Nearly 10 years ago, Abec 11 helped to usher in a new generation of skateboard wheels specifically designed for longboards and racing. Created by longboard racer Chris Chaput, Abec 11 was one of the first to re-pioneer / re-enginner the once popular, ultra wide, low profile wheel designs that have become common place in longboarding today, Abec 11 was and remains a progressive, driving, force in both longboard wheel development and the longboarding industry as a whole. Governed by the principles of speed and grip, Abec 11 has won more downhill longboard podiums than any other brand and their signature Abec 11 green has become a world-wide standard for longboard wheel quality. Whether you are looking for a set of longboard wheels for cruising, carving or racing, do what the longboard pros do and load up a set of Abec 11 wheels, for the win.
Maintaining race focused speed and adding in some of the most technically solid all around longboard wheel shapes we have seen yet, Retro longboard wheels are one of our go-to's for freestyle, freeride and all rides longboard.
