They should have named these wheels the Flu because they r sick with it! The only thing that has been able to slow my roll is super chunky gravel and I've only been stopped in my tracks twice both times were by big ace pinecones
Bought the sidewinders for my drop tuck was so impressed I bought makos for my pin tail combined with the pro series bearings fastest I’ve ever gone smooth as silk too
Proably the smoothest wheels ive ever ridden on, when riding on a bumpy sidewalk or road it definitely dampens it significantly versus regular 80a durometer wheels. The shape smooth ens the ride significantly. So your question to yourself, should i get them? YES! dont doubt yourself get them their awesome and they turn heads.
These 70 mm Makos are the Bees Knees, I live out in a small town with really rough roads that tear up wheels and make it extremely exhausting to push around but that's no longer a problem since I discovered shark wheels they are all they advertise to be and more. A serious game changer, they got my business for life
I bought these to cruise around the neighbourhood and in college. These wheels by far gave me the smoothest ride ever. Not only that, it rolled longer and farther. Definitely recommend
I put thesee on my 2013 arbor zeppelin. they're replacing the original 72mm 78a wheels that came on the board. The difference in the smoothness of the ride is pretty noticeable right away. definitely a smoother ride on anything that isn't smooth. I'd get these if you're wheels are worn out but probably not worth replacing brand new wheels with these.
Smooth ride. I really enjoy using these wheels on my longboard and will be ordering more in the future.
The moment I saw these Shark Wheels on a re-run of Shark Tank...I was hooked. I am very pleased with my purchase. Haven't ridden them too much yet, but i have definitely noticed they are faster and smoother than conventional wheels, go over cracks in the sidewalk easier too. And what a conversation piece! Friends, and strangers alike, have been blown away from just the look alone! Zak and Chad were very helpful with me to make sure I ordered the right wheels that would work best for me. I actually got a new Hosoi deck and the guys at my local Vans shop were also stoked over my Sidewinders on my 10" wide board and Indy 215's! Anyone who is contemplating purchasing these wheels you will be very satisfied you did. I recommend getting new "pro style" bearings as well, to ensure you get the best less friction ride possible!

I love these wheels. They seem to be wearing rather quickly but they are the smoothest wheels i have ever ridden. They ride so nicely and i have gotten my friends to switch to them after riding them.
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.
