The Free Wheel Co. Ballins are a high speed freeride wheel, designed to win slide comps, and break records. These wheels feature an extremely large and supportive core, giving you a very fast roll speed. The wheels are hubset, giving you the easy release point of a sideset wheel, while getting the traction of an offset wheel. The best of both worlds, all in one great freeriding wheel.

Lots of Breathing Room
I picked up the Free Ballins on a whim because my friends had told me they were awesome. After coring a set of wheels on a skate trip I had the Ballins left to ride, and we had just got to a hill I was not familiar with. I put the Ballins on and was very impressed by how they rode. They handle speed great, and are very simple to kick out, there is not a lot of effort required to get this wheel sideways. Also, once sideways the wheels tends to steer towards the apex of corners, which is awesome for staying on course when the road bends. The supportive core gives the wheel a great pickup, and a consistent grip and slip point. The wheel kicks out very gingerly at first, but once you wear the urethane down enough to get below the radius it becomes easy to go huge on this wheel.

The wheel is very "smeary" or "smushy" when it is new, and low angle scrubs are very easy, and once you get inside the radius the wheel becomes dastardly predictable. You know fifteen feet before you hook up where you are going to gain traction, and when it comes to slipping out, the wheels only drift with a kick, which makes it very easy to know when the wheel is going to slide.

One of the most underrated parts of this wheel comes when you are trying to turn hard with too much speed. The wheel will scrub out for a long periods of time if allowed to. Ballins try to get through the corner, and when you are scrubbing out in a turn, the wheels do not ice out immediately. They try to hold on all the way to the bushes. Which is so damn awesome. I cannot begin to count the number of times I have scrubbed off a road, 50-50 the trucks on the edge of pavement, and been able to ride back on. The wheels are great fast freeride and corner banging wheels.

If you are not 12, and enjoy a wheel that slows down for corners, and teaches you how to be a better skater, then the Free Ballin is a great choice for you.

This month, all orders over $19.95 get the newest sticker of the month. When robots take over the world, it will surely be more or less like when humans did: Some will be jerks, some will gather all the power, and some will just want to shred. Ted Cocuzza envisions a world where robots still have the freedom to throw a steezy layback grind on a DIY spot when they feel the need.

As always, every order will come with two free classic Daddies stickers at no cost. We know... we're sweet.
