Hey everyone, I am Peter Michael. I was born in New Zealand and I am a multiple World Champion Inline Speedskating. I won eight titles at the world inline skating championships.
I am competing in ice speed skating since 2016 and would like to win an Olympic medal.
Thanks to my experience in inline, Cádomotus asked me to test their newest inline frames: the 6th generation dual box inline frame. Not a regular inline frame, because this is the first true inline racing frame that takes four 110mm or three 125mm wheels as well. I was anxious to try it, because I always was a fan of the stiffer frames. The dual box frames have no cross bridges, so would they be stiff enough?
Changing inline frames for a marathon
At Championships (or Europacups) we skate on 110mm wheels for the track and 125mm for road races. Every time I wanted to change wheels from 110mm to 125mm I had to change my frame. This bothered me as I like my frame to be in the exact same position every time. For a while, I had two sets of skates going with both setups. But this started to become a problem when traveling. Sometimes I can only carry hand luggage or take just one piece of luggage with max 23kg
I was initially scared to try the dualbox-6 because of the extra holes on the side to mount the wheels. I thought this would weaken and make the frame more flexible. But it has been a very good decision to use it as the frame is as stiff as any with the technology of the Dualbox®.
Dualbox frames keep their stiffness
Now by using the dualbox-6 I have access to my 125mm or my 110mm with the stiffness that I like in my frames. It has meant I can now focus more on the actual skating and not having to worry about changing my frame set up every session I change wheels because it's not exactly on the same mark. I have tried and test the dualbox-6 under all conditions but for you to really understand how good the dream is I suggest you go and pick one up for yourself. You will directly start to benefit.
