Hey, hello and welcome to a new product blog right here on fingerboardTV.
Today we will take a trip to Canada. So far awy 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 this one. Matt took many steps of evolution with Joycult and today we will look at some of his latest creations: LITE 3.0 PK 60D
And one more:
So what to tell you about these wheels?
The shape of the wheels is called the LITE 3.0. The wheels are not as small as 90th wheels but even not as big as bowlwheels. 3.0 is the third and final rendition of the 2017 line. Revamped and cleaned up for 2020. The shapes are to spec, beefier lock system and as always our classic Joycult F3 Formula.
The color is purple/white swirl. Just check out the images and you know what I mean. The color of the wheels looks just like a creamy dream. The shape is clean and sharp like a knife. Well done! A perfectrendition of the previous line.
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.
the wheels are packed in this a little Joycult bag. Looks dope. 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!

Hello fingerboarders from all over the world! Say “HI!” to fingerboarding in Russia again!
It seems like fingerboarding in Russia too and it´s getting bigger and bigger. You still see a lot of new videos on YouTube of people you haven´t seen before and on instagram are even more russian fingerboard brands. So hopefully there is a growing scene in Russia, not only because of Corona. Every time I check out the ProFB shop website I see a lot of great products made by brands from Russia. Too bad I don´t understand the language on so many russian fingerboard websites.
So this is not the first time for russian fingerboard products here on fingerboardTV. The last time I´ve featured Darkwood Fingerboards on this site was with some really nice fingerboard deck. Since Darkwood is an evolving fingerboard company there are now fingerboard wheels available too.
And today we will take a look at some really modern wheels: 90th fingerboarding wheels! A little back to the future vibe is floating around us. So let´s have a look at these greeeeeeen wheels:
And one more:
Talking about modern fingerboarding and 90th wheels!? Well, yes. In the 90th really small wheels were hip. Super baggy clothes and just super small wheels. And like every trend is coming back some years later, it´s the same with these wheels. 90th wheels are hot and these wheels are getting more and more popular in the fingerboard scene. Darkwood Fingerboards is not the only brand to offer wheels in this size.
The wheels are about 6.3x5mm big. and with this size and this shape of the wheels you get true 90th feelings. These wheels are professional urethane fingerboard wheels. They creak realistically on wood, concrete and stone. Equipped with ABEC7 bearings you ride smoothly on all surfaces. The wheels fit to Brr, Ytrucks and Dynamics. For other fingerboard trucks you better use the Fingerboardstore washer. these weheels give you the ultimate 90th feeling with some super hyped acid green color.
With these wheels you get a realistic feeling. The urethane fits perfect on the bearing. Get some wheels NOW: CLICK! If you don´t like this soft pink color, there are other colors available as well. Just browse around the webshop. This pack of wheels was combined with a tuning set. The tuning set in the package contains some boardrails with screws and some classic truck tuning + stickers.
Get in contact with Dwarkwood Fingerboards on:
and support the fingerboard scene in Russia. Even if you won´t buy a set of wheels like this at Darkwood, check out some pictures and clips on YouTube and Instagram and give some likes and write down some comments. Only an active community is a good community. Only this will let the international scene grow together
THX a lot for this big package. More product blogs are about to come soon.
