Momentum Rebates 54mm

There are certain things in life that we take for granted. Things that, if taken away from us, would gently sap the joy from our souls, the very part of you that you don’t always notice, but subconsciously makes you want to get up in the morning and fucking get some. I’m talking about the stuff we label as simple things, because they’re simply too overwhelming for us to understand. Like weights being lifted from your chest after just one sip of coffee, the chance of seeing a cat in the street, a good drum beat, the sound of a football commentator losing his shit when his country score and what I got up for this morning – the feeling of skating downhill with brand new wheels.

The wheels that helped get that inner smile beaming like a Cheshire cat on the smoothest, grooviest acid trip were made by Momentum. A company renowned for making smooth, cool wheels that don’t rile the environment. In today’s ever-greyer landscape making environmentally friendly skate products can only be encouraged by someone who wants to see cats roam the streets every day and my coffee to taste bloody delicious.

These wheels are advertised as not only kind to the environment but gentle on your wallet which – if for some reason does put you off – shouldn’t cause any doubt about the quality. These are the wheels that smoothie drinking, smoothie skating Rick McCrank has on his board and are you to question that dude’s taste in wheels? Momentum Rebates are ultimately a solid piece of recycled urethane that won’t hurt your bank balance, so whack on some green clothes and get ready for that smooth ride that makes everything you see in the street instantly life-assuring.
