The Rider Approved Designs James Kelly Influence wheel is a game changer! This wheel comes in at 70mm with a larger offset to give you an effortless release point, while still give you that predictable grip you know and love from RAD wheels. Being a sharp lip, you'd usually have to break through the skin before they really get buttery smooth, but since this wheel is stone-ground, you get the grip with the slip. Plus, with a durometer of 80a, your wheels will retain their shape for longer and won't flat or oval as easily as a softer wheel.

Whether you're freeriding your local slide hill, or charging gnarly mountain runs, this wheel is designed to do it all. You'll never have to decide whether to run downhill or freeride wheels again, just throw on a set of James Kelly Influence wheels and you'll be loving life!

RAD's Description

Riper Approved Designs introduces the James Kelly Influence. Straight from the man himself, this wheel is designed for fast freeriding. It features a unique shape designed to grip corners while maintaining the ability to throw long, controlled slides. This pro model features the Crown Core, a 70mm diameter and a 54mm contact patch. The larger offset serves to stiffen the inner lip for a smooth release into buttery slides. The wheel is stone-ground for smooth slides right out of the box. More than anything, this wheel is designed to have fun on any downhill terrain you may encounter. Dig deep and channel the style of James Kelly.

They are only truly admired going fast. I had to slide stop at a mountain road due to construction and these things read my mind on what I wanted to do. James Kelly did a great job making these.
Fast fun

I can not say anything bad about these wheels. They slide right away and they go hella fast. The slide is super smooth and consistent. I'd you can afford them but a set because it is money well spent

These wheels are so sick. They have a great slippery slide but a very defined hookup and release point. They feel like a very grippy wheel until they are sideways and they slide incredibly smoothly thanks to the crown core. These wheels are great for a technical run with your mates but wouldn't recomend them for serious racing.
