Chema Cardenas has spent the last decade riding for PROTO and this Mayan inspired wheel graphic tells his story: The Eagle Head representing his home country of Mexico; The Bear representing California, the home of PROTO; The Airplane he flies to travel between them; The Scooter he rides when he gets there; The Camera that documents his travels.Reminiscent of his first Signature Wheel from 2012 but with our new Plasma Urethane Formula for ultimate grip creating these cloudy clear gems! This entire "Relic" series theme was designed and directed by Chema. It takes more than just scooter tricks to be a real Professional.?
Proto Relic Plasmas are PRO SCOOTER WHEELS that Proto created for Chema Cardenas, who rides for Proto scooters. Proto pro scooter wheels are 86A PU, which means that Proto intended them to be ridden at the park because they are softer and provide more grip than 88A wheels. Chema Cardenas signature wheels are 24mm wide at the core and should be used with 24mm wheels spacers. The PU width is 24mm. Most PRO SCOOTER FORKS and decks were designed to handle a 24mm wheel core. Since both the core and PU of the Proto pro scooter wheels are 24mm, every fork and deck we sell should be compatible with these wheels. Proto pro scooter wheels have a 110mm outer diameter, making them perfect for the advanced beginner to intermediate riders. 110mm wheels have long been the standard diameter for most intermediate pro scooters. However, as scooter wheels become wider and taller due to pro riders need for big trick speed, 110mm wheels are becoming the norm for beginner to intermediate scooter riders. Proto Relic Plasmas come standard with pre-installed bearings.
