We have already discussed in previous reviews that the ABEC rating is almost completely meaningless with regards skateboarding, but that hasn’t stopped a majority of bearing manufacturers still proudly plastering an ABEC rating on their products. Enjoi (a part of Dwindle Distribution) have dubbed these bearings as ABEC 7(teenish) as a nod to jailbait teens… So while i have a hatred for companies coming out with SUPER ABEC 9 360 NO-SCOPE SMOOTH PRO QUALITY EXTREME BEARINGS i can tolerate Enjoi’s product branding as i feel it’s more there as a set up for the joke more than anymore else. *insert “all the best things in life are illegal” joke here*...
While the Formula Four wheels from Spitfire have been out some considerable time now they are still the most recently developed wheels from Deluxe Distribution. In recent months we have seen plenty special editions and pro models released to continue the sales momentum, everything from coloured versions to pro models for both Thrashers 2013 Skaters of the Year (Ishod Wair), as well as the boss, Andrew Reynolds - which bears a Spitfire flaming skull in a beanie hat. Very recently they have also released a Lance Mountain model.
An all new formula first released back in 2013, the new formula is claimed to provide the hardest wearing wheels Spitfire have ever made - and as with so many wheels, claim to be flat spot resistant. Sadly these days almost all wheels are sold with claims of being flat spot resistant, so anybody with any experience of buying wheels will know that such claims should always be taken with a pinch of salt.
