|I just put Ricta skateboard wheels on my skates. Why have I not used skateboard wheels before!! Amazing difference. I never hung up on grinds and / or slides!! I'm a believer. They are far superior to ANY roller skate wheel that I've ever used on vert.
They were lighter, faster, smoother, and easier to slide out of a bad landing, if not landing straight. It could be my imagination, but it seemed I could jump higher as well. I've been wasting my life until I found these bad a$$ wheels! Made grinds a breeze! I learned at least 2 new grinds last night. Also, airing out of the 10 foot bowl was a cinch.
