I just got a set of the Formula 4s in 56 classic shape and I usually ride 52s... does anyone have smaller formula 4s they would want to trade for these 56s? Kind of a weird question haha

Nate from DLX was happy to send me some formula 4's in my size, another reason I fucking love everything they do over there.

I couldn't be happier with the way they skate, been doing a bunch of powerslides and they still skate as smooth as when I first set them up. By far my favorite wheels I've ever skated and I honestly like the off white color. Thanks again Nate!

I dig the shit out of these. I usually ride 54-55mm but I got the 101's in 52 and they are great on the street. I hit a rock on the way to the store and it just kinda slid for a bit then shot out from the wheel. Didn't pitch me. That's never happend to me ever. I like em.

I ordered a set from ccs about a month ago, they were the first place that had them so I decided to jump on it. I have yet to receive them, and have gotten two seperate emails saying that they're back ordered and will ship within a week.

they never had them.  No one has gotten them to sell at retail.

you basically pre-ordered them.

Good enough to not go back to Bones?



I'd say so for sure. They slide and last like Bones only feel less like plastic.

tablet is flat, full is conical.  classic is rounded, like the standard skate wheel

i can't read the dimensions after zooming in. the tablet shape seems nice though. 36.5mm wide? for what size?

edit: nevermind.. i think its 20 something instead of 30, ehhh

Man I've been skating for almost 10 years but I couldn't tell you how wheels feel different.  I guess I've ridden "Classic" wheels most of my days, but how to these different shapes compare?

I struggled with it myself, but either way the width is something like Full > classic > tablet

The current Cardiel wheel seems to be the SFW shape in every but name.

What is the difference between the Bighead and the Classic Full ?

When I asked my skate shop in the UK they thought that they might get some Formula Fours to test by the end of the month, but didn't even know when the would have them to sell.

think it said they were 101a - anyone see a profile? got a width?

i havent had any good experiences with spitfire, so i always avoided them. i like a 52mm wide profile 97-98a hardness. spitfire dont really fucks with that.

If they couldn't get formulas 1, 2, or 3 right, chances are these wheels will blow 2
