I just can't get behind narrow wheels. If they were "regular" size, I'd definitely try out a set.

Default the truth

Hey people.

Just wanted to clear up a few things. HEARTLESS is in no way, shape, or form associated with Nistevo, Luigino, or Atom (formerly Answer). I was let go from the comapany in November. For the past 3 years I was responsible for creating the shapes, hardnesses, hubs, colors and names, for all of the wheels. I wanted to stay in the wheel biz, so when industry insiders heard that i was let go, they were quick to offer me jobs. I could have easily went with Sure-grip, radar, Powell, or Vanilla, but i decided to go my own way. Now I have Heartless. I started GRN MNSTR because in my quest to pay bills, i was helping some other companies with design and marketing ideas. The hub used on HEARTLESS wheels is a "true" hollow core, meaning BOTH pieces of the hub are completely hollow, UNLIKE the Atoms which are "hybrid" hollow (only the cap of the hub is hollow, the bigger back piece is solid). Heartless has 6 durometers (86-96) and is sold in 4 packs to allow you to have the best possible combination of hardnesses. Heartless wheels are narrow and ONLY narrow.(although i am working on a wide variation for the rest of you The wide wheel I am producing will not be a Heartless wheel. I hope this info is helpful. Would anyone like to SEE what my wide proto looks like???

Default Heartless in action

Heres why I like narrow wheels. Heartless wheel in their banked track debut at Blood & Thunder derby training camp. Enjoy. You can also see me doing derby BEFORE it was cool, on Youtube under Rollerjam. I was on the Illinois Riot.

Thanks for putting the Heartless' out. I tried them on the recommendation of Chrissy Cruizzer and am unsure why I haven't tried out a thinner wheel before. I skated on them for 15 minutes on Friday night at B&T before having to head off to a game in Spokane, WA. In those 15 minutes alone I realized that some of my biggest agility problems I've been having were not really me problems, but more so wheel problems.

I also took these out on our home rink, which is really filthy concrete and they have amazing grip. Normally I can never hit full speed without a fear of loosing my footing on the corner. For the first time yesterday I was able to really skate on our floor.

In short, I've been able to do things, and try out new moves that I would have never be able to do before. I'm amazed at the difference in my skating just changing my wheels have made. Thank you for your awesome product!

Why such a tiny lip?

I got the Hub samples in the mail (through the league) and they seem stiff enough, though a bit frail? Seems like they'd run a risk of shattering with all the wheel to wheel contact.

But with all this talk about hubs, what about the lip? Having an extended lip gives that added push to each step and crossover, and is one of the things that makes shaman/lips/interceptors skate so well. If you're gonna go wider, you might want to consider that.

When did you start rocking those? I was a fan of your pro-cat (i think) setup?

I think you might have the hubs confused. These are not the same hubs as the current Heartless wheels. Since I asked if anyone wanted to see the proto, there have been changes to the hub, but NOONE has this hub, and they were never sent to anyone. Trust me, when they are released, you wont need to worry about any, chunks, cracking, breaks, separating, etc.
