88 is an ode to 1980’s pop culture – one of the best times in history for skating, music, and movies – Back to the Future, Michael Jackson, and Top Gun.
88 Wheel Co is the coming together of Boa Wheels and Pantheon Longboards. We’ve applied our knowledge gained from years of experience in the industry and set out to create innovation and excellence in skateboard wheel design and manufacturing. From a technical standpoint, we are taking some slightly different, new proprietary manufacturing approaches that improve the quality of our wheels when compared to what is available today.
What this means to riders is that you can count on our wheels to not only perform their best but also be 99.9% free of defects – resistance to chunking, damn near elimination of those ugly bubbles, and no chemical residue or swirling from the manufacturing process. Our proprietary urethane is a culmination of years of development and is soft and plush with excellent speed and slide control.
Our core is lightweight and tough, with a precision bearing seat so that your wheels stay as true as possible and wear evenly. You can count on 88’s wheels to perform all the way down to the core. Every wheel we offer has been specially engineered and tested for a purpose.
