Real Value: BONES may not be the lowest-priced wheel, but BONES'S abrasion test chart shows why they are the best value. After all, what good is a cheaper wheel if it flat spots the first day? BONES wheels offer the best combination of product performance, durability, quality, and customer service available today. In other words, you might be able to find a lower price, but never a better value.
BONES Strength: All BONES WHEEL unique formulas are solely developed and produced in their own manufacturing plant located in Santa Barbara, CA. Using drastically different physical and engineering properties for each formula, BONES creates unique urethanes for specific applications of skateboarding.
ABOUT SKATEPARK FORMULA (SPF)
Skatepark Formula (SPF) is very high quality urethane specifically formulated to resist flatspotting on slick or smooth surfaces while maintaining a higher rebound for a quicker response and a faster roll.
Skatepark Formula has a high resistance to abrasion while not compromising hardness and slideability. Skatepark Formula wheels grip better on slick surfaces, are almost impossible to flatspot, and are the fastest, longest lasting wheel on the market today.
ABOUT DUROMETER B SCALE
Shore Durometer A Scale is good, but it does not cover the entire range of skate wheel hardness and is very limited because the scale goes from 1 to 100 and anything over 95A does not compute accurately.
Shore Durometer B Scale is perfect for skate wheels because:
- It is very similar to the A Scale, but reads 20 points lower, allowing the useful scale to be extended by 20 points, which covers the entire hardness range of skate wheels in one scale. It uses the same soft spring as the A Gauge, but the conical gauge needle of the D Scale.
- Because the spring is soft, the B Scale gauge needle does not puncture the skin of the wheel surface, resulting in the same reliable reading as the A Scale does.
Shore Durometer D Scale is designed for hard rubbers and rock hard urethanes, not soft, bouncy urethanes that are used in skate wheels. It has a very stiff spring behind its sharp conical needle and often punctures the skin of the wheel being measured, this resulting in 5-10 points softer reading than is correct. Thus, Shore D Scale should not be used for wheels in the useful skate wheel range.
