Review: Flatface G7A & Flatface G7O

The Flatface G7 wheels feature a dual-bearing design that allows for . I noticed a major difference in comparing some of the older Flatface wheel models to the G7's. In my own experience, they spin much smoother, and faster than the older models. There is a little bit of difference between the materials. I found that the G7O's felt a little bit harder than the G7A wheels. Also, the G7O's seemed to be much quieter. However, the G7A wheels spun faster, and longer than my set of G7O's. Overall, the Flatface G7 Wheels are the best wheels that I have used to date.

New Flatface Site! Flatface DVD soon!

Flatface has released a new site layout. This marks a shift from using the osCommerce engine before to an engine by Interspire. According to Mike Schneider, the owner of Flatface, the new site will provide more flexibility and control, as well as let customers view products that are not in stock. I really like the new layout!


By the way,

The Flatface Team DVD will be released shortly!! The movie has been in the making for quite some time, and was set to be released probably 20 or more times. But the wait is finally over!

Flex Tape 2.0?!?

Here are some pictures of the new No-Comply Griptape (on top) in comparison to the old No-Comply Flex Tape (the bottom). According to Todd from No-Comply, the new tape is a little bit thicker, and has a softer feel to it. Once Todd releases the tape, be sure to buy some!
