Default Since the RD Twister and Velocity Race are no longer available...

How are the RD Magnums? They look similar to the both the Twister and Velocity, so I was wondering if they are? Do they have the micro bearings, or worse yet, the non-removable bearings found on some toy skates?

Has anyone tried them? Any idea what duro?

They are NOT the mini (19mm) bearing size, but rather the std. 22mm size.

Their urethane is NOT very similar to RD Twister or Velocity Race wheels; it is a lot firmer. Magnums come with grooves cut in them, which usually means they are meant for indoor use & too firm for good outdoor performance.

They are the lightest wheels I have ever found in the 60-65mm diameter.

If you do install the Micro size (16mm) bearings in them, a set of four with bearings weighs only 320 grams - that's just 80 grams per wheel with bearing ... AMAZING!!

I am using them to complete my 750 gram skate build.

Thank you. That is good news about the bearings... bad news about indoor use. Oh well.
