Ethic may be onto something with their new Calypso 12 STD wheels. Conventional scooter wheels use an 8mm axle. Ethic may just be revolutionizing the sport by introducing 12 STD to the world, which utilizes a 12mm axle, larger bearings, and wider/taller wheels. The Calypso wheels require a 12mm axle so if you do not have a 12 STD deck and 12 STD forks, these wheels are not for you. If you do rock a 12 STD deck and forks, the Calypso wheels are a great option for maximum speed, durability, and looks!
Ethic 125mm wheels are 88A PU, which means that Ethic intended them to be ridden on the street because they are harder and more durable than 86A wheels. Ethic Calypso wheels are 30mm wide at the core and should be used with 30mm wheels spacers. The PU width is 30mm. Most PRO SCOOTER FORKS and decks were designed to handle a 24mm wheel core. 30mm wheels are the new favorite of pro scooter riders due to their massive grip. While they are going to feel a little strange at first if you are used to riding 24mm wide wheels, you will soon learn to love the massive grip that they offer! But beware, since 30mm wheels are relatively new to market, make sure both your deck and forks can handle a 30mm wide wheel.Ethic 125mm wheels have a 125mm outer diameter, making them perfect for the intermediate to pro riders who are looking for maximum speed for big air park tricks. While 115mm and 125mm are only produced by a few scooter manufacturers, 120mm wheels are the norm now on any intermeidate to pro freestyle scooter. Ethic 12 STD wheels come standard with pre-installed bearings.
