The bar of progression is being raised on a daily basis from all corners of the globe. It is a constant evolution of one's ability and creativity that determines who is seen and who is forgotten. For Reece Doezema being seen happens naturally. His riding is flashy, creative, colorful and by all means threatening to push the bar to an even higher level every time he steps on a scooter. With electric pink urethane and a gleaming turquoise core reminiscent of 1980's racers chase for the finish line in neon flashy style, the "Checkmate" Rapids are here to capture the game of progression.

River Rapid signature wheels are PRO SCOOTER WHEELS that River Wheels created for Reece Doezema, who rides for River Wheels scooters. River Rapids are 88A PU, which means that River Wheels intended them to be ridden on the street because they are harder and more durable than 86A wheels. River Reece Doezema sig 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 River Rapids are 24mm, every fork and deck we sell should be compatible with these wheels. River Rapids 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. River Rapid signature wheels come standard with pre-installed bearings.
My son absolutely loves the wheels. They ride smooth and loves the color and style. Will probably get another set soon
