Since we relaunched the Hard Times wheel line in 2016 we’ve had many requests from skaters who don’t have the luxury of always riding perfect smooth concrete surfaces and want something with a more forgiving ride. We’ve answered with a 95a 57mm wheel that fills the void between a harder 101a and a softer 78a cruiser wheel for an amazing all around wheel to save your feet from those weathered ditches, mean streets and rough parking lots but will still keep you rolling with speed at the skatepark.
These are the same sidecut shape we made in 1990...not because it’s nostalgic but because it’s still a really damn good shape! They might say Hard Times but no corners were cut with these! This is the best urethane out there!
Update: I just tested the wheels and they're amazing! A bit smoother ride and a bit more grippy but you can still powerslide on them.....and still fast!
