Description - Brisbane based Picture Wheel Co has produced these for team rider Alex Lawton, conical in shape they offer a wide ride surface and with a designed cut-off outer edge they will give you less hang-up coming off copings and ramps. They have less weight than a normal wheel so really suited for transition skateboarding. Intermediate to advanced skateboarders.
Why this size 51 - 52mm
Small wheels accelerate quickly when you push and have a low center of gravity. This means your deck will be closer to the ground making it easier to hit the nose or tail for learning and performing tricks like ollies, nollies shove its, and flip tricks. Good for technical skateboarders too.
Larger Wheels 53 - 56mm
The 53-56mm wheels are the more common wheel size for beginners or bigger riders skating street, skate parks, bowls, and vert ramps. Wheels 56mm and above are more common for skate filmers. They are slower though and heavier but better covering ground on the open street and for transition skateboarding. If you are using larger wheels than 56mm remember to use risers to stop wheel bite.
If you are looking for plenty of grip go for a wide contact patch, the smaller the contact with the ground the less grip you have. So if you are doing slides on a ledge then a smaller contact patch would be an advantage, that's why best to have a variety of wheels with you and a skateboard tool as well. If you're in the bowl then a larger contact patch is better as your board won't slide out too easy.
Profiles. (corners, edge)
A rounder edge on a wheel will help you roll over copings better as it slides more easily.
A sharper edge or straighter edge gives a wheel more grip and better for locking in grinds, won't slip as easily.
