These are the Imperial Supercruiser Pro skates. They retail for around $230 US. They come with three wheel Pleasure Tool frames, 110 mm wheels and ABEC 9 bearings. The liners are designed to grow with your foot, and can be heat molded for a perfect fit.
These are very my first set of triskates. Riding three big wheels keeps your wheel base shorter making the skates more maneuverable. A comparable wheelbase with four wheels would max out around 80mm. These Pleasure Tool frames also have the middle wheel shifted, which helps with turns and coasting.
Before skating for the first time, I heat molded the liners. This was an easy process using a home oven. Set the temperature to 180 degrees, and heat your liners for 8 minutes. After they’re nice and warm, reassemble your skates and tie them up tight. After 10 minutes the liners will be perfect.
I took them out in my neighborhood to get an feel for how they ride.
I wanted to see how fast they were compared to my old big wheel setup of 76mm/80mm wheels, so I took them to a nearby hill. The speed was pretty close, but it took longer for me to get going. The ride was much more comfortable though, less vibrations and longer coasting at the end.
I’ve skated around 50 miles so far with no noticeable issues. The wheels needed to be rotated after every 10 miles of skating, but that’s expected. The liners still feel great, though I did develop a blister on my inside ankle after a long 15 mile skate.
I can pretty much guarantee you’ll love these skates. They're the perfect balance of price and performance. The big wheels make skating long distances effortless and the lightweight design lets you skate further without getting tired. Triskates are super fun to ride, I look forward to skating the every chance I get.
