The Spitfire 80HD Chargers Conical skateboard wheels are shaped for quicker response in a performance urethane formula that's soft and smooth. Spitfire's 80HD formula prevents unwanted flex that occurs in other wheels of the same durometer. Essentially these wheels won't flex like most soft wheels, giving you the best of both worlds and a crazy smooth ride.
Wide - Wide wheels provide more traction and stability at high speed, so you'll be less likely to slip out of your line.
80a - Soft with plenty of grip. You'll be able to smoothly roll over rough surfaces without getting hung-up on cracks or small rocks. These wheels are slightly harder than the standard 78a and are easier to initiate into slides and drifts. They offer great slide control and are more durable, but won't slow you down as quickly as 78a wheels. Ideal for cruising, carving, freeride, and downhill. Also a good filming duro as its a bit faster than some of the softer varieties.
Urethane skate wheels generally range from 75a-101a, the numbers increase with the hardness of the wheel.
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.
80HD - These 80HDs are an exclusive 80 durometer high density speed urethane that cuts out unwanted wheel flex usually found in other soft wheels. These things are fast, soft and out of control.
Conical Shape - A true performance conical shape, hand cut for quick response and less weight.
