Welcome back to a new product blog right here on fingerboardTV.
Today we will take a trip to Canada. So far away from Germany? Jap, a virtual travel. Hello Brantford!
And if you hear Brantford combined with the word fingerboarding you might know really quick, today we will look at something from Joycult. The last time I had some Joycults in my hand was in 2017. Back then it was a set of Skyrocks. Today we have 2020, so there is a shit load of time between the last Joycult product blog and the prodcut blog I did in the past couple of weeks. Matt took many steps of evolution with Joycult and today we will look at some of his latest creations: O.G 2.0 “COTTON CANDY DUAL” – 60D:
And one more:
So what to tell you about these wheels?
In 2014 the Joycult O.G came into fruition and carried itself to 2018 when the methods of production became a bit outdated and new technologies had become available. Now, in 2020, the Joycult O.G is BACK and better than ever! Made to the same spec as the 2015 flagship with the only upgrade being a tried and true locked bearing system. Same world class formula, still made 100% by hand in Canada with Premium Domestic Ingredients.
The color is solid white X light blue. The shape is clean and sharp like a knife. Well done! a great further development for these wheels.
These wheels are 60D wheels with a single bearing inside. Durometer is a rating system for which hardness is determined. The higher the number, the harder the “thane” 70D is harder, a bit more responsive and designed for sliding more efficiently on rough terrain. 60D is the softer of the two, but, I wouldn’t call them soft by any means. They a are slightly more grippy and although they will perform well on rough surfaces too, these were designed with smooth surfaces in mind.
All Joycult wheels are packed in this a little Joycult bag. Looks dope and a little bit like a treasure.
Matt wrote me in the middle of the night a message on Instagram. He just send me a coupon code for his webshop and I could pick whatever I want. I just felt like a kid in a candy store. This was just mindblowing. The stock was on and it was really hard to decide between all these awesome wheels. The only thing he said at all was “You are WAY overdue Martin ❤️”. Man, juste freakin awesome. So I picked what I want.
At the end this letter took ages. After receiving the tracking number in august and watching the letter in the tracking flying to Germany, the german customs needed more than a month to check this package. Thanks for nothing german customs! It finally arrived at my placed something about two weeks ago. Finally!
