More than urethane. Embedded in every wheel are 30 years of creativity, friendship and not being core. When you rollerblade on these rollerblading wheels, you will want to yell, "I'm Rollerblading!". Our mission is to become bigger than Senate and have a full line of 10 wheels for all styles and visions of skating within the following year.
The MB Buddies are directly inspired by the "face profile" used heavily in Better Than Baseball, MB1, MB2, MB3 and MB4. Great profile for maneuverability, minimal wheel bite on pose slides and our preferred wheel of choice for small wheel flat setups. We chose a 90a hardness so the wheel could be used for flat or anti. A classic profile and a size that carries on the highly creative tradition that Tom Hyser brought to K2 in the 90s.
The MB Toes have become the standard wheel in our toolkit for anti rocker outers, flat 60 for park riding and inner wheels for Oysi frames. A versatile size and profile; can also be mixed with the 58/90 Buddies for a "Wacky Mode" inspired rocker. A 60/90 hardness will please many styles and (core and not core) riders. This size and hardness have become widely used over the decade, but beware, 60mm wheels are considered "big wheels" to some core riders. You might want to use smaller wheels if you're looking to gain more core points. Also, if you're going to skate flat 60, you better be dialled in.
The MB Pants are a wheel size used for a unique mix of slalom, speed, aggressive and freeskating. This size became MB canon when the very first NR90 Wizard Frame was created in 2014. Leon Basin's BIG WHEELS 2 section dropped and completely changed what big wheel skating could be (if you know, you know). Used heavily in the Wizard Frame Testing series, ZONE, MB7 and MB8. These wheels are playful, fun, definitely not core (unless you're skating them on Sola frames), and a 90a hardness for longer lasting street riding and sliding. This is basically Todd's pro wheel because he's like... really good on them.
The MB Mugs are meant for being fast, capable and stable while still dropping some hot moves. Originally thought to be a size for speed or distance skaters. The creation of the NR100 Wizard Frame by Leon Basin in late 2014, once again, changed what big wheel skating could be. Used heavily in the Wizard Frame Testing series, ZONE, MB7 and MB8. These wheels are a powerful tool in a long-lasting 90a hardness for speedy flat ground skating, park skating and lengthy slides. This size was the first MB "pro" product and the first "pro" 100mm wheel in rollerblading history. 100mm wheels are absolutely not core and not certified by the Real Skaters Association of the World. We won't be mad if you skate these on tri-skates, but just don't start yelling "death to the 4th wheel."
