Torqueboards TB110 Really Big wheels
I have been testing some new @torqueboards wheels and the latest version of them is really kicking my ass. So out with the words, and in with the photos.
update 2019-03-08: first production wheels
This contact patch takes railroad tracks and potholes like a champ.
This diameter makes streetplates and sidewalk cracks melt under your feet.
I haven’t had any chunks so far…
These are massive. Those are normal-sized kegel-style cores.
I’ve been riding these for over 6 months now and I can’t imagine why anyone would want pneumatics. These soft monsters deliver a plush ride with the range-extending efficiency of DEEP premium polyurethane. This is the deepest polyurethane on any longboard wheel on the market. It’s even deeper than the Electric Flywheels or any Orangatang wheel. You can squeeze these in your hand. They are labeled 78A, but seem to be about a 74A - ish the way they feel to me. I don’t have a shore durometer, so I’m not for certain. They’re definitely a much better ride than SuperFly and they have a stronger, smaller core which allows for even deeper polyurethane.
Some earlier tests
If you have any questions, hit me up.
These are currently available from Torqueboards at a great price.
