    race formulas are one of the best wheels i have ever ridden. grippy when you need them to be, buttery once they're broken in, and they last for a longg time

    It's funny people say for dh they want a wheel that is buttery when they want and grips when they want. Besides this being impossible, race forms are the closest thing I've ever gotten to this feeling.

    This is how I would describe my blue 69's. Definitely my favorite wheels right now.

    I like my 69mm 78a's for tech stuff but I think if I were racing I would get 80a. The 69mm 78as also lag so hard on straights. My buddy who can't tuck for **** was keeping up with me down a hill where I usually lose him in the first 50ft. 74mm 80a or 82a for Mary I'm thinking or rads

    My dream is 80a center set square lipped. I've been going back and forth forever about it can't decide whether I should do 74mm 82a front 78a rear or 80a all around. You might wan to run something a tad smaller so you get a solid amount of acceleration out of the turns. Just my 2cents

    A square lipped CS rf sounds bomb. I would buy that.

    I hate switching out between my Cannibals and my flat spotted Freerides. I was wondering if I should just get 70mm CS 80a or 70mm OS 80a for more of an all around wheel. Can another square lipped wheel be justified?

    I have 80a lipped. They are really good, I don't have to switch wheels. I downhill on them and they can stick lines, and I freeride them a lot. They wear very slowly as well, which is definitely a plus. Get them, you won't be disappointed.

    If you want an all around wheel, go OS. If you want a wheel strictly to freeride, go with a CS. However, IMO its better to have different wheels for different purposes. Using one wheel for everything will usually result in a wheel that soon becomes good at nothing.

    Mind blown. It makes sense though. I think I will go with the 80a lipped, thanks guys!

    what are the differences between the 69mm and 72mm 80a rf's (besides just size)? I'm talking about the square lipped 72mm ones.

    I believe the 69's have a sharper lip.

    So here are my former 70mm CS, donezo. To sum it up, facking awesome freeride wheel. Got super buttery in the low 60's, and then got progressively icier. Toward the core, they got kinda unpredictable. As you can see I had some pretty significant chunking, also in the low 60's, but only on one wheel, perhaps a defective one. Loved these babies and will buy them again. The pic shows the most cored and least cored.

    Cannibals are nice, but IMO RF's are just a tad better. RF's grip a little harder and shed a little more speed IMO, although both are definitely great wheels.

    RF is my go-to thane for everything, cannibal thane being a very close second. I currently have like 5 sets of yellow rf's, and both the main wheels i run on my dh and freeride settups are yellow rf. Its just a great thane and fun for everything.


    Loved my tweakers though and I have a few sets of cannibals which I enjoy. Cannibals are fasttttt, grippy, and slide well, and have been the only wheel ive tried to give raceforms a good run for their money.

    Has anyone else ridden the old yellow 80a race forms? They were pretty sweet. If so, have you found something similar?
