Just received these Transparent Amber DNA wheels. This is my third set of Shark Wheels and they are awesome! (I'm replacing the wheels on all my boards with SWs.) They roll great, feel great, look great! I started the process of replacing all my wheels after I hit some gravel on the road, had wheel bite, fell and broke my wrist. Shark Wheels handle small rocks, dirt VERY well. Had I had SWs on my longboard, I would not have fallen or broken my wrist. I highly recommend them.
Everything about Shark Wheels in general is on point. The only issue i have is these wheels are not quite as bright as the picture shows. Still look great, but I think they added more light to the photo? Who cares, these wheels make you a man!
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.
