Wheels, Wheels, Wheels...

Not all wheels are created equal! Their performance depends greatly on their make-up. Material can range from cheap, poor performing, PVC to super high rebound urethane with excellent skating characteristics. The best wheel needs to have a reinforced urethane hub bonded to a urethane wheel material. If they are not both urethane, then the wheel will separate from the hub. At Red Star we spare no expense ensuring that our wheels and hubs are made from the highest quality urethanes. We also go the extra step to use a super high rebound urethane in our Rockets, MX-gt, and Sniper-gt wheels to make sure they have the best roll available on the market. Then comes the extra special stuff no one else has. We add specific proportions of our Glu-thane and Dura-thane depending on what type of surface the wheel is designed for. Through extensive testing we have developed the perfect ratio of Glu-thane and Dura-thane to give the best grip, roll, and wear of any wheel on the market! If you don't believe then try Red Star. Once you skate Red Star you won't accept anything else!

Dura-thane is a special additive which has been specifically formulated to make a longer lasting urethane.  
 

 

Hollow Core Technology

We use a specially designed, reinforced hollow core in our Sniper-gt wheel. This gives us torsion stength at the edges combined with the super light-weight design - giving you the fastest, best turning, and quickest stopping performace available. The hollow core also provides ultra-high performance at the wheel's surface contact point. This means that you will have the ultimate ride in speed and comfort. The hollow core combined with our other special additives provides you with the best wheel on the market!
