The Sucrose Initiative was developed to bring together rider based design, performance across a wide range of conditions, and an effort to start reducing our reliance on petroleum based materials.
Arbor’s new Sucrose Formula significantly improves performance and creates one of the longest-lasting wheels on the market. The natural component also reduces, in a small but important way, the petroleum footprint of our wheels. This lessens the environmental impact of urethane left on the roads when skating, especially during slides.
Arbor’s new Groovetube core has a wider, “tube” profile that allows the wheel to hold its shape, deliver improved contact with the road, and perform at speed through slides, in corners, and even during landings.
