The Symetrics flat frames are already on version 5 now! Dubbed 'Flat Frame Plastic' from now on, the frames are now made with a denser grade of the same plastic for improved strength and rigidity against warping. The frames have a very long lifespan since the plastic almost does not wear down. Meaning, the frame will last longer then any injection moulded frame.
The Symetrics flat frame is specifically designed for riding flat and can fit wheels up to 62mm. When used in combination with the Symetrics v4 soulplates, you can ride wheels up to 65mm (64mm flat shape or 65mm bullet shape). If you do not have the Symetrics v4 Soulplates, you can simply make some small wheel wells in your soulplates to fit the 65mm wheels.
The Symetrics flat frame is the first frame to offer a dual angled groove that ensures a better ability to lock onto grinds. By combining a smaller and shallower groove with the perfect frame wall thickness the grinding surface will be diverted away from your wheels, ensuring you will not get stuck on your wheels while grinding. The frames are CNC machined out of the same material as the Symetrics soulplates, so they slide like butter and are extremely durable. As of 2019, all Symetrics flat frames come with our own CNC machined hardware, made of stainless steel.
