Default 125mm wheel info compendium

This thread is for holding the current details of 125mm wheels.

Here's the list I've made from reports from other people. [I've not skated many of these wheels, so I'm just compiling the data I've seen as best I can.] Corrections, additions etc are very welcome - but please no third/fourth-hand data. Please report only what you know first-hand from having skated the wheel yourself. [Or perhaps a report from a friend who directly skated them. But not a friend of a friend who knows a guy who was related to some dude who saw a cute spandex-wearing chick who skated them.]

If you want to simply discuss 125 wheels, why not use the following thread, rather than cluttering this one up?

I'll update this list as I can.

Matter G13: excellent
Matter CodeWhite: Excellent
Matter: One20Five: Quite good-to-excellent
Matter: One20Five: *LTE* substantially worse than the, now standard, One20Five
MPC [Black magic?]: Very Good-to-Excellent
RollX X-Road: Middling Good.
Atom Boom Road 125: Middling Good.
Mota 125 Hybrid: Mostly unknown, but reported to have a short life where they perform well. [And perhaps manufactured poorly.]
MPC [Street fight]: Kinda dog-ish, not great. [This isn't a dual-band wheel.]


Matter Code White
Matter G13 [Reportedly short life, break-down quickly.]
Matter One20Five
Lethal X F2 (green)
Bont Red Magic Hardcore (aluminum hubs)
Atom Boom Road 125: Not great. Slow. [Or pretty awful, depending on who is talking... "horrid roll and spoke vibration"]
Mota 125 Hybrid: Mostly unknown, but reported to have a short life where they perform well. [And perhaps manufactured poorly.]

Notes: With the Matter wheels indoors, it depends on the length of the race that dictates what wheels I use. Short races are the One20Five. The band in the One20Five tends to get rubbery in longer indoor races. G13 wheels are awesome when new, but seems to break down quickly.

Hope that's useful to people looking at wheels.
