Labeda Gripper X-Soft Blue
The Labeda Gripper Hockey Ltd Wheels have the same great features as the orignal Gripper, but are offered in a sweet blue colorway. These wheels have stood the test of time due to their quality construction process and design. The Gripper wheels were the first hockey wheels to bring the Flex Technology to inline hockey with it's smaller core design that allows the urethane to flex, therefor maximizing grip and speed. Best of all Labeda is a family owned business and makes all of their wheels, including these Grippers, right here in the USA.
- Ideal Playing Surface: Sport Court, Wood, Smooth Concrete
- Hardness Guidelines:
- 74A (X-Soft) = 165 lbs and below
- Hardness selection should be based on player weight and skating ability. A player can choose a wheel designated for a heavier skater if they have advanced skating skills to compress the wheel enough to grip. This will allow the player to maximize their speed.
- Fit Guidelines: Standard hub wheel designed for the standard 608 bearing size
