50/50 was started in 1994 with one focus, make skating better. Our first product was the 50/50 Grindplate, a mix of plastic and metal to make grinds easier. We evolved the grindplate design until realizing the frame could become the grindplate. This created the aftermarket frame market, a replacement for the frames that came on your skates that made skating better.
Over the years the frame design and mounting systems evolved. Follow us through our frame history.
