The Avenger plate concept was derived from the 45 degree Magnum and 45 degree Invader skate plates of the late 70s early 80s. Over the last few years a lot of emphasis has been placed on strong light weight products for speed and derby. Recently Sure Grip have seen a greater awareness for this style plate; and saw it fitting to redesign it using modern technology and in doing so 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 is produced in aluminum which come standard with the new DA45 truck. You get all the superior track hugging agility you have come to expect from the DA45 action in a new lightweight skate.

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 standard and one conical cushion.
