The SNUGS wheels designed by Northwoods are a long list of problems, solved. This wheel is like none other and the difference is intentional. SNUGS dual bearing wheels are designed to take a beating. Side impacts (aka Primo) can break away wheel material allowing trucks to push the bearing out of socket and eventually ruining the wheel. Northwoods has designed these wheels to distribute Primo impacts throughout the wheel. No washers are needed as it already has a built in shield against truck friction. SNUGS will never suffer from bearing slippage because they are based upon the traditional skateboard wheel, sandwiching wheel material between two high quality bearings. What is not so traditional is the wheel material itself. It's something new, different and no accident. They will NOT crack, chip, warp, stain, deteriorate, cone or ever get flat spots. SNUGS wheels provide resistance free slides and their longevity is second to none.




During heavy shred or in the heat of competition, your SNUGS will provide a true rolling dependable solution so you can keep your mind on your line...

Micro Monkey LLC?

Anyway, primo's have never damaged my wheels, seems like another over thought gimmick to me.
If I were to buy a set, would I be refunded if the wheels cracked or got flat spots? I'd be pretty amazed to see a type of plastic that's hard as diamond.
And who wants resistance free powerslides anyway? The idea is to have a little bit of resistance so that they feel and look cool.
Another problem is the longevity of shielded bearings, they don't come close to shielded bearings, all of the ones I had broke, and so did many others which is the reason why Todd stopped using them. And from what it sounds like, the bearings don't come out? What if one were to break?


A lot of dumb stuff but they look alright I guess, interested to see how they perform.

They look pretty good. But the problems they claim to solve are problems i have never had with any of my wheels.

Except the backs on my 4-5 year old Ultimates are cracked a bit.. They still work perfectly though, and comparing a new wheel design with an outdated one would be stupid.

Either way, i am very interested to see how they perform and if people are interested i'd try to get around reviewing one of these sets.

How is that a test? More like an ad.

Nonetheless, these look ok, but the price is just too much.

Pretty steep price for the wheels sad

I'm looking for a new set but wouldn't dream of paying 55

I am going to ask J about the pricing but I amn't going to question him. I can def not afford myself. But the wheels are probably what J says they are

It is expensive to make wheels.. I don't think the price is that high compared to the work that is put in them.. The question is if this work is worth the money?

i think the Northwood guy deserves a break...

he is doing lots for the scene, and i presume he has took the 'legit' route.

his prices are fair so give him a break......if you disagree dont buy his product.

there are plenty of 'others' in the scene who rip people off for max profit, just they are shrouded in hype.

i think the Northwood guy is doing things right. appreciate the work and be thankful more companies are putting the work/time/effort in .

If they're dual bearing the nut will need gluing at best.
