Volante Checker Center Set Longboard Wheels 68mm 82a - SET OF FOUR

SKU#AQ01653

$49.95

Quick Overview

A super fun center-set freeride wheel made with an amazing urethane that reacts just how you want it to!
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 Volante Checker wheels are super sick freeride wheels that are chalked full of sweet, buttery, slide-tastic thane.  They have a narrow contact patch that allows them to break away into long, controllable slides with ease. If you like showing off your skills then you are going to love the chunky thane lines that the Volante Checker wheels leave behind! We really like these wheels because once you wear them down a bit you can throw them on park boards and cruiser boards and they end up being really fun. Even on smaller boards they break into slides super easy! The Volante Checker wheels are an all around great freeriding wheel and if sliding is your jam, you are going to love them!

Customer Reviews

Juicy
I have been enjoying these wheels for about a week now, they took a couple runs to break in and made a good bit of noise during that time. But after they broke in they were a solid wheel. Leave descent thane lines and have a really glidey, floaty slide. They wear pretty quickly and I have had some flat spotting issues, but other than that a great drifty freeride wheel.
Best sliding wheel IMO
I have tried Abec 11 freerides 78a,BO Morgans 65 and 70,S9 Butterballs 65, and the Volante checkers are still nicer. I find them exceptionally smooth with a little bit of an icier feeling but not to much. And I don't find them to flatspot or oval all that easily so so far these wheles are my favorite i am going to continue to buy them.
great wheels
These wheels had very controllable , very smooth slides. It felt like the perfect mix of smoothness so you dont ice out , but you will never lock up either. Only issue with this wheel , considering i slide about 25 to 30 ft and weigh about 160 lbs. these wheels BARELY THANED . Not that that matters too much , they just wore down suprisingly fast for a very unnoticeable thane line. Also , when the wheel got very small (down to core) it started sliding poorly ,but whats to expect ?

Overall: should you get this wheel?
The answer is yes , unless you love thane lines.
There not really good or really bad
There the weirdest wheels I've ever slid on... There smooth very predictable don't thane to much BUT if ur looking for something a bit different these are what your looking for

These are some good wheels having had a lot of experience with Some of the best sliding wheels I would say these are high up on my list.

Setup: apex 40 DD, caliber 50s, sector 9 butterballs.

Great wheels
REally nice wheels they break in easily but they are really easy to flatspot
Get them!
i honestly like these wheels better than my butterballs. it just took me to runs to break the wheels in. At first they are a bit choppy, after that they slide so smooth! downside is that i wore them down after a few skate seshs.
One of the best freeride wheels
If you are looking for one of the best freeride wheels ever, BUY THESE. Checkers are super smooth, controllable and predictable. They do thane a ton so they have a short life. Mine lasted me 4-5 hours of super hard riding on wheel-eating pavement
