POWERSLIDE FSK Pleasure Tool Frame blue 2016
Aluminium alloys are alloys in which aluminium is the predominant metal. The typical alloying elements are copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon and zinc. The 6061 aircraft aluminium we use for the Pleasure Tool frame contains more magnesium and silizium which gives the material more elasticity which is easy to work with. It has less tensile strength than 7000 series aluminium; important for the strength and rigidity of the frames. The frame is also T6 heat treated.
The frame is very well balanced and super stiff. One unique feature of the frame is the variable space between the wheels. The second wheel was shifted a bit more backwards towards the third wheel as this frame was especially designed for speed slalom in order to give the frame more power and stability, because the skaters put more weight on the back of the frame in speedslalom. Sure this frame can also be used for regular skating. The Pleasure Tool frame is 246mm long fitting max. 3x 110mm wheels. The frame got his extraordinary look from the CNC milled edges including the perfect laser prints. A special detail are the scales along the side of the mounting slots, but also placed on front and rear to help the skater to adjust his frame-boot set up.
The Powerslide FSK Pleasure Tool frame blue features the 165mm mounting standard, so it fits onto the most boots on the market.
It comes with standard single axles with torx head featuring nice laser prints. The torx head has the advantage that the axles do not get round too easy compared with regular hex axles. 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 spot according to his skating style and preferences.
