Yur're right they are awesome. I didn't used them for a while, because the space between the bearings is 10 mm. This doesn't fit at my current plates. But a Sure-Grip Classic NTS plate and long speed axles are waiting here for the right boots. Then I will mount the wheels again.

I think at the time I was skating mine I was using Satellites and the axles were plenty long enough on those. Also the hubs in my Variflex were black. If you would, be on the lookout for me set over there would ya?

I will, promised.

The Satellites are speed plates? Am I right? I'm skating artistic plates, which have more narrow axles. But the "Classic" will be equipped with longer, all threaded speed axles.

Yeah, the Satellites are speed plates. Wondering, just outta curiosity if it would be possible to mill down the front side of the bearing spacer in the hub enough to be able to use regular length artistic axles instead of dropping the extra $ to accommodate for these wheels? Just curious, thats all. I`d prolly do like you and set up for these wheels because after this, all wheels will fit then lol

oh, and thanks too

The speed axles are already here. I can't use them, because they don't fit at my both pairs of Skates with Snyder plates. And my BOEN has flip axles. I'm looking for boots for the Classic plate, which I want to use outdoors and with the speed axles I'm able to mount e.g. the Variflex wheels, or the SIMS Gyro, which I want to skate once again.

Some more outdoors wheels, welcome?

Rollerbones 60 mm, 80A


Suregrip "Kryptos like"


KR Street Roller - 85A - old but not very impressive


Kryptos Rentals - excellent for roller dancing.


Clasique Hardcore - 88A for smooth surfaces.

Forget old school - THESE RULE!
Or rather RULED for the last few years -- too bad production was discontinued.

Too bad, yes.


But the choice of wheels depends on your purpose, also outdoors. There can be much more activities than to gain speed and distances.

Quite true, and in that regard the Old School stuff did offer way more options for better handling of the various types of outdoor skating styles and surfaces.

Back in the day my white Gyros were among my best outdoor racing wheels. As I recall the Variflex wheels came in Yellow (78A) and Green (84A?) - both of my sets had the black hubs though. We did mill down the inner bearing seat so they would fit on Boens :-)

Cool wheels - you NEVER see these on eBay or anywhere else!
