Sure-Grip started with a simple roller skate wheel more than 70 years ago, today selling the same product under a different name called the Sure-Grip Original. Made from a material called phenolic which is essentially layers upon layers of fiberglass, this creates a very hard running surface ideal for rhythm skaters and or jam skaters. Who would have thought this little wheel would elevate a company started in a garage to a full-fledged manufacturing facility. Check out the Fugitive roller skate Wheel!
Sure-Grip manufactures all roller skate plates in the USA and has done so for its entire existence. Initially started with one in 1945 and has expanded to roughly 30 roller skate plates today with several more no longer in production. Our vast experience and technological innovations along the way utilizing CNC technology and advanced profiling we have been able to simply make a product better than anyone else.
Sure-Grip has been a major innovator in the roller skate bearing industry with the partnerships between Fafnir and Hartford bearing companies in the early 60s and 70s. In many cases most of these bearings were made special for Sure-Grip. Today Sure-Grip markets its own roller skate bearings under the QUBE brand with several different options to choose from: Qube Pink, Qube Juice , Qube Gold, Qube 8-ball , and Qube Ceramic.
