I was a little skeptic when I saw them featured on Shark Tank but I went ahead and bought them it didn't take long to get them through the mail. Anyway I went for a ride today did a few slides, now I am convinced they are the best.
used these on my mini long board. i have plantar faciitis, and these help with the rough sidewalks in my neighborhood.
Ride quality goes up 1000% best set of wheels I have owned in a long time. Paired these with some Sidewinders and never doubted their performance.
Rolls smooth like any other wheel, handles snow rain and gravel like a champ! Don't be fooled buy its awkward shape and tread patterns this wheel rolls slightly faster than normal wheels on regular weather days! We first got these and tested them out immediately on our first big snowy day and no sliding or slipping! It was slower than expected but it they keep on rolling!
These are nearly the best 50 dollars I've ever spent. Before these, I had the worst wheels that wouldn't go over anything. And these wheels are so freakin smooth it's insane. I've gone over some pretty big sticks and rocks with these and it never completely stops and jolts you off your board. I was reluctant spending 50 bucks on skateboard wheels but trust me it's sooooooooo worth it!
"Wow, I didn't know reinventing the wheel was probable, I have been persuaded otherwise! I notice the difference as soon as I rode out of my garage. I was a tad skeptical at first on the shape, but I have fallen in love with these wheels.
Everything is so smooth now, for me this fits my style more. Not only does it look amazing it works far better than my old set. To give you some perspectives...Imagine putting summer tires on your car, sure they will grip a whole lot better, but they have a far firmer ride.
In the case of the shark wheels, image it being similar to a high performance all season tire. Sure you lose a bit of grip but at the same time, they provide a safer ride everywhere else. They can grip in the rain/dirt/sand far better than the normal solid wheels.
The groves in these wheels help repel road matters out from under instead of gliding over them. In conclusion, I am very happy with the purchase and recommend this to my friends.
I wouldn't get these as sliding wheels, though; they are rather expensive, and I would not feel comfortable destroying these wheels."
i love these wheels they make the ride so much smother and i no longer have to worry about death pebbles they are a thing of the past i strongly suggest that you buy a set of shark wheels they are amazing
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.
