The Bones X Formula V5 Sidecut wheels are the solution to bridging the gap and the result of the perfect skate anywhere wheel!
The X-Formula is extremely fast because it has a super high rebound. X-Formula rolls much smoother and faster on all terrains because it absorbs vibration and softens impacts much better than any other wheel in the market. Its slide-ability comes from its unique blend of high performance materials. X-Formula will slide when you ask it to, and grip when you need it most. This is because X-Formula is specially formulated for any terrain.
As a result, the X- Formula is smooth, fast and durable. It has been developed using the highest quality, longest lasting materials. X-Formula is a great value and because it softens landings and absorbs vibration, it is also better on your body which can add longevity to your normal day of skating. The signature V5 shape are great for street and pools. Sidecuts have the a medium-wide contact patch and a conical cut, aimed to increase grip and reduce drag for longer slides.

In October 2020 we had an idea to recreate the January 1981 Thrasher cover which was an illustration of what we believe to be a “Bert”. If you’re not familiar with a Bert, it’s essentially a frontside grind but you’re completely laid back in the transition with your lead hand holding you off the wall. Being that this was going to be for the Thrasher 40 year anniversary, we thought, who better to recreate this moment other than Tony Hawk? Of course Tony was up for the challenge but he had admittedly had never done a Bert. In efforts to keep the energy of the session high, I also invited Zane Timpson. Before this day, Zane and Tony had never had an intimate session together and right away, they hit it off. With both of them having so much genuine love and passion for skateboarding, the day was full of high fives, hugs and positivity. It is day I will never forget in my life. Thank you for all the memories Zane. We will love you ffforever. -Jared Lucas
