If you can't even process what is already posted in this thread only a day or two prior, I worry for you.

Note the DOCUMENTED PICs of the degraded HELIUN WHEELS with urethane at 83A durometer posted above,

On super smooth outdoor surfaces and for skaters under 175 lbs. I think these are great, but on rougher surfaces and for heavier skaters. they perform less well and they die an early death -- as DOCUMENTED ABOVE.

Nobody who has rolled rough asphalt on the many BETTER PERFORMING alternative choices for a premium outdoor wheel will ever be singing the praises of Roll Line HELIUM wheels (except for their hub & very low weight).

After I rolled just one outdoor session on Velocity Race 70mm wheels, I totally dumped my Helium set for outdoor use. I will hang on to one set though for use on super slippery indoor floors, for which they are great.

Rollin' on AIR
