Looking sick man, I have a set of the originals and they were pretty cool, loved the packageing they where a little small and there was problems with my bearings falling out, but they did roll smooth.

Will they fit brr/y trucks?

Cheers Eddie, Yeh I think the original ones hardly got past the testing phase for that very reason. These new ones don't have that problem at all!

They will fit Y's but it will be a while before I make BRT editions. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I'm getting close now to the release.

Thanks man! Yeh, I think the price is very fair and any money made will be reinvested into the company, no doubt about that. The better the wheels sell, the more chance of a new pro grade truck hitting the market soon!

Oh BTW, Just around 2 weeks now until stock drop. They're really very different to other wheels and I think they'll take some getting used to for some people. I think once you get used to them, they're incredibly fun to ride though!

the progress is lookin great man, certainly cannot wait. i'm glad that there's a new wave of companies, like motion and joycult that are bringing some competition into the wheel market.

just curious, are these wheels moulded, or lathed?

Kerry actually told me that he doesn't have any Y trucks! So I think the review will be on the tds in the picture!

yup, exactly that - would love some of those teal/chrome Ys but I've got too much to spend money on atm with Crossed Fingers coming up and a huge project dropping in the next 3-4 weeks.

I imagine the only benefit on Ys would be the wheels would be more snug, which I'll mention in my full review unless the thought somehow escapes my brain happy

damn nice wheels though, you guys need to get some when they're out!

Do you know how long it will take for the trucks to release? I know it must be a long task but I'm pretty hyped about something new like that coming into the market very happy

Well the trucks are very dependent on how well the wheels sell. It may be the case that I can't afford to produce them if I don't do well with the wheels.

So do you make these trucks 100% by hand, or are they just re-shaped TD Longboard trucks? Cause kudos to you if you're 100% making them, but it's cool if you're re-shaping them like Chemistry.

I make the trucks 100%. I may use TD baseplates though.

I'm not into reselling China stuff.

I would love to see some pictures of the process that you use when making them!
Care to share some pictures?
