Powell Peralta's Description

The new Byron Essert wheel from Powell-Peralta. This wheel is a freeride based wheel with a centre-set core that allows you to flip it for even wheel wear, and with large radiused edges for smooth slides. This new Byron wheel features 75a Soft Slide Formula PRO, which has more traction than the standard 75a SSF which is found in Snakes and you'll find yourself gripping through corners you didn't think you could, but still sliding smoothly when you want it. Byron is an all around downhill skater and wanted a wheel that could both grip canyon corners, and slash and slide through the grippiest neighborhood. We've delivered. One of the best wheels in the game!

Just what I needed

Started out on some 66mm Snakes, and was having problems icing out at higher speeds, so what’s the remedy for that? A snake that’s as tall as their race wheel, but the same contact patch as a snake, in a slightly grippier formula. Ask, and you shall receive. This is THE freeride wheel we’ve all been needing in our life.
Best freeride wheels

These are the best freeride wheels imo. They have a very smooth, glidey slide. They are a little more in the pavement than snakes and will thane lightly. They are less durable than snakes, but they are taller so that makes up for it. They have good roll speed and even wear.

Powell's Bryons will very likely be some of the best freeride wheels you've skated. When fresh, they're fast, smooth, and slide extremely easy; a true do it all wheel. I've been able to get them sideways on flat ground just cruising. The most similar wheel that I've ridden is the Remember Optimo in 76a. However, the Byrons have a little less road-feel, and they won't be as "grabby" in the end of your slide. As they wear the Byrons keep their smooth slide, but the kickout is slightly more abrupt, road-feel is increased, and you'll shed more speed. One more great thing about the Byrons is that they'll increase your confidence. Hardly ever will you enter a slide wondering if you'll highside. Rather you'll say "I want to do it faster".
