We’re happy to officially announce our new guest rider: Cj Wellsmore. After a year of tweaking and testing Our ‘OK CJ’ 62mm pro wheel is now available. We made the 62mm rounded-radius wheel mould from scratch in order to keep our unique Go urethane. - Go Project.
For the OK CJ wheel we created a brand new 62mm wheel mould exclusive to Go Project. A 62mm wheel with an elliptical profile is not currently being produced anywhere else; the perfect way to introduce CJ to our catalogue.
While Sydney’s CJ Wellsmore has been enjoying our urethane (for both freestyle and aggressive) for the last couple of years; we can now call it official. CJ skates a balanced mix of street, skatepark and big-ramp so wanted a wheel size which was easily adaptable over all disciplines. CJ felt the 62’s carried their speed well enough without compromising too much on acceleration. We created the urethane a little harder than our previous wheels so they are faster. The small core still allows for enough give in the urethane to create a good ‘footprint’ (for grip) and shock absorption.
We spent the best part of a year testing new materials for the hub. We managed to fully extract the colour pigmentation out of the core this time leaving us with a stronger hub material. We also changed the way the hub is bonded to the urethane ’tyre’ so the wheel is now more resistant to de-coring. That said, the wheels have a lifetime warranty against de-coring and core fracturing incase you find an anomaly!
With a recent trend towards larger elliptical shaped wheels, the industry has been left with a graveyard of smaller and flatter wheel moulds. We are proud to present to you something entirely new.
Go Project wheels come with Go Project bearing spacers because for the most efficient ride, the length of your spacer and the gap between your bearings must be equally matched.
