Venom Tweakers 70mm Wheels
Whoever tells you that a 78a wheel “won’t slide” has been terribly misinformed. The Venom Tweaker Longboard Skateboard Wheel is proof. The 78a Cannibal urethane we all love has been molded into a slightly-offset-from-center wheel that’s got just a little grip and quite a bit of slip. If you’re to buy a wheel that will be mostly used for freeride but can still work just fine for a 10 mile push around the bay, down the boardwalk, and back – here you go! Scott would say these wheels are the best thing since sliced bread, but since they slide more like butter, that’d be some kind of oxymoron or something. Butter side up? More like butter slides down.
Throw these shred-nasty freeride wheels on your Loaded Tan Tien or Rayne Vendetta and enjoy some easy slides, or throw them on your Comet Ethos and get gnarly at the skatepark after laying down a 30 foot standy on the hill above. Your call. Just be sure to ride these wheels sideways more often than forward.
The softer red-core 78a hold a line a little better and tend to leave more distinct urethane lines. Green-core 80a is driftier and slightly more durable.
Please Note: If you’re over 80 kg, you may not enjoy the Tweakers as much as other riders since the urethane is “softer” than ideal for your weight.
