As you may already know, Riedell is constantly developing and innovating their products together with their partners.
For 2016 the original red Arius plate (developed by Dan (Kno Limits) Miller, yep, the same guy who developed the Adonis wheels) is even better! If you were afraid you would break the light but strong red plate, now there is the champagn version, wich is even stronger. The toe-stop screw is moved to the front to make sure it is better kept in place and it makes the front of the plate stronger and stiffer.
And for the people who already own an Arius plate and tried to change the butterfly cushions... With the new version of the plate it's easier to change them. The new trucks hold the split butterfly cushions better in place, so there is no need anymore for the extra screws. Yeah! another improvement :-)
On top of the new design, the plate is platinum colored, to match your custom boots even more...
The platinum Arius will be available in your local theater soon!
Oh, and by the way, if you are an original Arius owner, and you want to treat your plate to the new winged trucks, even that is possible. And there is also the option of changing your 8mm axles to 7mm.
