    Hey Mike!

    Believe it or not, is still 30° here in Chicago, and when it's not cold its raining. I'm major bummed out that I haven't been able to skate once this year

    I haven't forgotten about you or the wheels though. As soon as I get some time ripping I'll report in, along with me 85a mega tsunamis + 65mm 82a? Tsunamis

    anyone compared these to abec11 sublime powerslides? I find these to be the best hard slide wheel iv run so far but would like to hear what your thoughts are in comparison. Also the powerslides Anti-flat spot urethane is flawless, i cant get them to flat spot. So what is the flat spot resistant urethane like that rainskates have started using for these wheels?
    cheers snyds

    Default Rainskates Avalanches

    Alright so I recently bought a set of these wheels and after skating them at a couple of sessions I'm very glad I did. Before I got these wheels I had been skating 62mm Earthwing Slide A's and the Rainskates Avalanches are similar in dimensions but in my opinion the Avalanches are superior by far. The Avalanches have a faster roll speed, are slightly easier initiating a slide, and better hook up. The biggest difference though was that on the Avalanches I could slide much further than I could on the Slide A's. The Avalanches were more predictable and consistent where Slide A's can be a bit icy and unpredictable during a slide. I would definitely recommend anyone into tech slide to pick up a set of these wheels because you won't be disappointed.

    That was 2/15. It is now 6/16. I assume the ice has passed at some point, unless you're in a new Ice Age somewhere!
