Venom's Description

Introducing the new Venom Hard in the Paint Series wheels. We took our tried and true 71mm Harlot and 72mm Cannibal shapes and gave 'em the driftiest urethane (HITP 'thane) we could come up with, resulting in some of the most fun Venom wheels to date.

The 71mm Harlot in HITP 'thane is significantly slicker than the standard Harlot wheel. The extra drifty urethane makes the HITP edition Harlot a perfect low-speed freeride wheel for anyone to enjoy on any type of terrain. Maximizing ease of sliding, the versatile Harlot shape is solid for hill riding, and around town slashing. The Harlot shape is designed to get wider as the wheel wears down, keeping the Harlot's riding experience exceptionally consistent over the life of the wheel.

Seriously, these wheels sh*t 'thane. Expect to leave the road covered in white 'thane lines after your session while experiencing slide-control like you've never before. Our team couldn't be happier with how much fun these wheels are in everyday riding.

The Hard in the Paint series wheels are stone-ground for smooth slides right out of the box.

My first freeride wheel
on 2021-04-19 Verified Purchase
I am a newer rider and these are the first set of wheels I bought. I can’t compare to other similar diameter, durometer, free ride or sliding wheels. It is easy to tell how much effort it takes for the the rounded lip and stone ground surface to break traction once you have taken a few solid falls. Despite poor road conditions the wheel has actually not taken a whole lot of damage. I am mostly speed checking rather than trying to paint every surface around town though. After relatively little practice there were times when I really went for the slide at higher speeds and felt safe and mostly in control going in and coming out. I took my licks getting to that point, but these provided enough fun to offset the pain.

a bit slow imo-never really gone past 35 mph on them but they really do sh*t thane everywhere its crazy right out of the box they're a little grippy its kinda hard to initiate a slide on them but once you burn them in a bit they're slidey af its a great wheel if you just like to slide around all over the place or if you're like me and just wanting something thats really easy to slide on so you can learn quicker
If you like thane lines...

These wheels are incredible yet short lived freeride wheels. Once you get passed the initial grippiness, these wheels become balls of chalk that will change the color of any hill. Seriously these wheels leave thane lines like I've never seen before. They also slide very well and have a decent amount of resistance and slow down in slides. These however will not last long under the right conditions, so don't expect to get more than a few good sessions out of these sick freeride wheels.
