Overview
Sometimes you want to maintain grip while flying around a corner, sometimes you want to slide. Most wheels in this durometer range can't slide, but Autobahn's new SlideLine Formula has changed everything.

Designed to let you bounce over rough terrain or throw it sideways for drifting through corners. The Banshee is the first wheel of this type to bear the Autobahn name.

Freeride - Wanna get sideways? If "drifting, heel side standies, pendulums, and Coleman" are part of your vocabulary you're in the right place. For freeride wheels; a smaller contact patch, a stone ground finish, and rounded lip all help them slide easily, right out of the box.

A word to the wise: if you are just getting into freeride try out a smaller size wheel (think 60mm-65mm) with a harder durometer (82a or harder) because it will be easier to break away into a slide, making it easier to practice. Practice slides with friends and try different setups. Will you flat spot your first set of freeride wheels before coring them? Yes. Will they wear unevenly and leave you with a couple bruises? Absolutely. But, it gives you a whole new look at the hills, a whole new freedom. The great Cliff Coleman (father of downhill slide) says, “If you can crouch down and ride a skateboard, then you can learn this slide" as he talks about the classic Coleman slide.

As you gain experience, and speed, you'll find bigger wheels can be better because they will last longer and will be faster on the hill. Different durometers, center-set vs side-set or offset cores, and different urethane formulas will help in different weather/road conditions so make sure you experiment to find your favorites.

Freeride takes you to a new level of skating. Simply put, it's groundbreaking.

Wheel Profile

You may notice a discrepancy between what we designate a wide, standard or narrow and what the brands do. This classification is our opinion based on years of skating, as well as looking at the profile of the wheel as it compares to what we believe is a standard profile. You just have to trust us on this.

Wide - Wide wheels provide more traction and stability at high speed, so you'll be less likely to slip out of your line.

Core Placement

Centerset - Centerset wheels have cores that are placed directly in the center of the wheel, equidistant to the outer edge of each lip. This core placement style gives the most amount of grip because it creates a very large inner lip.

Another advantage of centerset wheels is that they can be flipped inside out to promote even wear and a longer lifespan. For this reason, many freeride wheels have centerset cores paired with small contact patches and round lips.

Wheel Edge

Round Lip - Rounded lips allow the wheel to break traction more easily and offer smoother transitions from grip to slide. Round lip wheels are generally preferred for freeriding.

Surface Type

Stone Ground - Stone ground wheels slide much easier than smooth wheels right out of the box. Stone ground wheels don't have an initial break-in period like smooth wheels, and offer predictable slides without having to wear down the wheel surface.

Wheel Features

SlideLine SL Formula - Poured at the legendary Aend factory, these are not your run-of-the-mill cruiser wheels. Designed soft enough to let you bounce over obstacles and hard enough for slides. Perfect for any cruiser or performance longboard.

Durometer

82a - Soft with plenty of grip. You'll be able to smoothly roll over rough surfaces without getting hung-up on cracks or small rocks. These wheels are slightly harder than the standard 78a/80a's and have a faster roll speed. They transition easily into slides and have a tendency to glide across the surface of the road, making them wear slowly, but generally don't offer as much control as softer wheels. Ideal for cruising, carving, freeride, and downhill.

Urethane skate wheels generally range from 75a-101a, the numbers increase with the hardness of the wheel.

Suggested Riser Size (in)

This is the riser size we suggest using if you want to avoid wheel bite, essentially the larger the diameter of the wheel the more likely you are to get wheel bite if you don't add risers of this size to your complete, so the larger the wheels the larger the riser required.

Autobahn Banshee SlideLine Skateboard Wheels
I really like these wheels. They provide a super smooth ride and are still very grippy. I haven't done any slides on my cruiser yet, but these maintain speed very well.

I've been able to handle rocks and cracks with ease.
