These wheels are great after they are broken in. It takes a few slides to break them in but after that they completely dump thane down to the core
they take quite a bit longer than any other wheels to break in but they're amazing once you wear them in, they leave alot of thane and wear down some what fast , the slide is like a retro bert ,they wear down like a butter ball, so nice though!!!
NEED TO BREAK IN!
I bought these for my 2013 wolfshark. On my first ride they catch a rock and stop my board. Sending me throught the air and breaking my arm. Hopefully I'll like them better once they are broken in... 4 to 6 weeks from now. :/
skate all day
these wheels are so nice for fast freeride and sliding. they leave so much thane and are a great all around wheel. the only thing is that the danos have a ton of release mold on them and when I was doing pushup slides they were bouncing. but after a few pre drifts they wore right down to butter! these wheels are more buttery than butterballs. I got the amber colored danos
most buttery wheel ever! love the speed, love the thane lions for a 115 lb kid
I've had these wheels for almost a month now and I love them! My college campus doesn't have many big hills so I cant really say how good they are at high speed but I've hit 20 on these and had no problems.
Sliding: once broken in they slide really well. I just started sliding when I got these wheels (they came with my Wolfshark) and even as a novice at sliding they are predictable and really clean.
Downhill: no problem, hold grip well on corners at decent sped
Overall: get these wheels!!! perfect all arounds
Can't go wrong for the price. Thane like crazy and grip nicely but have a smooth slide as well
wheels slide like no other but wear extremly fast, went through a set in 4 hours but never saw so much thane in my life~
Not Speed Wheels
Great wheels for Cruising and very good for control
my friend has these wheels and they are great for cruising and he check slides every once and a while so yeah...
i have the green that came with a board i bought used.These wheels are awesome!i only cruise/carve no slide yet,and i love these wheels.My other boards have square wheel and danos would be perfect if came in square edge as well.They roll smooth and quiet.for the price,you cant go wrong!
Really great wheels
These wheels are awesome, and for the price you can't go wrong! They slide sweet (I'd say that even better than the 86 stims I replaced with these), once they are broken though; they are really grippy before being broken in!
Overall great wheels and I will recommend these wheels to everyone.
Do these wheels leave thane lines?
What is the contact patch for this wheel?
Well worth the money excellent for downhill
The person you can trust
These wheels despite the ratings they are excellent for every thing and being a racer I know what I'm talking about and I never give 5 star ratings but these I will and available to me because of daddy's thank you sponsor,anyways great wheels way worth it and if you need a board start with a dark star they are cheap they last and it'll tell you if you want to keep longboarding or not
These are pretty sick especially for the price. Their pretty slick for 78a and scary for downhilling and hard carving but not the worst. It's great for learning slides and drifting or just cruising and can take a reasonable beating. Biggest bang for your buck for sure. Beginners and cruisers need these for sure.
Good wheels once broken in. Much better than nearly all otang wheels. Would core again.
These Wheels are very nice. I'm a beginner (but snowboard very well) and can slide/predrift on them pretty well, atleast after breaking them in a little. I got the "Fibretec Freeride 1030" Board and the Sector 9 Lookout.
Scoop it & Doop it!
These wheels do whatever you want them to! They compare highly to all wheels, and for the price, you can't go wrong. I learned my first slides on these (with ease) and I'll do my last on these. Try them out, it's worth it!

NICE AN SMOOTH
I HAVE THE GREEN DANOS AND THEY ARE GRIPPY BUT I CAN SLIDE WHEN I WANT. HAVE HAD A LOT OF DIFFERENT BRAND OF WHEELS OVER MY TIME SK8ING AND THESE ARE UP THERE WITH THE BEST OF THEM. I DO A LOT OF BEACH RIDING AND THESE ALWAYS SEEM TO GRIP THE GROUND WHEN I AM CARVING NO MATTER HOW MUCH SAND IS ON THE CONCRETE/PAVEMENT. THESE WHEELS HAVE ALWAYS BROKEN LOOSE WHEN I HAD TO SLIDE IN ORDER TO SAVE MY A**. YOU NEED A PAIR OF THESE WITHOUT A DOUBT.
they are okay....
these wheels are pretty good. once you break them in they are great sliding wheels. Amazing for cruising/carving i put these wheels on my pintail.
U r all idiots
Great slide wheel
My friend has these wheels and I have morongas and these are almost as good. They are pretty cheap, last long, slide nice, leave thane and definetly not ment for downhill! If ur thinking about getting a wheel for sliding, get these! As good as any other wheel on the market pretty much but they're really cheap. My next wheels will be these then these then these. Get the danos downhill wheels! Oh and apparently each color has a different slide characteristic. If ur not sure which to get, you can't go wrong with the red ones
35 dollars for these wheels is a steal.. they may be a bit noisy but that's all look past. Some of the best sliding wheels I've ever riden and they're stock! Daddies is amazing
New Zealand longboarder
For the price you pay these wheels are amazing
I started to really get into sliding and longboarding all on this wheel it is pretty perfect for an all around wheel.
i have rode 2 sets of these the blue and right now im riding the orange ones. They are good for sliding and are super predictable. They can last pretty long if you are just doing like 15 or 20 foot stand ups and if you are just doing shutdown slides they will litterally last forever.
slidey, cheap, thaney
i had the red ones, and boy were they fun! they are cheap. so if you flatspot/ oval them, you wont feel bad. they leave lots of thane which is nice if you're into that type of stuff. they are super sugary feeling, they're in the middle of icy and buttery which is nice for mid speed freeride. when going faster, they are not as predictable as that of an abec11 freeride or a tunnel krakatoa. overall, they are a great freeride wheel if you're on a tight budget. they also wear very fast
****NOTE***** these are not for Downhill, they can hold a line somewhat well, but are not grippy by any means
there 35 dolar wheels what do you thinks going to happen
I've been rollin with these wheels through every type of scenario. Ive gone down some serious hills and you can easily hold a carve or let the tail kick out a few inches, ONLY if you want it to, but never losing full control. Grips well. I have no complaints, I dont think you will either.
If you're torn between more expensive wheels, and are just looking to do it all, why not save some of those hard earned dollhairs and get these? Are you really going to competitively race downhill...NO?
Then hurry up and buy!
When it says "why not buy 2 sets" then why woulsnt i buy some nice wheels like "these" wheels.. 2 sets on danos would be around 80 bucks.. js.
So far, I have had 3 different sets of free-riding wheels: Abec 11 Free-rides, Sector 9 Butterballs, and Dano's Downhills. My absolute favorite of these are the Dano's. I have this awesome felling of control with my slides, and they haven't flat-spotted on me at all, whereas the Free-rides and the Butterballs have! And their softer durometer makes them great for downhill, even after they are worn down a bit!! I love the center-set feature, as it allows for even wear!! So unless someone can convince me otherwise, these are the next set of wheels I'm gonna buy once after I core my current Dano's. Thanks DBS for making such an awesome, affordable wheel!!!!
