If you are looking for wheels to improve your stability and footwork- look no further!
ADONIS is doing what no other wheel manufacturer is. With 50mm Micro Wheels, you realize a number of benefits that help improve your skills and stamina.
*Lower Center of Gravity
The lower profile gets you closer to the ground giving you more stable agility on your skates. Better agility is good for all aspects of skating from Derby to Rhythm. Getting low is critical for keeping you on your feet and harder to knock over. The lower profile also allows you to utilize a narrow wheel properly. Many people who have tried traditional diameter wheels in skinny or super skinny form complain about balance and the ability to avoid ankle injuries. Think of skinny, large diameter wheels as lifting a radio flyer wagon. You will have less surface area to distribute your weight and balance on the ground making it easier to tip over around corners or through awkward manuevers. When you use a smaller wheel, your center of gravity is lowered and you can get away with a skinnier wheel without side affects.
Reduced weight is another benefit of the ADONIS low profile design. ADONIS skate wheels are the lightest Hubd wheel on the market! Reducing the overall mass of your skates will help increase your response, recovery and give you an overall better skating experience! This reduces size and weight will take the sluggish response out of your feet. You may not notice it until you try them, but you will definitely be able to tell a difference. This dramatic improvement in response time will allow you to start and stop faster, change direction quicker, recover from a misstep easier and jump higher.
Many people ask, Won't small wheels slow me down? The answer is no. We find many skaters are actually faster on ADONIS wheels because it takes less effort to do the same work. Putting in the same effort as larger wheels will increase your performance. Another thing to take note is that derby is not speed skating! While some speed is important, setting land speed records are not neccessary and response and agility is much more important.

These wheels are unreal! Acceleration is effortless, and even being a small 95a, they grip better than every other 'hard' wheel I have used so far, but still not over the top. They grip enough when you need them too, and that grip feels predictable. It's a really nice balance.
My lap times are much faster and I'm more confident at high speeds on the corners now. I haven't noticed a drop in top speed, but the improved acceleration was immediately noticeable. Transitions practically take care of themselves, and stability feels much better, being slightly lower to the ground. As a bit of a newbie to quad skating, I can now happily skate around just on my back wheels with these, and still feel in control compared to larger wheels. These have really improved my footwork.
Being a smaller wheel, and having to spin much faster and work harder, you should definitely combine these with some high quality bearings to get the most out of them. They come with their own spacers to allow you to tighten up a bit more, however, I'd say there is still some TINY differences between each hubs tolerance, and you may find that you have to back off ever so slightly on the odd wheel so that you're not pinching the bearings and impacting their performance.
Overall, if you're considering these wheels, just stop thinking and buy them!!!
