WHY SHARK WHEELS?
MORE GRIP & SLIDE CONTROL
The width is increased, but the friction is decreased! The sine wave design provides three lips per wheel for a superior lateral grip. When you want to slide, they break away smoothly and recover easily.
LESS FRICTION, MORE SPEED
The wave pattern design allows for a thin contact patch touching the ground and therefore less friction, resulting in a quicker ride.
MORE TRACTION OVER VARIOUS TERRAIN
The alternating pattern of grooves significantly reduces hydroplaning by channeling liquid, sand or gravel out and away from the surface of the wheel, allowing for a firm contact patch with the ground.
What are Shark Wheels better at?
They perform better on rough terrain, it has less friction. While skateboarding it results a quicker / faster ride. Their patented shape also certifies less possibility of rock stop. At the same time, they offer you a better grip & slide control.
Overall the wheels are smoother to ride on any terrain, grass, gravel, sand…
The best wheel in the world over rough terrain. The sine wave shape tends to push small objects out of the way. Also the best wheel over wet conditions (rain). Can go over grass, sand, pebbles, debris, water, etc.
The Shark Wheel’s approach angle is ~30 degrees. When a person driving a car goes over a bump or a dip in the road, they naturally know to drive at an angle to reduce the shock. The Shark Wheel naturally approaches all obstacles at an angle without the need to turn the wheels. This gives the Shark Wheel a significant advantage in shock absorption.
Incredible slide control
Better slide control. 3 lips grabbing instead of one lip. The slides are easy to initiate and very predictable to control. You will be amazed by the experience on a surfskate or while going fast downhill.
Wheel provides up to 60% less friction than a traditional wheels. The wide foot print shape enables you to maintain grip and get up to high speed quickly. Approved and scientifically tested by San Diego State University, Mechanical Engineering Department. Links
Scientifically tested to last 15% longer when cruising compared to the leading wheels in the market. Shark Wheel has multiple center points compared to one center point on a traditional wheel. Also, traditional circular wheels prone to flatspotting because they wear unevenly with only one center point. Flatspot resistant. In addition to our skateboard wheels, Shark Wheel produces a wide range of wheels including Luggage Wheels, Pallet Jack wheels, Wheelchair Wheels and Casters, as well as many other transportation-related and industrial applications.
