The 3x125 DualBox® V: Innovation never sleeps.
The DualBox® V is PHE: performance-enhancing equipment. This is the frame that's re-defined the future of the sport, incorporating years of desire for light-weight frames with structural strength and in-the-field responsiveness. The DualBox® V puts top-end performance within every skaters grasp. The unique characteristics of the DualBox® design deliver more command and control than any other frame today:
- more stability - even force distribution
- less muscle fatigue - vibration mitigation
- more control - predictable responsiveness
The value of intelligent design comes into play when you're fully loaded over your skate, and confident that you've got the support you need to push to your limit. The innovation brought to this frame is best felt when skating at top-speed on less than ideal road or track conditions. Turn any piece of rough asphalt into a sheet of glass. It's a frame that absorbs the vibration of uneven surfaces and returns more power per stride and any other frame you've skated before. It's lightweight enough to give your stride and push more freedom, and stiff enough to maintain control of, never getting away from you.
The DualBox® V is a lean frame that exposes more wheel, carved from a single piece of aluminum that delivers consistent power transfer, stiffness and flexibility. With each push you enjoy greater energy return, driving you forward with extra speed that you didn't have to work hard for. In this way, it's the only frame that gives back beyond the level of your investment, making every push profitable. The power flow you'll feel from the DualBox® V, through your wheels and into the skating surface is unlike anything you've experienced before.
A true practical study in design excellence, the DualBox® V is unlike any DualBox that has come before it. It's next generation equipment for next-level performance, powered by the industry-leader in break-through inline speed skating technology. In the DualBox® V, you’ve got the best minds in the sport under your feet, powering your stride, giving you the competitive edge that is the Speed of Intelligent Motion.

GerdWon 3/25/2017Rolling these frames, one can't miss their VERY confiding behaviour. Before buying a 125 mm frame, I tested the waters with a modified predecessor. The dualbox technologie has been maintained over the years; yet the properties of this new edition are well worth: I had not used the dualbox5 4x110 version, which I had in dualbox4 but later I adopted a HiLo dualbox4.
At first thoughts, the unprecedented total length in this new 3x125 configuration fed a nasty bias. It was exciting therefore, to find framelength instead, to be the more critical: 12.8'' fits perfect.
Some (2) of the competing brands appeal to me by interesting materials and construction but after lurking and sniffing around, I was even more intrigued to experience the obvious innovations in the dualbox 5. They offer just aestatics and the differently proportioned tubes and total new arrangement of connecting links are truely a new 5th version.
Oh yes I am pleased!
Hestkjaeron 8/16/2016Nice stiff frame for 125mm wheels, Feels good, not too short, or long. Makes it feel easy to control. Stiff frames can sometimes feel "dead" but in a combination with 125s it's different, due to larger diameter, the wheel is often more flexible, and a good combination with BM 125mm.
