What are Bowl Style Cruiser Wheels?

Teak Tuning is excited to announce that a new wheel shape has been released! The “Bowl Style” cruiser wheels are now available in a wide variety of colors, and even a swirl color! 

The Bowl Style wheels are larger than the “New Street” standard shape. They are perfect for the Carlsbad Cruiser Decks and the Longboard Decks

Each set of Apex Series wheels is designed and made in the USA with premium urethane. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Apex Cruiser Wheels: 

What size are the wheels?

The Bowl Wheels are 5.25mm wide and have a 8.7mm diameter, in comparison to the standard “New Street” Apex wheels that are 4.9mm wide and have a 7.7mm diameter.

What is urethane?

Urethane is a material that is used to make real skateboard wheels, and it has crossed over into the fingerboard scene. Over the years, urethane wheels have become increasingly popular with fingerboarders because of its unique feel and characteristics.

Urethane material has great shock absorption and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Urethane also has a good grip with the ground - this is what causes the “squeak” sound that many fingerboarders love. 

Do the Apex Wheels have a bearing lock?

Yes, all Apex Wheels now have a full bearing lock. This means that the bearing in the wheel will not be able to come out, except if a special bearing press is used to remove it.

What does durometer mean?

Durometer is the “hardness” of the material. The higher the durometer number, the harder the wheel. On the other hand, low durometer wheels have a softer feel. The first drop of the Apex Series wheels hits the sweet spot with a 71D durometer. They’re not too hard, and they’re not too soft - they are great for riding on all kinds of surfaces. 

Do they squeak?

Yes! Many fingerboarders love the squeak sound that urethane wheels make as you powerslide across a surface or do a sharp turn. 

Can I ride them with a regular setup as well?

Of course! Since these wheels are larger than standard wheels, most riders prefer to ride them on a Cruiser or longboard setup. However, you can ride them on any deck or trucks of your choosing.
