First, I haven't had the wheels long enough to give them a fare performance review, but I can say a couple things. First, the wheels have a cool humming sound. There is less surface area in contact with the road and above 15 mph they get a little squirrley and feel like they want to drift. At slower speeds they do have a lot of grip and work great mounted on a carving board. I haven't had the opportunity to try them on wet pavement yet. I'm not sure I would make this purchase based on performance alone. Honestly, I bought these wheels for looks and for looks alone they're worth the coin. They look amazing! Congrats to the inventor! For looks and originality alone, I really like these wheels. Think about it, it's hard to find anything these days with some originality, much less a wheel. I have a Sectore 9 Striker ll sidewinder that I sanded and painted a dragonfly on. It's original and I wanted a cool set of wheels to finish it off. Very unique indeed. I think orange would look better, don't you? These wheels kick ____! :)
Everyone asks me how my board can roll with square wheels, and i laugh and say, "better than yours"
I have to say I'm impressed so far. The wheels really do work better. They roll faster and they make rough payment much smoother. I would say these are def for cruising only, but wow they handle just about everything you throw at them. I like to use my longboard to commute around town and I always run into rough roads and alleyways. These wheels seem to really smooth out rough patches and glide right over. If these wheels last they will be my go to from here on out. I love them so far.
Great Wheels! Unique Design and Apparently, it makes your longboard much safer to ride! :) I have people constantly asking me if they can ride my board with the wheels. Very High Quality riding, and Amazing Grip. Better than a regular longboard wheels and definitely smoother on the road.I purposely rode my board across a road with little rocks, and the shark wheels literally kicked the rocks out of the way.I Would Buy way more if the price wasn't so high. but I already have three sets haha
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.
