V2 Rollerski Composite Skate XLC98
The composite shaft for the roller skis is made with four different materials. All have exceptional vibration damping properties, and three of the materials provide high strength and fatigue resistance. The foundation for the XLC is a precision lightweight core that is wrapped with several layers of unidirectional fibers with tensile strength equal to carbon fibers, but with better vibration damping properties. We chose Kevlar™ for the biaxial sleeve due to its superior tensile strength and tenacity. The epoxy we use to bond the fibers to each other and to the core is 3X stronger than conventional epoxy. The Kevlar™ is protected from UV degradation by a 0.25 mm thick polymer applied over the fibers and UV resistant epoxy.
The four XLC98 models are identical except for wheel speed. The XLC98F is fast, The XLCM is medium, the XLC98MS is medium slow and the XLC98S is slow. The rolling resistance of the slow wheels is increased using our patented ISR (internal speed reducer) that weighs only 10 grams. The wheel forks, with the built-in fenders, use the same strong Du Pont™ composite material that we have employed on the V2-900 and V2-800 series for many years.
