Default 125mm ~76a wheels?

Hi,

I've got Powerslide Imperial Megacruiser Pro 125mm skates and have been skating outside.

I've started to practice a little bit of slalom indoors and have been recommended softer wheels, however am unable to find anything softer than the 82AA Powerslide Fothom Wheels.

Does anyone know of any 125mm or 110mm wheels?
If they don't exist, could someone recommend frames for slalom for 3 or 4 wheels that can mount to the Megacruiser's boot?

Would appreciate any help!

Usually the biggest wheel for cone skating is an 80mm. Not many people skate with 110 or 125 wheels through cones. I've seen it done however.

Personally here's what I would do. Powerslide frames are easy to change. Here's a link

https://www.inlinewarehouse.com/Powe...-PSFRAMES.html

Go for a frame that uses four wheels. Inline warehouse is pretty knowledgeable. ask if the frame would be compatible with your skate. I believe most Powerslide frames are compatible with most Powerslide models.

Here's the wheels that are good...

https://www.inlinewarehouse.com/Powe...e-POWERWH.html

You'll find plenty of 82A softness wheels here. Biggest I'd go is 80mm wheel.
Do you know about rockering your wheel? I believe that Powerslide frames come pre-rockered. Check with Inline Warehouse. If you have any questions about rockered vs non rockered frame, feel free to ask.

EDIT...Oh sorry, I thought you wanted 82A, now I see you wanted softer, my bad. There should be plenty of softer wheels at that link too. No probs.

Thanks for your reply,

I checked out the site you linked as well as some others. It seems the only pre-rockered Powerslide frame is the Katana Pro which uses the Trinity mounting system whereas the Megacruiser has a two point mounting system (X-Slot I think?) so I won't be able to get a pre-rockered frame.

And yeah for in-door slalom I'd have to go small wheels if I want softer wheels since you can't get 100+ wheels which are soft, at least not that I can find.

Maybe in the future I'll pick up a Powerslide with the rockered frame and test it.

Cheers!

You can get 80mm labeda shooters for pretty cheap, they are 78a if you are above 160 lbs. I run this indoor, almost impossible to lose grip.
