Exactly what I wanted
These wheels are great, and the added free Abec9 bearings made the purchase all the sweeter. Switched them onto my deck and used my old wheels on my spare board, and tried it out just this morning, and they go over bumps on the street better, and also I seem to roll for longer too. All in all a great purchase.
This is my 5th set of Shark Wheels and in my opinion the best yet. I can't say enough about these wheels, they change the game and take skating to a whole new level. From downhill to the park, there's nothing like Shark!
The ride was super smooth. I’d rocks, sand or anything was in my way I still rode over it smooth and barely lost any speed
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.
