The Ground Control BIG Powerblade frames are in and mean business. The BIG frame carries a lot of similarities in shape and finish to its little brother the Featherlite, but this is where the similarities end. The Big is top dawg in the GC line up and designed to carry a full flat set-up of 72mm wheels enabling you to keep your speed more efficiently and roll smoother then ever before. What else is new?. The GC Big has the best groove we have seen on any powerblading frame. It is nice and wide with wheel protecting flanges on each side to eliminate wheel bite when you're grinding, which has already proved to really work really well for other flat

The Ground Control BIG Powerblade frames are in and mean business. The BIG frame carries a lot of similarities in shape and finish to its little brother the Featherlite, but this is where the similarities end. The Big is top dawg in the GC line up and designed to carry a full flat set-up of 72mm wheels enabling you to keep your speed more efficiently and roll smoother then ever before. What else is new?. The GC Big has the best groove we have seen on any powerblading frame. It is nice and wide with wheel protecting flanges on each side to eliminate wheel bite when you're grinding, which has already proved to really work really well for other flat frame manufacturers Bake and Kaltik. The frame is a single piece mould with grooved non-contact points of frames to get rid of any unnecessary weight. The time and effort put into the design really shines through when you hold it in your hand, each wheel is perfectly aligned to be within a couple of millimeters of contact with the underside of the boot. The proof is in the pudding, with the likes of Alex Burston and Scott Quinn grinding on these with ease without sticking-up, even on the most precise grind tricks. We can't wait to see how the GC BIG pushes the next generation of 'Big-wheeled' skaters on the streets.

Specs:

  • Metal frame spacers (like FLT 3)
  • One size fits all (UFS)
  • Individual frame weight 0.32kg (only 0.07kgs heavier then a FLT 3)


Compatibility issues:

While the GC big frame is recognised as one of the best new products of 2014, it's built very 'close fitting'. Please note the following compatibility anomalies and their 'work-arounds':

Razor SL - The frame mounts on the Razor SL skates are slightly too long for this frame. You'll need to 'shave the nipples' before you attach them [instructions for this included with the frames]. Coincidentally the BIG frame works extremely well with the SL boot once you've done this, due to it's low, baseless design.

Razor Cult - There is a lip at the back of the Razor Cult soul kits which will rub on your rear wheel when used with BIG frames and 72mm wheels. You'd have to saw/sand/dremel about half a cm off that lip to fit these frames to a Cult boot, sorry!

Wheel-rub - The BIG frames are built to be as close to the boot as possible so they are low riding (that's a good thing). However if you use them with certain wheels which are not perfectly precise in their measurements (ie some companies might sell a 72mm which is infact 72.5mm) then you may experience some 'wheel-rub' on the underside of your boot. This is usually fixed by skating down a big hill! (it will weardown the wheel a few fractions of a milimeter so that it can start to spin freely).
