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

83b - Most urethane skate wheel durometers (hardness of a wheel) range from 75a-101a, the higher the number the harder the wheel.

While most industry skate wheels use the standard “a” scale when determining wheel hardness, the “b” scale is 20 points lower than your typical “a” scale, meaning the hardness of an 83b wheel would in turn equal a 103a in hardness which would be beyond the limitations of the “a” scale.

Details

Gumball Core - Powerflex's 55 durometer core not only allows for a great spin, but it also absorbs more shock than what a single pour 83B/101A wheel ever could.

Slow/Slippery On The Street

Powerflex Gumball Core Skateboard Wheels
I had high hopes for these but on the street these were a complete let down. The manufacturing quality is stellar and the cores are the perfect width to keep your bearings/spacers aligned perfectly. Unfortunately, as soon as I left my perfectly smooth driveway and hit the actual road they were so incredibly slow. They also felt less forgiving on cracks and pebbles than other 83B wheels I've skated. They were also a bit slippery as I lost control and slid out several times when turning or cornering. The softer "gumball" core doesn't seem to do anything other than make them slower. They may perform better at the skatepark in perfect conditions but we don't have one here so I can't report on that. In the end I felt like I wasted $40.

a 54 that rides like a 56!

Powerflex Gumball Core Skateboard Wheels
they take a bit of the edge off of rougher pavement and give a (surprisingly) noticeably smoother and faster ride even on good skatepark concrete, while still being hard enough for plenty of powerslides and reverts without flatspotting any more than bones stf/spf. definitely my favorite wheels to date!
