Lowest Price Guarantee
The Sure-Grip Avenger Magnesium plate series was created in response to the demand for stronger and lighter products for speed skating and roller derby. Using a high tech computer program, Sure-Grip designed every inch of the Avenger to have a purpose - thickness, heights, lengths, angles, and material were all chosen for their unique properties. The Avenger plate features some never before seen design elements, including a magnesium alloy that is 15% lighter than the Avenger Aluminum.

Comments: I switched from an extremely old version of the avenger to this plate. I am really happy with the change. The plate responds great to foot pressure and seems to hold up well to my hard playing style. I don't mind the weight and even think they are lighter than the old school avengers.

Comments: After a ton of research I decided that I wanted these plates. I am very happy with my choice. I had good plates but I wanted something that would help with agility and these seem to be doing just that. I had them mounted normally not a short forward and I like them that way. I was worried because of the degree of the plate that I would have a hard time adjusting but it only took one practice to get used to them.

Comments: I love my avengers. My ability to cut and maneuver with speed and precision has doubled since purchasing these plates for roller derby. It's amazing how light my skates are now I fully intend to purchase these plates for my next pair of boots. The 45 degree angle is amazing you won't ever want to back to a 10 degree angle and it's half the price and half the weight of some of the top of the line aluminum plates. A few downsides include:Toe stop adjustment: since magnesium is so soft it is easy to strip the toe stop insert. With the 45 degree angle your calves and shins will be a little soar your first few times skating, but they will get stronger and since when have derby girls shyed away from a little pain.
