Depends on the weight. I'm a male with nearly 80 kg.

Ditto! I am on Either grey or clear green (depending on which pair of skates) and would go to a softer cushion if there were one. I'm @ 220-225lbs, but been skating these cushions since I was 275ish.

On a Ring?

Maybe it is because I use the Ring only outdoors.

I'm ~77Kg and use my Roll Lines outdoors lots, with Lazer Blaze wheels too, but my Giottos have a higher deck height

I missed that detail.. sorry!
I'm on Variants and Drivers here, so geometry is a tad different. I do indoors and outdoors on them.

must have the suspension set way hard to run 70mm on a ring. designed for a 62mm (or smaller)figure wheel with no issues used for doing figures...64mm will fit BUT if you start backing off the suspension they will bite into the boot.

there are other posts on SL with the same conclusion
