Sure Grip - Avenger Magnesium plate

Sure Grip - Avenger Magnesium plate

Plate Size

The Avenger plate offers a 45 degree action and full a customized feel for the skater. 
Pivot adjustment: Pivot pins are not factory adjusted. Always adjust the pivot pins so that the ball just touches the bottom of the Delrin pivot cup.

  • The pivot pin adjustment should be checked regularly once installed. Do not assume the pivot pin adjustment is correct if no

  • movement is felt when checking the adjustment. It could be adjusted longer than necessary. Pivot pins adjusted too long can

  • cause the skate to have an unpleasant “darting” feel when skating. If the pivot pin ball does not touch the pivot cup you will be

  • able to press down on the truck assembly and feel or see a slight movement of the pivot pin into and out of the cup. Adjust the

  • pivot pin until the pressure applied to the truck no longer results in this movement. When satisfied that the pivot pin is resting

  • with slight pressure in the pivot cup, secure the pivot pin lock nut firmly against the truck housing. NEVER skate your plates with

  • the pivot pin lock nuts improperly tightened. Loose pivot pins will self-adjust and possibly damage the threads in the trucks.

  • Cushions:

  • The DA45 truck is very unique when compared to other trucks on the market. Due to its extreme angle it must use a special set

  • of cushions, one “barrel” and one “conical” cushion. We developed a special urethane with 4 different hardness levels to fine

  • tune the action of your skate.

  • Blue – 72A

  • Yellow – 79A

  • Purple – 85A

  • Red – 93A

  • Tips for tuning your action.

  • 1) Remember a stiff action may make a skater feel more stable initially, however, it has several adverse side effects. The

  • most important one to consider is the amount of force needed to make the skate do what you want it to do. The stiffer

  • the action, the harder you need to work to get the skate to turn. This effort can lead to premature wear or failure of

  • boots or worse, your feet. A simple rule of thumb. The stiffer the action, the more the SKATE controls where you are

  • going. The softer the action, the more YOU control where you are going. How is that again? You say you have

  • experienced a loose action behave like it has a mind of its own?? Not so. The skate is simply going where you tell it to

  • go and you are over correcting. The more you over correct, the more erratic the skating becomes.

  • 2) The DA45 action turns more quickly and easily than any other design on the market. It will go exactly where you tell it

  • to go if properly adjusted. Do not hamper this ability by over tightening the action. If you can see the side of the barrel

  • cushion even starting to bulge out the side, you have the action too tight and you should use a stiffer cushion set. Over

  • tightening the action can cause the entire skate to fail.

  • 3) Do not loosen the action more than necessary. If you can easily turn the cone cushion retainer with your fingers, the

  • action is too loose. Use softer cushions to get the desired turning behavior.

  • 4) Cushion sets can be split to get optimum tuning. Typically a softer cone is used with a harder barrel cushion. An

  • example is a purple barrel with a blue cone cushion. While this give an overall feel similar to a pair of yellow cushions,

  • the purple barrel will provide a better push than the yellow barrel and the blue cone will compensate for the extra

  • stiffness of the purple barrel.

  • 5) It is essential to experiment with your skates to find the best setting for you. It is also essential to verify you are using

  • the best setting for your improving skills by continuing to experiment.

  • 6) Remember to adjust the pivot pins after adjusting or replacing cushions.
