Best wheels I've ever had. Going to pick up some 70mm's as well.
Been riding these wheels for a few months now, not a single stop rock. I even covered my driveway with rocks that would ordinarily send me flying....just rode right over them. They don't appear to wear any faster than regular wheels and they give a very smooth ride. Additionally, I feel much greater control in my slides with these wheels than I ever did before.
These wheels are amazing...better grip better sliding because of the way its made...all around great wheel for running over difficult terrain, smooth rides and sliding... and as to if your wondering these are better than skiddles, butterballs and also zombiehawgs.....these are a legitimate wheel that will be shipped to your doorstep before its supposed to...great great product...would recommend..
Always get asked about my wheels because I go to a college with a lot of skateboarders. Looks cool, works great for sliding, makes riding over those bumps at the end of sidewalks sooooo much easier, great grip, and an overall good product!
Great wheels, well priced!
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.
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.
