Interesting!

It's even got a front suspension. I can't seem to find that particular skate from the link or a web search, although other Powerslide skates seem to be available from Europe.

I wonder if they come in size 48?

:?

Size 46 max, of course. i need 48 too.

I like the front rocker, as my dream offroad rollerski's will feature those as well, front and back, with larger wheels. Just then the boots in between the wheel to not sit that tall.

Not to be found on the Powerslide website (anymore?). Perhaps it didn't work out, or the public didn't want to try it?
I can see how a crossover between the Powerslide Nordic/Cross Trainer and the above could be better, though a bit heavier. Large wheels on the ends, each mated with the rocker mount to a smaller wheel that's placed under the boot. Some small bump suspension and better roll-over without energy loss, and some greater fore-aft stability than regular 4-wheel blades, further improving roll-over with greater bumps.
