New Spitfire X Skateistan wheel designed by Lance Mountain
The new Spitfire X Skateistan wheel designed by skateboarding legend Lance Mountain, has been released to support Skateistan…
…an international non-profit organization using skateboarding to engage, educate and empower at-risk youth in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Proceeds from the 53mm Formula Four Skateistan Benefit Editions are supporting Skateistan projects around the world. The wheels are available in Skateistan‘s online store now. For the release of the new collaboration, two videos will be unveiled. Spitfire rider Walker Ryan skated the streets of New York and sat down to share his thoughts and experiences on the work that Skateistan is doing, providing kids around the world with positive activities and access to education through skateboarding. Skateistan‘s very own Communications Officer from Kabul, Hamdullah, also shares some of Skateistan‘s activities through his camera lens. Oliver Percovich, Founder and Executive Director at Skateistan says: “Can you think of a cooler collab!? Spitfire and Lance Mountain teamed up to support Skateistan with an incredible limited edition wheel. Grab yourself a set from our store and support Skateistan students all around the world!”.

The wheel is available online in Skateistan‘s shop, with 100% of proceeds going towards Skateistan‘s sport and education programs for youth. The Spitfire X Skateistan wheel is also available at selected skate stores around the globe. Spitfire Formula Four 99 duro wheels give you more speed and control on all surfaces. These true performance urethane wheels have unmatched flatspot resistance, a smooth anti-stick slide and a high rebound compound.
Using the hook of Skateboarding, Skateistan focuses on engaging the world’s hardest-to-reach young people with its educational development aid programs. Once children latch onto skateboarding, much more is possible—new opportunities in cross-cultural interaction, education, and personal empowerment. Skateistan skate schools currently provide full time programming year-round for more than 1200 young people in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa.
