I ordered a Lush Legend X-flex elite complete after receiving an email notification that they were back in stock (the email notification worked - yay! - some companies don't actually follow up!) and it arrived really quickly. The free bearing lube was a great addition and thank you also for the free DVD! Overall the Vandem site really helped me make my choice of which longboard to buy as a beginner, the help articles are invaluable. This shop is clearly run by people who really know their stuff and care about helping you buy what you need to have the best time possible, rather than just making a quick buck. Thank you!

Cult Wheels Emperor 71mm White

A premium freeride wheel from Cult Wheels, "The Emperor" sits halfway between their Creator freeride wheel and the Road Warrior race wheel. Poured from Cult's all new "Dopathane" in a mid-width freeride shape on a wide, stiff core, it's conceived by Jorge Pernes and with input from the rest of the Cult Team. Tested for months on hills all over Europe, you know this is going to be good...

The width gives a little more grip and braking power than the Creator, but not as much as the Rapture. That wide orange core supports the urethane, keeping things rolling fast, adding an element of control, and dramatically increasing the lifespan of the wheel. It features radiused edges to keep things smooth once broken in - it's worth noting that this wheel is not stoneground so its pretty grippy until you've done some slides on it.

In short, if you like going fast and sideways on wheels that feel amazing and last a long time, this is a seriously good option!

Fantastic wheels

I haven't tried a slide yet but I have a good feeling from carving that they'll be easy to kick out. They're grippy when you need it most and they're drop dead gorgeous! These wheels are also just on the right borderline that they iron the pavement out just enough to make for a smooth ride, I love them! The customer service was incredibly good too, super glad I went with Vandem!

The wheels grip, weight and slideability are astounding. My only complaint is the core fills with dirt easily and the graphics on the side have all but gone. Minor things but 4 stars. Performance wise 5 if you clean em regularily

Damn these things are durable

I tried to core the Emperors yesterday. It took me 4 hours on my most wheeleating spot and I only wore about ~3mm. Please stop making such long lasting wheels. I got really frustrated :D :D ;D LONG LIVE THE EMPEROR

Just what the Cult needed in the line up

I actually got out on the Emperor over the weekend and I really enjoyed them. Fresh they slid really well. Nice and predictably, slowed me down just the right amount. I would now consider using a fresh set for very narrow and technical tracks. Once broken in they get even better nice and slidey, but didn't loose the defined hookup. Whenever I needed to stop sliding and shoot an apex I never had any trouble hooking them back up and gripping a corner. For hands down freeriding they're actually super dope, don’t wreck your legs cause you're trying to slide race wheels, but you don’t have to worry about not being able to hook back up. I took em down a super fast run on perfect black tar and drifted them back and forth all the way down. They gripped super nice on the black tar but still had a very consistent and predictable slide. I feel like the Emperor really fills the void that was in the Cult lineup between super slidey free ride wheels, and squarelips. Good job Cult.
