Clip 53: Acrobat Skater Mathias von Gostomski. Mark Heuss shot this video of Mathias von Gostomski performing his skating stunts in the urban obstacle courses of Berlin, Munich and the Ruhr, in his home country Germany and abroad in Barcelona and California.
Featuring Richie Eisler, Dustin Werbeski and Worapoj Boonnim “Note” as they cruise through Barcelona on a collection of Kizer’s new frames including the brand new Powerblading collection.
Kizer has been at the forefront of frame technology since its very first aftermarket UFS frames back in 1999. Through the years it has never ceased to innovate and create brand new concepts not only in frames but also in hardware. In 2011 Kizer takes a giant leap in innovation once more.
We find that the current state of frame technology is far from ideal. Skaters buy a frame which is “ok” for most types of skating and modify it to get as close to what they want as they can. At Kizer we felt it was our duty to do something about this situation. We decided to make the perfect frames exclusively for Freestyle skating, Anti-Rocker skating and for Flat setups.
In effect, The Kizer 2011 project can be defined as us taking all the best elements of our previous years’ collections and perfecting each frame for a specific style of skating – but that is not all;
Kizer has taken the biggest step in innovation to happen in years in our sport. Fully supporting the new evolution of inline it has created 2 brand new Powerblading frame models, therefore becoming the first frame company to offer enhanced Freeskate/Urban frames designed to withstand the Power of an aggressive skater, one of the most exciting evolutions of the sport in recent years.
We are proud to present our brand new and entirely modified frame collection for 2011.
Kizer – Everyone’s Framed.
Powerblading Frames: Arrow PB
Combining a strong, lightweight aluminium frame with a fluid plastic grindwall allows for the fastest ride ever to be combined with grinding.
Speed has always been limited on aggressive setups until now. Finally skaters can triple their speed and flow while still being able to grind. Powerblading opens up new terrains and possibilities for the aggressive skater. Max Wheel size 80mm ; UFS, UFS – One size.
The Kizer Advance is the Powerblading Fluid. Simplicity and speed is the key to this frame. The worlds strongest Freeskate frame made from Kizer Fluid material it is designed to take aggressive skating into the future.
Shorter than current fitness and freeskate frames the Kizer Advance allows for incredible control and maneuverability. Max Wheel size 80mm ; UFS, One size.
All of these faces have been filmed at Winterclash in february 2011. These times, it was a less personal and more or less wider approach on who to film.
Some friends, some strangers, some blading stars (welcome to the King of Kong), some of my teenage heroes and some others.
