10 Reasons to Powerblade.
Powerblading is an intense source of adrenaline. The speed, split second decisions combined with tricks keeps the skater constantly stimulated. With the streets and its architecture at your fingertips the adventure is endless and the feeling of leaving pedestrians, bikes and traffic in the dust as you breeze past is a constant rush.
With Powerblading being developed for the first time by previously aggressive exclusive brands, products are genre specific and advanced, allowing for more opportunities than ever before. This leaves a great chance for exciting new faces on the skate scene as well as huge opportunities to invent new tricks and variations – Powerblading is a blank canvas!
Travelling around your city on skates can lead you into some very interesting corners. Stimulate your body and mind while you go from A to B.
4. No age restriction
A lifetime of aggressive skating can take a painfully toll on your body. Powerblading can be as dangerous and exciting as you wish, while at the same time being more about invention and quick decisions than self harm. As long as you’re a strong skater, there’s no reason why you can’t power around a city whatever your age – the risk of injury is lower than that of aggressive skating but the adrenaline remains just as high, caused by a different sensation than that of “fear”.
As you move around a city, you will find yourself searching for ideas. You will find your mind racing with ways of using the architecture, banks, stairs keeping you constantly stimulated and mentally active which will also help you in your day to day life.

9. Existing Installations
Where aggressive skating hungers for skateparks and that perfect rail or ledge, Powerblading is more about passing through an area, or using unusual elements on the streets. In this way instead of being limited to a skatepark or a definite obstacle, part of the challenge is in using what you have around you to create something – the challenge is to use what you have!
Powerblading adheres to UFS. With the simple changing of 2 screws you can switch frames to aggressive or any other style of skating that works with UFS. Powerblading in no way limits you through hardware, and can either be your total focus or an optional power-up for your current setup, keeping the costs down as your current aggressive setup is a perfect vehicle for Powerblading.
