Comments: I just got these wheels for my Bauer vapor xr2s and they are literally the best wheels for outdoor use on the market. Just get them, if you play outside its worth the money, asphalt and regular concrete is perfect for these wheels.
From: Bryan, MO
Comments: Only outdoor wheel I have used and I am very impressed. Hold up well,
great grip! Little slick in extreme cold weather but that's to be expected.
From: Mark, NJ
Comments: I'm a very large guy, 6'4 and 270lbs. I've destroyed lesser wheels in a single skate. I was recommended these by IW, and have put over 500KMs on them, with practically no appreciable wear. I skate in one of the worst cities for road conditions in Canada, and these wheels have taken constant abuse without any issues whatsoever. I skate for commuting and fitness, I don't play hockey. If you're big, and skate rough roads, these are your wheels.
Comments: The best wheels for outdoor period. Last the longest, and well priced, and will out perform anything else!
From: Chris, NY
Comments: These wheel are the best outdoor wheels you can get, they dont wear down as quick on rough outdoor surfaces. Even at 5.95/wheel, thats $48+Shipping per set, thats still cheaper compared to other brand wheels I was buying for $25-$30 a set, but burning through them three times faster. As others have pointed out, on waxed or glossy indoor surfaces, you will slide alot, these are OUTDOOR wheels, I use them only for outdoors, and I call them the "Killer Tangerines".
From: William, Virginia Beach, VA, USA
Comments:I bought these wheels because I played all lasted summer in a school parking lot which had quite a rough surface. They worked quite well in the parking lot but recently I've started skating on a very nice outdoor surface and I have virtually no control. They are very fast wheels but there is a reason they have asphalt in the title. So if you're going to be skating on a smooth surface get a softer wheel with more grip or you won't be able to turn hard or stop without losing control.
Comments:These wheels are great! I use them on standard roller-blades and played on asphalt twice a week last fall and this spring. I would play on heavy rough asphalt. As long as you rotate them regularly on your blades you will get great use out of them!
Comments:I have these wheels on my skates right now. I have done a lot of abuse to these wheels and they have lasted much longer than any other wheel I have ever used. They also feel really fast. This might be due to the hardness of the wheel. Unlike the other comments, I think the wheels feel super slippery. I can't turn too hard in any direction because I start to slide. If you are skating fast and then hockey stop, you slide for days. So, moving quickly in these wheels becomes more difficult the deeper you get into the rubber of the wheel. It just keeps getting slipperier and slipperier. Overall, I like the wheel, but when I replace these I am going to get a cheaper brand with the same hardness for the two inside wheels and some 82A's for the outside wheels for a little more grip. I definitely wouldn't mind getting these wheels again, but I go through wheels so quickly that I need to think about price more than anything.

Comments:I recently bought a pair of CCM Vector 06 from this website. These skates came with indoor wheels (Rink Rat Hot Shot). Since I like to skate around the neighborhood just to stay in shape, I purchased these Labeda Asphalt Wheels. They perform well right out of the box. They are smooth and fast. I paired them with Bones 608 Bearings. The Labeda's spin really well with this bearing.
From: Jay, Chicago
Comments:These wheels are by far the best outdoor wheel you can buy. I use them when playing hockey and also for recreational street skating. I have yet to find another wheel that offers the same durability and performance of the Labeda Asphalt wheel.
Comments:these wheels are by far the best for outdoor usage. No breaking in, and a very fair balance between slide and grip on your average outdoor surfaces. They do not wear down as fast as other wheels as well. I'd rather stay home if I had to wear anything else.
Comments:These wheels are amazing. I never have had a wheel be able to withstand my constant abuse as what I have given these. I am about 210 lbs and play a very aggressive style of hockey. I play on a fairly smooth surface but it went right through the other wheels that I have bought. These, are preforming like champs. Just get them, what a great price!
From: Chad, Indiana
Comments:these wheels are great! they grippy and hard, and dont wear down as fast as most wheels do outside. if you are looking for a great wheel to use outside and not worry about the wheel wearing down then this is your wheel. im about 210 pounds and i have had these wheels playing outside 3 days a week and they have lasted me about 2 months
