Labeda Wheels – Gripper 78a 80mm

Fast and flexible, the Labeda Gripper 78a wheels will keep you rolling. The Grippers were one of the first wheels to bring flex to the hockey field. Though they were originally designed for hockey, they’ve since become incredibly popular with recreational skaters. Thanks to the smaller nylon core, the urethane formula is allowed to flex into turns and stops, maximising the footprint and providing grip. Combined with the super soft 78a Durometer, these wheels are excellent for rough outdoor surfaces.

About Labeda

Founded by Robert Labeda more than four decades ago, Labeda were one of the first companies to introduce urethane wheels to America. Joining forces with tire manufacturer BF Goodrich, they created the first urethane blended core in order to create a chemical bond with the outer urethane and prevent delamination. These days, Labeda make a range of gear for derby and hockey skaters, but they’re also popular with inline riders of all styles.
