  • Dusters California brings back

Press release:

Dusters California is proud to announce it is bringing back Kryptonics Star*Trac Wheels. Soon to be unveiled, you will once again have the Force of advanced technology at your command. New wheels that will take you far beyond the performance capabilities of your present equipment, into the outer limits of urethane technology.

Following in the footsteps of Jim Ford, a young Kryptonics employee who snuck into the factory after hours in 1976 to create the first Star*Trac wheels, and brilliant urethane chemist Chuck Demarest, we have reformulated the softer compounds to be tougher and faster. Soon you will see those new compounds and other major advancements come together in a sophisticated selection of skateboard wheels.

Three durometers of wheels will be released in the original sizes and shapes, plus one new size. The iconic Kryptonics Star*Trac 70mm red wheel was faster than any other wheel and able to roll over small boulders. The original will be developed and enhanced by adding a 75mm size to the new Kryptonics Star*Trac wheel collection. Perfect for your favorite downhill run, boardwalk cruise or your daily commute. Roll fast, roll long!

Red 78A– Fast and smooth. Great acceleration with predictable traction. Excels on rough surfaces. Glides like butter on every other surface. This is the wheel that changed everything. If you’re old enough you’ll remember the feeling, and if you’re not, you can experience it now.

Blue 82A– A touch softer,  but more forgiving than the 1970s (86A) version. Slap ‘em on your favorite reissue deck and take it to the streets or parks. Plenty of speed and flow, especially on smoother surfaces.

Green 86A– Not quite as hard as the original green (91A) introduced by Kryptonics in 1976, the new "green" offers a smooth quite ride on both rough and smooth surfaces. Perfect for your neighborhood ditch and streets. All are available in 60mm, 65mm, 70mm and a new 75mm.
