New on the market are the Powell Peralta Kevin Reimer Purple 72 mm longboard wheels that will most probably quickly become Powell’s yet another freeride favorite.
Following the success of Powell’s Snakes, the new Kevin Reimer Purple longboard wheels feature their SSF (Soft Slide) formula but poured in a freeride wheel with square lips.
The new Kevin Reimer 72 mm tall longboard wheels have a 57.5 mm width and contact patch. In a 75a durometer, these should be much easier to slide. Powell Peralta describes the new Kevin Reimer wheels as more durable but with the same reliable smooth slide and grip as its predecessors.
Compared to their other wheel models, these should be grippier than Byron’s but less grippy than the 72 mm Green Kevin Reimer longboard wheels. The Purple Kevin Reimer skateboard wheels are best for downhill and freeride on smooth surfaces.
The price for a set is $47.95 on the official Powell Peralta website.
