The Alchemy Forge hard wheels are an awesome part of the alchemy wheels line up providing a pretty nice roll speed for a hard wheel and an impeccable durability. I rode these on multiple occasions including going to the skatepark and beating on em to actually freeriding them and getting some decent slides in.
At the park these wheels provide excellent durability and at 54mm provided a pretty good size to be ridden on a bigger double kick like I was riding. I enjoyed doing flip tricks and just goofing around with everything I threw at these wheels. I didn't know how these would perform on a hill so I didn't really try them out until I was at a slide jam just goofing around and they surprisingly threw nice slides and even left a tiny bit of thane here and there but stayed almost full size given the scenarios I was putting them in.
I used these wheels in a longest slide contest at a slide jam and actually got fairly close to winning the contest and the wheels held up very well and not a single flat spot or oval to be found. They enjoy being in slide and even snapping out of slide as well. Its an obvious statement that they are an on top of the pavement slide because they are a hard wheel. I can compare them to almost like a slide A but a lot less slippery when you break traction but still have the control when you are sliding or even flipping your board around.
I rode these wheels at central mass on the first day riding ramps and hitting rails and they aren't like your average skateboard wheel because it doesn't feel quite like the standard bones or spitfire formulas. These wheels feel like they are more of a higher quality especially on a bigger DK type board that you can really do anything on and rip any hill or street spot you may come across. It is a universal wheel if you want to get into a little tech and still slay the streets.These wheels showed a great amount of durability and even a smooth slide for a hard wheel. I've gone through multiple sets of hard wheels on my skateboards and the Alchemy forge wheels are the first to last me as long as they have and still be close to new. I'd recommend these wheels to anyone that skates heavy park and flipping your board around to wanting to even tech slide and try a different kind of wheel.
