Description

If rain, flash floods, or simply copious amounts of water are keeping you from skating, then pick up a set of Eastside Rain longboard skateboard wheels.
These wheels have specially made grooves that act as treads, much like car tires. The grooves help to break up the water on the ground, in order to prevent hydroplaning.
You can ride these wheels in the rain and in spotty conditions where the road is wet and dry in spots. The H2O wheels also have a stoneground finish for smoother slides in spotty conditions.
Make sure to pick up a bearing cleaning kit or an extra set of bearings to ride in the rain. The EastSide H2O Rain wheels allow you to stick lines, control your slides, and most important: skate in the rain! So get wet and go skate!

Eastside's Description

Centerset for even wear and to keep water away from the bearings. To make them respond in the rain, we've grooved 2 deep lines of insets around the wheel. This reduces hydroplaning by displacing the water on the road and providing the traction you need to stick your line. And YES, THEY DO WORK! Also when you drift or intentionally slide, its easier to hook back up smoothly and continue on with speed. They work best on completely wet roads and last a very long time if never ridden on dry pavement. The 70mm size allows for faster acceleration out of turns than bigger wheels. A great match for any longboard including commuter boards to keep you safe in the rain with superior control.

Wanted to ride during the fall and winter this year so got a set here a few weeks ago and so glad I did! I have them setup on a dedicated single kick longboard as a rainboard. So nice to have another setup just for rainy days with these wheels on it. They don't slide out when making sharp turns around the city when I ride to work and back home. I even slide them on dry pavement and they are still smooth! A must have!

I am from Austin Texas and recently we had a lot of thunder storms and floods. And having these wheels has made a world of difference. No more unwanted sliding when going down wet hills at 20mph.

Definitely a useful wheel if it rains a lot were you live. I've taken them up to about 20mph and had no hydro-planning trouble and they feel very safe and controllable for downhill. For freeride they never release unless you want them to and it is easy to pull them back after a slide, these are two qualities I've never found in any other wheel in the rain. Their slide is mostly like normal wheels in the rain but they give you a little resistance to push against and they are way more controllable. Overall these wheels are defiantly worth it especially if you find yourself in the rain a lot and want a wheel you can actually control.
