Perfecto

Stuck a 96a board-side in my rear truck and it's stiff as a board… anyway works great in PNL trucks in combination with APS barrels.
Love These Wheels
Posted on 2017-07-13
My go-to wheels when I'm not riding their 76mm bigger brother. I have the older 83a version and they're awesome.
Pretty Solid

I don't have too much to say about this grip. I personally think Vicious is much better for downhill, but for a long-distance board this did the trick. Especially for the price and ease of application.
New Favorite Bearings
Posted on 2017-07-02
I've ridden a lot of bearings and these ones hold up great with long slides. Paired with precision spacers from my PNL Strummers, these things just go. Axial and torsional loads do exist.

Came stock with my Strummers and these things paired with a ball pivot are smooth as butteh.
Best Stuff Out There
Posted on 2017-06-09
I've been riding Mob grip for a while and somehow managed to trade for a fresh sheet of Vicious, and this stuff super glues your feet to the board. If you like grippy grip tape spend the extra few bucks.

It's mounting hardware with a good selection of lengths at a fair price--can you really ask for more?
Minimal But Functional
Posted on 2017-04-29
I had these on my Pantheon Trip before I found Muirskate. Since the Trip doesn't allow for high rises, these did the trick. If you're setting up a board like the Pantheon I'd go for a set of these.
Perfect Cruiser Wheels

These are perfect for larger mini-cruisers. Round lips and gummy thane makes for a smooth, fun ride.

Khiro is cheap. Khiro is d=functional. Khiro is the best bang for your buck.
Decent

Best colored grip tape by far, that's what gets the four stars. But two things: This stuff is extremely difficult to get a consistent cut on, and the white adhesive sheet the grit sits on is a little unappealing. I would've prefered it to be the same color as the grit.
Grippy Tape
Posted on 2017-03-20 Verified Purchase
Wow, this stuff sticks to your feet. Never tried Vicious but I don't feel like I need to. A little more difficult to cut with the higher coarseness but it's totally worth it.
Just What I Needed
Posted on 2017-03-20 Verified Purchase
No goofy logos, standard and old-school mounting, and they're rock solid. No complaints from me!

I picked up a pair of these for LDP'ing on the Pantheon and they are thee perfect fit. I'd consider Bennets as well but Paris 150's are certainly the way to go.
Pretty Typical

A little bit of a higher price tag than mose skateboard hardware but for the selection, Muirskate and Khiro are number one.
Good Ol' Riptides
Posted on 2017-03-20 Verified Purchase
I love the barrels, I got some cones for my cruiser with RKP's and they're fantastic. Unless you're freeriding get Riptides.
They Work

Decent price, works like any other axle nut.
Learn Slides
Posted on 2016-12-02 Verified Purchase
I learned how to slide on these wheels--and they're still fun! Remember makes great, cheap freeride wheels that never let me down.
Good Job Seismic!
Posted on 2016-12-02 Verified Purchase
Great wheels for long distance. They're fast, they stay rolling and make the ride smooth as can be. I wouldn't go any smaller than the 78mm version but these are great wheels!
Premium Price
Posted on 2016-10-24 Verified Purchase
But still premium! I've never paid so much for a piece of stainless steel so small but man can you feel the difference! If your trucks come with cruddy washers get some of these; I hear Amish washers are good but my experience on these is excellent to say the least.
Cool

They're reasonably priced and make downhill/freeride tons of fun. Super linear turns and great center-point. 5/5!
Works Great

Installation wasn't a problem and it keeps my locked in while pushing long distance. 5 stars from me, Mob!
Exceed Their Expectations
Posted on 2016-10-06 Verified Purchase
I expected Ojoom pucks to be pretty good considering they have a lot of people using them. Coming from stock Landyachtz pucks, these truly did exceed my expectations and if for whatever reason I need new ones, I know where to find them.
Does Its Job
Posted on 2016-10-06 Verified Purchase
Found some rough spots on the bottom of my Pantheon Trip and these both covered them up and made sure they didn't get worse. No issues so I can't say anything bad about them.
The One And Only
Posted on 2016-10-02
Silver makes the best skate tools on the market today, I'm glad Muir finally offers them now. There are no pieces likely to snap or break off and the ratchet makes assembling and disassembling a breeze. You might be intimidated by that $18 price tag but I've been through multiple Unit tools and Silver has never let me down!
Best Fast Freeride 78a
Posted on 2016-09-22 Verified Purchase
Let me start off by saying that these wheels are for fast freeride and will not be fun whatsoever at slower speeds. These wheels hit all the necessary bases in that category: Fast, Slow/Even Wear, Intuitive Release Point, and they slow you down so you don't completely ice out. My 78a versions did not thane at all from my experience, which is exactly what I was looking for since I wanted a soft wheel that still lasts long. The large, ventilated core definitely helps with the speed as well, which makes everything just so delightful. If you want a fast freeride wheel that lasts longer than your typical "thany" wheel, this is the way to go. 5/5 would buy again!
Not Too Shabby
Posted on 2016-09-19
These are some pretty solid wheels; I still have my first set of them set up on my Pantheon trip. They're fast, their diameter dampens bumps and cracks in the road, and they can slide relatively well. However, the slides tend to be a bit on the chattery side so that's why I gave four stars instead of five.
Yeah They're Good
Posted on 2016-09-09 Verified Purchase
My bones Reds got all whacky and these had 55 reviews, pretty much all positive, so I bought them. If you think this deal is too good to be true, it's not. Buy these bearings, you won't regret it--they're $14 for crying out loud.
Super Duper

