The shell of the Icon Junior boot is made by composite material. Fiberglass is used to reinforced nylon material to make the shell strong like a carbon fibre shell. The cuff area of this entry level skate is a little bit softer compared with a carbon fiber shell for more comfort. This shell is based on a skeleton. The ribs on the bottom help to build a light weight shell but also allows fresh air to flow into the boot for a better climate in the boot. The shell of the Icon Junior boot contents two parts, a main body and a toe cap which are connected to each other and which can be adjusted in size to grow with the feets of the kids. It was the first size adjustable kids skate that has been developed back in 2003.
Our PU nanoleather upper material is soft, but very strong and resistant. This outstanding material wraps around the foot like a sock. We use neoprene and microfiber materials for the inside lining for max. comfort. One special feature of the upper is the one piece construction. A common construction of kids adjustable skates is a two piece construction. You have a main body and can adjust the heel area or the toe area in length to adjust the sizes. The Icon Junior boot is made as one piece construction. The two parts of the boot are connected by stretchable SBR material. The fit of the skate is more tight and snug compared to regular 2 piece constructions.
The Powerslide X frame is a light weight, but rigid single voided frame made of 6061 aircraft aluminium. The frame is also very stiff due to its tricky CNC machinering. The frame offers the skater to chose between a 4x84mm or 3x100mm wheel set up. Single axles with torx head and nice graphics are already standard for this entry levcel frame as well. 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 the skater to adjust the boot-frame setup without any dead spots according to their skating style and preferences.
Powerslide Infinity wheels are Super High Rebound (SHR) wheels that give kids all they need - fast roll, good grip, and a long lifetime. The traditional 5 spoke hub is a light weight construction. The size of the hub is matched with the size of the wheel needed.
