    Default freeboard slashers review



    These wheels are pretty good. They are 80mm, 80a and they take an 8x8mm or 10x8mm spacer as instead of the standard 8x10 or 10x10 spacer. I got these last week or so and i finally got to use them today. These wheels aren't very fast wheels compared to abec 11 thane or orangatang thane, but they are fast compared to krytpo and gravity thane. They drift/slide VERY smoothly and easily, comparable to blue krytpo's (they have the same exact shape), powerballs, strikers, etc. When i used them today i took em down my local run today, not even broke in yet, i had to do some pre-drifting to stay in my lane and they broke out very very smooth. They also still grip enough, comparable to 76mm 81a flywheels, 81a strikers, etc. IMO These wheels are very underrated, they're exactly like a blue krypto. These wheels are very good for "slopestyle" or "freeriding" because they break out so easily.

    I love slashers, great wheels. never thought I would find a wheel that is better than a blue krypto for general shreddery, but these slashers are.
    and the colour is RAD

    Better than blue kryptos for drifty situations. Unfuckwithable.

    It would be a lot less confusing if he just said they take a .300" spacer as opposed to a .400" spacer. I've bought spacers that actually were 8mm long when I had thought they were just listing the nominal size rather than the true measurement.

    Lesson: stop calling .300" spacing "8mm" and stop calling .400" spacing "10mm"

    Why?

    1. The values aren't even close

    2. People confuse bearing spacing with axle measurements since axles come in 8mm and 10mm diameters

    Yes, they were originally marketed for the freebord, but some folks have found that they perform well for slidey/drifty riding, in a manner similar to the infamous old blue Kryptos, which are now rather hard to put one's hands on.

    That said, ride what you got.
