The History of UC Wheels
UNDERCOVER Wheels was born out of another groundbreaking aggressive and urban-focused inline skating company - KIZER Frames. Just as KIZER was/is focused on innovative and capable frames, the same sort of focus was needed to drive inline skating wheel technologies and performance forward.
UNDERCOVER Wheels was founded in 2004 to produce the highest quality wheels possible for aggressive and different types of urban skating. Inline skating has no limits or rules; UNDERCOVER is dedicated to bringing you the wheels you need to discover what you’re truly capable of on inline skates.
It’s not always easy to produce the best inline skating wheels on the market. We’re constantly looking to improve our products and bring skaters what they need to express themselves on inline skates. We’re proud to have brought new, innovative wheel technologies to the market.
