Finally, a downhill wheel from Powell-Peralta! The 72mm is the ideal wheel for downhill racing, freeriding, or cruising town on smooth streets with total grip. The shape is wider than any other wheel we make with sharp lips, which will help you stick corners or carves, while the lips have minimal flex to ensure smooth slides. They are race-worthy for one heat, especially for lighter riders, but will still slide with enough effort. Once you break the skin, they are perfect for fast freeride in the heat, or hands down slides when it's colder out. Reliable grip when you need it, and smooth slides when you want them. Truly the best all-around DH wheel in the industry.
The Kevin Reimer, and Byron Essert wheels feature a variant of the Soft Slide Formula that has the same ultra fast roll speed and smooth slides, but will have substantially more grip than our comparable freeride wheels like Snakes. This new Soft Slide Formula is known as SSF PRO.
The 72mm Kevin Reimer feature SSF, which is the same formula as Snakes, but poured in this solidly built freeride friendly square lip wheel.
This version will be easier to slide, more durable, but offer the same reliable smooth slide and grip everyone loves out of the 72mm shape.
If you want a wheel that is grippier than Byron's, but less grippy than the 72mm Green Kevin Reimer wheel, this is the one! Sure to be a fast freeride favorite.
Durometer: SSF 75a
Diameter: 72 mm
