.
Wheel: PS Spinner 72mm 85A
Powerslide Spinner wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that gives you everything you need – fast roll, good grip, long lifetime. The hub with the small dots is a very strong and durable construction. The 72mm setup is perfect to learn basic skating. Kids who prefer a rockered setup to lean the basics of freestyle slalom can mix 72mm wheels with 68mm wheels to create a “banana setup”.
Bearing: Wicked freespin ABEC 7
WICKED (WCD) is a new high end bearing brand specializing in all kinds of rollsport. WCD is made of the best available raw materials and crafted with high quality to guarantee a fast and smooth ride but also a long lifetime. WCD ABEC 7 Freespin balls have a very good and smooth freespin. The bearing contains 7 chrome steel bearings and a light weight but resistant nylon cage. One side is covered by a non contact rubber coated RZ shield. A synthetic oil from Japan is used for this high end bearing.
Closure: Power strap
The Imperial skate features flat laces which tighten well. A velcro power strap is placed at 45° to keep the heel in place and a standard buckle on top of the cuff provides a secure wrap.
