the autobahn wheels philosophy

When Autobahn was founded in 2001, most wheel companies didn't even mention what hardness their wheels were. It was a sea of skulls and fire. In our view, skateboarding was simple physics. Weight distribution. Timing. Focus. We wanted to bring technology back into the wheel conversation. Nearly 15 years later, it seems skateboarders wanted the same.

Our wheels are designed purely with their end function in mind. Autobahn continues to develop new formulas and shapes to improve upon years of quality levels being raised. Specific, high-performance urethane formulas poured into functional shapes designed to outperform the best of the best. We have not and will never waver from our goal of creating the most durable and functional skateboard wheels you can buy.

The S/L SlideLine formula toes the line between a soft wheel and a hard wheel. While these come as soft as 80A, it is still possible to slide them. Bounce over everything in your path and when you get going too fast, throw ‘em sideways into a nice long slide, leaving a trail of urethane behind you. Available in functional, all-terrain shapes.
