The spring plate is a new generation of ALLFLEX plates. It is cut in two pieces and connected together with a spring. The biggest benefit of the spring plate is its adjustability. It allows you to adjust entrance in to the beginning of the turn, acceleration when coming out of a turn and different setting for the front side and back side turn. The biggest advantage comparing to normal plates is an easier beginning of the turn and a good grip. The spring plate is the heaviest of all the plates, but while riding it you do not really feel it.
This plate is just amazing for carving. So much FUN!

ŽAN KOŠIR: When I choose the type of Allflex plate, I take into account the snow conditions and the steepness of the course. The plates I use mainly differ in the torsion to longitudinal flex ratio. I make a final decision after a test run on each course. I raced with three different plates this past season: the longitudinal, hexagonal, and triangular one; I used the latter when I won the olympic medal in Pyeongchang.
