Symetrics brand is a sister company founded by Adapt brand owners Olga Bouwhuis and Pieter Wijnant. The first Symetrics product we made was the symmetrical soulplate that comes along with Adapt skates. We have come a long way since our first product and now offer a wide range of frames, soulplates, wheels, bearings and goodies.
The goal with Symetrics is to make the best performing parts for inline skating. Whether it be souplates, frames or wheels, we always go for the best option rather than the easy or cheaper option. With access to several CNC machines and an ever growing knowledge on materials, we are always improving and innovating.
Symetrics, simply performance.
Where can I purchase Symetrics products?
All Symetrics products can be purchased at the webshop of sister company adaptbrand.com
What makes Symetrics soulplates & plastic flat frames different from other hardware?
The Symetrics soulplate & flat frames are the only production hardware on the market that is CNC-machined instead of poured. By using CNC techniques, harder materials can be used. The material used for the Symetrics soulplate and flat frames is a raw, self lubricating material that makes the Symetrics soulplates and flat frames the fastest hardware in the world.
We are often asked the question if we use 'diamond material' or UHMW for our hardware. Products made with these materials are incomparable and inferior to our products. The material we use is harder, slides faster (also on aluminium), lasts longer and will not deform upon impact.
Our soulplate and flat frame material is from Italian origin and is machined in The Netherlands.
Can I use Symetrics soulplates on my skates?
Symetrics soulplates fit on most flat based boots, for some boots a little modification is needed. Symetrics soulplates fit on all Adapt aggressvie models (Brutale/Rivale/Stealth/Vegan/ONE), USD Carbon, USD Carbon-free, USD Seven (VII) and Seba CJ models without modification. Symetrics soulplates fit on Rollerblade Solo and Salomon models with minor modifications.
What are the dimensions of the Symetrics soulplates?

Will the Symetrics frames fit on my skates?
When it comes to mounting Symetrics frames, we offer 4 types of frames: UFS frames, 165mm mount frames, 195mm mount frames and Quattro mount frames.
The Symetrics flat frames use the UFS (Universal Frame System) mount and fit on all UFS aggressive skates. Both the Symetrics flat frames as well as all UFS aggressive boots are flat and have mounting holes at 165mm, meaning all UFS frames fit on all UFS boots.
The Symetrics Hyperskate frames are non-UFS. The Hyperskate frames use the 165mm or SSM mount (165mm Short Speed Mount) and fit on any boot that uses this mount. The types of boots that use this mount are primarily hyperskates and freeskates. These types of boots have a raised heel and therefore the backside of these types of frames are raised as well (10mm height difference). Therefore, these types of frames do not fit on aggressive boots without modification (and vice versa).
The Symetrics Marathon frames are non-UFS. The Marathon frames use the 195mm mount and fit on any boot that uses this mount. The types of boots that use this mount are primarily speed skates. These types of boots have a raised heel and therefore the backside of these types of frames are raised as well (10mm height difference). Therefore, these types of frames do not fit on aggressive boots without modification (and vice versa).
The Symetrics Quattro frames are non-UFS. The Quattro frames use a unique mount developed by Adapt; the Quattromount. Quattro frames therefore only fit on Adapt Hyperskate boots. The Quattro mount uses 4 outside bolts to mount the frame to the boot, rather than the traditional 2 inside bolts.
The Adapt Hyperskate boot has a raised heel (10mm height difference) and has a unique mount that allows for both 165mm, 195mm and Quattro mount frames to be mounted.
If you are unsure which frames will fit on your boot, feel free to contact us so we can help you out.
