Abec11 70's Flashbacks Longboard Wheels 70mm - SET OF FOUR



Quick Overview

A classic wheel in the Abec 11 line up! These are your go anywhere and do everything wheel!
Nothing's goes with a new set of wheels better than a fresh set of bearings. If you're not sure what bearings do, they're what makes the wheels (and the entire board) move. They fit tightly and stay inside the wheel hubs using pressure. All skateboard bearings are sold in sets of 8 (2 per wheel).
If the board is to be used for all-around riding or getting around town, spacers are NOT needed. Spacers sit between the bearings in the wheel and provide additional stability for more advanced riding.
Used to keep the bolts on your board nice and tight and/or to assemble the board.
Lubricant and cleaning kits are used to keep the bearings in the wheels turning quickly and smoothly; if this is your first board, these upgrades are not necessary. Make sure you love to ride first!

The Abec 11 70's Flashbacks wheels are timeless wheels that are great for all types of riders! For general cruising and carving they are solid, especially if you choose something in a lower durometer like 75a or 78a. For people wanting to learn how to slide you will really benefit from Abec 11 70's Flashbacks being a full side-set core wheel. Regardless of the durometer these wheels are very easy to slide because not much pressure is placed in the majority of the wheel’s contact patch. The majority of the pressure sits on the inner most side of each wheel which provides little resistance when you want to kick your board out to slide. People all over the world love these wheels and you will too!

Customer Reviews

78a. Take 2 hours to break fully in. They thane from the first slide and never stop. Smooth as butter. When doing big checks that don't wrap into 180s the hook up is sharp, but feels good to know you are back in control of your wheels. When they do 180s they dump thane and feel like you are sliding on nothing. in the road slide. Just pushed out a 30 foot slide with out trying. Negative side. they wear fast. But with amount of thane being dropped I expected them to die quicker. I recommend to someone that knows how to glove down. They have a factory finish you have to get off first.
Best wheels for any level
I ordered these wheels because they seemed to be very consistent, and they are honestly the most consistent wheels I have ever ridden. I purchased a set of 81a's and they slide literally effortlessly and control Chen you need them to do so. They are definitely not racing wheels but whether you are learning standup or you have already mastered them these are the wheels for you. I would say If you are under 90 pounds get the highest duo for long slides, between 90 pounds and 130 get 81a's, and above 130 pounds get the lowest duro. This recommendation is if you are looking for big wet slides and you are seeking a ton of fun. Tense wheels are not too expensive either, literally the best deal you will ever find. BTW my name isn't James brown but I got flashed back to the 70's lol, but really pick these up and keep shredding.
Insane freeride goodness
I just turned 13 years old, and I got the 78a's for Christmas. Don't stop reading this review because I do have experience with other wheels. I've rode 78a boss hawgs, 77a five-os, and 80a butterballs. All three of those wheels slide really smooth, thane well and are sure to get you to crack a smile after a big slide. However, three's just something special about the flashbacks. They do wear pretty fast, as I'm almost at the core after about a month of solid shredding. These wheels leave great thane, and when you're sliding, you can't even tell. They sound great too, which doesn't really matter, but I like it. I've also rode thee wheels up to around 30-35mph on rough pavement and they can handle it. I wouldn't recommend cutting corners at high speeds with these, but they're not as bad at DH then they are said to be.

Overall, these wheels are great for beginners (like myself) and experts alike. The slide they generate is indescribable, so go buy a set of these for ONLY 38 BUCKS!!!
Great wheels
My friend and I both learned to slide on these wheels. I got the 81a and they are super smooth and really fun. My friend got the 84a I think and they weren't quite as smooth but were a little easier to hold out slides on. Overall, I highly recommend them.
These wheels chunk really easily and they are kinda choppy at the end of slides. They're really easy to break in though. If you're looking for a better fast freeride wheel just get NoSkoolz, Grippins, or Pink Polka Dots. These wheels are pretty overrated.
I love theSe wheels
These wheels are the first wheels I have ever tried And they ARe Amazing. I learned to slide on these bad boys. They slide effortlessly Once you break them in.Wear consistently and leave thane. One Problem was the core is sorta loose which makes noise when i turn.
I got these wheels, took about 5 pushup slides to completely break them in. They leave FAT thane lines and a super buttery slide. They wear nice and they cone due to being sideset. I am close to core and I must say i love these wheels. Get them.
I got these wheels and love them they are very smooth and slidy (I have the 81a) ovr all I love them would highly recommend
Awesome wheel!
I got the 78a durometer, and I wanna start off by saying that these are the smoothest wheels I've rode ( I've had butterballs, yellow otang 4 prez, and purple durians ). I'm just a beginner at standup slides, been mostly doing Colemans, but once I ordered these I learned to standup within 3 attempts. After about 3-4 sessions of perfecting my 180, I learned to hold it for a little longer, going at faster speeds. And it is a super controllable, buttery, and fun slide. After a couple slides, they start to leave nice thick thane lines. (Green lines on some pavement and white on others.) I've been sliding them for about 2-3 weeks now and there starting to cone. But it's totally worth it. I practiced my standup slides on all my previous wheels and it was way too uncomfortable so I just did Colemans and pushups. But when I bought these, I instantly had confidence to try. If your a beginner and want a good wheel to learn how to slide on, look no further. Buy them. 81a recommended, just because the 78a is a bit grippy and takes a little more speed and effort to initiate. If you have been sliding for a long time and want a wheel that will hold long standies and leave sick lines behind. Buy them right now. They're awesome, they wear kinda fast, but dude, whatever.
Great for 1 day
Skated steep greepy road during 1 weekend.
By end of first day, they were already cone and one had a major flat spot...

Despite it is pleasure to slide, I would not recommend due to short lifespan.
