The Sure-Grip Classic plate is an artistic plate for the intermediate skater that is accustomed to a standard 10 degree double action plate but wants to have the option of adjusting the pivot action.
The Sure-Grip Classic is a forged plate with an offset toe stop placing the toe stop right under the big toe allowing the a more direct transfer of energy from the skates foot to the stop. This creates more precision with less effort for better jumps and even greater control. These plates are a truly classic design that have been used by some of the best skaters for decades. A fantastic plate for a person who is ready to make the jump from skating as a hobby to competitive skating.

They Are a little heavier than my last plates but feel more sturdy
I Bought them for my daughter after she broke her old ones, she loves them so far
They are Just like the ones that I grew up skating on and Im more comfortable using. Exactly what i was looking for
They are a very good plate but I would advise heavier/adult skaters to replace the kingpins every six to twelve months as these become fatigued and can snap off suddenly, usually where the lock nut meets the threaded hole in the plate. If the front one snaps it will send you straight down onto your toestop which can lead to serious injury to knees and wrists.
