At the heart of the Onyx boots is the Dual Center Mounting (DCM) system. Your Chaya plate can be fixed to the boot by just two (2) screws. No more drilling, no more anxiety about making mistakes while mounting your boots. DCM is fast, simple and effective! DCM also allows you to shift your plate front to back and also 3mm side to side in order to truly customize your set up. Customization for us at Chaya means more than just changing colors, laces or uppers. Customization for us means TRUE customization from A to Z starting with fitting and plate assembly.
Do you want to combine your Onyx boot with your ‘non Chaya’ plate? No worries – you can mount our boots to any brand of plate.
To gain full advantage of the DCM system we recommend to combine your Onyx boot with one of Chaya´s state of the art plates. Chaya offers lots of options. Plates can be selected by truck angle or by wheel fixation system. Shiva and Ophira plates are available with 20° and 45° trucks, and Zena plates in 20° only. The Shiva plate offers CLIP AXLES for super quick wheel changing. Ophira plates come with a regular wheel fixation by action nuts and standard threaded axles. The new high light is the QUICKY AXLES (patent pending) of the Zena plate, using a push and release mechanism – wheel changing has never been this easy or fast.
To get your skates performing at the highest level possible we also recommend JUICE wheels and WICKED high precision bearings.
FIND YOUR SKATE SIZE
For the best performance, inline skates should have a snug fit. It's not necessary to buy inline skates one size larger than your foot size; as they break in, all inline skates will expand and widen over time. It's important to know that soft boots will expand more than hybrid or carbon boots.
3 EASY STEPS TO MEASURE YOUR FEET:
Place and fix an A4 sheet of paper on the floor against a straight wall that ends flush with the floor. Wear your usual skating socks for more accuracy and place your foot on the sheet with your heel touching the wall (make sure your heel touches the wall without significant pressure.)
Stand relaxed on the foot you are measuring and draw a line around the outline of your foot starting at the big toe. Be sure to hold the pencil vertically to prevent any deviation. It's ideal to have a friend draw the line for better accuracy. Measure the length of the paper to the line: that's your MONDOPOINT size.
TIP: For the best fit, measure your foot after a short skating session or at the end of the day as your foot will naturally swell and expand.
Do the same for the other foot and compare measurements. The correct size will be the length of the longer foot:
Precision fit add 2-3mm.
Comfort fit add 4-6mm.
Now, with these measurements, you can take the correct size from our sizing charts.
