Powerslide Vi Pro Carbon (Boot only)
ShellThe patent pending Vi-Concept it simple but effective: Clap ? Snap ? Wrap is how you do it. Open the flap, close it and tighten it by turning the disc knob. This will give you an completely new skating feeling, total control with perfect fit. 360° Lacing and the full wrap technology make it possible. The steel wire slips through the teflon tubes which are build not the shell. The shell is stiff and light with a sleek and narrow look and feel, while offering all the comfort you need.
The shell is the first and only speed shell that is not symmetric, but is perfectly shaped and anatomically built to the skaters feet.
The Vi-shell is here to take over. It is made out of 100% carbonfiber. This makes the shell strong and supportive. The Vi-shell also features a 195mm mounting with the Powerslide X-slot, which enables the skater to adjust the frame to the side and to the front and backwards, for the perfectly customized frame-boot position. "Vi" is not just an evolution ? Vi is a revolution.
UpperOur PU nanoleather upper material is soft, but very strong and resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. We also reduced the upper to the minimum in order to safe weight. Our new Waterdrop Suprafiber? (WDS) is an all new Microfiber that we use for the inside lining. The fibers are extra long to give more comfort and due to their hollow design they are also able to transport moisture away from the skin. The hollow fibers also create a micro air circulation, providing an extra cooling effect.
PaddingOur new 3D anatomical padding is placed strategically around the ankle and tendon area of the shoe to assure the most secure ankle and heel fit. The new Poron padding is not taking away space inside the shoe where you would need it, but fills up the empty spaces to give more comfort and control. Poron Urethans were originally designed for medical purposes to provide custom foam cushioning and comfort which is essential. We chose a slow recovery urethane for our racing shoes ? a unique custom contouring material. This material rebounds slowly when compressed, which results in a custom fit during each use. Features of Poron are:
- shock absorbing to protect against impacts
- breathable to keep feet dry and cool
- maintains cushioning for maximum performance
- lightweight and flecible for continuous comfort
This makes the boot more comfortable than any other boot.
