Mathieu Ledoux: Arizona Sessions

Mathieu Ledoux: Arizona Sessions

Powerblading goes along with pureblading. The first day on my powerblade set-up felt like home right away.

I truly feel like every blader out there should have a powerblade set-up in order to enjoy skating at is fullest. I felt a new kind of freedom with them.

I relearned to enjoy skating itself. Just the feeling of rolling around became fun again.

I had only 5 days with them for this Edit but I know that there are so many things that can be done with these bad boys on. Welcome to this place where the word “Rolling” finds its meaning.

PeaceMathieu Ledoux.

    @gregS – do the conference not provide enough powerblading edits for you to believe yet…….?

    if you missed it here are a few links to other blading edits.


    Mathieu is amazing! Love the creativity. One of the best edits I have ever seen from him.

  • Joey

    You are the most innovative skater in 20 years I’ve ever seen. You are incredible. Keep skating, the world needs to see more.

  • Gazmos

    I think there were a few tricks do on here that would be difficult if not impossible on regular frames. That long ass wall ride to gap he did in the ditch and the back flip ceiling tap cess slide were made possible by the power blades. And that’s just 5 days of skating a new setup, I think ML will have tons of new tricks made possible by powerblades in the not to distant future.

  • Rob

    ^ This.. Some tricks could only been done with Powerblade setup! First tricks too, by the way.. I can bet exit speed from those banks would be 2x slower and height of your 180 would be 3x lower than Ledoux’es 540. And if you wanted to see ONLY tricks that can be done on Powerblades, then don’t expect it from 5 days filming edit.

    Most of you don’t care, don’t use brain to think.. I would really want to punch you between your eyes for such hate on one of the best rollerbladers to watch out there. Commercial for Powerblades??? Haha.. your skates which you ride are one BIG commercial. And every PRO or FLOW edit, dvd is commercial for someone. You must be sooooo uneducated, roller-hater or just bunch of teenagers to think it that way.

    Now buy a pair of freeskates, or Powerblades and those words from Mathieu Ledoux will shatter in your ear like world of truth.

  • b-dog

    the most refreshing skater out there at the moment

  • commenda

    does he not skate for shima manufracture…?

    so well, usd…
    fuck off, he’s simply brilliant!

  • T B

    good stuff! too bad there was no section of him in the FESTER video…

  • uribe

    If Mathieu was a skateboarder, he would be a top pro already. They could make a whole film of him only and i would buy it. More support for him!!! Best skating in years


    Haha I won’t buy powerblading set anyway! Edit is nice but Powerblading is Kizer’s biggest mistake ;]

    Can’t wait for his section. He’s an unbelievable talent. Fitness level is through the goddamn roof.

  • k?8OUGp^k)g=lgd

    wondering if those frames are solid. i want to see results with tests.

    Are those frames ok on xsjado?

    mathieu ledoux is amazing.

    I want to be a ninja too !

  • E. Subira

    I know it since I saw an edit of him for the first time, LEDOUX for president!
    FRESH AIR! Evolution! open minded!

    sorry his old skatin was much more inpressiv to me! i mean the stuff we saw some years ago! that now looks 4 me like rollerdancin !
    his skatin is very cool but it brings me to tears when i watch an old edit of him ! 4 example



  • RoryRewinds

    i dont get it . their like normal skates but you can do less. im not buying when you do all this and more in a pair of anarchys. not disrespect to mathiou hes the boss when it comes down to skating style but its pointless

  • Anonymous

    ^^^do you have a problem? relax

  • Anonymous

    What can’t be put across in the edit is the comfort riding on that powerblade/rec setup gives. I can ride down stairs on anti-rocker, but it sure as hell isn’t gonna feel as nice as a full set of oversized, soft wheels.

    Someone also mentioned the speed/pop difference they no doubt bring. The pleasure derived from effortlessly getting up to speed (opposed to flat-rocker, harder setups) is another thing. I think we’ll see a lot more people doing big gaps.

  • SoK

    I dont really ‘get’ ‘powerblading. I can understand how fun it would be if you lived in Barcalona/LA or something, but when you live in dismall England its not possible.

    I would totally smash powerblading if i lived in BCN though.

    SICK edit!

    Well, i definitely like buy some pair of powerblading frames, but, not for stunts. I agree with other comments, most of this tricks can be done with regular flat setups. I think that powerblades are better for “cruise”, or make some cardio trainnings. I like to just put my carbons and skate around for cardio trainings, and the powerblading are perfect to do that.
    Mathieu you are a ninja, dude! I love your edits, have an impressive and original style!

  • MagicalTramp

    Latimer would approve

  • Rol

    Looks like we’re back in ’96 … Berk .I hate it

  • RasmusM

    Amazing ! So fresh you can here the popping sound.

    Brings back memories to see those spots as well

  • fact

    am i the only one who can see this is absolute shit?

  • Edd

    oh what shaolin monks do when they strap on skates!

  • Dude.

    I don’t know why rollerbladers feel the need to categorize everything. You have stunt bladers, power bladers, mushroom bladers. It’s all the bloody same, we really don’t need all these terms. It stifles creativity and creates divisions that don’t need to exist.

  • suck it

    do a royale on them down a kink.

    show me their ‘power’ on a fast slide.

    ‘power’ bomb the ground teeth first.

    this is the future.

    this is the mustard.

  • ian wilson

    doid, that was fackin sick. this doid is bonkers
