POWERSLIDE Metropolis 80 2017
The Metropolis 80 is a freeskate from POWERSLIDE with a classic hardboot that reminds the look of a strong and durable 90´s Inlineskate. It comes with a stiff aluminium frame and POWERSLIDE FSK Spinner 80mm/85A wheels. Because of the short construction of the frame you are very agile without loosing speed. The My Fit Liner is heat mouldable, very comfortable and includes a dual density innersole.
The shell of the Metropolis 80 Freeskate is made of composite material. We use fiberglass (15%) reinforced nylon material to make the shell strong and stiff. The base of the mounting blocks is big and wide which provides a large contact area between 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.
This skate is equipped with the “Fat Boy” standard liner. The 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, wraps around your foot like a sock. The liner can NOT be heatmoulded like his “MY FIT brother”. The general construction of both liners is the same and provides great comfort and support. The liner is light and hand washable. This liner also features a dual density innersole and a carrying strap and it comes with the new dual fit toe.
The Metropolis 80 Freeskate features thick round laces which are easy to grab. There are two buckles – one placed at 45° to keep the heel in place, the other one on top of the cuff for a secure wrap.
The Powerslide Spider frame is made of 6061 aircraft aluminium and is based on a single voided construction. The frame is basically a simplified Spider Pro frame which is well known in the FSK community. The frame therefore is also very stiff and very well balanced. The frame comes with 7075 aluminium single axles. 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.
POWERSLIDE FSK Spinner wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that give the inlineskater all they need - fast roll, good grip, long lifetime. The hub with the small dots is very strong and durable construction. The size of the hub is matched with the size of wheel needed.
WICKED ABEC 7 bearings have a great spin. The bearing contains 7 chrome steal bearings and a strong and resistant steel cage. A synthetic oil from Japan is used for this bearing.
