Switch Attack 165 or SA165 is a Spin Track released by Takara Tomy as part of the Synchrome System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BBG-17 Zero-G Random Booster Vol. 2 Archer Gargole SA165WSF on July 21st, 2012, and in western countries with the release of the SS-17 Archer Gargoyle SA165WSF Starter Pack.


Full Width: 21 mm Minimum Width: 20 mm

Reminiscent of Armor 145, SA165 also has a wide, parabolic shape around its core which is completely hollow except for the rigid sides forming the parabola. This latter piece can be removed, flipped, and inserted back on the core of the Track to build another mode which is more likely to touch the stadium floor, especially in Zero-G Stadiums. The parabolic part is not perfectly smooth however, as it has linear ridges going towards the core, and its outermost circumference is full of small spikes, much like GCF. Its diameter is considerable though.

  • Defense Mode

When the parabola is ascending, with its diameter increasing toward the top, SA165 is in Defense Mode. Its wide perimeter is closest to the Metal Wheel or Chrome Wheel and offers a reinforcement to it.

  • Attack Mode

If the parabolic piece is flipped so that it forms a skirt that hangs over the Bottom rather than embraces the Chrome Wheel or Metal Wheel above, this Track is in Zero-G Attack Mode since it reproduces the wide diameter of efficient Zero-G Attack Bottoms such as GCF and CF.

Switch Attack 165 is the only height of its kind, while keeping the same gimmick as SW145. Although it trades the triangular shape of the disk for a more, cylinder-shaped cone-like one. This disk, fits onto the Spin Track and is supposedly meant for Defense, Attack and Balance customs. Also noticeable are tire-like designs and protrusions on the disk.

SA165 features two modes, "Attack Mode" and "Defense Mode". In Defense Mode, the disk faces up but in Attack Mode, it faces downwards.
