    I would use 80A for concrete nothing softer... And DO NOT use them on sport court they will be useless...

    some 78A's are made for concrete so they have the grip of a softer wheel while maintaining the speed of an 80A durometer. It all depends on the type of concrete and the skating style of the user. If he's skating on crappy streets, then definitely needs to find an 80A with his size (labeda grippers). If the concrete he is skating on is more like a smooth sidewalk, a tennis court, or a newly paved street, then a 78A (like the Hyper razors) would be fine. For him, I would probably lean toward the grippers because of his size, but it would depend again on the surface and how he skates.

    I don't have a rocker/hi-lo chasis on my skates, just a standard TUUK chasis. I'm thinking of putting softer wheels on the outside (78a) and harder wheels (84a) in the middle. I rarely play on sport court. It's usually a smooth concrete surface or a tennis court with the occassional rough concrete (but rarely) coming into play. I don't know. Just a thought I've been mulling over in my head for whenever I go to replace my old Hypers.
