Shamans have extremely well made hubs. They wont be slow.

Though I recommend royal assassins.

At that weight pink (red) or white would be more appropriate in most cases.

I'd go with the Shamans. The RBT 101s are very hard. For me they can cause numbness due to vibration unless the floor is very smooth. Might be OK on a plywood/plastic or concrete/plastic floor.

The width is great, I've skated 44,42,40,36(rbt), and 30mm wide wheels. RBT profile wheels are my favorite. they have a wider stance than a 36mm wide wheel, as the inside of the hubs have a small degree of offset.

Shamans are very heavy. Good hubs though, better than RBT's if you ask me.


If your looking at 97 - 101A RBT's and willing to shell out 150 MSRP I highly recommend going on Bont's website and ordering assassins in the 95A hardness. More grip than a 97A RBT, more roll, more than 3 times as durable, and an ounce lighter per wheel. That's 1/4 pound of ROTATING weight. Its a ridiculous difference.


To give a perspective of how much better these wheels are than RBT's, I can outrun all my friends I skate with when I am wearing my 97A RBT's. IF they use my assassins' I can't out run them, they outrun me.

Them Royal Assassins. The hype is real, but so is the wheel

I treat them like trash, but they love me anyway. They don't show the scars of my abuse. Not yet anyway

With what he has got, he will need new bearings for the Royal Assassins.

Default I weigh 230#

The duro will also depend on how good the floor is. IF it is a loose slippery floor, the Greens are good. Any lower duro and they will bog down. If the floor is excellent and grippy, run the white shamans. Also it depends on how you skate. The red shamans are just not as good, always felt too soft for me. I have had 2 sets of greens and have not been disappointed. The urethane is very good too, lasts a lot longer than the stuff I used to skate on, anabolix, the tire. I bought used green shamans with tread on them and they tread lasted about 8 months, I could wear the tread off of The Tire in about 8 to 9 sessions. The tire was very good on grip for their hardness however. Roller Bones did not come out with a wide speed type wheel so I just never bought any.

Guys,I really appreciate everyone's input thus far.i just wanted to touch base and let you know that I pulled the trigger on a set of RBT 101a's at last nights session.i can tell you that my experiences were exactly like what was posted on here before by (Riedellsk8r).these whees blew me away right out of the box.and as stated before,they just got better as the session wore on.i just wanted to say that if your in the 220lbs plus club and you want a fast,predictable wheel,then this is it!!
