To help celebrate Skyway's 50th year of being in business (and under the same ownership!) they have made their most labor-intensive BMX wheel to date!
These Skyway 50th Anniversary Tuff Wheels feature hand-made and machined alloy flanges with a throwback look to the classic "Campy-style" hubs from the early 80's! These hubs feature precision sealed bearings for years of maintenance-free use that will roll on and on! These hubs are gold anodized, like ALL classic Graphites are, and then engraved with the "Skyway" and "50th" logos.
About Skyway GRAPHITE Tuff Wheels-
Skyway's Graphites are molded from a proprietary blend of long-strand CARBON FIBER and ZYTEL NYLON. This blend produces a wheel far stiffer than any composite wheel on the market. These wheels put the power to the ground yet take the abuse of hard landings without having to true your spokes after every ride. This strength and stiffness also allow the use of higher tire pressures than possible with previous composite wheels. These are NEW and made with todays better, and lighter graphite materials not to mention better technology only improving on the legendary Tuff II performance you've come to expect from Skyway. Identical spoke pattern as the vintage Tuff II's, but precision made!
50TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL BOX OPTION- Skyway has made a special collectible full-color box that features Skyway's legendary racer Andy Patterson on one side, and new-school rider "Crazy" Al Cayne on the flip side of the box! The box measures in at 24" wide, by 21" tall, and 9" wide. Use it to store your wheels, or unfold it for a wall poster! Due to the size of the box, shipping cost increases, so you now have the option if you want the box, or not!