Do you have Caliber II trucks? I'd assume so if you're reading this review. Do you still have your stock pivot cups? If that was a yes, then you need to buy these. These are made very precisely to the Caliber II truck and make it feel like you're riding an actual longboard (yeah, I went there). Not a whole lot to be said, just get these if you're tired of dealing with pivot cup shaped plastic.
Alright
Posted on 2016-08-26 Verified Purchase
These were one of my first slide wheels, and they're not too shabby if know how to get your slides kicked out. However, I noticed that they tended to slow down a little quicker for their durometer (my 83a set slows down more than a set of 80a wheels I have). Other than that though these are a pretty good wheel for their price, just consider getting a higher durometer since I'm roughly 160 pounds and the 83a really dug into the road more than I was expecting.
Good As Expected
Posted on 2016-08-16
I got the Fly Knee and was just amazed at how comfortable they were for something that offers a fairly solid amount of protection. I took a spill in June of 2016 and knocked about a quarter inch deep of flesh out of my elbow and it only takes one spill to convince you to make sure that doesn't happen again. Another five stars from me, 187 Pads!
Very Nice
Posted on 2016-08-07
This was the board I got to get into freeride and it was definitely a good choice. Nice concave, kicktail for some neat little tricks, and overall just good dimensions on a longboard. I'm leaning towards symmetrical if I get another board for freeride but this is a really good beginners/budget board.
Buy These
Posted on 2016-08-07
I'm not going to lie, I've never felt a truck so smooth at this kind of a price point. As long as you get yourself some bushings like you would with any other truck, you'll never have to get precisions. These are awesome trucks and you should buy them for DH/Freeride.
Well Made
Posted on 2016-08-07
I bought these gloves because they were relatively cheap and they certainly get the job done. The pucks do last a good little while but eventually I needed to get myself some Ojoom's. Overall good bang for your buck though.
Excellent

Not a whole lot to be said. The 92.5a makes for some fun freeride and feels better than stock Rogue cups. A lot of people like Riot for their pivot cups and I see why. Thumbs up from me.
Worth It
Posted on 2016-08-02 Verified Purchase
I wish I didn't have to fork out ten bucks for a pair of these but it certainly cleans up my Rogues. I recommend the 93a for freeride fun along with some Venom SHR Barrels.
Fun Freeride
Posted on 2016-07-28 Verified Purchase
This set of washers gives you great lean while keeping a good return-to-center from the cup washers. I got these with some Venom Barrel SHR formula bushings and my ride certainly feels more consistent. If these weren't so expensive they'd be a 5/5 for sure.
Snappy
Posted on 2016-07-28 Verified Purchase
I got a couple packs of these for my cast Rogue's and the 86a/88a make my setup feel perfect with a set of Array washers. If you're on the fence of whether or not it's worth buying higher quality bushings, definitely pick yourself up a set of Venoms whether it's DH or SHR formula.
Good Value

I was looking at some G Form pads but they were like $70 and from what I've heard they don't slide on the pavement very well. Seeing as these were hard plastic and literally half the price, it was a no brainer and in the end these were great pads. Definitely worth it, don't buy some cheap pads on Amazon that will break on impact--I learned that the hard way.
Awesome
Posted on 2016-06-21
These are the best bang for your buck longboard trucks on the market for sure. I set a couple of these 50 Cal's on my first board, the Pantheon Trip, and it turns smooth while being pretty stable while going a little faster. Next time I'll get raw trucks because all painted trucks wear quicker, but if colors are a bigger priority for you then certainly pick these up.
Good Value
Posted on 2016-06-21
I run Reds on all of my boards and as long as you're able to clean them from time to time they'll probably last you a solid 3 to 5 years. Probably the best run for your money unless you already have the spacers, then just pick up the Reds without spacers.
Great For Getting Around
Posted on 2016-06-20
I bought this board from a local shop while I was in New York because I couldn't resist it being my first board. I have the natural model with midnight blue 50 Cal's and yellow Mini Monster Hawgs and it's the best thing I've ever had to get from point A to point B. Heck, I love riding it so much I even add a point C! If you want a lightweight board that's close to the ground so it's easy to both carry and push around, definitely pick yourself up the Pantheon Trip.
