Bamboo Skateboards Releases Corn-Based Wheels

Bamboo Skateboards Launches Eco-Friendly Wheels

Press Release:

OCEANSIDE, CAJune 12, 2013 Bamboo Skateboards, the sustainable skateboard manufacturer and brand, has released a new line of eco-friendly downhill wheels. The Blur wheels are just as they sound: FAST! The wheels have a square lip design to help with control at high speeds and will be paired with the company’s pintail and directional drop through longboard shapes. They are 70mm x 55mm, 78a durometer, and a deep red color with gold hub.

The wheels are not only bigger and better, but unlike typical wheels made of urethane, the corn-based wheels utilize a new corn fermentation process to offset the usage of petroleum.  “While it doesn’t eliminate the need for petroleum-based ingredients, it’s definitely a step in the right direction for those who care about helping to reduce the industry’s dependence on petroleum based products,” states Mark Olson, marketing director for Bamboo Skateboards.

The Blur wheels will be available on June 10th and can be purchased separately or with completes.  Check them out at bambooskateboards.com
