How to convert inline skates to ice skates - Buying Guide

Why not take the opportunity to use them all year round by converting them into ice skates? Because being passionate about inline skating means eating it all year round!
At Solo Inline, we have several options to convert your inline skates into ice skates. The first option is to opt for a frame and an ice blade, if the frame of your skates is screwed on and corresponds to the models offered below, for example a Powerslide skate or an aggressive skate. The other option is to simply remove your wheels and swap them out for an ice blade with a conversion kit.
Use this guide to learn more and choose the best option to enjoy the winter and continue to polish your tricks, keep fit or just have fun on the ice! Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Our frames and ice blades for inline skates
Micro cold frame
The Micro-designed cold frame conversion kit contains a frame, that is, an aluminum blade holder and a pre-sharpened stainless steel ice blade. The frame attaches to the boot of the skate with two screws. This is the best option for freestyle type skates and the kit is compatible with all inline skates with a 165mm mount.
Powerslide Trident Trinity ice frame
Swap out your Powerslide ice blade wheel setup in minutes. The Powerslide Trident Trinity frame is compatible with any three-point Powerslide Trinity mount, such as the Next, Swell, Evo and Tau models. This even includes Reign hockey skates, so you can use the same boot for your roller hockey or ice hockey league! Simply unscrew the 3 screws on your Powerslide inline skate and use the same locations for the Trident frame and ice blade.
The frame is made of aluminum and the ice cream blade of stainless steel, for a total weight of around 300g, making it a light weight, yet very robust system. The pre-sharpened blade is available in 4 lengths, depending on the size of your skate. The size is only associated with the length of the blade and has no effect on the fitment. The ice blade is stable and has a radius for easy turning and maneuvering. It is suitable for long distances, freestyle events, hockey or just for playing outside. Note that this kit is not compatible with aggressive inline skates.
Rollance UFS ice frame and blade
Rollance produces UFS frames for ice skating, specially adapted for aggressive inline skates. The Rollance UFS model is compatible with all inline skates using this standard for frames (usually all aggressive skates or for the skatepark).
The blade is made of high quality stainless steel which will ensure a long life. Its rounded profile will give it all the agility you will need for your maneuvers. The frame is made of a resin that will withstand the cold of winter and the complete kit only weighs 260g.
