I’ve been riding on 83mm flywheel clones and ready to make the upgrade to Abec 11 wheels.
I thought I wanted to go with 97mm Abec 11 wheels but I read @sl33py post about the 107mm new Superfly wheels from Abec11, that seems amazing. I am running dual 6374 motors with torqueboard extended 218mm trucks so it should be possible with a 12mm belt setup.
Both wheels are in stock on the french Evolves site and I can’t decide what to go with. If I decide to go for the new Superfly I will have to get a 40T pulley.
Has anyone tried riding these new wheels?
What are your thoughts, 97mm Abec11 Flywheels vs 107mm Abec11 Superfly?
I read about a potential group buy on the wheels, any updates on that?
you could even fit 15mm belts / pulleys. i’ve got these 107mm superflys, 218mm TB trucks, dual 6374 TB motors and there is still ample space.
i’ve been going on and on about these wheels:
Nice! You are riding enertion motor mounts right?
After seeing those monsters on, I am leaning towards the Superfly. Chrischaputt also said the riding feels on those are reallt good
Seems like you got unbranded, where did you get them?
Or you could wait for the new 97mm SuperFlys
I put the 107mm superflys on my evolve Gt and met up with about 10 other evolve riders. Everyone who tried the superflys really liked them.
i contacted ChrisChaput directly, went to Abec headquarters here in southern california and picked them up directly.
i know you don’t have that luxury so i’m afraid you’ll just have to wait for them to become available in EU.
@E-Boarding there are 97mm Superfly comming?
@thisguyhere The french evolve distributor has the 107mm Superfly in stock ready to ship for the EU-customers, but they are like 200€
Geez. Not sure if they’re 200€ good. I got them for 120$
sickboards.nl have 97mm and 107mm in stock atm.
A little bit cheaper there, 185€…
@ChrisChaput You said this in another post:
regarding a possible group buy.
How many people would you need to make a group buy possible for the poeple on the forum?
97’s will do just fine, thank you
I’ve been riding 97’s genuines for a while and have tried evolves 83 mm flywheel clones, generic clones of all sizes, mbs wheels, and nothing compares to genuine 97’s . I imagine the 107’s are even better, but haven’t tried yet but i trust they are also superb. No wheels are as smooth as genuine flywheels, and i say that without exaggeration. You’ve got a hard choice to make but I don’t think you can go wrong with either.
I would love to try the Superflys but I really don’t want to go over 90mm.
then wait for the 90mm SuperFlys
Hill climbing torque.
I’m already running 15/40 gears with 90s and I don’t want to give up any Torque.
I like my downhill decks and I’m already running 1/2" risers to avoid wheel bite.
Both good points.
But I bet you’re a big guy, for those us that are sticks it works well.
I run 107mm supaflys, 15/40 pulleys, dual 6374 and it bombs up hill no issues.
Also no wheelbite on free ride decks:
And I like the look and feel of down hill decks
Also I like the responsiveness of smaller wheels.
I was running 83’s for a while.
