Default 125mm Atom Boom Road vs Infinity Plus vs Matter Image

Im looking for a reasonably priced set of 125 mm wheels for long outdoor speed skating cruises. Any opinions on which ones are the fastest between Atom Boom Road, PowerSlide Infinity Plus and Matter Image?

I've only used the Atom Boom's 125's. That are rather slow. Not horribly slow but you are not going to be winning any races. It is comfortable ride with too much flex. Grip and wear are reasonable.

Thanks for the info. That matches what others have said about the Boom. I currently skate the Atom Matrix but cracked one hub from riding off a curb so im not too impressed with them.

Im probably going to try the Matter Images. Only single durometer but Im hoping that since i mostly go straight it would be fine.

I have skated on Image. yeah just fine for cruises. Not reactive as one20five, but more damping...

I would agree. I just got them this weekend. They are great at speed but take a little bit more effort getting there. Does feel a bit squishy at times and lagging. Not bad for the price though
