PostSubject: Joycult Wheels???   Thu Aug 20, 2015 9:12 am

Was going to post this in the 'quick questions' section but since there didn't seem to be much info about these wheels I thought it might be worth dedicating a post to them.

Has anyone tried these out before: http://www.joycultwheels.com/

If so, how do they ride? Are they grippy like Oaks and Y's or more slippery like Winklers and Flatface? They certainly look interesting enough...just thought I better do a bit of research before forking out $40US on them.

I haven't heard anything bad about them, they look good.

The preorders are just getting shipped out so Id expect more about them to pop up. But from what ive seen and heard they are like a slimmed down version of oaks.

this guy seems to have made clear urethane wheels happen.. which is something that the owner of oak wheels said was impossible. im personally not a fan of urethane wheels. i had one set of oaks and i traded them off. he's started to send out pre orders so no one really knows much about performance just yet.

clear oaks exist. they weren't sold to the public but they definitely exist, there are pictures of them deep in ffi's newest set ups thread.

They seem really nice, they're definitely on my list of wheels to try. I haven't really heard anything about them, so I'm not sure if they perform up to standards or not.

Matt is a good friend of mine, he also rides for Kapital Krete. He would not put out a shitty product guaranteed! Matt is super passionate about both FB and skating!
As wheels all feel different, it is only a matter of personal preference. Planning on heading to his place next week some time to shred (as I will be on holidays) I am going to grab a set for sure and I will be able to give you a little more insight.

Thanks HEAPS for the info everyone!!! I wasn't aware they where that new a product.

I personally LOVE my Oaks RV2's (I am yet to ride a better wheel) so these are probably going to be perfect for me very happy

@KapitalJ: that's awesome dude!!! Be sure to get a heap of footy very happy Looking forward to hearing more about these wheels too happy

mine came a couple days ago (60D) and they are similar to the shape of oak rv2 but slimmer, but performance wise they aren't like oaks in my opinion, they have WAY more grip and seem softer, too. they also roll really well too, easily my favourite new wheel.

Seeing as they're made of urethane I would say they're grippy ( for fb standards)

If you want squeeks just get a hamster and glue it on to the bottom of your fingerboard. It'll squeak. A lot.

@Casin0 the 60D wheels squeek like oaks, but the 70D sound more like a plastic or ff wheel to me.

So, how about the feel? Like I understand that ones softer than the other but are they both equally smooth? I guess not many people can answer this because no one owns both haha
