Walzen Wheels was founded by Heiko Schöller (Concretewave Skateshop, Bolzen Trucks & Hardware), Richie Loeffler (Trap Skateboards) and Frank Beste (Bolzen Trucks, GOG Trucks) in Germany.
They developed their own urethane formula which is 100% made in Europe and at the end of the summer 2015 they released the Insul freeride wheels to present the first Walzen lineup.
The Walzen Insul are 70mm freeride wheels with a wider contact patch of 40mm. They have a really good speed roll and acceleration while a buttery smooth slide is their biggest advantage.
The Insuls feature a round lip design and centerset bearing hub. You will be able to flip them and ride them the same all the way to the core. Currently the Insuls don’t come with a stone ground finish and it takes few slides to break them in.
They come in two different duros and colours: 78a green and 80a clear. I’m most excited about the clear formula because it has no colouring in it. This results with the slide characteristics being affected only by the pure urethane.
You will love Walzen Insuls for stand-up sliding and fast freeride. As soon as they are broken in they offer a very predictable and smooth slide but still have enough grip to rip through some corners. They wear very evenly and don’t flatspot easily, you can count on them for a really long time.
The Walzen Insul wheels are currently priced at 54,90 €.
