Shark Wheel Shades 54mm Street/Park Wheel. These new wheels are one of a kind with improvements in speed and performance over the traditional street wheel.
Best of both worlds
Smooth and quiet ride for having such a high durometer but still able to slide more than the california rolls. But not as fast. Able to ride over small pebbles with confidence. All in all a pretty versatile wheel to add to the collection
Da Best! Duh!
These, like all of the other styles of Shark Wheels, are amazing. These are the smoothest wheels I’ve ever ridden and the best bearings. So much faster and funner to ride than any wheels I have ever skated on. These are without exception, the best 54 wheels I’ve had. People are stunned when they see them cause they’re square. What a genious idea.
They are good skatepark wheels but they don’t feel like 100a feels more like 90a
They add cruizing distance there just kinda heavy only complaint
Terrific hardness of the wheel makes them ride amazing on ramps and at parks. Definitely the envy of the other skaters.
First I am over 40 and started Skateboard lessons with my son about 2 years ago. I started with 54mm spitfire wheels but when I would cruz paved trails for fun and practice it felt like I was going to lose a filling. I treated myself then to 60mm sharkwheels and have loved every smooth glorious moment on them. I just bought a set of 54mm and I will probably never go back to regular wheels. Please take note of the request for more colors! The reason I will never go back is simple. As an older person I get a small heartattack every time a wheel ticks over a crack or transition and heaven forbid there is a rock or pine or pinecone debris with regular wheels! I could end up needing a hip replacement along with my pacemaker! Sharkwheels smooth everything out and rocks or path junk just pops out of the way. I just got my 54mm and the ramp transitions and 50/50 over coping are not as jumpy. They are simply smoother and for the hypersensitive like me who suck in a last breath at every sight hiccup it is a miracle of science! Fibonacci rocks, thanks sharkwheels you make an old lady smile!
Wish these came in other colors
Amazed at the ride!
The width is increased, but the friction is decreased! The sine wave design provides three lips per wheel for superior lateral grip. When you want to slide, they break away smoothly and recover easily.
The wave pattern design allows for a thin contact patch touching the ground and therefore less friction, resulting in a quicker ride.
The alternating pattern of grooves significantly reduces hydroplaning by channeling liquid, sand or gravel out and away from the surface of the wheel, allowing for a firm contact patch with the ground.
