Seismic - Black Ops / Defcon Formula - Avila Wheels - 75mm tall / 65mm wide
Great for all-purpose longboarding and cruising, and among the world's best wheels for giant slalom, Super-G, banked slalom, bordercross, and downhill. Weighing more than 1/2-pound EACH, the Avilas bring new meaning to the terms "roll speed" and "inertia." Named after a favorite training ground for Central Coast racers, and the site of the 2002 World Slalom Championships, the Avilas dominate on long courses.
Specs: 75mm tall x 65mm wide -- Offset bearing, dual lip design. High-rebound - in colors/durometers listed below. Sold in sets of two wheels. For highest performance, use a softer duro at the tail (where thrust is generated and grip is most critical) and a harder duro at the nose (to optimize roll speed).
Available in the following durometer and formula choices:
77a - White Defcon
85a - Smoke BlackOps
