It's not a bad wheel, but I personnaly prefer the Krypos CR62
I was going to ask if you ever tried the Atom Road Hogs?
they are pretty big, 66mm x 38mm 78A but look lighter than Radar Pures
wow, 5 sets of Kryptos, your good for a while !
ha ha, no wonder the rest of us can't find them !

nice collection
you don't ride these wheels ?

i've never tested the road hog, it's hard to find in France ans very expensive (80 euros for 8 wheels, more of less the price of a classic K !).

the road hogs are much less here in the US, probably because they are made here. but if they don't ride the same or better than my Kyptos 62mm or 65mm it's still a waste of money.

Until this summer, my last 24 years of skating have been indoors. In April, 2014, Roller Odyssey had its last roll. The nearest rink from my home is 204 miles, round trip.

My last few sessions have taken place on a clay tennis court, 22 miles from home. My friend brings her boom box and a broom; I bring my Ryobi battery powered leaf blower to clear the dust, insects, and gravel thrown through the fence from the nearby playground.

Using an old set of Hyper reevo, dance wheels, 93A, 57mm, small plastic hub, I get fantastic grip on this clay surface. I tried my Roll-Line panthers but just as a large wheel with little rubber on a car delivers a harder ride, the panthers really transmitted the imperfections in the clay. Whereas, the reevo dance were a dream. I could do spins and reverse spread eagles with ease. Actually everything I know how to do was easy and pleasantly surprising.

However, I still miss the energy of a good indoor session. Come cold, wet, weather, what am I gonna do?

I totaling agree with the Roll-Lines, "just as a large wheel with little rubber on a car delivers a harder ride". on the positive side, Roll-Lines are super light ! I just can't use them outside, at all.

You got it!.

Gotta have some cushioning effect when outside. If you dont then the smallest imperfections come close to a wheels maximum loterance of road imperfections. I like about 1/2" of urethane covering the hub. Duro around 78-84A. Rebound is king here. Granted not all wheels have the same rebound % at an identical hardness/thickness. The difference can easily be felt by putting 4 of a kind on each skate and rolling over some rough asphalt. Theres often an obvious difference between a mediocre wheel and a good wheel.

Some users on here dont believe in rebound and call it wasted energy, but outdoors it wastes the least amount. If a vibration or impact is to be taken in by the skate the wheel will do it most effectively. Anything else absorbing those impacts and vibrations will lose much more speed.

Honestly I dont know how much urethane the "outdoor" wheels have covering their hubs though.
