PLATES- POWERDYNE PLATINUM ARIUS
The PowerDyne Arius is a derby game changer. It is like nothing you have ever seen. The all new Arius design is lighter, stronger, more stable, more powerful, more maneuverable and offers more efficient power transfer and any other plate on the market. The Powerdyne Arius is also very simple to set up when it comes to turning the truck action.
How does it work? The key to the revolutionary design of the Arius is efficiency. Traditional kingpin plates pinch a portion of the round cushions against the kingpin to produce movement, an inefficient design that requires constant adjustment to find optimal performance. The Arius features Progressive Lateral Movement of the truck, which is completely new. The axle presses the Cushion Crown of the truck evenly against the specially designed split cushion, creating efficient pressure. The result is stability with immense amounts of action.
6061 Series heat-treated lightweight extruded aircraft aluminium plate
Unmatched stability and response
- Anodized metallic platinum finish
- Progressive lateral movement creates efficient pressure while eliminating traditional stress points that cause breakage

COMES STANDARD WITH Morph WheelsThe revolutionary morph from Reckless TM wheels was developed to meet the high demands of elite derby players. The morph features a thoroughly tested and proven dual “stacked” urethane that delivers maximum speed, precise grip and reliable stability. This innovative process allows the fusion of a performance speed compound for fast roll, with a softer compound at the edge of the wheel allowing for better edge control. The “stacked” technology gives you the best of both worlds without the hassle of constantly changing wheels. The structural integrity of the link core improves skating speed and response — an essential element in today’s derby and roller sports. By merging all the elements, the new morph is the most innovative and dynamically technical wheel in derby today.
COMES STANDARD WITH MOTO BEARINGS
MOTO Speed Skate Bearings are pre-spu at the factory to ensure tolerances that exceed standard specifications.

Antik Heat Molding Instructions
Heat molding instructions provided by Antik
Depending on how you want your boots to fit, there are a few options for heat molding the counters and toe box.
After molding, the metal components of skate boots may be very HOT! Watch out for buckles, eyelets, and aglets! After heating and lacing up the boot, try not to move around too much. Ideally you want to be in a skating stance so that your foot is as close to the shape that it would be while skating. Moving around in the boot will not allow the boot to cool in a uniform manner. Finally, after initial cooling, allow the boot to stand for several hours (up to a day) before any rigorous skating!
Option 1 (for specific "trouble spots"): Heat Gun or Hair Dryer
This option is for individual problem areas (toes, arch, outer foot), and lets you mold one section at a time. Keep the gun/dryer approximately 6-8 inches away from the boot, moving in a small circular pattern so as not to over heat one spot. This should take about 3 minutes with a heat gun and 6-7 with a hair dryer. Once the material is pliable, use your hands to massage & push out the problem spot, and hold until cool (blunt end of screwdriver can be used to push out particularly tight spots). This process can be repeated as many times as needed.
Option 2 (for general fit): Skate Bake or Kitchen Oven
This option allows you to mold all three spots at once. Mold only one boot at a time! First, pre-heat oven to ~175 degrees; do NOT exceed 200 degrees! Remove insole, laces, toe stop, wheels, and bearings (cushions can be left on). Place boot/skate in oven on rack or cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Remove boot (it will be HOT!). Insert insole, place foot in boot and lace up (wearing socks you wear while skating). Stand up in boots, in skating stance, and wait until cool. This proces can be repeated as many times as needed.
