the Rayne freeride wheel got us started while we developed our first Uerthane. We've now taken that slide formula 'thane and poured it into three stock shapes to begin refining our line-up of Square Lipped wheels for downhill performance.
When we developed the freeride wheel, we had never made a wheel before, so we kept it secret and only opened up to a small, closed group. Now that we have the hang of it and we're stoked on our first wheel, we want to involve the skate community more broadly. These are prototype wheels but, they come in a tried and tested urethane formula and timeless wheel shapes. These wheels are currently being raced around the world by some of Rayne's top riders, including Rayne engineer and 2011 IGSA World CUP 12th place finisher, Graham Buksa.
**For 2013, we have updated the urethane pour and moved away from the yellow and red swirl of 2012 to a single, satisfying, performance oriented Ruby Red urethane. We couldn't be more stoked!
Diameter - 75mm
Durometer - 77a or 80a
Contact Patch - 56mm
Square Lip - More lip so you can grip.
Factory Finish - Leave 'em shinny and hold on tight or break 'em in and drift all day.
Grip-set - Offset 3-star core reduces bulk for more grip and faster roll speed without giving up controlled drift.
Slide Thane - Smash out buttery, controlled slides at without fear of flatspots.

Cannibals: The team was asking for a fast-freeride oriented wheel with enough grip for taking corners. The sharp lips of the 72mm Cannibal shape grab hard in a corner, while...
The Prism Theory combines a traditional topmount with a micro-drop to give you the best of both the freeride and downhill world. The Theory comes in at 36" long, 10"...
