Pitch on Stinger Wheels

Thank You Atom Wheels!

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for your product.
I have several different sets of Atom Wheels because I am fortunate enough to get to skate on many different surfaces. Gotta have the right tool for the job.
Though all of my Atom Wheels work very well for their designated application, I am particularly happy with my Stingers. Our local rink is acrylic and there is nothing that I like more than going out and racing those 20 year old jam skaters. Sure, they are able to out sprint me to the first corner but because my Stingers hook up so well, I am around them and leading in turn two. Because the grip of the Stinger is so good, I am able to take long, full strides and make distance on them in every lap. They hate getting beat that bad by a 42 year old roller derby guy but hey, they'll get their turn someday.

Thanks Again!

G.No-Evil on Atom Juke

G.No-Evil from had this to say about the NEW Atom Juke Wheels.


"So I went to Edmonton to play in the Men's Invitational hosted by Oil City. And to be honest I was worried because they said the floor was concrete and slippery. So the night before everyone was putting on Radar shadows 80a. And I was like well I have my 93a/88a combo on let me see what its like first. So we got to the venue and I was like, damn it is slippery, so I put on my outdoor wheels (62mm kyptos) and they where the same. Then I remembered I had another 4 pack of 88a in my bag. SO I went out there on all 88a and with the 59mm height I was able to control the slide and was confident in my footwork to do what I needed to do. Well after the bout was over, our team won by 40pts! And I was glad that the Jukes helped me on the not so desirable surface. Atom Jukes kick ass!

Magnum P.I.M.P

Throughout the season our Front Runners and All-Stars will be posting Write-ups from bouts they have attended. Stay tuned for more updates throughout the year!


"I acted as the outside pack ref between the M80s and the Stunt Devils during the 01/09/10 match up. It was the season opener between the two teams that met in the Arch Rival Roller Girls 2009 Local Championship. The M80s fought hard but the Stunt Devils lead the majority of the game and continued to show their dominance of Arch Rival's local scene. The bout was sold out with over 1,000 in attendance. The crowd was on their feet several times during the bout. Great derby action."

"Hub Pop" Issue

For anyone that has had a ‘hub pop’ or has heard of a hub pop from Atom Wheels, please know that the Atom custom painted core ‘hub pop’ issue has been given our HIGHEST priority! At Atom Wheels, we are dedicated to bringing skaters the highest quality product on the market, which is why we are not afraid to bring this issue out into the open.

Due to the increased volume of wheels being produced, we have noticed a recent decrease in quality control from our manufacturer. Please rest assured; THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN RECTIFIED! The problem had been coming from the paint that is being applied to the cap, which was not allowing the bonding agent to adhere properly. This has been resolved by removing all paint away from the side of the cap, which the bonding agent adheres to. This will allow for superior bonding between the urethane and the cap. Effective immediately, we are revamping our tooling so that we can continue to have the highest quality product on the market. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support,


Oly Rollers Boot Camp

The Oly Rollers Boot camp was heart pumping, calorie burning, intense training, and just absolutely AMAZING! This camp included amazing skaters from all over the United States. Girls came into the camp ready to train hard and learn just what it takes to be a National Champion, and as expected, they got that and then some!

The Oly Rollers are comprised of phenomenal skaters from all types of skating backgrounds. The camp started off with Atom’s own Atomatrix teaching extensive speed and stride classes, and moved forward with great blocking and conditioning classes from Sassy, Tannibal, D-Bomb, Heffer and Blonde An’ Bitchin.

In my eyes, the camp was an overall success with the campers learning valuable lessons they are sure to take back to their respective leagues. If you weren’t there, you MISSED a ton! And for those who were there, well... they learned exactly why the Oly Rollers are the 2009 WFTDA National Champions!
