The 76mm x 59mm Hot Spot is the wheel of choice for the World's Fastest Man on Urethane Mischo Erban, holder of the Official IGSA Downhill Speed Record of 80.83 mph (130.08 kph). Molded in our proprietary Black Ops urethane around our advanced Mini-EC hub, it's quite possibly the fastest all-around wheel ever developed for Downhill and GS racing.
Holder of four World Speed Records, Black Ops urethane offers more grip and rebound together, with less rolling resistance, than any other formula in skateboarding history. Not too big and not too small, the Mini-EC hub preserves ample tire thickness while saving over ½-ounce per wheel, stiffening the inside edge, and super-charging inside edge rebound. Put everything together in the 76mm Hot Spot and you get a big, wide wheel with superior traction and roll; smooth, predictable handling; and the quickness of a smaller wheel.
Said multi-time World Slalom Champion Gary Fluitt, ?I threw them on for my final run in the 2010 Texas Sizzler GS, and without any testing I dropped my time by over a half second. That's an eternity in slalom racing, and it was more than enough to give me the win."
