In 2021, we released our biggest collection of aggressive inline skate wheels to this day. One of the models was the Vanya Chanchikov’s signature wheel.
Vanya Chanchikov is one of the guys who cannot be defeated. Everyone knows how big he goes in skateparks. It led to him taking first places at a couple of big competitions in Russia in 2021, including Red Jam Contest and Grand Skate Tour contest.
His creative approach in combination with athleticism makes his skating stand out. And it’s especially cool to see him hitting the streets of his hometown. Vanya also designed the graphics for his pro wheel which we later digitized to put on the wheels. - Pillswheels.com. Filmed in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, 2021 by Gosha Popov.
Bonus: Ivan Chanchikov - Street Edit by Ilya Savosin
Vanya Chanchikov who goes by the full name of Ivan is not only an outstanding park skater. He also developed his skill in street skating. In 2017 and 2018 with the help of his fellows he combined all the collected clips filmed on different cameras and presented these 3-minutes of pure street shredding. Music: Playboi Carti - RIP.

The new Pills Wheels 2021 collection is online now! This year we’ve decided to release 10 models to suit all tastes and colours. It’s all the same classic white 90A polyurethane that’s proven to be great in street and park.
We’ve added a 58mm diameter. The profile of these wheels combines a rounded and flat silhouettes. So you can choose now from 57, 58, 59 and 64 mm. There’s only 1 promodel in this collection. And it is Vanya Chanchikov‘s signature wheels – V CHANCH 64mm. We believe that he has proved with his skating that he can be the best. We want his wheels to secure his status of a young and talented rider.
Also part of this release is the new PILLS X COMMUNITY collab. This is a very special model in which we paid attention to details.
