Rock Classic Lines With a Modern Roll

A high-performance ride with that retro vibe… on 3DM wheels by Seismic!

In the early 2000s, 3DM introduced big updates on classic 1970s race wheel shapes… and the results utterly dominated international slalom and downhill competition for many years.  Seismic took over 3DM in 2004 and added fresh spins to the 62mm Cambria, 68mm Avalon, and 75mm Avila.

Seismic is stoked to once again offer these classic wheel shapes in a rainbow of beautiful colors poured in our Premium Clear™ formula: the best clear urethane on the market – smooth, fast, and grippy! (White and smoke color options also available.)

The 62mm by 45mm Cambria is perfect for when you want speed and grip but don’t need to go big and burly. Used on most of the boards seen in the 2005 feature film “Lords of Dogtown.” Great for all-purpose longboarding, cruising, and Old School styling, and also one of the world’s best Tight Slalom wheels.

The 68mm by 55mm Avalon is named after a legendary slalom racing site on California’s Catalina Island. Great for all-purpose longboarding, cruising, and Old School styling, and also one of the world’s best all-around slalom wheels – in the  early and middle 2000s, the Avalon won more elite races than all other brands combined!

 

The 75mm by 65mm Avila, Introduced in 2002, is the original big, wide wheel, and the template for many race wheel designs that followed. Weighing more than 1/2-pound each, the Avilas excel on long courses due to their tremendous roll speed and inertia. Great for all-purpose longboarding and cruising, and among the world’s best wheels for racing disciplines including GS, DH, luge and beyond.

Seismic introduces Tekton™ bearings

The bearing behind the Official IGSA Downhill Speed World Record!

Tekton Bearings

Boulder, CO – After more than two years in development, Seismic is proud to unveil the patent-pending Tekton™ bearing – the bearing behind the Official IGSA Downhill Speed World Record. (Click here to witness the awesome feat on YouTube.)

Said 2009 World Cup Champion Mischo Erban, who set the new record of 80.83mph last fall, “Tekton bearings roll fast, hold alignment better and stay cleaner, longer. It’s that simple!”

“The difference is the wide flange at the ends of the integrated half-spacers,” said Seismic founder/owner Dan Gesmer. “The big, flat contact surfaces square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels.”

“Once coupled, the Tektons literally block themselves from sitting or rocking out of alignment, so they stay straighter than any other bearing system ever,” Gesmer added. “Your wheels roll faster with better control, while the bearings last longer and stay quieter!”

According to Neil Sload of Focus Supply, one of the world’s leading suppliers of bearings to top pro skateboard brands, “The Seismic Tekton is by far the most technical skateboard bearing I’ve ever seen produced.”

“It wasn’t easy to find a bearing factory capable of manufacturing this design,” Gesmer continued. “The integral flanged half-spacers need to be custom-machined, not just cut from a stock steel tube.”

Tekton Bearings

Tektons should not be confused with bearings that have their inner races stretched on one side to form a simple half-spacer. Sometimes called “industrial” bearings, these have been used in pre-assembled skateboards since the 1970s, and more recently for racing, but they’re still vulnerable to misalignment.

The diameter of the Tektons’ flanged contact surfaces is up to 35% larger compared to bearings coupled with floating spacers, and up to 23% larger compared to bearings with stretched inner races. This translates to exponentially better correction for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness.

“I have total confidence in their ability to push extreme speeds – 80mph and beyond!” said Erban.

Tekton bearings, rated at ABEC-7, are precisely dimensioned to provide superior alignment safeguards in all modern high-performance skateboard wheels. Features include steel balls, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and a proprietary lubricant combining both oil and grease.

The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination, and it’s stepped between the bearing and the flange to save weight. (A set of Tektons weighs the same as a set of conventional bearings with simple floating spacers.) On the side opposite the flange, the inner race extends 0.5mm to form a thin integrated washer.Tekton Bearings

Like all Seismic wheels, trucks, and decks, Tekton bearings are available from finer skate stores and online at www.seismicskate.com. No bearing spacers, axle washers, or World Record budgets required.
