I've only been longboarding for around two weeks before I found out about shark wheels, and in my limited experience I can definitely feel a difference from the smooth ride, great grip in the rain, and rolling through debris that would otherwise cause a wipeout.
All six skaters in this house agree, these are the smoothest wheels we've ever tried. Great over bumpy areas, fantastic carving feel, cool looking with a fast smooth roll. So fast that when my 60 pound daughter rode these side by side with me on standard wheels, she rolled faster with no extra pushing, while I pushed to keep up. No joke, these things roll super smooth and I'm using five dollar generic bearings for mine.
It's now 2 weeks after my first order and I've already ordered 3 more sets.
Lastly, the translucent colors look sick as funk in the daylight! Sorry for the novel but I'm passionate about these wheels now. Thanks
Pretty amazing. Pot holes, cracks, beach, you name it !!
These things shred!!!!
I put these wheels on my cruiser and got the slightest wheel bite with quarter inch risers but I can really turn all the way with half inch risers. They give a smoother ride on tough surfaces and aren't stopped by rocks or sticks. When these wheels hit something small, instead of just going right over it or coming to a complete stop the wheel kicks it out of the way. These are nice wheels for a cruiser with a competitive price!
Awesome wheels, rolls smooth and fast. Quite a conversation starter too! As a guy who has been skating over 35 years I can approve the Shark Wheel!
they are really cool
Great product! Very smooth ride.
smoothest wheals ever
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.
