SKU: 70mm81a Category:

The foundation of these wheels is the extremely high-quality, high-rebound, and durable flothane™ urethane formula. Flothane™ is grippy and fast and feels buttery smooth for the flow of surfskating.

The specifications were designed for surfskating. Compared to 65mm wheels, 70mm surfskate wheels give you a high top speed, feel smoother on rough surfaces, and are better for riding longer distances. The 52mm width and 48mm contact patch are slightly narrower than Orangatang 4Presidents. This makes them slightly easier and more nimble to pump and carve.

The offset core position gives you the perfect combination of grip and release for confidence through advanced maneuvers.

Both the outside and inside wheel edges have an angled radius. This makes slides easier, smoother, and more predictable. It also makes them less prone to chunking than square-edged wheels, and makes them last longer.

They come in two durometers: 78a and 81a. Use the softer 78a to get more grip and a more plush feel on rough surfaces. Use the harder 81a to get more slide and faster speeds on smooth surfaces.

  1. Antony

    Again , an excellent well researched wheel.
    The speed of a harder duro but with smoothness and grip of a softee. Easy to push into a slide or speed check when needed.
    I’ve been so impressed with the whole range of these surfskate specific wheels.
    My most used set ups are now wearing them permanently.

    First impression from a beginner… Grips like Ecothane, Rolls like 4-Presidents; the best of both worlds for surfskating
