if you can find an old set of kryptos that would be awesome... That being said, the new(er) kryptonics route series are pretty decent outdoor wheels. They come in 62mm, 65mm and 70mm.

Default Pacer Velocity Race.....

A seller on ebay sells these sometimes for 39.99 WITH 8mm mini bearings which would be perfect since you have Reactors! Id keep an eye peeled... i own a set and love them.

Default There is already a thread filled with wheel info

sk8tt,

Rather than starting a new thread on wheels, you might want to go here:

http://skatelogforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21979

After you have reviewed the info there, you may want to reveal some more specific info about you (size & weight), your skates, the types of surfaces you skate outdoors, how much downhill/uphill, how do you brake, how fast you want to skate, etc....

one note about the velocity wheels.... they come WITH the micro bearings that are 8mm... if you plan on using them on a plate that has 7mm axles you will need to get axle sleeves.

These are 19mm MINI bearings --- NOT the 16mm MICRO bearings that are prone to sudden failure at speed. They are still noticeably lighter too.

The 8mm ones that come with wheels are OK. I have used them for a while with axle sleeves, and they spin fine. They are somewhat more sensitive to water exposure and rust very easily though.
