What's special about these plates?

Apr 15, 2006 Surfaced

Fast, Great lock-on, and tweakable.

Apr 21, 2006 teamhoax

they do look good !!

Apr 27, 2006 Surfaced

I only have one question- where did people get these? Were they on Septums, or were Slo Bros?

Jul 1, 2006 broox

These were some of my favorite plates - with a VERY limited release. They seriously had a perfect angle for tweaked grinds. They locked in just as well - if not better than the slo bros. However, they are fairly thin so you will wear through them super quick if you grind lots of ledges.

First apppearance of the Octane Plate was 2000BTS (back-to-school) as a change-over on the Sylons from the BBK plate. By 2001Spring the the Sylons had been discontinued and the Octane Plate was switched to be offered on the newly introduced Septums, but by 2001Fall the Septums had been changed-over to the BBK plate. So ends the Octane plate's brief one selling season of glory! Broox as absolutely correct on the VERY limited release.

I've never seen a pair of Septums with BBKs

Jul 1, 2006 Go2Crew

Sorry Mart, I was just getting ready to correct my comment when you beat me to it! You are right, Septums switched from the Octane plate to the Slo Bro plate. My error on the previous comment .... don't know what I was thinking .... Thanks.

No worries Steve, it's all good

Sep 10, 2006 chip

they look like there blown up with air

Sep 11, 2006 Go2Crew

No, look closer. The cavity void in the middle [the Soap "O"] puts flat grinds on the right and left ridges, which equals low friction and one fast run. And look at the defined grooves on the right and left edges for side grinds. Excellent tweek-age.

These are the best plates ever besides slobros

Nov 8, 2006 snikas

I gotta go with you on that one man

Dec 17, 2006 onthegrindduude

anthos got bbks on these it looks sweet

Dec 17, 2006 Surfaced

Look at what you said.

AnthoFlex has got BBKs on these

That doesn't make sense.

Dec 18, 2006 onthegrindduude

i meant hes got yellow bbks on septums instead of these ( these come with them) sorry

Jan 28, 2007 AnthoFlex

I still have the Octanes that came with the Septums though

Thanx Steve : )

Jan 29, 2007 dskater

is there a way to put plates on heelys that dont come with plates on them,but have the curve on the side?

Jan 29, 2007 SonicSoaper

NOOOOOOO!

Jan 29, 2007 AnthoFlex

ummmm.....look at the above comment

Jan 29, 2007 dskater

yeah i see,but im getting heelys

Jan 29, 2007 SonicSoaper

Then you'd better get the ones with grind plates. This isn't exactly a Heelys site.

Jan 30, 2007 AnthoFlex

Heelys are gay, but if you like chilling with the 8 year olds, go for it

Jan 30, 2007 matrix8967

yeah, anotho's right, i've never seen anyone over the age of 12 with them...except like...Kru, and he only bought them because he had to. poor guy. anyway, back to the subject at hand, these plates are bitchin' if you want to talk about heely's and all that, take it to the forum.

---Alex

Jan 30, 2007 AnthoFlex

Yea, these plates are awesome.....Got sum on my Septums.

I don't hate Heelys, i just think they're for kids

Jan 31, 2007 shdook

The only removeable plate i do not have yet but i hope to get it soon.

Feb 2, 2007 AnthoFlex

by the way, these plates rock....extremely fast, and Perfect lock-in

10/10

Feb 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

I love my Octanes, the outside is perfect for tweaking, its also shaped in a way that you wont have to stress yourself to get on the brake bar when you need to. Its like the Slobros, but with better lock-in and its soooo much faster

Feb 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

also, (everyone who has slobros knows this, because the slobros have those "speedy bumbs when new)

when the Octanes are new, they are covered in diamond shaped grooves, its quite a sight to see

Feb 10, 2007 matrix8967

yeah, i've seen pics of that, but it's wierd because that pic doesnt have them.

---Alex

Feb 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

Because these pics arent the best quality

Feb 17, 2007 shdook

He didnt say anything bad to anyone, if you care that much about nothing you can just leave

Feb 17, 2007 AnthoFlex

By the way, these plates are sick

Feb 17, 2007 SonicSoaper

They look like a tunnel that you really want to run through.

