This isn’t the first frame like this of its kind, what are some of you talking about. I mean this looks to be refined but i mean there have been a few good ones. Kizer and some others.. The kizers’ block was set in a bit from the outer part of the frame, that wasn’t so great
Going from flat to anti-rocker is terrible, its light night and day.
Obviously there is benefit to having grind wheels or none at all
Remember the Kizer Elemnt frames, are they still around ?
The Powerblading term originated with the Vine Street guys in Sydney Australia. A few of them work for a local skate shop and would borrow rental rec skates. This spread around as Richie Eisler also lived in Sydney. Then he moved to Barcelona and started really pushing it. Richie and the Barcelona crew are the reason “Powerblading” has become a brand in itself. It was completely his idea to create the frames, UC wheels, and push it as a fun frame swapping way to cruise around the city. Don’t like Powerblading? Don’t buy it. But people like it. And don’t blame Oli Benet, blame Richie Eisler for being a rad cunt and basically a marketing genius.
just so you no its nothing like a kaltik frame its got different and more exciting possibilities the owners of bake would never want to step on any other companies toes and this product does not you’ll see come feb 20013
To the everyone that is complaining… What are you so mad about?
It’s rollerblading, IT’S FUN, it’s STILL aggressive, there’s more choices for wheel sizes now.
It doesn’t look like a kaltik, if anything it looks like Tom Hysers epoc frame
that never came out lol.
And when you’re skating fast enough rocks/pebbles don’t get caught in your
wheels as easily or you should scan the ground while blading so you don’t trip
on that shit. So anyway…
WTF IS THE BIG DEAL!?!?!?!
I think it’s fucking gnarly awesome! You all should be stoked!
you NOOBS complaining don’t know what you are talking about as if this is something radical. It looks to be a nice frame. I’m sure allot of you haven’t ridden flat for long, just so much more control. Doesn’t have to be powerblading. I”ve been doing it since my Aragon Oxygens
If you look, the Kaltik fram has a HARD GROOVE UNLIKE these frames. You can tell that its different. Its actually better in this situation because you will hit the grind faster.
Im’ not like sticking up for this company, i’m just pointing out obvious things.
It DOESNT necessarily have to be for powerblading.
Althoughwith this frame, powerblading ends up just being aggressive skating because they can actually do all the tricks ( for the most part)
This doesn’t have to be about powerblading, riding flat is nothing new.
The wheel size doesn’t need to be that big !
I absolutely hate powerblading because to me its but these frames look great.
Riding flat is way better than anti-rocker.
I use to ride flat woth OXYGEN Aragon Skates.. shit aint new
