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.
Peace – Mathieu Ledoux.

Guess we’re supposed to change the world… Come on, I want to show you something…
Inspired by my TRON setup from last winter: it’s The Barcelona Sessions III – Another window into our world. Just like the original Barcelona Sessions, or is it? If you are looking for more foot maneuvers and switch-ups, this game is not for you. There is more to blading than Five True Zoos.
It all began with 80mm race wheels to get around. Next came the birth of the new Powerblading lines from Kizer and Undercover. Add never-ending hills and perfect Barcelona concrete… before long we were cruising faster than cars on a regular basis.
“On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy.” – Once comfortable with the speeds, naturally, we befriended the machines. We got in.

Three days of skating around Barcelona Spain, with the Xsjado Stockwell 4′s & Kizer Advance frames. The frames are now available, so go get yourself a set for Christmas.

Powerblading Setup by Oli Benet
Quoting Oli Benet:
I have been thinking about this setup for so long. I have had a pair of black Xsjados stored under my bed, unopened, just waiting for weeks for the Kizer Advance frames to arrive.
When I finally opened the box I found that they weren’t as black as I thought, but I think the setup still looks pretty sleek.
Kizer Advance and Arrow are out now, with 2 weeks or so to go until the Powerblading wheels from UC come out. Now if only I could get good at Fishbrains.

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.

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.
