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
nice predictable slides
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
solid
They wear down very very fast. a bit choppy but not bad. they dont thane for awhile. but once theyre worn in, super thick juicy thanelines. i really like these wheels.
follow me on insta @dylan_flsc
smooth slide but unprediable
get ozones
Sick
These wheels are prime. I've had a lot of wheels like tweakeds race forms butterballs these wheels kmfsus sidewinders and Morgan's but I must say these are the best. They have an extremely pleasant release and buttery slide. They feel like chalk in a good way like you are just sliding into the road and not over it. Also they leave than that looks like chalk lines haha. On the plus side they last a lot longer then you would expect. They lasted me a good five days which I was damn stoked about. Trust me. Get them. You won't be disappointed.
Solid Wheel!
Good freeride wheel. In comparision to the butterballs I find them to not be as smooth, and a bit icier. Still this is probably due to the 82a thane. I can't get these to leave even a hint of Thane lines though, and they have been worn down 8mm! I weigh almost 160lbs too! So anyways, don't know whats going on there. They are also moderately loud, much louder than butterballs. Not to mention that the graphic will be gone in a week tops. This still is all nitpicky, definitely a good wheel, would recommend.
PS. they don't seem to flatspot too bad but I have felt little ones starting, so just be careful.
Favorite wheels
these were probably my favorite wheels i had. They thane a lot and they feel like a snowboard when doing anything but they are also predictable. These wheels are my favorite at freeride
awsome
i put thesse bad boys on my dk for tech sliding and they are simply the best i love them but they can be chaky at times and after briken in they thane alout and flatpot easy but thats not a biggy they cor right aroun the comet logo and get icy whenthey are lipped but otherwise they are really really great wheels i love them they are amazing buy them
Cool wheels..
These wheels are pretty good. Out of the box, and down to about 60mm, they slide similar to that of a 99a skateboard wheel. Pretty icy, brown thane lines, dont sound great at all, and flatspot really easy. At this stage they are amazing for slower, more technical freeride but they oval extremely easy so you probably don't want to do those more technical maneuvers like no-complies and slide shuvits. But when they wear down and the contact patch gets a little bigger, they are amazing for fast freeride because they develop a super smooth, chalky slide that dumps the 'thane, and have a surprising amount of grip for their size. These wheels lasted me about a month of riding while my flashbacks lasted me 4 months, so a double thumbs down for durability. This wheel rides like an 82a wheel, but slides like a 78a wheel. they also have an average acceleration and don't hold speed worth crap. I don't think these wheels are worth how much they cost and if you want a wheel that slides and leaves thane like a 78a wheel, buy a 78a wheel.
only the best
You wouldn't believe the performance of these wheels! they are excellent for all kinds of slides i.e. pendys, standies, 180s! the best wheel i've owned by far!
GREAT!
I'm on my second set. the first was great it didn't leave thane until it got past like 60mm the it left phat lines. I actually cored one like 1mm from the bearing. i find that they slide like a 80a wheel in that they shed a fair amount of speed especially when they were thaning. Also my first set did have some ovals but now mine are completely round. thats because i didnt have good form then though. Hands down favorite wheel. looking forward to trying the Morgans when DADDIES GETS THEM IN STOCK!
new favorite freeride wheel
on the third day god said make the awesomest freeride wheel!! and volante created the checker... these bad boys are sick, have the smoothest slide ive ever ridden, they leave some really nice lines not to thick were it wears like a bitch but not to small were its a shetty slide. if you want to freeride, put your board side ways, own a double kick, have the best slides of your life buy checkers!! if not i promise you'll regret it.
flatspot
After breaking in these wheels they are so sweet..leave the sickest thane..only con is they flatspot very fast after a couple big slides.
these wheels rock!!!
i recently got these wheels, and after a few slides being broken in, they left THANE! and not only that, but the whole day they didn'twear down a single mm! if your not leaving thane right away on these bad boys, it means your not sliding correctly. please check these out, they are awesome!!!! Warning: the graphic does easily come off which is a bummer cause its kick-ass but still. BUY THESE WHEELS!
Volante Wheels
I've had these wheels for about 2 weeks. At first you have to break them in and they suck but all wheels usually do in the breaking in period. After you break them in they are so smooth and have a great controlled slide in my opinion. Literally every slide you do leaves a sick, thick, white thane line. The only down side is I haven't had them that long and I can only hold standies for about 15ft and they have worn A TON. They aren't really durable at all and I have flat spotted all of them. They are also loosing lots of speed now and aren't as controlled because they are under 60mm. But overall good, fun wheels and I would defiantly consider giving them a try!!!!
Greatest Wheels I've ever owned.
THESE WHEELS. BUY THEM. If you're looking at buying them, seriously, do it! I've never been this satisfied with a wheel as much as the Volante Checkers! They leave the gnarliest thane ever! and they dont wear down fast at all like Abec wheels. These wheels hand off the icyest slides that not even the big names could give you. These blow any wheels out of the water big time. BUY THEM, and enjoy riding(:
