Used to set four World Speed Records, including the Official IGSA standup record of 80.83 mph (130.08 kph), set by Mischo Erban on Sept. 30, 2010.
The 85mm by 52mm Seismic Speed Vent is molded around their proprietary weight-saving Energy Conversion Core. The 85mm diameter gives it the roll speed of a downhill wheel, while the weight-saving core adds the quickness and agility of a smaller wheel, as well as enhanced rebound. Combined with lips designed for pure grip, the Speed Vent is utterly unique among high-end wheels. Breakthrough performance for longboarding, downhill, GS, and even Hybrid slalom.
Specs: 85mm tall x 52mm wide -- Offset bearing, dual lip design. High-rebound, weight-saving vented core - 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 colors/duros:
75a - Clear Blue
78.5a - Mango - Defcon
79a - Deep Purple - BlackOps
80a - Mint - Defcon
