SONY DSC[/caption] The range of wheels available for our shredding keep on growing, new wheels come and go, new formulas and compounds get poured and we keep on burning though them, sometimes in all the hype of the next best thing, we forget the simpler things time has forgotten. Metro have been around for sometime now and have never been huge on the scene, concentrating on freeriding and sideways action they have made a few wheels with a good thane and simple design. Along with the micro version of the Motion they come in 6 colours and 3 duros. thats plenty of choice when any one will do. Rumurs have it that they are made along side Otang in the same warehouse and it seems that the consistent predictable slide features have passed over to the metros urathane in the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOHQlPINaUM
OVERALL RATING of the Metro Motions - 8 out of 10 The 3rd Degree - Metro Motions might have been forgotten recently but they are still at the top of their game, the Motions provided "straight out of the box" slide-ability second to non, great roll speed and transition into and out of drift. The wear was very good, but we need to remember that Josh is about 60kg, floats like a butterfly when getting sideways and is not going to core his wheels in a day, even if he try'd. The single stack he on test day did result in a massive chunk coming off the wheel, not uncommon in today's market of wheels but still important to recognize as it showed that the wheel isn't perfect. Underrated and off the hook? Yes. Josh was stoked on the wheels and you will be too, get in to the Hopshop and choose your flavor, you wont be disappointed, just stay away from charging gutters.
