Default Skater plates.

I have a T 16 Skater Polar figure plate. The axle center to axle center is 160mm which is indicated by the 16. Spanish brand made in the early 2Ks.

As far as shorter than "factory recommendation"?? I ignore the "book" when building sk8s. Personally my Polar is on a size 9 Riedell 911. The "book" says I need a 180.


If you are into digging through the web https://web.archive.org/web/20040407...0/patinaje.htm The US importer was https://web.archive.org/web/20040413...terdirect.com/ and as far as I know was the only US source for parts.


Good luck finding parts. I did custom cushions for mine years ago.
