Chaya Roller Derby Skates - Emerald Hard
CHAYA is a pure roller derby and rollerskate brand from POWERSLIDE. They have been working for over three years to perfect their product line and to make sure they introduce a unique design which does not compare with any other brand on the market.
CHAYA's image is clean, pure, and only focused on what is needed for boots and plates. Fully functional product with great design and style combining function and fashion.
The Emerald offers a breathable boot with added comfort and a super smooth skating feeling. The extra smooth, feather light Power Knit textile upper wraps your foot like a second skin. The Emerald re-defines comfort and its look and specialized materials set new standards. This sporty, sophisticated skate is a slender fit and has the added advantage of being super light-weight.
The Chaya Emerald low cut boot is very light-weight and comfortable. The sporty look is emphasized by the Power Knit upper, a high tech knitted textile, which is characterized by its durability and low weight. Furthermore it can be laced perfectly and wraps your foot like a second skin. The toe area is protected by a layer of PU-leather material. The hard composite outsole provides a good power transfer.
The plate is made of a fibreglass reinforced nylon composite material, which makes the plate extra stiff and responsive and provides a smooth ride. The king pin and axles are made of steel while the cushions are made of high quality PU for easy turns and skating pleasure.
This plate features the Power Toe System (PTS) for better performance, more power, speed and control. The front of the plate is raised and angled closer to the natural bend of the out sole. This ensures that the muscles of the feet are pre-tensioned, which makes it easier to push the skates.
The replaceable toe stopper is placed off set towards the inside of the plate to follow the anatomical and natural movement when a skater wants to stop or is walking on the toe stopper. The stopper itself is made of long lasting natural rubber material, which provides great performance.
The “Octo Edge” wheels of the Chaya roller skates are made of SHR PU-material. With a classic roller derby size of 59mm x 38mm and a hardness of 92A the wheels provide a great rolling performance with the right amount of slide to perfect your stops. They are perfect for your inoor rolling activities.
