  • Used to set the new World Record for Fastest Slide. (Ambroise Trauet, 73.34 mph / 117.35 kph Toeside ? June 23, 2022, in Sellraintal, Tirolean Alps, Austria ? official Guinness certification expected in 2023.)

Poured in DEFCON™ ultra-high-rebound formula

• The fastest formula in the history of skateboard racing, bar none.
• Credited with virtually every significant world distance and speed record, including the official Guinness Standup mark. (Pete Connolly, 91.17 mph / 146.73 kph – Sept. 16, 2017, at The Top Speed Challenge in Quebec, Canada.)
• Defcon’s superior energy efficiency means not just higher speeds and longer push distances, but also noticeably longer battery life and rolling range on your e-board! (If they aren’t already available, ask your favorite e-board brands to offer pulley adapters fitted to the Tailwind’s Fusion hub.)
More miles per hour, distance per push, and blocks per watt! Predictable handling; slow, consistent wear.
• Available in two finely-tuned durometers –
  76A Mango: Fast, smooth, and lively underfoot. An optimal balance of properties for most surface conditions.
79A Mint: Ideal for smoother surfaces. Very fast roll with friendly slide characteristics. Excellent durability.

 

The Fusion™ core

• Integrates 15 years of advanced hub R&D.
• 46mm tall x 44mm wide – the largest and most supportive hub ever seen in a wheel this size.
• Formed from 85D fiber-reinforced thermoplastic – the toughest hub material in the industry – with robust bearing lugs.
• Deep, wide “saddle” profile regulates lateral wheel flex and supercharges edge support.
• Eight (8) lateral support beams (hollowed-out for lightness and aesthetics) combine with saddle profile to create unprecedented 3D mechanical lock with urethane.
• Support beam contours form internal “turbine blade” structure that reflects and directs Defcon’s unparalleled energy return…
– creates uniquely-efficient and perfectly-balanced dynamic rolling rebound
– turbocharges roll and enhances e-board range

Aaron Hampshire “Genome” Pro Model Deck

THE AARON HAMPSHIRE GENOME

PRO MODEL RACE BOARD AVAILABLE NOW!!
34″ x 9.25″ (86.5 cm x 23.5 cm)

The brainchild of Seismic Pro Aaron Hampshire, the Genome is a modern thoroughbred racer from tip to tip. We spared no effort in painstakingly evolving and refining the deck’s shape and contours at Seismic headquarters in Boulder, Colorado. For meticulous handcrafted manufacturing, we turned to the Rocket Longboards factory in the heart of the Swiss Alps.

A 7-ply Canadian Maple core sandwiched between two bi-axial layers of high-grade Carbon cloth makes the Genome RACE STIFF. The gradual 0.64″ (1.62 cm) elliptical concave is both comfortable and responsive. Ergonomic wheel well flares – optimized separately for the front vs. rear foot – add leverage and control.They’re milled on the underside, too, adding clearance for wheels up to 80mm tall.

A mellow W synergizes with the rear flares for an unprecedented locked-in feeling while tucking, sliding, and cornering. A 0.25″ (0.63 cm) front-loaded Rocker combines with a 5mm-deep, 2-degree flush-mount at the nose to make for an ultra-responsive deck with low ride height.

• Front-loaded Rocker with 0.64″ (1.62 cm) elliptical concave
• Ergonomic wheel well flares (milled on the underside)
• 5mm-deep, 2-degree flush-mount at the nose
• 0-degree flush-mount at the tail
• Graphic on bottom
• Not pre-gripped
• Weight 4.41 lbs. (2.0 kg)

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.
