The R.A.D. Release wheels are designed to let you release your inner freeriding beast. James Kelly and Louis Pilloni, the founders of R.A.D. Wheels are monsters on the hills. If you haven't seen any of their freeriding videos then do yourself a favor and go watch some. The R.A.D. Release wheels have a big crown core that creates a dense hold around your bearing. This gives you an overall higher roll speed and smoother slides. They are a center-set, stone-ground, and round-lipped wheel that get better and better as you wear into the different layers of urethane. The 78a option has a lot of grip so they will really perform best when freeriding at higher speeds, otherwise they do have a tendency to grip up rather quick. The 80a option is great for mild speeds and will last a little bit longer than the 78a's. These wheels are truly an amazing wheel and are definitely taking the longboarding world by storm.

  • * Overall Rating
Controllable AF, and FAST
Firstly, both the 78a and 80a are good, but the 80a is more of a workhorse that doesn't quite feel as nice as the 78a, but gets the job done. 78a is significantly more buttery and feels more like a typical freeride wheel in the slide. Much smoother kickout and hookup as you can feel the urethane tearing away like butter, whereas the 80a feels much sharper on kickout and has a very quick hookup, which can catch you off guard if you're not used to it. Definitely recommend starting with 78a's if you're not used to RAD thane. The 80a can also squeal a bit at low speeds.

Both are very grippy wheels that kill a lot of speed, but that also makes them very controllable and easier to pull slides at higher speeds. They're my go to when I'm not sure if I'll be freeriding, pulling predrifts down hills, or making slower tech runs to scout new slopes.

Both the core and the high reflex urethane make this wheel have awesome roll speed. You definitely notice it. I always find myself having to pull more speed checks when skating behind my friends to stop myself catching up to them.

Bearing seat is all good. Nice tight fit, but bearing isn't crazy hard to remove like on These Wheels or Sector 9's new Cosmic Cores they run on Butterballs. Wheel will also last you a long time. Pretty slow wearing, especially the 80a.

Only downsides are if you're a light weight rider, you may find these too grippy unless your hauling, would recommend trying the 78a Glides if that's you, and also the 80a thane does tend to chunk (though it's normally just from riding over rocks & objects, or up curbs that are too high). Chunking usually isn't too bad though unless you're super near the core and the wheels at the end of its life anyway.

Even still, some of my favourite, go-to wheels to date.
These wheels have good slides, but they give u a lot of kickback.
Great wheels
At first the slide was choppy but then. a couple standies later I broke the initial stone ground finish off and bamn! The slide was so smoooooooooooth! The slide feels like butter but almost feels like your gliding over the pavement as well. The 80a releases are great wheels for people that want grip but slide out smoothly.

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.
