The Abec 11 Sick Sicks are a small grippy wheel that will offer a smooth slide once worn in. Made from the same urethane as the super buttery Powerballs, the Sick Sicks offer a more controllable slide due to their sharp lips and wider contact patch, which gives the wheel more traction.
The Sick Sicks are small and nippy wheels with an offset core. Smaller wheels are generally easier to slide and the offset core ensures an easy slide initiation.
All in all, the Sick Sicks are a great freeride wheel for those wanting a smooth but controlled slide, however due to the initial smooth, grippy layer, they also make for fun cruising and carving wheels.
