One of the core reasons Offset came into being is that most skate brands are run out of California or by people who rarely leave perfectly-polished skateparks, so the products they make and sell are designed for those situations – which is why so many wheels now are rock-hard. However, trying to use those in the average British town is an utter nightmare, so we’re always on the look-out for high-quality softer wheels to make life a bit easier on this crusty little island.

We’ve carried SML’s 78a Coffee Cruisers before, but at 92a, these new Succulents are truly all-terrain street wheels. If you’ve ever struggled skating rougher surfaces and crusty spots (which, let’s be honest, is likely the case in the UK), these will help you out a lot – without reducing your board to a mere “cruiser” or “filmer setup”.

Biltin Bearings

Abec11's Biltin bearings have been an open secret for a long time. Sought after for their integrated half-spacers and washers, these are a solid and easy to service bearing that will run and run. They even come affixed to a bolt in a dedicated tube which is designed to facilitate easier cleaning; just replace them on the bolt after a session, pour in some acetone, citrus cleaner, or surgical spirit, and shake them clean.

(Make sure you relubricate them before you put them back in your wheels, though!)

We measured the ride surface of these at a skinny 19.5mm, so they should still be relatively easy to get sideways and slide if you’re committed enough – but be aware that sliding softer wheels with a ride surface that small could result in flat spots, so it’s not necessarily recommended!

Also, like SML’s softer Coffee Cruisers, the core on these still intrudes a fair bit into the wheel, so flanged spacers like the ones built into the Tekton XT bearings won’t fit; stick with the Tekton Lites or Biltins instead.

Other than that, these are, for all intents and purposes, a “normal” street wheel – just softer.
