3-wheel skates combine dynamic rolling, agility and skating pleasure like no other skate, they are lighter, faster and lower. The different look and feel of 3-wheel skates is breathing new excitement into inline skating, and now, for the first time, skaters from different disciplines like fitness-, speed- or even free-skating enjoy the many advantages of rolling on 3 big wheels.
The Powerslide Imperial line of skates all share the same basic boot foundation with different sized wheels and frames. This gives you a choice to get your skates dialed in and fit to your own style of skating.
Shell: Composite fiber
The shell of the Imperial Supercruiser and Megacruiser skates are 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: MyFit Fat Boy Dual Fit
The Supercruiser and Megacruiser skates are equipped with the MyFit “Fat Boy” Dual liner. As the name suggests this new liner covers two sizes. Thanks to the stretchy material the toe part will expand by one size 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 can be heat molded at around 80° C in an oven or with a strong hair dryer in order to customize the fitting. The liner has a unique 3 layer padding consisting of heat moldable foams, EVA foam and additional 3-D foam in the ankle area for a perfect ankle and heel lock to increase support during every stride. Under the lining we added soft sponge foam for extra comfort and support. On the outside the padding is kept in shape with a special heat moldable thermo sheet. The liner is light and also features a dual density innersole and a carrying strap.
Closure: Ratchet buckle
The Imperial Supercruiser and Megacruiser skates features flat laces which tighten well. There are two different types of buckles – the “Universal Flap II” with a ratchet buckle placed at 45° to keep the heel in place and the standard buckle on top of the cuff for a secure wrap.
Powerslide Imperial Supercruiser Pro 110mm Skates
Knight rider on 3 wheels! Powerslide Imperial Supercruiser Pro 110 urban inline skates are designed for your city! Supportive hard shells & the stiff & indestructible 246mm Pleasure Tool frames are created for transportation & urban tricks, ensuring perfect control & power transfer. This commuter freeskate comes with a stylish dark design, a comfortable heat moldable MyFit liner, 3x110mm wheels & fast Wicked Abec 9 bearings.
Frame: PS Pleasure Tool 246mm AL
The Pleasure Tool Triskate frame is made by a double voided extrusion. It´s a “classic” style extrusion that offers enhanced stiffness due to the multilayer frame construction. The structure of the sidewalls and bridges as well as the tricky CNC milling of the frame enhances the stability and stiffness. The Pleasure Tool frame is very well balanced and super stiff. One unique feature of the frame is the variable space between the wheels. The second wheel was shifted backwards towards the third wheel as this frame was specially designed for speed slalom in order to give the frame more power and stability, because the skaters put more weight on the back of the frame in speed slalom. Of course this frame can also be used for regular skating. The Pleasure Tool frame is 246mm long fitting max. 3x 110mm wheels. The frame gets its extraordinary look from the CNC milled edges including the perfect laser prints. A special detail is the scales along the side of the mounting slots, these are also placed in the front and rear to help the skater to adjust his frame-boot set up. The Pleasure Tool frame features the 165mm mounting standard. It comes with standard single axles with torx head featuring nice laser prints. 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.
Wheels: PS Infinity 110mm 86A
This skate is equipped with Powerslide “Infinity” 110mm / 86A Super High Rebound performance wheels with a strong and unique 6-spoke core, the perfect shape and profile for an excellent push and stride. This wheel is based on the well known Powerslide “Infinity” wheel. A nice amount of PU over the core to take away shocks and vibrations of the roads, and thanks to the long lasting and Super High Rebound (SHR) Urethane these wheels are fast and grippy also at higher speed. The wheel offers overall superior performance.

Bearing: Wicked freespin ABEC 9
Same bearings as the 110mm model as well as many other USD and Powerslide skates. These Wicked Abec 9’s are comparable to some of the much more expensive bearings. They roll fast right from the start and last a good while. Perfect for any setup but especially nice for these big 3 wheel cruisers.
