The Sector 9 Race Formula 71mm longboard wheels deliver all the downhill thrills without the frills. The 61mm contact patch provides great grip for cornering, while the offset, fiberglass infused Cosmic Core enhances slide control and increases roll speed.

Ride Style

Downhill - To go fast and stay in control, you want a big wheel with a lot of contact with the pavement.

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.

Core Placement

Offset - The most popular; offset cores offer a more forgiving slide initiation and hookup, while still providing ample grip and control in your slide.

Wheel Edge

Square Lip - The most grip allowing you to carve deeper and take tight lines around corners without worrying about losing traction.

Surface Type

Smooth - The natural shiny finish provides extra grip for railing corners and is more responsive when pumping/carving compared to wheels with a stone ground finish.

Wheel Features

Race Formula - This is Sector 9's fastest and most evenly wearing urethane compound.

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.

Sector 9 Race Formula 71mm Longboard Wheels - white (75a)
I love the white but aesthetics aside these wheels offer very good traction and cruising/carving is a blast. Going to start doing a little freestyle with them. I also ordered the 78a version which I havent tried yet since the 75a's are so durable!! Recommended.

Sector 9 Race Formula 71mm Longboard Wheels
This set of wheels alone are good for certain people but I would not really recommend them too many of the longboarders that like to race it has great downhill speed but going uphill with the plastic centers in Florida Heat will crack in less than a month and a half give or take I went through three of these sets of Wheels just to test my theory and they do horrible on hot days the plastic will destroy the urethane highly unrecommended

Plays as a great downhill and cruising/carving wheel with its soft urethane and sharp lips. Would def recommend! Keep in mind that not all boards can easily support a wheel with such a large contact patch though
