Guide Review - Bones STF Skateboarding Wheels
Bones STFs look like regular street wheels - tread, not too heavy, on the smaller side. But what about this STF formula? Well, first off, if you are new to skateboarding, this makes picking out the hardness for your wheels nice and easy if you ride mostly street, then grab a set of these! No having to figure out if you want 100a, or 92.653a, or But the STF formula is better than just a simplifier it actually seems to work! For example, Bones STF wheels are supposed to never flatspot. Thats a big claim, but so far, it seems to be true. I tried out the 54mm Bones STFs, and never had a problem at all. Flatspots suck generally, youve just killed your wheels, and you end up getting a whole new set. If you slide a lot, I couldnt imagine getting anything else.
However, if you like to use your same skateboard to hit up the skate park sometimes and maybe ride ramps, Bones STFs might be wasted money for you. Not completely, because these wheels are pretty versatile, like I said, but especially for skate parks, you might want to look at Bones SPFs instead. Not that STFs are bad for skate parks, but they arent exactly great, either.
Otherwise, for most street skaters out there, I highly recommend these Bones STFs!
