  1. 1. Plate sliding axle - front or back?



Recommended Posts

My impression is that most people who ride isocline/isolation plates mount them up with the sliding axle at the front of the board. The poll is here to see whether that impression is correct.

I'm interested in the reasons people come up with for why they mount their plate the way they do.

For now I'll keep my thoughts on the topic to myself.

I will bite ! You must be having a wonderful heat stroke induced dream (or nightmare). I will offer this thought, hinge in front for racing on ice, hinge on back for rough terrain. Since most people are lazy they tend to set up their board and then leave it.

Lowrider and I are plate buddies... all plate all the time... ok maybe not always I'm sure he has more powder days than me or double-blacks to decend! :rolleyes:

I mostly keep mine in the back. I find the ability to deal with cruddy conditions overweights the response time aspect. Also those two conditions ice and cruddy often co-inside with each other and I find fixed in the back better in that circumstance.

Worlds foremost slush carver. :D
