Poured in 82A red Elixir freeride formula for smooth, predictable slides and bright ’thane lines; and in 78A orange BlackOps race formula for fast freeriding with very predictable kickout and slide control.
Molded around our advanced Mini-EC hub – preserves ample tire thickness while saving over ½-ounce per wheel, stiffening the inside edge, and super-charging inside edge rebound. Translation: Better roll speed, more predictable handling, and better slide control!
This wheel is made for fast freeride. The orange blackops formula version in faster in straights and has a scratchier slide that still leaves thane lines, but doesn't wear quite as fast as the red elixir formula version. The red version features 'thaney' predictable slides with a great amount of feedback to provide the feels you want to feel when holding standups over imperfections in the road.
