New Abec 11 Retro Erniez

We are stoked to announce our new wheel for the 2014 season! The all new Retro Erniez, poured from our new Amber thane, fill the gap between the Bertz and Amber Flashbacks. At 65mm, 42mm, and a contact patch of a mere 33mm, the new Retro Erniez are easy to initiate into all sorts of slides. Unlike the Berts and Flashbacks, the Retro Erniez feature a round outer lip and a chamfered inside lip to reduce the chance of unexpected hook ups. With the sweet track record of the Bertz and Amber Flashbacks, the Retro Erniez definitely have our attention. These are ideal for freeride.
