The Santa Cruz SlimeBall Maggots re-issue skateboard wheels are classic cruisers brought back from the dead by popular demand. The wide contact patch and soft 78a urethane promise smooth, stable lines on any surface.
Wide - Wide wheels provide more traction and stability at high speed, so you'll be less likely to slip out of your line.
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.
78a - Soft and gooey, this is the most common durometer we see in the longboard/cruiser wheel world. These wheels have great grip for cornering and easily rolls over cracks, small rocks, and rough surfaces without tripping you up. When sliding, 78a wheels have a tendency to smear across the surface of the road, offer great control, slow you down rapidly, wear quickly, and leave thane lines. Ideal for cruising, carving, freeride, and downhill.
Urethane skate wheels generally range from 75a-101a, the numbers increase with the hardness of the wheel.
