For most builders In the world of esk8, performance matters! I suppose that’s why we all like to build our own rigs?
Lately, there has been lots of debate about performance & wheel size & design for electric skateboards. I found it very interesting to learn that the fastest speed on a non-powered electric skateboard was achieved using 73mm wheels with minimal urethane thickness!
This is what they say: The larger core adds to the performance by supporting the wheel and maintaining it’s shape under serious high speed and weight loads. This helps both maintain exit speed, and straight-line acceleration.
These wheels are called: ROAD RIDER “SHREDMAGS”
Interestingly, they are also made in china: learn more here
