The 65mm Top Shelf longboard wheels are freeride specific with a centerset Cosmic Core and a slim contact patch. Just because these wheels aren't Race Formula or Shredthane, doesn't mean they're not high quality urethane. In fact, the Top Shelf formula is preferred by many of Sector 9's team riders for freeride/downhill action.
- Set of 4 Wheels
- Round Lip
- Top Shelf Formula
- Cosmic Core
Freeride - Wanna get sideways? Features like smaller contact patches, a stone ground finish and rounded lips all help these wheels slide easily, right out of the cellophane.
Carving/Cruising - Carving/cruising wheels meet the needs of many different skate disciplines but generally, have a good roll speed and are soft enough to handle craggy streets riddled with cracks and rocks.
Centerset - The hubs in these wheels are set equidistant from the lips, resulting in an even wear and a controlled slide.
Word to the wise: They can be rotated (like your car's tires) to promote even wear and a longer lifespan.
Round Lip - Breaks traction more easily and offers smoother transitions from grip to slide. Round lip wheels are generally preferred for freeriding.
Smooth - The natural finish provides the best grip for railing corners and is more responsive when pumping/carving compared to wheels with a stone ground finish.
Top Shelf Formula - Sector 9's premium quality Urethane formula that provides you with an ultra-smooth and evenly wearing wheel to keep you rolling for years to come.
Cosmic Core - The Cosmic core increases roll speed and provides better control through slides.
78a - The most common durometer we see amongst cruiser wheels. They have great grip for cornering and easily roll over cracks, small rocks and the like.
