Rolls over small pebbles even at low speeds. Great for efficient rolling on less than perfect surfaces. As far as I can tell, most people that hate these have never even tried them (or even seen them in person). They're not square, so any comments on the square wheels not working can immediately be dismissed as someone that never tried these.
Good and different wheel, it isn't really square but they do make a difference in your ride. Some people have said that they didn't see a difference but if your already riding a larger and softer wheel stay with it, but if you want something different or are going right from standard wheels you will see a big difference. Less traction though since there are only three contact points instead of the whole wheel. I recommend you try it even as a set you switch on and off.
My son loves these wheels! Thanks for the fast delivery!
Amazing rad as hell
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..
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.
Bought these shark wheels last week to have some grip but at the same time be able to slide. Worth every penny! I can ride when it's wet and not have to worry as much about the board slipping out and sliding with them is easy!
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.
