Powerslide Off-Road Skating in Vancouver
Rather dodge trees than people while partaking in your weekly skating regimen? You’re in luck. Piggybacking on the tangent of core and extreme roller skating comes Powerslide’s SUV all-terrain skates. These off-road skates just recently made their way into the foray and are taking off in British Columbia. Vancouver to be exact. And from the embedded video it actually looks like a hell of a good time. Skater Dustin Werbeski makes the treacherous downhill trek and natural obstacle course look like adrenaline-fueled fun in this feature, shot within the forested trails of the Vancouver’s North Shore.
The brand, Powerslide, offers several similar offshoot products that take a more aggressive stance on everyday wheel-based products. The SUV all-terrain skates, featured here, are made of an aluminum frame and 125mm air tires that keep it durable and dirt friendly. Not a bad investment if you’re looking to one-up your typical outdoor hiker. Plus, since you can take these deep into the forest, you no longer have to worry about getting busted for blading by your friends.
