One of the newcomers to the aggressive skating wheel market is Street Artist Urethane. Started by Adam Johnson with help from Mike ‘Murda’ Johnson and Shane Coburn, the project has been in the works since August 2007. They started the company with this much lead time to get a good foundation. They put thought into the name, some know it as STAR wheels, and poured the wheels long before they would be available to ride. This lets the wheel cure properly and maintain strength. Rushing a wheel to market can lead to defects. So if you’re in need of some wheels for your rollerblades, Street Artist is a good option and one that will be around for a long time. They have two team inline wheels currently offered: a 56/90 wheel perfect for flat or anti-rocker – or the 58/88 wheel great for anti-rocker or freestyle setups. Street Artist Team Riders: Mike Johnson, Don Bambrick, Billy ONeill, Sean Kelso, Rachard Johnson, Brian Freeman, Demetrius Watson, Dan Ives, Jacob Juul, and Edwin Wieringh A wheel is only as good as the team riders they have using them and STAR is one the best teams out. With an all-star cast of seasoned pro and up and coming ams, the list of riders really speak for themselves.
