CRAZY Bruiser wheels are hybrids, meaning they are almost equally well suited for Indoor or Outdoor Skating on many various surfaces like Concrete, Wooden Floors coated or un-coated, Outdoors, or Sport Court – NO surface is any match for these Hybrids….. Designed for flexibility, Bruisers give you the freedom to skate on a range of surfaces, without the hassle of constantly changing wheels. Hybrid wheels do not offer the ultimate performance as ‘indoor’ or ‘outdoor’ specifc wheels would, but Bruisers promise to offer superior grip and maximum roll, with some of that higher rebound feeling of outdoor wheels, and Bruisers are an economical option for those who can not yet afford multiple sets of wheels. Available in either 59mm X 38mm size.
From a Derby perspective: CRAZY Bruiser wheels are a little sticky and have a mid-slim surface which is perfect for new derby players, young players and skaters that are new to skates. The 84A durometer means more stability and agility than a harder, slipperier wheel will allow an unseasoned skater. Most skaters on this wheel say they feel extremely comfortable maneuvering and doing all drills and forms of play. Even veterans will use this little beauty for extra slippery floors as in highly polished concrete and glossy lino.
Why do we sell in 4 Packs?
All CRAZY Skates wheels are sold in 4 packs to give you the choice and flexibility – you can choose to mix colours and durometers. Mixed colours not only look good – it serves a function. Some skaters choose to use harder durometer wheels on their outside wheels, and softer durometers for their inside wheels. This can assist skaters with grip and roll, along with control entering the corners, and giving that rebound thrust and rollout when coming out of the corner! It’s all about choice – you decide – 8 the same or Mix & Match!
The CRAZY Bruiser gives you Great Performance at a budget – you simply can’t buy better!
There are 4 key things to know about wheels:
1. Wheel Hardness is either measured on the “A” scale for Urethane compounds or the “D” scale for Plastic compound wheels.
A. The lower the Durometer number (on either the “A” or “D” scales) the softer the wheel, which means More GRIP, but Less ROLL. A softer wheel is often used as a “Push” wheel.
B. The higher the Durometer number (on either the “A” or “D” scales) the harder the wheel, which means Less GRIP, but More ROLL.
C. It is possible for a wheel to exhibit both GRIP and ROLL by using a Larger Delrin or Aluminum Hub with a thinner diameter Tread of the Urethane or Plastic compound materials. This also makes for a lighter wheel in most cases.
2. A second measurement for wheels, would be Rebound, which is the spring back or bounce (think of a super-ball) that a wheel has. Currently manufacturers are not rating this in numbers or as a standard.
A. A Low Rebound wheel will have you doing a Face Plant if you try to roll over grit and tiny particles, which will stop the wheel in it’s tracks.
B. A Higher Rebound wheel will roll over grit and tiny particles. It will roll into the surface of the wheel and then kick out as the wheel passes.
C. A Higher Rebound wheel will feel a lot softer (because of the rebound), than the same wheel with a lower Rebound, even with the wheels has the same Durometer or hardness.
3. Wheel Diameter
A. The Smaller the Diameter of the wheel the more revolutions the wheel has to turn (which means the need for great bearings) to go a specific distance, but the positive is a lower Center of Gravity which aids in stability.
B. The Larger the Diameter of the wheel the less revolutions the wheel has to turn to go a specific distance, which means longer roll with less effort or energy expended.
4. Wheel Width
A. The Width of the wheel contributes to the amount of Friction and contact with the Skating Surface.
B. The Wider the wheel, the more the drag or resistance.
C. The more Narrow the wheel, the less drag or resistance.
D. If a wide wheel has a flexible outer lip, this can add to the drag or resistance, but also provides that little extra grip for the push.
Note: For Roller Derby, with the small track and the need to weave, bob, and make short tight edges it would seem natural to select a wheel that is more narrow (Not WIDE), so as to allow for quick tight footwork and cross-overs. A wider wheel can easily lead to tripping yourself on cross-overs or in tight situations.
So choose wisely.
