WORDS FROM THE OWNER:
SWEET! This is the icing on the cake for my custom deck. They look even better in person
Really enjoy the product
Really, like this crazy wheel,rolls great
Great buy !! Smooth ride !!!
"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 got these on 10/31/16 these have fixed so many problems I have had traveling my city. The paths are really old and, broken it just cruises over everything. I have not fallen once since I got these they are so smooth it makes world of difference.
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.
