Upgrade your longboard, Wheel Shields keep skaters dry on wet roads, while helping to eliminate wheel bite.
- Splash Protection, typically when skating on wet roads, your wheels will fling dirty water all over your clothes. Wheel Shields act similar to a mud flap and keep you dry. Your longboard is now a versatile all-weather transportation vehicle.
- Wheel bite elimination, wheel bite occurs during a hard turn when the bottom of the board hits the top of the wheel. By creating a barrier around each wheel, Wheel Shields eliminate wheel bite and allow wheels to rotate freely.
- Longer bearing life, Wheel Shields fit snugly against the outer bearing of each wheel, without creating additional friction. This keeps water from entering the bearing, protecting it from rust and increasing usable life.
- End shoe bite, you will no longer accidentally step on your wheels, which can happen while doing new tricks or plain not paying attention.
- Prevent locking wheels. If you're into downhill skating, you'll no longer lock wheels with other riders. Their wheels will lock against yours, but your wheels will keep rotating because they are protected by Wheel Shields, giving you the confidence to skate tighter lines around the opposition.
