*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

you can t compare wheels if you didn t test them.

and nobody like the same wheel.

it takes a long time to find your best wheels...you need to spend money...

personnaly, the new route is the best in my application...but can understand someone else prefers another model.

i tried last years, zombie hawgs, rd twister, route, hawaii k, radar flyer, classic k....and many others the next 20 years....
surely, the design and the durometer of new route same as the first 70mm krypto retro k i used have an influence...
somebody that used at first a flatter design like hyper rollo for example would prefer this kind of wheel...
you change of design and maybe you feel you cant push on your feets the same...not the same reaction...

for me round edge give a final squish that add some power and it aids for sharp turning or parralell braking....if you stop in T position...nothing matter.

never tested the helium but will not buy them...too small for me...i can push easily 70mm wheels so...

a little bit harder wheel will help in dancing and he doesn t need a mpre than 62 mm wheel...
remember he wants to jump.
if he jumps currently stairs of more than 1 meter, he surely can destroy the hub and when he will contact the floor...the energy will not be absorb by urethane partially but by the body...

we can discuss a long time....nobody will say the same...

the only solution will be to do a meeting together....and test all the combo.
but personnaly i never say a quad skater to use the wheels you see on pics...

ok rd twister aka vr is not too bad...and not really better than radar flyer but there is a major problem...the bearing...no real choice..and too small contact patch for me.
