New Wheels at the Longboard Loft!
We just brought in a bunch of wheels from Seismic, Metro, and Abec 11. We also are carrying Bustin’s new Premier Formula wheels, which are some excellent grippy goodness and also serve well as a hard-lipped freeride wheel.
From Seismic, we focused on soft to mid-soft duros. We’ve got Hot Spots in orange, blue, and purple in 63mm, 66mm, 69mm, and 76mm, Speed Vents in 77mm and 85mm, and a bunch of beautiful Blue 77a 3DM Avilas, as well as many other Avila duros/colorways. We also brought in some more Seismic Trucks. If you’re into these, get them now, as we have heard through the grapevine that they are revamping the trucks and these won’t be available too much longer.
From Abec11, we brought in as much Classic Urethane as possible. Tons of 70s Flashbacks in all the best duros, Freerides in 66mm, 72mm, and 77mm in as many duros as we could stand to sort through, and we got the new 72mm Centerset Freerides as well. Also, tons of Zigzags and Bigzigs, Centrax, and even the 107mm Electric Flywheels those of you who like to grip your turns and run over children’s feet.
From Metro, we brought in the 70mm Metro Motions in both colors and duros, and we also have the 63mm Micro Motions as well! We are stoked to have these wheels in our shop, as we have heard so many good reviews on them online and from local NYC skaters who’ve been asking when they were going to be in. Well, NOW IS THE TIME! Also on the Metro order was a few boards from Buddy Carr. Quantities are limited and these things are stylish so if you want one, get it while it’s hot!
The Premier Formula wheels from Bustin have been smoking out of the shop and we have heard nothing but great things from stoked riders out there. For the soft 78a black Premiers, make sure you do your due diligence in breaking in the wheel before you go shooting them sideways. It’s been a while since some of our team riders have slid grippy wheels, so we want to make this point clear: Hard sliding on fresh, soft, hard-lipped wheels will result in chunking! The Premiers are sick wheels, but we all operate under the laws of physics, my friends. Carve off the mold release (shiny seal on the wheel) and wear down the edge just a little and then have at it. You can thank me later.
That is all for now! Sorry for the lack of updates lately. We have been BUSY BUSY!
