Do' we've been over the small slices on the wheels urethane several times, one "actual" skater had a wheel slice years ago, no one since, it's hogwash, the large hub small amount of urethane has an effect that's different than a small hub lots of urethane, wheel, in roll lines case, because of superior urethane, yes, it seems stiffer than the 82a it is but it grips like 77a urethane, jury's out.
Less wheel squish is less energy lost, the helium is a superior wheel because it has a precision hub, weighs nothing, great urethane and most important, doesn't take 16mm outside diameter bearings, but takes 22mm bearings, meaning ceramic.
Yes it's a 64mm wheel, and the op should start with a smaller wheel, but water under the bridge.
