Grindplate: Quickdraw

The Quickdraws from Soap were to be a very unique shoe. They were to have 'quick release' plates that would allow you to change grind plates extremely quickly with a tool that was to be included. Another cool feature on the Quickdraws was that the laces go around to the back, so you end up tying them in back. The Soap Quickdraws never made it past prototype status though, because there was problems of keeping the plates on during long grinds, rough grinds, big jumps and hard landings.

-Grey/Orange (grey / black / orange)

I would honestly feel safer with plates that you NEED a tool for....i never had SOaps with removable plates but if i did....never the quickdraws....I've only had the Express's....which are nice by the way

YO Steve and Derek, do you guys have any pix of these? I was wondering what they looked like

I agree with Antho on the removeable plates issue. I feel more safe with cemented on plates.

hey Antho, I never got the prototypes on these so the only thing I have is the Spring 2001 catalog with them shown. The protos were torn-up in crash testing! The contrast really is bad in the catalog shot though, as it was a black plate on a black sole. The best way to visualize it is a speedster plate with one screw hole at the back of the plate as opposed to the normal (two forward, one back) three point arrangement on other removable Soap grind plates.

whoa, i can't believe i forgot to scan this one. i'll try to get to it soon.

Damn....ONE screw at the back...?

If they were gonna do the One screw thing, shouldnt they have done it in the middle?

Jan 24, 2007 AnthoFlex

Or or, better yet, Why even make a single-screw release shoe?

EVERY replaceable plate Soapshoe is like the quickdraws to me.....You just take out the back and slide the plate out....and then slide another one in and screw the thing back in

I think I may have a way to get these in stores... I have yet to try it, but I could've gotten the Lock system right.

Jan 24, 2015 Waffle

Wonder what these look like!

Jan 25, 2015 mcgrinder2011

I'm not sure, but I have a feeling they would look pretty sick. except for the plates because this post did say that test models had trouble keeping the plates on...

Jan 25, 2015 Waffle

Imagine going down a 40ft. Rail and then the plates slipping of. That's the recipe for death.

Jan 27, 2015 mcgrinder2011

I already knew that. but there is a small chance you could survive if you hit something just as you hit the ground and it didn't break under your weight.
