82a are sweet

First off, these wheels do dump thane and do seem to die fast, but its not as fast as people say they do. The only reason the wheels die so fast is from the massive core that they have. when i saw them they looked like a mini zombie hawg. Big core less wheel. But after breaking the wheel in and my first session on the wheel(about 2 hours) i was almost through the rounded edge. That's like 3 mm. So the wheel does not wear down fast, its the large amazing core.
But now the positives, everything else!!!! Go fast on this wheel, you will not regret it. No ice, all sugar. The kick out is grippey, but in a good way. During the slide it reminds me alot of a Cadillac Swinger 78a, not that it is icy, but it does slide far and until you bring the wheels past 45 they don't slow you down a lot. they did not flat spot and i was definitely holding them out far enough for them too. but it was still not too far. The hook up is very buttery. when i was first going fast i had a few high sides, but ones i got confident and used to them i was right on with these wheels. these are really go for a technical hill. i love them and will always be picking a set or two up when i get my wheels.
