I like having a graphic these days, the boards are so nice and are art pieces when we are done, so I wanted to try some rails after not using them since the 80's.
I got these HSR's at my local shop. They are specially engineered to be flat against the obstacle you are skating and they really feel locked in on a slide.
Now when I was goofing around I tried boardsliding a crusty old curb from the 50's, you know the ones that are starting to fall apart. The rails slid like butter.
I can't believe this material, it will slide on anything. Plus they look cool and make great handles.
