These little 60s are great wheels in their own right. Love the multi-color idea, they look awesome on my checkered deck. Really roll nice and are easy to push when cruising. Even going uphill is easier with these. They kick out rocks and debris much better than conventional wheels this size so I believe they are safer to use. going to buy more sets of 60s for my other decks as they are excellent wheels and worth every penny.
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.
