Oak Wheels started has a hobby and has a concept in 2007. The main idea was work the design and the materials to create a more realistic fingerboard wheel. The job wasn’t easy for several reasons and after 2 years of prototypes, concept maturation and a lots of requests to make them real, Oak Wheels V1’s were launched back in 2009. V1’s were a revolution when they came out into the International Fingerboard Scene, the urethane made this wheels the most realistic wheels in the world and after some months the V’2 were launched. The biggest difference from V1’s to V2’s was the urethane hardness, V2’s were harder so they had less grip but all the Urethane Feeling was still alive. Actually the V2’s fixed the actual Oak Wheels Urethane hardness, they can be considerer as an important step in Oak Wheels history for the affirmation has one of the best, alternative and with a biggest range of color wheels in the International Fingerboard Scene.
