kryptonics History :

You have probably heard of the skateboard company name kryptonics. These guys have been in the business for the last 50 years. The skateboard wheels were first made out of wood, clay and iron. kryptonics was the first to introduce the polyurethane skateboard wheels, which in result changed the skating scenario as a whole.  kryptonics is one of the oldest skateboarding companies in the world. They started their operation in 1965. They first started producing plastic wheels and research in urethane and different wheel technologies. When they first introduced urethane quad wheel in the market, they changed the quad skating forever.

After 50 years of providing top quality wheels and pre-assembled skateboards to general public. Kryptonics has changed the whole skateboarding market by providing high quality affordable boards. They are under attack by skating community because of cheaper skateboard that are available in the local retail store. Skating community thinks that the quality of the skateboards is not same as before when they compared old kryptonics skateboards with new ones.  Some skater thinks that they are now owned by Walmart and they are producing low quality cheap products but the reality is not that. You won’t find any of their signature series wheels at any retailer but still you can order them from their website. They still produce some high quality wheels and products but for sure they are not going to give all of their best parts with 50$ Walmart skateboards.

Kryptonics Skateboard Review Summary :

Kryptonics skateboards are affordable and easy to use for beginners. The company started by producing some high level skateboard wheels and then after few years started with complete skateboard. The wheels they produced are of very high quality but the skateboard are not the same and is lacking a bit of quality in term of artwork, grip tape and wood material. Also some of the customer who bought it said that some of these boards need adjustment by loosen the truck so that you can easily perform tricks while riding smoothly. These skateboards are for kids and beginners.
