OJ's Skateboard Wheels – UK Shop
OJ’s skate wheels are among the oldest in the industry. The company was founded in 1974 and the first wheels to break into the industry were the Superjuice skate wheels which were smaller in diameter with wider base, and in bright orange. These wheels provided skaters a smooth ride and absolute control when turning.
The company is also known in terms of sizing their skate wheels as reflected in their “Juice” range. Some skaters find them quite reminiscent of retro skate wheels; but based on today’s standards, OJs are a bit larger than today’s wheels, but still smaller than vintage types.
Another factor notable feature of OJ wheels is they are suitable for all sorts of pavement, thanks to their size and impressive grip. Many serious skaters appreciate these features especially those who tend to shred down standard urethane wheels.
OJs is part of the NHS Fun Factory, Inc. and the brand has great list of team riders including AJ Zavala, Alex Peterson, Alex Davis, Ben Raybourn, Bennette Harada, Chris Gregson, Don Nguyen, Fred Gall, Greyson Fletcher, Jason Adams, Jesse Lindloff, Jimmy Cao, Jon Dickson, Jordan Taylor, Justin Figueroa, Marius Syvanen, Mason Merlino, Nick Boserio, Nolan Johnson, Nora Vasconcellos, Oscar Navaroo, Peter Raffin, Ryan Townley, Sammy Baca, Tom Knox, Tyler Surrey and Zack Wallin, among many others.
