Malaya Street Bombers longboard wheels – Recently our buddy from Italy, Marcus Aldinucci got the Malaya Street Bombers longboard wheels for testing. These are fairly new on the market, first sets were offered for purchase in October this year. I was very interested to hear about how the Malaya Street Bombers perform so I hooked up with Marcus for a quick review.
The Malaya Street Bombers are 73mm big downhill oriented longboard wheels with a duro of 80a and an offset bearing hub. They have a 59mm contact patch, big lips and sharp edges for maximum grip. For now, these wheels come in poured with a white urethane formula named Malaya Race Formula (MRF).
On the first two runs, Marcus says they had a great grip while the slides were smooth and consistent right out of the box. After breaking them in they lost a bit of that initial grip but were still able to stick fairly well. At this point they became a great wheel for faster freeride as well.
The Malaya Street Bombers have a great roll speed and don’t wear down very much, Marcus says. It seams like they might be his favourite choice of wheel for the next year’s racing season.
After many runs on them, Marcus also tried skating them reversed and says the initial strong grip was back for another run. Naturally, due to the offset bearing hub, the overall truck width got smaller providing more grip and he was able to skate faster lines this way.
The Malaya Street Bombers are priced at around 50,00 $ and are currently not available for purchase in European stores. If you want to order a set of these get in touch with the Malaya Street Bombers crew on Facebook.
