Don't let the name Mango and Mint fool you into complacency. This is a fast wheel.
Seismic are one of the few wheel makers that use their own formulas. The wheel factories all have standard urethane they offer to everyone, and most brands don't have the skill or patience to test and make their own urethane. This is why so many wheels feel the same, because they are!. Seismic have created a new urethane that should be called "reach for the toilet paper fast" thane. They call it Defcon.
These wheels are explosively fast with predictable grip to slip.
BlackOps formula: ultimate balance of speed and grip • extreme traction fresh • buttery and smooth broken-in • comfortable and predictable.
Defcon formula: Guinness World Record speed • directional slide • long-lasting grip • slow, consistent wear
Contact Patch: 52mm
Lip Profile: Sharp
Core Placement: Offset
Wheel Surface: Smooth
Is how a wheel made important?
Every part of a Seismic wheel has been designed and planned. The hub/core of the wheel is the foundation of a great wheel. The 69mm Hot Spot uses what Seismic call their advanced Mini-EC hub, it’s ideal for fast freeride, technical downhill, Tight and Hybrid slalom, and general-purpose cruising.
Not too big and not too small, the Mini-EC hub preserves ample tire thickness while saving over 15 grams per wheel, stiffening the inside edge, and super-charging inside edge rebound.
It is a wheel you have to buy and try to understand how great it really is!
