Earthwing drops Floaters and The Wild Child

Earthwing has no attention span.  Well, maybe the attention is more directed at the ever changing needs, and technology of skateboarding? The amount of different decks, and wheels that has dropped into the market from the Wing, and Balls over the years is staggering for such an itty bitty company. Without cold calling shops, or looking for write ups in publications, or having any marketing plan whatsoever, Earthwing just grew on the backs of, and through the support of true 4 wheel lifers, and fans of skateboarding. Earthwing itself is just a crew of skateboard nerds, and there is honestly no difference between the heads behind EW, and the heads that ride EW.  Earthwing is about as big as it wants to be, and because of that, it will stay nimble enough to keep up with skateboarding, and out of the hands of distributors that blow it into every corner of the market.  You will always be able to call in to Earthwing, and get Brian on his i-phone pretending that he runs a business.

 

 Floaters


Active Image

With every deck that Earthwing drops, a wheel from Superballs is designed to work with it.  The new “Floaters” are designed primarily for the Supermodel 38”, and 40” twin dropthrough.  The urethane is a racing formula designed to grip, with a fast rolling speed and actually rebounding faster through rough spots. The thing that makes these wheels unique is mixing that race thane with a non- racing rounded lipped freeriding shape. It creates a wheel that grips, slides, bombs, and does all of that quietly and willingly.  Just lean a little more in like you mean it and feel the controlled drifting like hot butter on toast.  You can actually hear the urethane cheering you on…SSSSSSST!  These wheels will make you a better skateboarder.

These wheels are the best cruiser wheels in the size.  This will turn your street kit into a hustling little rocket that floats silently at speed for pedestrian slalom, or bombing quick little hills, or smoking the biggest concrete bowls with ease.  Even to make your longer wheelbases low, and quick for sprinting, this size wheel ia a must have for any quiver.  The 56mm 82a was Earthwing’s fastest selling product.  The new 54mm, and 57mm are a more dialed in version that will change the relationship most skateboarders have with small wheelbases.  These are not just a token filmer wheel, these are designed for speed.  With a newly engineered “mushroom” core that is wider over the outer bearing seat, the wheel is supported over the part that received the most load and abrasion.  This feature makes the wheel feel more solid in turns, carves, and landings without sacrificing the rebound of a deep urethane depth.  It will maintain speed, and grip without feeling sluggish, and squishy.  This is an example of technology made to improve niche skateboarding that you will soon find being implemented in standard wheels.  It starts here.  Have fun, your welcome, and we promise to continue to blow you mind over and over with excellent stuff.
