Default powerslde mega cruiser frame set

I have been inline skating for a while and just started learning about the 125 mm inline skates by Powerslide. They are all terrain? What is a Powerslide Megacruiser frame set? Could they be attach to a pair of inline skates that I bought at Dick's?

Most likely not. Depend on how your frame is mounted. If the frame on your skates resembles these riveted/bolted in place frames below, then no. Also, some/most aggressive skates are USD, and would also not compatible with the powerslide frame.

Standard inline wheels, no matter the size, are not all terrain. They are hard and unforgiving when it comes to softer surfaces and surfaces with a lot of obstacles, such as branches and roots.

For that, you need pneumatic tires and skates made especially for these types of wheels and frames. Something like the Powerslide Kaze:

Powerslide's megacruiser frame set is not an "off-road" or considered "all-terrain" frame (chuck posted above their off-road kaze skates).

Powerslide makes a number of larger 3-wheels frame sets, with both 3x110 and 3x125 configurations, great for urban, longer distance, trails, etc.



And, as noted in my comment above, if you have any of the skate configurations above, these frames will not fit low-end (fixed frame) rec/fitness skates, or usd skates. They will other skates with 165mm standard mount spacing.
