What is Trinity?
Trinity is a new pat. pending asymmetrical 3-point mounting system for skates. This has been achieved by shifting the two front mounting points to the outside of the frame forming a channel for the wheels.
With bigger wheels the skate became higher and more instable. The Trinity mounting now allows us to reduce the center of gravity of the skate drastically by about 10mm compared to common skates with a standard mounting system in the same wheel size.
Benefits of the Trinity concept are:
-Better Power Transfer - because of the power triangle formed by the 3 mounting points
-Stronger - because the forces are spread over 3 mounting points
-More Control - due to the strong 3-point connection of boot and frame
-Easier Skating - the power triangle also helps you with weight transfer
-Lower Center of Gravity – means more control and safer skating
-X-Slot mounting to customize the frame position under your boots
-Fatigue Control – significant reduction of vibration avoids exhaustion of muscles
Trinity is a new milestone in skating providing an unmatched and all new skating experience!
The Trinity composite shell is not symmetric as most of the shells you can find on our skates. Our shell is perfectly shaped and anatomically built for left and right feet in order to create a better fit and performance.
The shell is made out of a special nylon composite with fiberglass mixed into the material. This makes the shell strong and supportive. The bottom of the shell is ventilated and incorporates the X-design to guarantee torsion stiffness and perfect power transfer in every stride.
The cuff is light and very supportive giving you perfect lateral support. It is made out of a special nylon composite with added fibreglass to make it strong and supportive. The asymmetrical shape of the cuff, which fits perfectly to the shell, adds further strength to the construction. The buckle is a clean and stylish fast lock buckle system.
The padding for Kaze skates was designed with support and comfort as the main objective -and you can tell! These skates make you feel good from the first moment you put them on. A combination of various layers of high end foam materials with different thicknesses and densities provides comfort on one side, but a supportive fit on the other side. We have designed a skate which will keep its shape over time and not let you down! Our padding construction is 3-D shaped and anatomically placed in the boot to ensure a nice fit and perfect heel lock.
Upper & Lacing
The upper of the Kaze skate is made of nylon webbing including internal reinforcements and PU Nano leather applications. This combination offers a nice wrap around and snug fit on one side, but also good support as you need for a high speed performance skate like this. The tongue is anatomically pre-shaped. You will like the comfortable fit from the first moment you step into the skate. The Kaze comes with regular waxed laces which tighten your boot effectively. The ratchet buckle locks your heel in place for a perfect power transfer.
The pat pending Powerslide Trinity aluminium frame is a top of the line frame made of high end 6061 aircraft aluminium. It 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 very well balanced and super stiff thanks to its special 3-point mounting construction and general distribution of the forces through 3 mounting points. The frame scores with superior finish. It’s equipped with 8mm single axles incl. T25 torx head made of 7075 aluminium.
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 spot according to your skating style and preferences. This special feature is unique in the FSK skate category! Powerslide is the ONLY skate brand that offers the skater the possibility to adjust the position of his frame fitting the personal preferences and skating skills!
The 6 ¼” air tires come with a 5 spoke rim. The rubber outer jacket is reinforced with Vectran fibers adding strength to the jacket. The tire has an off road profile for better grip. The tires are inflatable up to maximum 6,3bar / 90 psi. They provide a comfortable ride by absorbing most impacts. These 150mm size wheels have a wide profile and roll smoothly on uneven ground and are perfect for off and on road skating.
WICKED (WCD) is a new high end bearing brand specialized for all kinds of rollsport.
