Description

Want to try something new and different? These new Powell Peralta Snakes come with a different wheel surface.

For the foreseeable future the surface on Snakes will be “grooved”. This is sort of like 50% ground.

It takes only 1-2 more slides to feel like normal, and since our grinding machine is now broken and difficult to fix it is what we’ll be doing - as I say it is “nearly” as good as pre-grinding. For me, I would rather keep Snakes in the line up with some surface modification (grooving) than release them with skin. SSF is so durable that with skin it could take a kid a week to get through it.

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.

oh nelly these sure do have some grip right out of the box. but once you get passed that skin you got the same satisfying slides as the other snakes, nice and slidey, real consistent. theres a reason why so many people buy these. the have also been thaneing a lot more than my other snakes, idk why, still feel the same
