Details to come. 5mm off the outside lip of the Bonneville. These were designed to be front wheels on an LDP setup as well as be a more all-purpose wheel. The fat outer lip and beveled inner lip will allow them to break in nicely for sliding and the contact patch is still huge and will make a nice downhill wheel as well. The graphic is a tribute to the trillions of sperm who die every day in vain and, of course, a representation of the action which these wheels were designed to do. Available in 79a and 82a.

Jeff, you are on a "roll" -- pun intended! You win the Adrenalina on Atobes, then you author a study on longboard wheels (http://longboardloftnyc.com/uncat...ed-to-know-about-longboard-wheels, and now you have your own wheels!!

You spread good longboard karma and it's coming back at you!

Congratulations, Jeff!

Thank you!  Very Happy

Here are the specs. I copied and pasted from the Bonneville thread and changed what I changed in the wheel. When Troy came to me about a "pro-model" wheel, I was all for it. I was so pleased with the Bonnies, there really wasn't a lot I wanted to change, but I saw an opportunity for something that might perform a little better for LDP as a front wheel for a split duro setup, and through talks with Troy, we decided to come up with something versatile that could be used for multiple applications. This lead to the introduction of the razor sharp fat outer lip and the harder duro option. I also reduced the contact patch by 5mm from the outside of the wheel to reduce a little bit of that "squeaky tire" effect that you get when tic-tacking the front wheels back and forth, which I felt was creating a little more friction than I would like and slowing me down just a hair. I expect to use these wheels as fronts for my LDP setup paired with the Bonnies and I'm gonna really break them in on my Rotule dancer as slide the crap out of em.

The wheel is super sharp on the outside, which will be great for traction, but it is thick...as thick or maybe a little thicker than the lip on an Inheat. The intention here was to eliminate chatter for sliding.

I'm really excited to hear some reviews on these. They will be available at our shop (Longboard Loft) in NYC, at Daddies Boardshop online, and I expect to see them available in a lot of other places soon.

Any idea on whether these will be sold in an LDP set for the front wigglers and bonnvaile rear?

There is a pic there. There's also a pic on the front page now here. Here's a link to a pic from my FB:

They will be packaged and sold as twos, much like most Seismic/3DM wheels. Troy and I talked about this and I really wanted to do it this way so we could mix and match the Bonnies with these.

I freakin love that you put a picture of the sperm on there. Goes back to that conversation we had about LDP being very sexual. HAHAHahhahahaha.

I would like to take a moment and remember what I called you in one of our early skate sessions. The "Humper". Go to 2:10.

I just noticed this as well. I'm going to see what I can do about that one. The Bonnevilles are available in twos at Daddies...that was the goal with these as well, so you could package them as they were intended.

I also noticed in the picture, they are labeled 77mm but in the written specs it says 76mm. Am I reading something wrong?

Yea, I don't know...I'm pretty sure they're 76mm. Might be a "marketing tool" or a misprint. I wasn't involved in that one. It's definitely within a mm of 76 Smile
