So… Yeah… This happened to my wheels after my second day of riding. There already was some chunking after my first day of riding also but it was like half of what it is now so I didn’t really think much about it, but this is a bit much I think.
I don’t think I was being particularly hard on them or anything, I rode them on some asphalt with with some small rocks maybe and some pavement bricks, not gravel roads or something like that.
Maybe calling this extensive is a bit much, I don’t really know, never had any other esk8 or longboard but this is definitely not what I was expecting. From what I read some peoples urethane wheels last for literally hundreds or thousands of miles. This happened after maybe 25 miles…
So that’s my first couple of days of experience with esk8
I saw some other people here are also using blue caguamas, anyone care to share their experience?
This. If someone modifies a compoinant the has issues with the component those issues are of no statistical value.
@Hexagon I feel for you on the chunking, acetone is always a no no on wheels. Youc can usually do a bit of sanding. Maybe try ABEC Flywheels, Boa Wheels or TB 110 wheels. They are made for esk8 and will likely perform much better for you.
My blue caguamas are fine, and I’ve ridden on quite bad pavement with them. I’m thinking of doing a small wheel comparison later on when I have a board I can swap wheels easier on, because I bought Popoca 90mm wheels for my brother and oh lord are they bouncy!
