    Default New landyachtz wheels

    Landyachtz released their new line of boards.. doesn't seem to be as much hype as there was last year, but one thing I'm stoked on is their new wheels, particularly that they all seem to be so wonderfully small!



    micro monsters, 63mm



    mini zombies, 70mm



    And finally, a wonderful wheel to go on those trendy 34"-40" double kicks

    so uhh discuss? Any plans on getting em? I'm looking forward to the new zombies personally.

    I was actually anticipating the zombies to come out today as well. I"ve been waiting for them for a while. Look decent enough for freeride, the only reason I didn't buy the reg hawgs is because they were too big.

    is it just me or do the micro hawgs have a lot of core? The profile shot of the clear blues kind scares me.

    Mini Zombies look tight though. i've been looking to pick up another set of zombies after I kill my yellows a while ago. Might try these ones out.

    Urethane can have a pretty high index of refraction and will make the core look bigger than it actually is on the inside.

    I want the Micro Hawgs! One of my boards likes small wheels and I want it to be happy.

    Hypothetically a larger core and less urethane is "better" for sliding, i just say it wears faster.

    apparently different formula between the 78a and the 80a/82a if I'm understanding the video right? Could just be the clear urethane, since it seems like clear is usually grippier, but supposed to be 78a grip and 80a/82a more slippy.
