For skaters learning to slide
One way of learning how to slide is use a hard wheel. It is easier to initiate the slide, you can hold it longer, giving you more options to learn different types of slide. More importantly, by doing the actual slide, you are engaging your muscle memory, it is an important part of learning. Best to learn on a smooth road and not in the rain, these wheels are too slippery in the rain.
The feel of this wheel in a slide can be described as an ice slide on top of the road. The result is big long slides, and steezy tricks. If you want up up your slide game, or do technical slides, this is your wheel. Not recommended for fast freeride, unless you want to kiss a guard rail.
For dance or freestyle skaters
