The Abec 11 83mm Flywheels are a fast wheel with racing in mind. The long diameter of the wheel allow one to attain higher speeds when at full tilt. Its narrow contact patch, large core and shallow urethane depth make for a light (relative to its size) and extremely fast wheel. This is due to the shallow urethane depth supported by the large core which allows for minimal urethane deformity and hence minimal sluggishness when in contact with the road surface.
Being a centerset wheel fitted with Abec 11′s classic thane and rounded lips, the wheel has a smooth controlled slide with an even wear. However the Flywheel retains a surprising amount of grip and is often used as a high end race wheel, due to its speed.
