If rain, flash floods, or simply copious amounts of water are keeping you from skating, then pick up a set of Eastside Rain longboard skateboard wheels.
These wheels have specially made grooves that act as treads, much like car tires. The grooves help to break up the water on the ground, in order to prevent hydroplaning.
You can ride these wheels in the rain and in spotty conditions where the road is wet and dry in spots. The H2O wheels also have a stoneground finish for smoother slides in spotty conditions.
Make sure to pick up a bearing cleaning kit or an extra set of bearings to ride in the rain. The EastSide H2O Rain wheels allow you to stick lines, control your slides, and most important: skate in the rain! So get wet and go skate!
Centerset for even wear and to keep water away from the bearings. To make them respond in the rain, we've grooved 2 deep lines of insets around the wheel. This reduces hydroplaning by displacing the water on the road and providing the traction you need to stick your line. And YES, THEY DO WORK! Also when you drift or intentionally slide, its easier to hook back up smoothly and continue on with speed. They work best on completely wet roads and last a very long time if never ridden on dry pavement. The 70mm size allows for faster acceleration out of turns than bigger wheels. A great match for any longboard including commuter boards to keep you safe in the rain with superior control.
