Seismic Skate- New 2019 ALPHA Longboard Wheels

Longboard Wheels: The new Seismic Alpha 80.5 mm wheels for DH and LDP

Seismic Skate releases new 80.5 mm tall ALPHA Wheels in two widths – the 60 mm wide DH Race for fast downhill skateboarding and the 55 mm wide LDP Trim created for long distance pushing.

Both wheel models feature DEFCON™ high-rebound urethane formula in either 76A or 78A durometer and Seismic’s Fusion™ core. Let’s take a look at the specs…

The 2019 Seismic Alpha Longboard Wheels

The ALPHA Longboard Wheels are technically two different wheel models that share the same components but a different shape adapted to the discipline of longboarding they are best used for.

What joins these two models is Seismic’s pride and joy, their core, and urethane formula. The Fusion™ core is a 46 mm tall x 44 mm wide supportive hub with 8 hollowed-out support beams and a robust bearing lug made from durable 85D fiber-reinforced thermoplastic and surrounded by their DEFCON™ urethane in one of the two durometers mentioned above.

In an interview at the ISPO Longboard Embassy Seismic claimed their new DEFCON™ is faster than their BlackOps™ formula and proudly mentioned Pete Connolly’s Guinness World Record where he reached 146.73 km/h (91.17mph) rolling down on Seismic wheels at the L’Ultime Descente in Canada.

Mirko Paoloni meets his homies from Majanal Crew for some grip n rip fun

During the summer holidays Mirko Paoloni (@pinguz23) had the chance to hang out with his homies, the Majanal Crew from Rome, Italy. Andrea Cararo, Lorenzo Carosi and Mirko spent most of their time scouting Rome’s surroundings for some new hills and found amazing downhill runs they’ve never skated before. Watch the guys rip and grip while enjoying a classic day up on the hill.
