Product Review (submitted on February 15, 2020):
For years now, I've been trying different cruiser/filmer wheels to hybridize one of my street boards. These are the first wheels that actually work by doing four things well:

- Smooth out rough pavement
- Keep their shape for stable ollie launches
- Also keep shape for maintaining speed at skate parks
- Not too bulky for flip tricks.

Seriously, I've tried fifteen or so different cruiser/filmer wheels over the last 20 years, and this is the best balance. All the other wheels I tried fell short on some way. They'd either keep their shape because they were too bulky, or they were narrow and agile until you put them under stress.

It's true that I'll still use street/park wheels if I'm trying to land something new or otherwise skate hard. But, for an awesome cruise with the option to ollie up that curb or carve through the skate park on the way home, these definitely work.

Also, I dig the clear colors. Reminiscent of Skateboarder mag, circa 76-77.

So, Skate One, you finally did it. THANK YOU!!!
