Ever complained about the snow harshing your gnar? Snow doesn’t phase Dre “Grizzly” Nubine one bit as he tears down a Colorado mountain pass at speeds in excess of 50mph — with a little help from Seismic’s top-secret new speed/freeride urethane formula. Bright white to match the weather conditions!
Mischo Erban has been pioneering longboarding since man of you were in grade school! This guy is a true racer and has shown it with countless podiums on the world circuit and even a few titles worthy of boasting. This is a flashback to his 2011 season where he won the IGSA World Championship Title in Brazil.
“Still hanging in by tooth and nail the, 2011 season was another to remember! I was becoming more tuned into my skateboard setup and confidence and perseverance paid off with the World Champion Title being seized on my most favorite track in Teutonia, Brazil!
Big Thanks to Fred Baumann, Ronin Trucks, GMR Skateboards, Dan Gesmer at Seismic, Xtreme Board Shop Glendora, Knucklenuts and Crocan for the video edit!”

The Landslide is a very similar sized wheel to the purple Durian, that I’ve always been a fan of but these have just a little wider contact patch. Hands down the wheels did seem to drift a little too much but I’m sure its just my technique.

Check out this Rad video from Team riders Stephan Reinhardt, Mark Riley, Nick Delgado, and Nate Ryan hit the streets of Boulder, Colorado on their longboards to test the prototype Seismic 75mm double-radius wheels in the new Seismic freeride formula. Stephan even got a chance to ride a prototype Seismic 36-inch double kick!
These wheels allow you to do really smooth and consistent slides. They are really controllable and they will easily allow you to pull out standies. They also leave thick thane lines.
These wheels are poured in Seismic’s Elixir Urethane. A formula designed specifically for modern freeride. Coming out soon, stay tunned!!!
