Free Wheel Co's Description:
Free Ballins are a round lipped wheel intended for fast freeriding and sliding. The “hubset” bearing seat combines the release of a side-set wheel with the traction of an offset wheel. The inside lip is fully supported giving the best release and hook-up at high speeds.
