Description

The 80.5 Seismic Alpha Defcon was designed for maximum roll speed on smooth surfaces. Racers or riders that aim for speed will find what they are looking for in the new 80.5mm Alpha Defcon formula.

Defcon Formula and the Fusion Core explained in more detail by Seismic Team Riders:

76a Defcon: Vice-like grip and very snappy directional slide, with plenty of slowdown power. Ideal for aggressive racing.

78a Defcon: Very stiff edges that give loads of grip with a friendly slide and crisp hookup. Ideal for smooth roads and lighter riders.

The 80.5mm x 61mm Alpha Race Wheel
Stout S-shaped lip profile optimizes edge support, maximizes edge-hold under extreme G’s, and ensures predictable slide initiation & hookup
0.5mm concave running surface pre-loads lips heightens rebound and enhances in-slide feedback
3.5% offset for progressive lip engagement and more consistent wear

Robust bearing lugs
Fiber-reinforced 85D – the strongest, toughest hub material in the industry

Defcon:
Guinness WR roll speed
Directional slide
Long-lasting grip
Slow, consistent wear
