Shark Wheel Twisted 54mm Street/Park Wheel. These new wheels are one of a kind with improvements in speed and performance over the traditional street wheel.
1st place podium finish at the World Cup Skateboarding (Orchid) on Shark Wheel 54mm Twisted Wheels (Labor Day at the Orchid Skatepark). Leandro Macae - This dude shreds check him out in the video below

These wheels are great. They can’t go through everything because they are still only 54mm but they are definitely better than my spitfires with the same diameter. They are smoother than my spitfires and I am able to ride over wood chips with them. Small pebbles can be pushed out of the way by these shark wheels but large ones can still stop them. I am very happy with these wheels.
I have never had a wheel throw a peebles to the side before. These wheels have already saved me from some embarrassing sudden stop and falls.
These wheels are fantastic for street skating, rolls over small rocks with ease and are great for tricks or casual skating
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.
