OJ III “HOT JUICE” 60MM 78A SKATEBOARD WHEELS BY SANTA CRUZ WILLIS KIMBEL BLACK/GREEN 2-TONE
Willis Kimbel Pro
Green/Black – Creature Colours
by Santa Cruz
4 brand new OJ “Hot Juice” wheels in 2-tone black/green, very 1970s looking but also Creature colours as you’d expect since Willis is a pro on their team. He is the son of 70s pool ripper Kurt Kimbel so it seem right for him to have a 70s re-issued wheel as a pro model.
60mm diameter with a tough nylon core, made by Santa Cruz Skateboards.
Re-Issues of the iconic 1970s OJs but made softer than the originals and with an added core to keep those bearings running true.
These are soft, like 70s red Kryptonics, fast and smooth over even rough surfaces…”polo” wheels can’t compete for speed with these re-issued beauties.
If you like a wheel that really bites down hard and just won’t budge even when you’re really moving and leaning into a turn then these are worth a look. The thin outer edges are designed to deform under heavy turns, increasing gripwhen you need it most. Great for getting close to horizontal(well as close as you dare!) but without putting your hands down…Z-Boy style street cruising.
For general longboarding, transport, cruiser boards, 70s boards or even modern boards(with a riser or two for added clearance).
Superb for giant & slalom on courses demanding a good amount of “stick” in order to make the cones.
These fit on all Penny boards and are a significant upgrade from the standard wheels that come on those completes- faster and smoother!
