Checkers are the wheels that got Liam Morgan cripplingly addicted to thane lines. Smooth slides for days, bright white lines, and a classic, predictable feel is what made the kid a star and gave way to a lot of gear with his name on it.
If you like chalky yet buttery wheels, Checkers are for you. And for quite a bit less, the Mini Checkers are a steal. They are the perfect size for double kicks or any other deck where you are concerned about wheel bite. Checkers have a centerset core so you can flip them around when they start to cone. If you haven't tried a set, you are missing out. MADE IN USA.Here is a review by The Longboard Critic of the Mini Checkers.Volante says:
"At 64mm or 68mm the Volante Checker was designed with the freerider in mind. With almost 10 years backing this wheel, the Checker features the best combination of urethane and shape possible for a 'skate everything' style. Now add a center-set core and rounded profile design and you've got a buttery smooth wheel with street influenced design. Throw a set on your pool board and you'll be riding anything and everything!"
