good performance, poor longevity
September 22, 2011
I like the performance of this wheel, fast, great grip and a 'feel' for the playing surface. Unfortunately they only lasted me about 2 indoor seasons playing twice a week. I am a heavier guy (220) and skate hard with a lot of force with aggressive stops and starts and hard turns. After about 4 months of playing on indoor tile I could feel the wheels flexing on me. When I accelerate or stop hard I can feel the wheel flexing beneath the force in a discomforting way. I inspected the wheels and the urethane is seperating from the plastic core. The wheels are not falling apart but you flex the wheels by hand and see seperation between the core and the wheel. One great characterisitic of this wheel is how you can 'feel' the surface, similar to 'feeling' the ice through your skates in ice hockey. But having this extra sensory characteristic amplified the seperation problem and I had to change them out to be confident on my feet. To be honest they were not much faster or grippier than my go-to-wheel the labeda gripper, but this new Hot Shot had a better 'feel' for the surface. If you are lighter or less aggressive you may have a better or longer-lasting experience with this wheel choice. I am now using the Labeda Addiction and am very happy.

Are you all out of 76mm & 80mm in these?
By Customer Service on July 8, 2014

Answer:
Yes, this wheel has been replaced with the new line of Rink Rat Wheels. The direct replacement for the Hot Shot Wheel is the Rink Rat Identity Conflict. You may also consider the Rink Rat Identity Krysis
