Everyone at Walzen Wheels are very excited to announce the release of their new longboard wheels for 2016. I’m stoked as well and want to introduce you to all the wheels currently available in the lineup.
Let’s start with the smallest and most glidy wheel, The Walzen Kiosk.
Walzen Kiosk 60 mm
The Walzen Kiosk longboard wheels are 60 mm tall with a contact patch of 32 mm and a overall width of 41 mm. The wheels come in two different durometers and three colour options: 78a (orange/green) and 82a (blue).
The small size and light weight makes the Walzen Kiosk wheels great for tech sliding and freestyle. They deliver a super smooth and predictable slide and you can put them on every board without the risk of wheelbite.
Walzen Insul 70 mm
From now on the Walzen Insul 70 mm tall freeride wheels are available in a new durometer option. Besides 78a (green) and 80a (clear-white), we created a 82a (blue) wheel suitable for lighter riders or for people who prefer a more slidey and harder wheel.

Walzen Insul 64 mm
The well-known Walzen Insul wheel is now available in a downscaled version with a diameter of 64 mm. They are available in 78a (green), 80a (clear-white) and 82a (blue).
This wheel offers smooth slides, a nice hookup and it fits under every board due to it’s smaller size.
Walzen C.T.D. 70 mm
For all you cruise lovers out there, Walzen Wheels brings you the brand new Walzen C.T.D. (Cruise Till Death) longboard cruising wheels.
They are 70 mm tall and have an offset bearing seat for extra strong grip during hard cruise turns. The Walzen C.T.D. wheels are available in 78a (green/orange) and 80a (clear-white).
Walzen C.T.D. 74 mm
This creation is a bit taller and wider version of the C.T.D. 70 mm wheels and promises more grip and a faster roll speed. The Walzen C.T.D. 74 mm wheels allow you to cruise hard and get the extra speed you always wanted on your favourite downhill spot. I like it how you can rail the corners with ease due the wheel’s wider contact patch of 56 mm.
The astonishing thing about this wheel is the decent and predicable slide in spite of their amazing grip characteristics. Also available in 78a (green/orange) and 80a (clear-white).
More coming soon
Stay tuned in because Walzen plans to release another new downhill racing specific wheels with a big supporting core which is already in the making right now. Coming soon.
