Guide Review - Bones SPF Standards Skateboarding Wheels
Bones SPF wheels dont flatspot. At least, thats the claim and they worked for me. I tried out the 56mms and the 58mms. In talking to other riders who have ridden Bones SPFs, I found one guy who managed a flatspot once in two years of riding them. He actually hit something, and that did it for him. But only one person in all Ive talked to, and once in two years, is pretty good!
The bones SPF formula seems to me to be about the perfect hardness and width for riding in skate parks. Looking through wheels and trying to figure out if you want 100a or 98a can be confusing and frustrating. If you arent sure what hardness you want, but plan to ride mostly park, these Bones SPF wheels are about the best idea Ive seen. I highly recommend them.
That said, if you plan on riding street, park, and anything else you find, and dont have the money to own two skateboards, these wheels might not be the best choice. However, if you ride mostly park, I would recommend them. If street is your style, check out Bones STFs instead.