Feb 17, 2007 RamenRadio

I wonder if Deel has any in size 12.

Feb 17, 2007 shdook

no, steve doesnt have any octanes left.

Feb 17, 2007 RamenRadio

Darn, such a shame. :(

Feb 17, 2007 AnthoFlex

yea, i have the last known 9/10 Octanes. But dunt despair my friends, i have a plan....

Feb 17, 2007 SonicSoaper

Dun dun duuuuuuuuuun!

Feb 17, 2007 RamenRadio

I believe ya Renny! Can't wait to hear the plan :D

Feb 17, 2007 matrix8967

i've heard the plan, and i must say. if it works, i might just believe in god again. not really, but it will be the closest thing to a miracle ever. lol

---Alex

Feb 17, 2007 shdook

So have I, cannot wait till you do it...

Feb 17, 2007 AnthoFlex

The Octanes are really just replaceable Speedsters....

This meaning the Super Fast, Super Lock-in

Feb 18, 2007 SonicSoaper

And technically the Speedsters are Expresses so that means...*gasp* HALLELUJAH!

Feb 23, 2007 kobansora

THese look so sexy

~JJ

Feb 23, 2007 matrix8967

lol, antho, you think everything is like a speedster. express, octane, speedster...jk

Feb 23, 2007 SonicSoaper

Yeah well, he HAS tried EVERY SINGLE PLATE.

Feb 23, 2007 AnthoFlex

Exactly, but what i meant with the Octane was that it was fast and great lock-in, like the Speedsters.

The speedsters look NOTHING like this


But i stil stick by my Express/Speedster argument, REGARDLESS what people say

Feb 23, 2007 shdook

Well, I have not tried the speedster plate yet but when I Do i will report if I think they ride the same. The def look simalar though. Oh and if you have ever used the impact grindplate it is a fucking amazing plate it is incredibly good, great tweakage, and when you get a nice groove going these things are the shit! highly recommended.

Feb 23, 2007 SonicSoaper

Hmm. I'll wait to see if I can grab these plates.

Feb 23, 2007 AnthoFlex

Good luck, i have the last known new pair

Feb 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

Sep 4, 2007 RamenRadio

Really awkward......

Oct 17, 2007 AnthoFlex

The original name for these was "The Wafer" plate.

I guess something about "Octane" seemed much more "got to have these plates"

Oct 17, 2007 SpiderSoaper

octane does sound alot cooler, and it has the same name of a certain chemical in gasoline, but thats another story, the wafer sounds funny

Oct 17, 2007 AnthoFlex

Wafer is exactly what it looks like though. All the little diamond imprints all over the plate when new

Oct 17, 2007 SpiderSoaper

aint a wafer that cookie thing?

Oct 17, 2007 sam

A wafer is a flat thin cookie that usually has a waffle pattern to it which would be diamonds.

Oct 17, 2007 SpiderSoaper

thanx i remember

Jul 18, 2013 VintageGMan

I want some of these soooo bad.............

Jul 19, 2013 gongon1037

I would love to test these out

Aug 5, 2013 manofmisery

they're amazing plates for rails, but they're basically paper think plates. if you guys really want to try octanes, try carving some grooves while looking carefully at this picture. That's only to get an idea though, grooves made by ledges are always the best.

Aug 5, 2013 mindreader

someone contact that new company and have them make some of these!!!!!!

Aug 6, 2013 VintageGMan

I have emailed them twice, maybe we need a mega petition to show them the scene is still very much alive.

Aug 6, 2013 bilbamuspirme

Is there anywhere in the world I can get new plates for my Boltars. Ive only had em a week and ive nearly killed the plates! I'm with vintage though, we need suppliers to take notice of the scene.

Aug 6, 2013 zelda

make a petition, as for plates I have them and so does rawk

Aug 7, 2013 VintageGMan

Hi Zelda, do you any plates in size 11/12 spare for sale please. Also bulbamus is a size 9.

Aug 8, 2013 zelda

Post your email in your about me section :) theres some stuff around, def 11/12

Aug 9, 2013 VintageGMan

Thankyou zelda will do.

Mar 7, 2015 Waffle

Jan 5, 2016 Waffle
