After 3 years of shredding our Blue thane 73mm 81a Merkaba. It was time for a change.
So we decided to go with what we know works best and changed the urethane to our pure ol’ white trustworthy, consistent urethane formula we have been using on Akashas and the new Mukti wheels.
With the change we still have an incredible shape for all types of DH skateboarding at 73mm tall with a 58mm contact patch. And with the new urethane color change, the wear, drift and all around feel of the wheel improves a lot.
With skin it will provide a nice grip and thanks to the sharp cut lips, the edge of traction is really easy to notice so you can keep gripping or break traction easily drifting into any corner at speed. Once broken in the consistency of the new color thane shows right away as drifts are way easier to kick out and very comfortable to hold even for the size of the wheel.
Still at 81a the mix of thane and duro is perfect to slide at any time and be ready for any surprise on the road.
