The G-Slides were built from the ground up to improve roll speed, slide-ability and durability. They have a low profile and feel at home on any type of deck set-up. Push, slap, grind, bomb and slide the hell out of them. Yes, they slide.
Wide - Wide wheels provide more traction and stability at high speed, so you'll be less likely to slip out of your line.
Smooth - Smooth wheels have a shiny coating on their surface that is commonly referred to as its skin or mold release. Smooth wheels are generally preferred for their grip and traction.
Soft Slide Formula (SFS) - The Soft Slide Formula (SSF) is faster rolling, and will outlast anything currently on the market. Super fast, incredibly durable, and they slide. SSF is a new paradigm, opening up even more of your concrete and asphalt cityscapes, roads, and hills to skating.
85a - Hard for a "soft wheel". These wheels have a fast roll speed and plenty of grip for pushing around town but are likely to lose traction around tight corners. You'll be able to roll over rough surfaces without getting hung-up on cracks or small rocks, but the wheels will absorb less vibrations than a softer wheel. Ideal for technical freeride because they transition into slides very easily, slide quickly, and wear slowly. Also a good filming duro as it's a bit faster than some softer varieties.
Urethane skate wheels generally range from 75a-101a, the numbers increase with the hardness of the wheel.
