Hi jeannine,

What kind of frames are you using. What type of floor are you skating on, and what problems are you having with your current wheels.

Lot's of inline Art skaters here, you should get some good help.

Hi inlinegirl1991,

I'm Arthur Lee, manufacturer of Snow White frame. Glad to hear that you're using our frames in Germany.

We shipped SW frames to our distributor 'Skaters World Shop - Frankfurt' in Germany, but we shipped ONLY frames and hardwares, no wheels nor bearings (Skaters World adds these two componenets of their own).

May I know if you ever contacted Skaters World for help? They are here:
http://www.skatersworld.de/html/snow_white.html

And you are any time welcomed to contact us and we'd help to solve your problem. Our email address: services@inlinefigure.com

Thank you!

Regards
Arthur

Most of the skaters here skate on wood floors and use 72mm and at least a 80a hardness. When I tried inlines I had problems with the softer fitness wheels chunking and ripping apart. I then tried some Hockey wheels, they are made for abuse, and they worked. I also had some 76mm speed wheels that I liked, but the smaller wheels were easier to skate with.

I think you'll do better with a 70mm - 72mm 80a or harder wheel instead of a 76mm 78a wheel.

Have you considered using the wheels made for the Snow White Inline frame? The SpeedMax 84A wheels are designed to work on indoor and outdoor surfaces. There's nothing like the real thing...

I only ever used a wheel with at least an 84A hardness, 78mm. It always seemed to do the job. I didnt like the narrower wheels.. The new V2 has the narrower wheels, altho the feedback is still in preference (unless u were an ice skater) to the 'flatter' wheels to give the sensation of quad.. Its a personal choice..

The wheels on the new V2 are:

Dual Durometer 85A/75D RV76 Composite System by Coxmo.
They are a purpose built wheel.
