While Sydney's CJ Wellsmore has been enjoying our urethane (for both freestyle and aggressive) for the last couple of years; we can now call it official. CJ skates a balanced mix of street, skatepark and big-ramp so wanted a wheel size which was easily adaptable over all disciplines. CJ felt the 60's carried their speed well enough without compromising too much on acceleration. We created the urethane a little harder than our previous wheels so they are faster. The small core still allows for enough give in the urethane to create a good 'footprint' (for grip) and shock absorption.
We spent the best part of a year testing new materials for the hub. We managed to fully extract the colour pigmentation out of the core this time leaving us with a stronger hub material. We also changed the way the hub is bonded to the urethane 'tyre' so the wheel is now more resistant to de-coring. That said, the wheels have a 1 year warranty against de-coring and core fracturing incase you find an anomaly!
With the industry being left with a graveyard of smaller and flatter wheel moulds from the late 90's we are proud to present to you something entirely new. We created this 60mm elliptical wheel mould from scratch.
