SURE-GRIP Zombie Low Wheel
The Zombie is SURE-GRIP´s flagship! What is so special about that wheel? At this wheel, nothing was left to chance. The alu-hub is milled out of one solid piece of aluminum. This makes it extremely rigid and the bearings are sitting perfectly in the hub.
SURE GRIP's best Urethane is applied in a special manufacturing process to the hub while maintaining an accurate schedule. For conventional wheels there is a time distance of several hours or days between the casting of the hub and the application of the urethane. The production of wheels depends on external factors such as temperature and humidity. The urethane of all zombie wheels is applied at the same daytime. The single wheel manufacturing process always takes place on one workday, etc. The consumer can feel this almost exaggerated accuracy. Because every wheel from each production batch has the same quality.
The Zombie Low comes in 58mm diameter which is unusual in RollerDerby. Compared to its large brothers it is faster in acceleration and more agile. The rigid hub helps to keep speed on the straight. It also helps doing plow- and hockey-stops, which are absolutely no problem with this wheel.
RDH Recommendation: Take the 89A as a pusher wheel and choose one of the harder zombies as speed wheel. Then you are well prepared for the most surfaces.
SURE-GRIP was founded in 1936 by John L. Wintz, USA. They are producing a lot of different Roller Skates products.
