Default What's up with this?

Hello aggressive skaters! I've got a question. What's up with this?
Is there something new happening in your world? Do people put 80mm wheels in middle now!? (I can understand the hard durometer, but 80mm?) So, aren't you guys still anti-rockered, or is there something new going on?

Just checking in from the rockered world. Thanks

Hello there!

2 things you need to take into consideration when looking at that listing:

1. A “new” or rather retro style in the aggressive world called Powerblading, which means using a flat setup of larger wheel in diameter (e.g. 72mm \ 76mm \ 80mm...) usually for commuting to skateparks and then changing the frame to an anitrocker frame, or just using your beloved aggressive boot for fast city skating (although of course you can find some crazy skaters doing crazy tricks even with flat setup - but it’s usually harder than antirocker).

2. the second thing about this listing, that part which confused you (“especially for the middle frame positions”) referring to the option for using the first and last wheels in softer durometer (e.g. 85A) and the two middle wheels in harder durometer (94A) -but all 4 wheels in the same size (80mm)- the harder durometer in the middle will help with not getting stuck when you grind\slide...

That’s my knowledge in the matter anyway, although I’m not an aggressive skater yet.

Exactly right!

I roll bake frames with 72mm and just ordered some hard UMHW plastic antirockers that are 62mm tall.

Can't wait to lose the wheel bite!
