This is great news. I'm all for new products to try. I'm a bit skint right now but when I'm a bit more cashed up I want to experiment with different wheels for the floor where I'm learning to play roller derby. The floor is always pretty dirty and the slipperiest I can remember skating on. I'm an ex-speed skater, and using 88A radar flat-outs I slide round the corners.

That's Backspin Urethane and a Backspin hub.

I developed both the urethane and the hub for our factory (I now own part of the factory in China where we make all our products).


We made those and sold them to a another company in Hong Kong.


It definitely is an amazing compound and hub. Buy all the wheels you can!


Best wishes, Craig!

so are the backspins going to be just as soft or are they going to be offered in a harder urethane first?

I can't believe one would ask that or be interested when they have basically the same wheel here for half the price lol...

That green urethane is 85a to 87a and is an older formula.

The new stuff we have coming out is much different.

Lots of inside info going on here. I am not really clear on who is selling what?
I am just interested in great wheels. I do not care who makes it.
I think asking about Backspin wheels is perfectly cool.
I would also like to know what is coming out and when. Exactly what are the specs on each wheel.
I have seen many forums taken over by product sales people. You risk killing your own products.

Please just give us buyers the correct and exact info!!!!

PS. I have gotten no response from anabolic. Very disappointing.

I didn't receive a PM but my new account is still a bit goofy. I just sent you a PM. Let me know if you don't get it. My personal email is craig_whisman@yahoo.com. So if you don't reach me here, drop me a line there. This will all be much easier once I set up my shopping cart on my web site. I got my tax ID number today!!!!!

I pm'd back. Thank you again and look forward to hearing from you.
Matthew


I am looking forward to trying these wheels. I am sure I will find creative ways to incorporate them into my set up.

Thumbs up Anabolix First night with the MNRG!!!

Two sets were released to two skaters tonight. One used all 8 of them.. the other.. used them as pusher wheels...running them on the left side of the skate. The skaters are.. Suzi Smashbox.. who was on the cover of the last USARS Magazine... **the one in green**. The other skater.. is Angelfire. Feel free to check them out on http://www.minnesotarollergirls.com under teams..*Garda's*

Though this floor is not know for slippage..these wheels had a very tight grip. They are very grippy indeed.. and slow. I am wondering if they would be great for just running as pushers.. or all 8?? Time will tell

These wheels will get the REAL test this weekend in California.. and I will post the skaters feed back on them soon.

One great advantage that I think was unforseen.


The floor tonight was EXTRA dirty. I mean.. there was coating a nice tar like black on EVERY wheel spinning.... EXCEPT.. the Anabolix. They were still shinny green.

My White G Rods were completely covered with Black S***. I have a nice 2 hours cleaning job coming up now. OOOOh goodie. The Anabolix appeared to not gather ANY floor junk like the other wheels were..

Break in time .. there was none. These wheels gripped the instant they hit the floor. Other skaters were trying combos of NEW Fugatives.. and were having major issues until they started to break in.

Those skaters using the Anabolix as pushers w/ fugatives found they were able to hold the fugatives with just the pusher set up.

So far.. so good

Strange, you said in your last post that the backspin is a totally different urethane maybe to justify a doubling in cost? But you also said what is quoted above. The price the AnaboliX are selling for is a much more reasonable price.

Using fugatives as outside wheels? That seems redundant. If you have such a grippy wheel (anabolix) as a pusher, wouldn't you want a fast wheel on the outside?

Laughs.. are you saying a Fugative is a grippy wheel?



Ah.. I personally think they stink...and arent worth the plastic they were created with..

BUT.. the thoughts are.. is using Grippy/like wheels.. in differnet configs.. to see what is gonna grip out there.. this was a try em and ROUGH them up practice..so they arent breaking them in at the tourney..

I dont think any thing over a 92A is gonna offer much grip.. BUT.. they wont know till they get there.

G rods.. or d rods.. maybe... I think tantrums are in that area possible too..

I went heavy into grip.. its my opinion that in extremes.. where your on a super slick floor.. Grip.. far exceed Roll.. in need.
