Faster quad wheels...

Postby Jennie » Mon May 30, 2011 12:44 pm

Hi! Well, I came along to my first Sunday Stroll yesterday and loved it, and managed to keep up on my quads, but I want to try the Wednesday skate and so I want to buy some faster wheels. I got a couple of hints yesterday (thanks guys) but have now forgotten exactly what they were and what I should be looking for! Please can someone give me some more advice so I don't buy the wrong thing. Also, can anyone give me the name and number of a shop in London say, that would give me honest advice if I were to ring up and ask?
I am determined to stick to my quads for the time being...!
See you all soon, Jennie :lol:

My faves are Hyper Rollos, preferably 65mm (if they will fit) as they are noticeably faster than 62mm.

http://www.skatebristolshop.co.uk/hyper-rollo-78a-38-p.asp Just ordered a new set for myself from here so I can tell you how reliable the store is soon! £42 inc postage.

Other highly rated outdoor wheels include Sims Streetsnakes and Air Waves.

Well, the Rollos arrived from Skate Bristol quite quickly so all OK. I didn't specify a colour as I don't care and they sent me lime green. Don't know whether you can ask for other colours if you do care.

Hmmm, well the Rollos have been updated. They've narrowed the 65mm so they're now the same width as the 62mm and changed the logo. Don't know whether it's my imagination but they don't feel quite as fast now and I'm wondering whether they've changed the compound too, or whether the fact that they're narrower means they compress more which might make them roll less efficiently. Or it could just be me. Have to dig out the largest of my old ones and put them back on to see how they compare.
