Not properly. As far as I know, only 2 plates use that big cushion. The Classic and the NTS Kangaroo. It's an odd ball suspension, that one.

Now, just so ya know, I recently converted a Classic to use some old Cleveland Citation 200 trucks (400 Sabre trucks fit as well.) They were a great fit and now the sk8 takes standard SG super cushions.

Actually I do not @ the moment. It was pretty much a straight bolt on. (Besides, I was getting the impression some folks were tired of seeing my pix) I can most likely hunt up the customer @ the rink and shoot some. Anything in particular you wish to see??

Don't go to all that trouble. I was just curious to see the Citation trucks on the classic. I have some Classic's and Citations here but, not much time to play right now with Nationals starting next week.

Good luck @ Nationals.

Give the conversion a shot. It's a drop on and opens up a whole world of possibilities for folks that are looking for more from their Classics.

Lightbulb SG classic cushions

I sent off an email to see what the dimensions on these are:

If they'll fit I'll try them.

Default Don't think they will.

Khiros are the essentially the same size as the standard SG cushion.
