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.
Great value, extra fast shipping
I tend to have extremely high expectations of new things only to end up disappointed, but these wheels were far beyond what I had hoped for. There is a rough hill near my home that always vibrates my legs into numbness but with these wheels it almost felt like riding on a sidewalk.
l I very much love these wheels and I have had mine for about a year now. however when I first got them I realized the the inside of the wheel rubbed against the inside of my truck but so i was able to loosen the wheel slightly and it works better. if there was anything i would change it would be to make these wheels more affordable and correct the wheels so they don't rub against the inside of the truck. Otherwise I give these Wheels an A+ rating for speed and how they handle rough terrain.
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.
