Bought for a Christmas present. My son said they are smooth on the street. The color looks cool with the deck. I was a little worried about receiving them before Christmas but, they arrived with time to spare. I would definitely recommend wheels and provider. Thanks
These wheels make an unbelievable difference. I can go double the distance per single push. These wheels make rough asphalt feel buttery smooth. When going over surfaces with cracks (sidewalks, bricks) you usually lose momentum as soon as you push, requiring a lot more effort...not with shark wheels. Cracks don't cause you to lose momentum whatsoever...in fact, call me crazy, but I feel like the cracks somehow increase momentum and propel me forward. Bottom line is, these are not a gimmick. These are not a joke. These are worth every penny and should not be an option, they should be the new standard for longboard wheels. Classic wheels should no longer be an option. These are not a weird new invention. These are an innovation. 'The wheel" version 2.0. Excellent product. Will be buying more for all my boards.
I think they are great wheels. I have a shortboard and do tricks like flatland, ramp, and just like cruising too. They are great for all skating. They go faster than normal wheels and I tried them in sand, dirt, and in small rocks. It is much easier to slide. Great for leaning how to slide. Overall I think they are good wheels.
"These wheels were life changing! They're a lot softer than standard skateboard wheels so you won't annoy your neighbors by using them and they're not joking about how fast you'll go after the switch.
Shark Wheels are incredibly smooth and make skating for pleasure so much more fun!"
Best wheels ever!!!! I bought these wheels when there was a sale which included free shiver bearing. After waiting 5-6 days I finally got these and immediatly put them on my penny board and had a test ride not only is it fast thanks to the bearings and it is much more comfortable and the pushing of my penny board feels like a longboard.
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.
