The 72mm is now available in 80a RACE Formula. The 72mm is a potent all-around wheel that can handle high speed drifts, but once broken in is a smooth sliding wheel that you can use for fast freeride. With tight lips and solid walls this wheel has a smooth slide and most any speed.
Our race formula is stickier but 'thanes up nice once you break through the skin.
HOW TO RIDE THIS WHEEL:
This is not your average DH wheel. It is meant to have tremendous traction when new, and you will not be easily able to slide it. In order to slide the wheel, you should enter the corner as fast as possible, commit to the turn, grab rail, load the wheel up, THEN slide it. If you try to throw a pendulum slide, it will probably buck you off when fresh. This is an ALL-OUT race wheel that is meant to win races, not casually skate down hills. Once the skin is gone, you will find this wheel to slide very smooth, and will grip substantially more than other wheels, even without the skin - this is due to the inset lip. Choose the 72mm Kevin Reimer if you want to slide corners, and do some fast freeride.
There is NO WARRANTY offered on this wheel, due to its pricing and usage. Being that is has very thin outboard lips, it is prone to chipping or chunking if slid on rough pavement, over cracks, or allowed to crash into curbs.
