Shark Wheels are revolutionary new longboard wheels designed to offer a lightning fast ride, more slide control and better grip through rain and rough terrains. The design is insane. Set of 4 Shark Wheels Sidewinder Formula Yellow 70mm 78a.
The main advantages of Shark Wheels are listed below
- Faster. The design allows for a thin contact patch touching the ground and therefore less rolling resistance, resulting in a quicker ride.
- More grip and sliding control. The alternating pattern equates to increased control - the width is increased, but the friction is decreased! The sine wave design provides three lips per wheel for superior lateral grip. A traditional wheel only has one. When you want to slide, they break away smoothly and recover easily.
- More traction on varying terrain. The sine wave pattern smoothly funnels any debris aside, instead of ‘steam rolling’ over it like traditional wheels, allowing for firm contact with the ground.
- Perfect rain and gravel wheels. The alternating pattern of grooves significantly reduces hydroplaning by channelling liquid, sand or gravel out and away from the surface of the wheel, allowing for a firm contact patch with the ground. Also, the rounded outer edges allow soft terrain to pass around the outside of the wheel smoothly, providing more aerodynamic functionality through soft terrain.
