How long do Freebord wheels last?
When you watch a Freebord video for the first time, it’s likely that you’ll have two questions right off the bat: What the !@#$ is that thing, and how long do those wheels last?
Since Freebord Mfg. was founded back in 1997, our motto has been the following: Progression and innovation are what drive us. Through years of evolution and rider driven design, Freebord has engineered a setup that rides exactly like a snowboard on pavement.
This still rings true today, in fact, Freebord has prototyped and tested hundreds of iterations of wheel formulas. One of the most recent examples is our most advanced center wheel in our lineup, The Boro. The Boro tested off the charts in our durability trials and gives the rider more longevity than any other wheel on the market.
Next up, is the Da Blues Edge Wheel (78mm | 80a) the best edge wheel we make hands down. Tweaked and tested over the years, this wheel is also the result of extensive testing by Freebord’s Pro and R&D team. Da Blues are the highest performance wheel in our lineup, featuring a custom shape, a proprietary urethane formula, and a 45mm contact patch to give you the maximum grip while still delivering a consistent and predictable slide. While usage may vary with how hard you are riding, many of our pros literally ride these for several months with no problem. But don’t take my word for it, check out the video below of the CHoEteam riding them over 100 km in France.
