  • Precisely machined specifically to shore up the trucks on PowerDyne Arius plates, these shims fit onto the truck yoke and eliminate all slop on the axis pin.


    New for 2024: two styles! 
    Basic - great for all skaters of all levels looking for the necessary protection for the plate.

    Advanced - higher grade for the skaters who bring the heat and are super hard on their gear.


    Secure each shim in place with a tiny dab of Loctite 242 and then use clear tape or a drop of clear fingernail polish to cover the alignment fins. There are a couple more little tricks we'll use to get these perfectly seated on your plates, but once these are all set, you will feel quite a difference.


    One set comes with 8 shims, two for each truck.


    This will allow you to run significantly softer cushions to catch deeper edges and cuts without sacrificing any agility. On a plate that already runs like greased lightning, this will have you flying!
