For the OK CJ wheel Go Project have created a brand new 62mm wheel mould exclusive to Go Project. A 62mm wheel with an elliptical profile is not currently being produced anywhere else; the perfect way to introduce CJ to their catalogue.
While Sydney's CJ Wellsmore has been enjoying Go urethane (for both freestyle and aggressive) for the last couple of years; they can now call it official. CJ skates a balanced mix of street, skatepark and big-ramp so wanted a wheel size which was easily adaptable over all disciplines. CJ felt the 62's carried their speed well enough without compromising too much on acceleration. We created the urethane a little harder than our previous wheels so they are faster. The small core still allows for enough give in the urethane to create a good 'footprint' (for grip) and shock absorption.
They spent the best part of a year testing new materials for the hub. We managed to fully extract the colour pigmentation out of the core this time leaving us with a stronger hub material. We also changed the way the hub is bonded to the urethane 'tyre' so the wheel is now more resistant to de-coring. That said, the wheels have a lifetime warranty against de-coring and core fracturing incase you find an anomaly!
With a recent trend towards larger elliptical shaped wheels, the industry has been left with a graveyard of smaller and flatter wheel moulds. We are proud to present to you something entirely new.
Here at Go Project we like to think we are taking product endorsement in the inline industry in a new direction.
Instead of having a 'team' of skaters, we enrole 'guest skaters' who partake in product endorsement PER PRODUCT. Each time we manufacture a run of products with a skater's name associated to it we pay them UPFRONT for their endorsement of that product run.
This pays the skaters their dues and allows us the freedom to work with new skaters on a regular basis.
All profits from the first production run of bearings go to the skaters.
