When the fuck are these coming out?

B.V. said in another thread in another month or two...something along the lines of right before summer I'm guessing.

The formula 4 urethane is set to be released for the summer I heard.
They are taking every precaution to make sure the product is top notch.

So... in one of the next DLX drops? I hope so, I need some new wheels soon.

i really hope that they are on par with the bones stf. i'd much prefer to buy a spitfire wheel, but the ones i've bought in the past just crap out too quickly. i'm excited to try these out and hopefully never look back.

I've ridden 6 sets, given out a dozen, not one flatspot from any of them.
I usually destroy wheels(including bones), I've tried to flat these, held a slide for the length of 2 parking spots,nothing.
The natural color will bum some people out, those who don't care will have awesome wheels.

O ok it's sort of like a baize color. I would definitely be down to try a pair when they come out this summer. Do you work for dlx or something?

hey b.v.
was just wondering if you have any idea about the shapes they're going to release on their first drop?
I kinda like the flatter/conical shapes as opposed to the classic shapes (although I'm fine with whatever).

Ive ridden both, they plan on doing a few shapes I was told but everything is subject to change.
I heard this shape is supposed to be put in production with the formuala 4 urethane.

I actually think the off white color looks pretty sick.

yeah and im sure your wheels will look a better color after skating them long, maybe a more natural yellow. The streetburners turn kinda bright yellow and fuck i keep flatspoting the shit out of them. they feel fine in the streets but at a park i get over it. especially when i try to take a run in the bowl and it sounds like a fucking motorcycle

I was wondering what those stickers were on your board in the post your set up thread. You got a rad set up man. That gonz board looks amazing.

I ride mostly bones 100's. But I tried Spitfire F1's but I didn't like the feel of them from the first day on. Skated them till they flatspotted 2 months later and got some bones 100's again. Way better for me.

I'm gonna try these when they come out. But spitfire isn't doing it for me in the past.

Never. 100's do it for me and those stf's feel like plastic and are more expensive.

I skated Spitfires for 8ish years....Tried STF's once and they felt like walmart wheels to me, though. I switched to Prize Fighters about a year ago and now I won't skate anything else. Nothing else is as resilient, but I guess these formula fours may be...I'd be down to give em a shot.

And to the dude that said he flatspotted PFC's once and never went back, are you joking? I've flatspotted every set of wheels I've ever owned ever... That's no reason to abandon a company entirely.

similar situation with me, skated Spits for nearly two decades then switched to PFCs.
these 4s are pretty damn good once you get past the color.

The natural color will bum some people out, those who don't care will have awesome wheels.
you can always dye them
i'll experiment with some generic wheels i got handed down until the spitfires come out
the F4 white looks alright though

I just want everyone to know that I'm only 32.8% skateboarder, and that's on a good day. The rest is just soy and cum.

I wouldn't switch back to anything other than PFC's either. I've tried to flatspot them and couldn't do it.

I only had one set of PFC's, and it only flatspotted once I tried powersliding on a super rough hill.  So it's not that I don't think they're bad wheels, but since STFs were bearable for me, I just stuck with that.

Spitfire for life! Can't wait for f4's
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.
