Specifically designed to be worn with your own shoes - Skorpion™ Multi Terrain Skates can be used on almost every surface from traditional skate bowls and pavements to BMX tracks, nature trails, boardwalks, grass and cobblestones.
Whether you are a thrill seeker wanting to skate along dirt tracks, a kite skater wanting to skim across the sand at speed, a skier wanting to stay in top form through the summer, or a nature lover wanting to explore your local trails and parks - these high performance skates will provide you with all the fun, look and performance of an off-road vehicle.
Skorpion Multi Terrain Skates feature easily adjustable footplates that fit almost any-sized shoe. They have the lowest center of gravity of any skate available, which makes them extremely stable and easy to balance on.
Skorpion Multi Terrain Skates provide the smoothest ride possible, even on rough terrain. The transition from one surface to another is effortless, and the rubber-sealed dual bearings in each wheel combined with Quadcoil suspension keeps rolling resistance and vibration to a minimum.
The footplates are manufactured from Du Pont’s latest Zytel® Super Tough Glass reinforced nylon to provide ultimate off-road strength. The Zytel provides increased rigidity, tensile strength, and low temperature impact strength that you can confidently rely on. Unlike most other engineering thermoplastics, super tough Zytel is insensitive to notching and can therefore take a lot of punishment and still stay in one piece. Scratches do not concentrate stress and do not become weak points. The footplates will retain their toughness and do not become brittle at low temperatures. A soft inner sole has also been included in the footplate to maximize skater comfort.
Detachable non-marking rubber brakes are fitted to the rear of one skate. The brakes can be transferred from one foot to the other to suit the preference of the skater, and can be easily replaced when worn. The brakes are fastened by a bolt that screws into a threaded metal sleeve in the axle mount.
The axle assembly combines an 8mm steel axle shaft encapsulated by Glass Filled Nylon, which provides:
- Strength and stiffness
- The geometry required to allow the axle to pivot and provide steering action to each skate
- The hard surface tolerance fit required to support the high performance bearings
The design and calculated placement of the axle under the front and rear footplates through the axle mount pivot transfers the load and weight of the skater down and out to each of the 115mm wheels. This allows the skater to easily turn and negotiate terrain.
Suspension And Steerage Design
Our patented Quadcoil spring suspension and steering system utilizes zinc dichromate coated high carbon compression springs positioned close to each wheel to reduce vibration, provide positive responsive control when turning, and relative comfort when skating on uneven or rough terrain. The suspension combined with the wide footprint of the skates improves stability while the skater is both mobile and stationery, and helps ensure a fun and enjoyable skating experience.
Wheels and Hubs
The geometry of the reinforced hub follows the contemporary automotive style of an open 5-spoke mag wheel and low profile tires.
The lightweight wheels are manufactured from a durable Thermoprene polymer formulation that includes a natural rubber component that enhances off road performance by providing traction when cornering and absorbing shock.
Each wheel is fitted with two rubber-sealed Abec5 bearings to minimize drag, reduce rolling resistance, and provide lateral strength and speed to burn.
Strap And Buckle Design
The front and rear padded straps are manufactured from a strong and durable Polyeurethane elastomer to provide positive fastening, withstand shock and creep resistance, and reduce wear on the ‘teeth’ of the ladder strap.
The convenient, rigid strap and buckle ratchet system provides positive holding power and allows skaters to fasten the skates to their footwear quickly and effortlessly - and just strap on and go!
The revolutionary tectonic adjustable footplate design enables Skorpion Multi Terrain Skates to be easily adjusted to fit almost any-sized shoe.
