Default hi lo does it really help?

Hello all,

I am still looking for proper frame.
Now I a looking at Powerslide Triple X Frame 12.8, 195mm, 3x110 1x100


Does it really fits lower as claimed?
Also some noticeable performance vs 4x110?

Or it is just waste of money?

Thanks for help!

It's a pain in the @$$, since you have to purchase two different sized wheels. And if you like to rotate them regularly, like me, the only rotation you can do w/ the 100mm wheels are the 2nd position of both skates. This changes with a 2&2 setup (110-100-100-110).

Their pros are a slightly (maybe 1-2mm, depending on the frame) lower deck height and a slightly smaller overall length.

As for noticeable differences, I noticed a slightly better roll with the 4x110mm setups than with a hi-lo.

Thanks mate. Maybe I should try 2x110 2x100. As 3x110 1x100 like you said just minimum diffrences. I had many accidents by crossovers in corners with 4x110 ( sometimes I forget I skating on 4x110).

For me personally the gain in height was much more substantial than 1-2mm. On the hybrid 110/100 frame I was lower than on my previous 4x100mm (but that was a basis PS frame, so no good point of reference). I believe the gain in height is worth the hassle: it makes the transition to 110mm more gradual and allows for a more linear progression of technique. Rotating wheels is considered a bigger or smaller problem, depending on the person (small for me). I have not skated teh 4x110mm yet, so can't compare the roll or other characteristics.
