Talking Labeda Psych(s)

Greetings,

I'm returning to skating after a 20+ year absence.

I have a set of Lebeda Psych on my old skates but cannot find anyting on the hardness. They worked great at Oaks Park in Portland Oregon and that's a wood floor with a hard finish. They don't do so well on a plastic coated floor as it's soft.

I'm just looking for any information on these wheels.



Thanks in advance
~Vincent

Thumbs up Welcome back.

A lot has changed in the last 20 years. I will say I sold the only set of Psyches I had back in 02 or 03. They sucked on the roll on coated cement floor we were rolling @ the time.

I have no clue as to what the durometer was when new, nor do I know if it has drifted over the years. Most Poly BD wheels get harder as they age..

Maybe one of the other members has the info you want however, durometer is the least of your worries on wheels that old.

Oh, one other thing. Floor coatings have changed dramatically over the last 20 years. The current "Roll On" is no where near the product it used to be. Gotta be green and all. VOCs are bad, so they say.

Default Thanks!

I've been back skating for 1.5 years now but found my old skates while moving.

I was reading that the Psych is still a sought after wheel for certain floors. I can't use on the current floor as I have no traction but my Cosmic Super Fly 90a grip just fine.

Now I'm thinking of moving up to a harder wheel for less grip and more sliding for skating and stops.

Default Try here.

www.coreyskates.com Best wheels on the planet...

BTW there are a lot of crazies out there lusting after all sorts of old school wheels. I have a couple of sets of Interceptors and some Sims Vipers I roll. Otherwise it's Aussie Scott Corey.
