Roller Derby Plates - Buying Advice

What with the sheer amount of roller derby plates coming into the market, it's difficult to beᅠ

vastly specific about the pros and cons of generic factors. Your best bet is to research individualᅠ

plates and their specifications in order to see if they will suit you.

However, there are some loose guides that you can use in order to decipher generally whichᅠ

plate you should be looking for.

Nylon or Metal?

Most derby skates under the £200 mark will have nylon plates. They're light and relativelyᅠ

sturdy, thus suiting the sport pretty well. However, they aren't overly strong. Although it's quiteᅠ

difficult to break them, it *could* potentially happen. What's more likely is that the plate will bendᅠ

under pressure. This will completely compromise the plate's effectiveness and the reactivityᅠ

between the boot and plate will lose its tension. Therefore, it's worth upgrading to a metal plate,ᅠ

if you can.

Metal plates are usually made of titanium, aluminium or magnesium. As they won't flex underᅠ

pressure, the rigidity ensures that the reactivity between the plate and boot remains strong.

Weight

The general consensus is that most people want the lightest plate they can get their hands on,ᅠ

for the obvious benefit of potentially moving faster with less weight on their feet. The Pilot Falon,ᅠ

Suregrip Mag Avenger and PowerDyne Arius are arguable the lightest plates on the market.ᅠ

However, for a newbie slater, a heavy plate can have a distinct advantage with regard to beingᅠ

easier to control and keeping you grounded.ᅠ

Mount

There's potentially many different ways to mount a plate, but to keep it simple, consider the twoᅠ

most obvious ones ᆳ short forward and standard.

A short forward mount is.... Short and forward. The weight will be towards the front of your boot,ᅠ

away from your heels. Most of your control will come from the balls of your feet. When it comesᅠ

to agility, this is very handy, but for newbies, you're likely to struggle to distribute your weightᅠ

appropriately. The Suregrip Avenger series are probably the most popular agility plates at theᅠ

moment, but in theory, most plates can be bought a little smaller and used as a sport mount.

A standard mount is essentially a ムfull' mount that goes from heel to toe. It takes away theᅠ

pressure of having to put your weight forward and offers more stability. Again, potentially anyᅠ

plate can be ムmade' into a full mount, depending on the size you purchase. However, you mayᅠ

find that if you buy an agility plate and use it for a full mount, you will lose some of the agilityᅠ

benefit.
