MYCK Wheels x Team Carat

up : Myck Wheels with Team Carat Labels

You surely know the Myck wheels (photo below), and what we got here is a funny (strange ?) story : The wheels you can see above are basically Myck wheels with a new label on it.

The Team Carat (Korea) who sell them just bought some Myck wheels, decided to put a design on them (the concept of the Myck wheels is to be sold ‘blank’, without any design) and sell them as their product.

Wheel Love who is producing Myck Wheels found the idea great ! What an original reaction to what we could called a rip. Read the story on their blog.

Myck wheels

MYCK Wheels
From Wheel_Love

Asia’s most dynamic rolling conglomerate, ‘Wheel_Love’, shakes up the scene once again with their newest rollerblading product ‘MYCK’.

W_L achieved a degree of international notoriety earlier this year with their first venture, ‘Blanks’ wheels, a product of unparalleled performance and cost. Unfortunately for European and American scenes, ‘Blanks’ were only on sale in South East Asia, where they managed to sell out in a little over 2 months.

After the success of Blanks, company owners Sukeats and Yeng returned to the drawing board, and now, after months of planning and research, they are proud to unveil their ‘MYCK’ wheel line.

The name refers to four colours (Magenta, Yellow, Cyan and Black) revered by design-buffs everywhere as the only colours needed to create every other colour in existence. Except maybe neon black.

The first line is on sale now in limited numbers and comes in Red, Black, Green and Blue. The second line will feature two new additional colours with the two less popular colours forced into retirement. ‘MYCK’ wheels place the emphasis on bright, vibrant colours that last, rather than vague prints that disappear after a few sessions.

The cheapest wheels on the market are the result of intense supplier sourcing and market connections. MYCK wheels will be sold for RM50 a set in Malaysia, with a suggested export retail value of €12 or US$15 for a four pack.

Blank Wheels from Malaysia

blank wheels

The wheels beneath our feet are by far the most important parts of our skates. Sadly, in Malaysia, these bits of rubber cost a bomb! A good 4-pack set of Mindgames can easily set you back a whopping RM100. And with the Malaysian heat, badly tarred roads and freestyle frames, wheels rarely see past their 3rd month.

Well, the answer is at hand. Blanks, an in-house brand of ‘no-frills’ wheels co-developed by Rupert Rage/Cool Element and Wheel Love are here to the rescue of poor Malaysian rollerbladers! Priced at RM30 for pack of 4, these 55mm / 88a wheels will keep you rolling with minimal cost to your wallet.
