Overview
Slimeballs are back! Santa Cruz found the original mold, the urethane formula, the "warpaint" graphic, the logo and the trademark. Same as it ever was in the original wheel shape and formula made in the 1980s.

The 97a Slimeball Big Balls formula blend is poured in a reversible dead center bearing and no flex edge radius lip design, resulting in the fastest on command slide-able, slip-to-grip ratio wheel available. No chipping, no coning, no bearing seat stretch, no softening and no speed loss.

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.

Surface

Smooth - Smooth wheels have less surface friction than treaded wheels and are easier to slide.

Durometer (Hard to Soft)

97a - A versatile wheel best used for rougher terrain like craggy streets, ditches or pools or even masonite and metal ramps. Hard enough that sliding is still doable while soft enough for a smooth roll and plenty of grip. Great for beginning riders until they gain the control needed for harder durometers.

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