Some weeks ago I´ve received a letter sent by Henry Baraoidan. Henry is the head behind the website filifingers.com. Filifingers is a website from the Philippines that offers local products and distributes them worldwide. Such a product are Sulit Wheels. Sulits are made by Aliw Fingerboards and the owner of this brand is Jefrey Ramilo. Jef and Henry work together as a team. Jef produces stuff like Sulit Wheels and Henry distributes them.
These sort of Sulit wheels is the moste famous one on Instagram at the moment. I was really interested into these wheels, because new wheels companies are rare and they looked good for urethane wheels. So I got in contact with Henry on Instagram and started chatting. Later on he sents me three different sets of Sulit wheels. After getting the package from german customs, I was really stoked about this. I really didn´t expect to get three sets of wheels.
Today we will take a look at the third and last set of wheels. The Sulit Wheels Debossed white:
The debossed wheels have a round streetshape. It´s called the V2.
And one more:
These wheels are named after the debossed letters on it. The letters are debossed into the material of the wheels. Makes sense. We have seen this technique on some other companies alllready and I think we will see it more often in future.
About the wheels: these wheels are made from 70D urethane and 100% handmade in the Philippines. Jef equipped every set of wheels with strong ABEC7 grade bearings. On @aliw_fingerboard on Instagram you could check out some of the steps in the evolution of Sulit Wheels up to every kind of wheels they offer now. There are not only these wheels available. You can get other swirls, debossed wheels, bowl wheels and a lot more. By the way, these single bearing wheels fit perfect on Blackriver-Trucks and roll round without wobbeling. The feeling is the same like on other 70D urethane wheels. I´m sorry to say, but these wheels are not in stock at filifingers.com. But you can get in contact with these guys directly on Instagram I think and just ask them. Probably they are looking for distributers?! Just write them a love letter.
So get in contact with Henry and Jef now:
Instagram Henry: @filifingers
Instagram Jef: @aliw_fingerboard
Thanks a lot Henry and Jef for the nice talk on Instagram and these good looking wheels. Keep up the good work. You´re doing a great job!
