most complain the aka wheels crack, but I love it cause it is not as soft as others.

harder wheels brings a lot of advantage in handling, landing off big air, tires stay flatter as it turns, wheels bearings lasts longer, more efficient drive and many more.

softer wheels will not crack definitely but those wheels after 2 or 3 races you find the shape badly distorted and cannot be reuse again. And it also at (-) to all above.
