Suregrip Avenger Plates Magnesium (White)
The Suregrip Avenger plate DA45 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 come pre-installed.
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 Invader.
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 possible.
DA45 trucks: New DA45 truck. Same basic design but optimized for the fixed kingpin. Truck is slightly slimmer than the original version.
Weight on our scales in size 2 - 1009g without toe stops

After much research I decided to purchase a set of 495s with Suregrip Avenger plates to try and up my game a bit for the upcoming World Cup. On a recommendation from a friend I had a look at Skate Britain and found the prices to be among the most reasonable about so decided to go with them, I'm very glad I did - the delivery was super fast with great customer service given during this period. When the skates, perfectly mounted, arrived I also noticed that I had been upgraded to the magnesium plate free of charge! I had a minor problem with the skates shortly afterwords and again the service and communication from Skate Britain was outstanding.
Overall this boot/plate combination has really enhanced my game and I would absolutely recommend Skate Britain as a great place to shop. Thanks again and sorry it's taken me so long to leave some feedback...
OMG....best plates around and this is the best value place to get them. After literally weeks of getting top advice from skate britain, tried my plates tonight and I'm a different skater now, nippy, agile and can turn on tight corners. Cannot recommend the plates, or the service I've received, highly enough, nothing was too much trouble and the plates do exactly what skate Britain said they would do for my skating style. Just one word of warning, take their advice re plate sizing, dont listen to anyone else!
