#1

I’m currenly looking into a few wheels:

Do you have experiance with one of these ? Please tell us what you found was good/bad about them.
If you have some other wheels, feel free to inform us about them too.

Regards :wink: !

Kegel 80a forever <3


#4

i have kegels and pulleys for sale is you’re interested :slight_smile:


#5

Already have the pulley, also i need to purchase from within EU… hate the import duties


#6

no problem, good luck!


#7

The Orangatang kegel is a fine wheel. Rides pretty smoothly.

I personally felt like the enertion power wheel is too hard of a duro. Sometimes, I felt like questioning “Am I riding my normal board or a long board?”, cause the road vibrations go right through them to your board and thus your feet.

The Abec 11 on the other hand is a dream wheel. I felt like I was riding on clouds lol. It’s upper smooth and nice to ride.


#8

Wishing* my Raptor came with the softer Abec’s (or if this had been an option at checkout). Which density Flywheels are you using/do you recommend, the 75a/78a/81a’s?


#9

78a. They are great wheels imo.


#10

Evolve gt wheels are great too, though a bit overpriced


#11

78a seems pretty low, what is the lowest duro meter you’ll go ?
Cause I’d think that a lower durometer = less stability on higher speeds ? (or more since you’ll glide better over pebbles etc?)


#12

@ikjahaa Here’s a link to some great flywheels clones for cheap. 80A Durometer and a variety of colors! Check em’



#13

“.com” :disappointed_relieved:

import duties are pretty high from US to EU…


#14

those have thicker spokes which wont work with most abec pulleys unless you file it down. Compare to the real deal.


#15

currently i still have the older enertion pulley…


#16

Can’t even ship to those to EU


#17

usually your pulley will determine your wheel (if you have a pulley already).

I typically prefer the Abec Flywheel and clones - simply for flexibility. Able to run 76-83-90-97 all w/ the same wheel gear!

I have both the clone 83’s on GF’s board, and ran the legit flywheel 97’s. I feel like the clones are a bit harder duro, but not by much. Breaking them in they ride great. I have some kegels too and should have some gears for them to try and compare.

Duro is only part of the equation - size of wheels makes a huge difference depending on the surfaces you plan to skate (super smooth or rough/cracks/beat-to-crap roads). Good shock pads or risers and setting up with correct bushings (for your weight) all help!

GL!


#18

I get the flywheel clones plus bearings for 24 bux. You cant beat the price!


#19

You are still selling those? I thought u sold them


#20

Nope, no takers yet :frowning:


#21

90mm 78A Flywheels. Definitely the “real deal”. Can’t beat em’

80/83mm wheels are fine for shorter rides and shorter pavement, but if you ride for hours and have a little more varied terrain, I rec going with 90’s. They damp the vibrations a little more and can handle little rocks and bumps better. Expansion joints too.
