A few weeks ago I´ve received a letter from sunny California. Blaklist Fingerboards are based in Cali and Ryan and Tom founded a new company for their lineup of premium wheels. The company is called Lucha Wheels. Lucha is the Spanish word for fighting and this is a good reason why the logo of the wheels is the mask of a Spanish/Mexican wrestler. Lucha Libre is a professional form of wrestling as some of you might know.
Well, fingerboarding is not about wrestling and fighting, but the struggle is real when you try to land the hardest tricks.
So let’s have a look at the Huracan wheels made by Lucha Wheels in light blue:
The wheels are poured and shaped by hand in California. The wheels are made from 75D ure-thane with single bearings inside.
And one more:
Light blue is the fingerboardTV color in some ways so I really like the fact that I´ve recieved the wheels in this color. If you like classic white wheels more, Lucha Wheels are available in nine colors on the website. The wheels are made from hand poured from 75D urethane.
The hand lathed shape was a goal of Ryan and Tom, the right amount of love and attention has been given to every wheel and bearing. Lucha Wheels are the right hardness for great control in parks or on the street.
Ryan and Tom researched and developed for a long time to get the right formula for the wheels. Now the wheels have the right amount of grip and perfect measurements. 100% made in USA! I mean, just check the pictures. hese urethane wheels look clean as fuck!
The bearings are something new. These are called the Lucha Grip no-slip bearings. The bearings are made in the USA and are designed to work percet with every sort of fingerboard trucks. The wheels don´t have a back wall, so you can shred them on YTrucks as well. The bearing won´t slip out of the wheels!
Ryan and Tom researched and developed for a long time to get the right formula for the wheels. Now the wheels have the right amount of grip and perfect measurements and are ready for the scene. You don´t design and produce a good fingerboard wheels in one week so the development come to an end and the wheels are available now: Click!
Huracan is btw the name of the Maya god of fire, wind and storm. Be a storm and show some love at the Blaklist Instagram page: @blaklistboards and at the Lucha Wheels Instagram page: @luchawheels
THX a lot for this set of wheels Ryan and Tom. These are made damn good and the stock will be probably sold out quick! Keep it up guys!
