Sure-Grip Avenger White Magnesium Plates -
The Avenger plate concept was derived from the 45 degree Magnum and
45 degree Invader skate plates of the late 70’s early 80’s. Over the
last few years a lot of emphasis has been placed on strong light weight
products for speed and derby. In the 80’s we developed the single
action Magnum speed plate for this purpose, produced in both aluminum
and magnesium, this plate was very light and very strong. Recently we
have seen a greater awareness for this style plate; we saw it fitting to
redesign it using modern technology and what we came up with was the
Avenger. Using a computer aided design program every inch of this plate
was designed for a purpose; specific wall thickness, heights, lengths,
angles, and material were all chosen for their unique properties. The
avenger will be produced in both aluminum and magnesium and both will
come standard with the new DA45 truck. The Avenger aluminum will be
painted black and the magnesium plate will be painted white. All the
superior track hugging agility you have come to expect from the DA45
action in a new lightweight skate.
The Avenger plate features some never before seen design elements.
Some of the features that make this plate different from all the rest
are expressed below:
Hollow kingpin: Specially designed kingpin for this plate only. 30%
lighter than a traditional kingpin using hardened prime grade steel.
The specially designed kingpin will only fit on the Avenger and will
Hollow center: Hollowed out center section to save weight. Along
with the hollow center we raised the height to increase the rigidity
length wise. When compared to the Invader plate the weight savings will
be greater with the larger sizes but you can expect a significant
decrease in weight when compared to the standard Invader plate.
Aluminum alloy / Magnesium alloy: Unique weight saving techniques
have allowed us to cut the aluminum Avenger by 12% when compared to the
standard Invader plate. Magnesium alloy being even lighter we were able
to save an additional 15%, this is a total of 25% from the standard
Shortened front end: For those who want to get aggressive with their
short forward mounts can now do so with plenty of room to spare so the
plate will not hang over the front of your boot. The Avenger is
optimized for the short forward set up but a standard mount is still
DA45 trucks: New DA45 truck. Same basic design but optimized for
the fixed kingpin. Truck is slightly slimmer than the original version.8mm is standard axle size.
