The Sage wheel is the same shape as the Kruiser wheel however we have created it in the Supremacy urethane. This gives the wheel less of a sponge-like feel and rather lets it shed urethane smoothly in drifts. This Urethane used is our racing thane that shreds layer by layer and ensures traction throughout the wheels life.
The Sage has a square edges which are grippy and provide more control at high speeds. They have more grip because the square lips of the wheel provide a higher friction to the surface of the road when side pressure is applied. With the square lip there is usually a bit of a break-in period, the wheel can be essentially turned into a nice sticky wheel that’s capable of drifting with just a little bit of work. This is the type of wheel that most downhill racers will be riding on any given day and for good reason. It’s a reliable shape that when used with the correct urethane that can stick when you want it to and drift when you want it to.
The Sage wheel comes in two Duro’s namely 78a and 83a. The 78a wheel is the softest and will provide more grip and result in a drifting style of slide where the rider is in more control as each layer of thane is shred off. The 83a will still provide the same effect however it will be easier for the lighter rider to drift.
