75mm 82a Kevin Reimer RACE wheels are some of the fastest and best racing wheels ever made.
The 82a version is poured in our RACE formula, which has tons of reliable grip and super fast roll speed. This harder version is optimal for smooth roads and will roll faster, slide smoother, and last longer.
Compared to the other wheels, this one is the stiffest and will hold a lot of traction before it breaks out. It will be grippier in slide than you think, since our black urethane tends towards having a more crystalline wear pattern, and more grip.
This race wheel will be poured in:
75a SSF PRO – A smooth sliding, soft wheel for rough roads
78a RACE – The stickiest out there. Full grip
80a RACE – Firm grip, sharp lips, and gnarly grip, but much smoother sliding than 78a
HOW TO RIDE THIS WHEEL:
This is not your average DH wheel. It is meant to have tremendous traction when new, and you will not be easily able to slide it. In order to slide the wheel, you should enter the corner as fast as possible, commit to the turn, grab rail, load the wheel up, THEN slide it. If you try to throw a pendulum slide, it will probably buck you off when fresh. This is an ALL-OUT race wheel that is meant to win races, not casually skate down hills. Once the skin is gone, you will find this wheel to slide very smooth, and will grip substantially more than other wheels, even without the skin – this is due to the inset lip. Choose the 72mm Kevin Reimer if you want to slide corners, and do some fast freeride.
There is NO WARRANTY offered on this wheel, due to its pricing and usage. Being that is has very thin outboard lips, it is prone to chipping or chunking if slid on rough pavement, over cracks, or allowed to crash into curbs.
Formula: RACE PRO
Shape: Sharp Lip
