Go Project | OK CJ | 62mm Wheels
For the OK CJ wheel we created a brand new 62mm wheel mould exclusive to Go Project. A 62mm wheel with an elliptical profile is not currently being produced anywhere else; the perfect way to introduce CJ to our catalogue.
While Sydney's CJ Wellsmore has been enjoying our urethane (for both freestyle and aggressive) for the last couple of years; we can now call it official. CJ skates a balanced mix of street, skatepark and big-ramp so wanted a wheel size which was easily adaptable over all disciplines. CJ felt the 62's carried their speed well enough without compromising too much on acceleration. We created the urethane a little harder than our previous wheels so they are faster. The small core still allows for enough give in the urethane to create a good 'footprint' (for grip) and shock absorption.
We spent the best part of a year testing new materials for the hub. We managed to fully extract the colour pigmentation out of the core this time leaving us with a stronger hub material. We also changed the way the hub is bonded to the urethane 'tyre' so the wheel is now more resistant to de-coring. That said, the wheels have a 1 year warranty against de-coring and core fracturing incase you find an anomaly!
With a recent trend towards larger elliptical shaped wheels, the industry has been left with a graveyard of smaller and flatter wheel moulds. We are proud to present to you something entirely new.
