put in a couple of sessions on the 101s. pretty stoked. not as teeth chattering hard as i thought on the streets and enough grip in the parks. way less sketchy than i imagined they'd be. i def prefer the 99s but the 101s are fast as fuck... filmed the blunt slide but it's so shit, i'm a bit embarrssed  to post it... but maybe doing so will force me to get a proper one....

I found this by accident today while searching for some classic full 51mms. I've never seen it anywhere before. Didn't know all the different shapes that existed.



AWOL shape = best spit shape I've ridden nest to the Radial Slims. Loved those wheels.

+1 for the follow through.

I'm sold on the 101s. Fucking fast as fuck. Love the 99s but the 101s def ride faster. Sketchier slides but its worth it. Finally learned backside power slides on the 101s. Stoked. 101s for the summer. 99s for the winter. Done deal. Nerd out, over.

^ Yep! I always had the 101's and tried the 99's for the first time today and I didn't really like them. Takes a lot more effort to powerslide and was less responsive and controllable. I feel like if I bombed a hill with these I would stick on a powerslide and eat shit really bad. In the winter when I have to skate indoor parks they will be perfect though.

101s for life. It's usually what I get when I get F4s. I love a slick wheel that's easy to slide.

They had a weird defect in the blue F4s, it was as if they poured them too small. They would split almost instantly:


Problem appears to be fixed now, I think it was just a bad batch.
But I've never seen a defect like this before .

Woah, thats a significant split. Anyone chime in if thats common with coloured wheels, ive heard they wear faster in general but thats crazy

found the summer 16 spitfire releases, look pretty nice - a lot of bigger sizes and a grosso pro 59mm (!?).

ive been riding 53 conical full 99s skating mostly parks and I love them. Fast (relative) in the bowls and not slippery at all. But break away easily for me when I power slide and stuff. Probably won't go back to 101s.

So far i've ridden the;
99 duro;
Classic shape; perfect!
Conical full - too wide.
Classic wide- was really good and didn't notice much of a difference than the regular classics, wouldn't mind having em again if they were around.
Classic Slim- just tried em for one session and they're noticeably faster. So far digging em
101 Classic shape - TOO slick

Here's the classic slim shape, makes me 147 thunders look much wider;

Am I wrong to think they should just put the classic graphics on f4's? unquestionably the best wheel graphic ever

I skated black wheels only for a long time now I can't imagine it.

They also come in white

No one would buy the classics anymore if they did that.

Just bought a set of 99A Conicals, I had a sky blue set when they we're released and I was really disappointed. Let's see with these one
