WORDS FROM THE OWNER:
Great Wheels don't think i can go Back to regular ones. Rides nice and smooth and removes all concern of hitting a rock or pebbles. i would suggest getting the 70mm wheels over the 60mm ones.
I was a bit skeptical going in, but these really are some great wheels. They seem to spin forever, and really are very smooth when you're riding them. I'd highly recommend them.
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!"
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.
These wheels are awesome! I have not tried them on cobblestone or dirt paths yet, but my street isnt the smoothest in the world and there is a huge difference between these wheels and my regular 54mm skate wheels. These are super smooth! Highly recommended!
These are amazing I bought the to travel they are super smooth and easy to get around town on this is a must buy don't hesitate this is well worth your hard earned money
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.
