    What's the point of Oysi frames?

    I'm not bitching, genuinely curious. Is it about how they feel as apposed to what they allow you to do?

    I'm Interested in this too? I get the huge groove thing, and the wheel cups. But after that, what would be the difference between a flat 61mm frame as that is the maximum inner wheel size? I don't get having why having 72mm on the outside would be beneficial. It's just adding a lot of ride height, and I doubt it adds speed.

    If you look at the k2 Unnatural 2017 frame that offers 61mm max wheel and wheel cups. Ok i guess the gap between the middle wheels is not as big.

    Also I'm not slamming on the product - I love seeing options and innovation, but I just don't get the whole bigger wheels on the outside.

      Someone said you can’t really compare them to flat or anti. It’s just another thing entirely. Which isn’t technically true but i see the point being made. Personally i think a well designed 60mm - 65mm frame has been close to nailed which is certainly my preference especially if it’s rockerable. The bigger wheels will do something to increase speed and mitigate cracks.

        It's for HiLo skating.

        Example, i use a 72/60mm setup. 72 Cozmo with a small bullet shape and undercover Eugen Enins with the more round shape. So whenever i go into a turn the inner wheels have more contact to the ground, beeing rounder, and that gives a wizardry/hockey setup feeling for turns and twists. AND you can grind very well with them. Best of both worlds and a bit more affordable :P

          I just want someone to release a widely available 60 mm flat frame in at least two sizes, and at this point I want ground control to do it.

            I shared the oysi for a little bit and after skating bigs for so long I preferred them. I leaned more towards them because I had Go 72s with the narrow profile. With the oysi I had mixed profiles so that could've definitely played a part. Rolling on a longer frame felt off to me too. I finally grinded my symmetrics to fit the frame channel so I'll be giving them a fair shake finally.
            sig. . . what sig? you should know what skating looks like by now, right?

              grab as many Valo frames (or roces now) as you can get. Best frame for 60 flat if your' legs can handle the weight.

                2 sizes like med/large? K2 and Symetrics are both 60mm flat and have 2 sizes. I'm interested in a GC 60, but also a K2 65. The pics of the K2 65 "big block" prototype seem like they have a huge split compared to GC Megas. Not sure where K2 is finding the extra space around the UFS mount area. Maybe I'll try oysi again someday, but my first experiences were meh. They absolutely grind well, but I tried 65/56ish and it didn't feel great. Prob 72/60 next time.

                  Another thing I want to know is why the current perceived wisdom on frame technology is all about increasing wheel AND h-block size?

                    I'm trying to get a THEM setup with some Oysi frames, but for some reason I can't pull the trigger on Oysi. Idk if it's the look/length/height on that boot or what, but something is throwing me off.

                      I skate a THEM, size S with the Oysis.

                      Rolls like butter, but grinds like a classic grindwheel setup.

                        Im wanting something more like the mega frame just with a lower ride height. the k2 frame is hardly widely available, and the sizing seems odd with them to say the least. also don't they (k2) have a version that doesn't even have axle bolt protection on one side?

                        tbh I cant believe ground control let k2 beat them to a 60mm frame using what is basically the same groove as megas.

                          Long story short, the design gives the best possible combination of rolling and grinding performance possible with UFS compatibility. I could ramble on for an hour, but that's the gist of it

                          Compared to 61 flat, it may or may not add speed on a smooth surface.....but on rough pavement with rocks/sticks/cracks it makes a huge difference, especially if the 72s are a bit softer than most bladder's preference for grinding setups. Without getting too complex, a longer wheelbase or bigger outer wheel diameter will require the skate to pitch less when you roll up & over anything. And compared to ~60 anti setups it's a whole new world.

                          Agreed, hardware is looking soo good these days.....but I still think that a mid-60s max flat frame with an ideal groove requires changing UFS.

                          Those frames are tall AF, came soo close to talking K2 into changing the mount standard and making those perfect.

                          Because what works and what sells are two different things.....Powerslide is proving that on the daily :/

                            Would you be willing to modify your souls and relocate a mounting bolt to skate rockered 76s with a ride height and grinding characteristics comparable to Megas? What about for ~72 with a ride height a few mil lower than Megas?

                              simply call it EASY MODE. flat frame for EVERYONE WITHOUT ANY EXCEPTIONS.
