Great all around wheel...
Great all around wheel in the lower duros. The size is great for top mounts and you can continually rotate and flip them for even wear right down to the cores. 78a is the sweet spot for classic Abec thane.
Great for learning and new slides
I love these wheels I got the 75a the wide contact patch really let's you controle the slide buy this wheel!
I have the 88a, broke in really fast and easy. Amazing for slower freeride. if your going faster, get a softer duro. Suuper fun and lively, the wide contact patch really lets you control your slide and choose when you want to hook up. Great roll speed and long life, these wheels are perfect! Steezy!!
Great small wheel for cruisers (75a and 88a)
Setup: old school cruisers and an EW Superglider, indy 169s (no riser), rock hard bushings.
Pros - these wheels are unbelievable cruiser wheels. Fast like most abec11 stuff, and who could hate that old school shape. 75a is so smooth to ride and slide, but it wears in literally one slide :( 88 is fast, noisy in the slides, but still wears pretty fast
Cons - too much wear. Other wheels have better wear characteristics. I like EW Superballs over Noskools. A little smoother slide and less wear.
There are better wheels out there for sliding in this size and shape, but it is great for just cruising.
nice, but wouldnt buy again
i have the 92a version and they slide so well, although they are very loud. i would recommend a softer wheel as it being harder slows you down a bit. mine have flatspotted though, and i was simply carving down a hill and my board slipped, i slid on my back, and did a backflip (and stuck it) nice road rash
overall nice wheel, however going with metro motions next time
(dont forget that a smaller wheel accelerates faster, but also decellerates faster)
best wheels iv ever had
get 75a for freeriding they are super easy to break into the slide and dump thane, they wear pretty quickly but are definitely my fav wheels.
please buy these wheels in 75a you wont be disappointed :)
I got these wheel in 96a.slide so well right off the box. Prety durable with these wheel i am a lot better than before the slide is so easy to do. Only problem is that they dont go fast. And they are slow.I was riding them with bear 852 trucks and Landyachtz tomahawk
i have the 75a version i didnt buy from daddies i got them used. when you wear them down they tend to vibrate with micro flatspots. great slide though. overall good wheel.
Modern Jay Negro
got these a few months ago, and love em. i have them in the 81a duro. took a min. but they slide good, and for a slightly harder duro grip almost as well as a 78a. i bomb hills, duhh, slide, and hit a half pipe every once in a while, and use my board for commute and just skatin around
Buying these wheels = noob mistake
I decided to get these in a hard duro (not positive, but I think I got 88a) with the hope that they would make it easier for me to learn some more technical slides. Total dumba$$ move. They have zero roll speed, a very hard to define slip - grip point, are way too icey, and are awful on anything but the smoothest pavement. If anything, skating on these wheels reenforced bad habits, and made it harder for me to transition back to actual decent wheels. Maybe a decent wheel for pool type skating (not sure, as it is not something I do) but I cannot recommend them for sliding, freeriding, carving, cruising, or basically anything else. Get Cult Classics or Flashbacks (depending on what you want)
88a not too good
I didn't buy them from DBS, but I have a set of 88a NoSkoolz and I find them much slower pushing on streets than my Powerballs or DBS stock wheels. They'd be good for sliding, garage riding and pools/parks, but definitely not for commuting/cruising.
I got a set of these in 88a and they fly across smooth pavement and concrete. Even with rounded edges and a somewhat hard durometer, these things have loads of grip. On rough pavement they've got a bumpy ride, but these would be great for parks and pools, and they slide pretty good too.
96a no skoolz
I have the 96a version. They break free incredibly easily and just keep sliding. Not a great cruiser of course but for sliding you cant beat them! Incredibly fun!!
Butter, butter, butter.
These wheels are so dope! They leave so much thane yet they are really durable. They lasted me 2 months or so. The downside of these wheels is that they slow you down a lot when sliding and that they tend to oval and flatspot when they are near the core. Nevertheless, you should give these wheels a try. Go skate.
What size of bearing spacers do I need for the No Skoolz? Dan says: You want the Khiro Aluminum Wheel Spacers 8mm x 10mm for standard 8mm axle trucks
whats the difference between 94a and 76a? Dan Loveland Writes - 94a is the 'durometer' or hardness of the wheel. 99a is rock hard and 76a is super soft. The typical longboarding wheel is 78a durometer.
