As I stated in previous posts, in my neighborhood the asphalt is really rough and like to use really soft wheels. Until now I was using cruiser wheels that worked well but where too big (60mm) and of an inadequate shape. Plus they are quite heavy, which doesn’t help with my ollies.
So i looked for wheels that were at the same time soft, small enough and preferably cheap. I know Bones makes some pretty nice old school wheels for rough terrain wisely called Rough Rider but I couldn’t find them at a good price. But I tried something different, I found wheels originally made for quad rollers that were only 58mm big and with a soft durometer (78a). As they were pretty cheap (around 15€ a set) I bought them, I dont risk much.
As you can see on the picture bellow, they look more like regular skateboard wheels than the Penny style wheels I used until now.
I just tried them and they are really grippy and shock-absorbing but more controllable than the larger ones, they are pretty bouncy which is weird at first but you get used to it. If you are interested they are Powerslide “905206”.
If you like to use soft wheel and know better products, let me know !
