Powerslide has launched the Skeleton 2 in 2015. It is based in the two ancestors Skeleton I and Skeleton Lite. All in all the Skeleton Lite had more influence on the Skeleton 2, which for example can be seen on the velcro straps of the shoe binding. The concept is to give the cross skaters excellent stability with maximum comfort.
The Skeleton 2 is used with own shoes which makes it very variable to multiple cross skaters. Best shoes to use are some with a relatively hard and rather slender sole (street sneakers etc.). The binding gives you great stability and much comfort which is particularly welcome among beginners.
Like all Powerslide Nordic Cross Skates launched in 2015 the Skeleton 2 has the new patented brake installed on the right Cross Skate. The new Cuff Brake has a metal brake pad and is very strong. You can set it easily to an ideal position according to your skating style. You brake by moving the right skate forward. This automatically moves your calf back and triggers the brake.
