These are the most incredibly predictable and consistent wheels ever made, with the sugary control of an in-the-pavement wheel but have that on-top-of-the-pavement glide. With a great wear pattern and a confidence inspiring hookup, this is THE slide jam wheel that stays good ALL THE WAY to the core.
After years in development, testing over 81 different variations, Venom finally come up with the perfect slide formula for the modern freerider. They worked hand-in-hand with Venom Pro Dylan Hepworth to create a urethane that is wildly durable, consistent across all pavement types, and has excellent slide characteristics for both beginner and expert riders.
The proprietary Burnout formula slides when you want yet grips when you want. While the Burnout formula is significantly more slippery than our HITP, Mach 1, and Traditional Cannibal urethanes, it doesn’t get icy when you lock out a big slide.
It’s extremely durable, but still ‘thanes more than the competitors. The stone-ground contact patch allows for perfectly predictable slides right out of the box. Whether you’re slashing driveways, or hitting the hills, the SideShows great roll speed and perfect grip-to-slip ratio has you covered. Overall, the SideShow 65mm is the perfect choice for a beginner learning to slide, or an advanced freerider.
