Powell Peralta's Description

Our new Soft Slide Formula (SSF) will be formulated in multiple hardnesses, is faster rolling, and will outlast anything currently on the market by many times. Super fast, incredibly durable, and they slide. SSF is a new paradigm, opening up even more of our concrete and asphalt cityscapes, roads, and hills to skating.

Our new G-Slides were built from the ground up to improve roll speed, slide-ability and durability. They have a low profile and feel at home on any type of deck set-up. Push, slap, grind, bomb and slide the hell out of them. Yes, they slide.

Current favorite wheels

So I bought a red set at a local zumiez when they were on sale two years back, (before i knew of muir). These are at minimum wonderful wheels for cruising and learning to slide. I cruised on my set for a year on my skate set up (with only 1/8" risers) and they were great for all the crappy pavement I was riding on and they smoothed out a good bit of the road vibrations. after being my favorite wheels for cruising, I finally set up a long board with them and kept using them to cruise but started stand up sliding a little in the rain and then got slide gloves and started on my slides. They maintain speed wonderfully and barely cut speed but are still controllable, and helped me get my pushup slides and 180s down in about 2 days. Im heavy (200LBS) so these wheels are great if you want to maintain speed and slide, and they also have a hard thane that barely thanes and lasts really well through a bunch of slides, and will not wear down almost at all while just cruising. Going to core my set then get some more here.
Best freeride wheels I've tried

These wheels are amazing, they have enough grip to bomb some decent size hills but are also super easy to kick out. I learned standies on these wheels

Still got it. Fast, yet wide. Keep you low with a responsive ride. Used for crusing on my dinghy. Keeps the whole set up light and sporty

Hands down best where for learning standup slides. Slippery like a street wheel, but doesn't bite into pavement like street wheels do, making them much more smooth.
Ideal Wheel to Pair with Hybrid Setups

Can't really say anything bad about G-Slides. They have very little resistance when kicking out and the slide feels very smooth, probably a bit icy on normal DH/FR set ups but on shorter wheelbase DK's (15" - 23") they're the perfect wheels to feel confident freeriding at most speeds. Wheel's life is also a bit longer lived from it's icey, slow wearing urethane, of course its not going to leave any thane unless you're very heavy. On top of the slide, they fit all the criteria for a city slasher for commuting busy streets and sidewalks: 1. They're fast accelerating and roll smoothly due to soft urethane w/ large hard core, making them a generally nice wheel to push around 2. The core material is lightweight and takes up at least half of the wheels volume, making the wheel overall lightweight for its width (when compared to wheels that are more thane than core), keeping setups nice and light.
