Roller skate plates are what attach the boot to the trucks and thus your wheels. Your plate is another component that will affect the overall feel of your skating experience. Depending on what style of skating you do can determine which plate would work most ideally for you. Plates come in a variety of styles and materials, most notably nylon or metal/aluminum, and can be mounted in different ways to help with speed, agility or stability. If you are unsure which plate would best suit you, contact us and we'll be happy to help you find the right plate!
