Putting it to the test: 841's new forged 5-Star wheels
841 Wheels developed an extremely strong and light weight wheel by using a new manufacturing process. 841's 5-stars wheels are pressed under 5 tons of pressure out of a block of solid aluminum which makes it 2.5 times stronger than machining. Zig Short, Cory Vanlew, Elliott Arnold and Zack Martin put them to the test.

Coming this summer: Forged Wheels
841 is in the process of making forged scooter wheels. The wheels are being pressed from one single block of aluminum under 5 tons of pressure. Forging is a process that aligns the grain size and directionality of the aluminum into its most favored configuration making it up to 2.5 times stronger than machined or extruded aluminum. This allows us to make not even strong but lighter wheels than anything you've seen before. Stay tuned.
NEW: 841 Dragon Wheels
The first impression you will get from the new 841 Dragon wheel is that it is fast. Very fast. Usually with faster wheels you give up grippiness and durability. Not so with the Dragons: They got an amazing amount of grip for being such a fast wheel and even outlast most wheels in durability and strength. The Dragon wheel comes in 100 and 110 mm and is equipped with high precision ABEC 9 TITEN bearings and spacers.

841 Wheel Test by Scoot4Life Magazine - "a goal, that seemed almost impossible was achieved"
The Perfect wheels for freestyle scootering?
I got these wheels about 2 weeks from Marco Giehm, the European 841 manager, while he was on Tour in Czech Rep. with Zig and Cory. I hereby bring you my honest opinion on them. I will compare them to my long-time experience with Eagle Sport Wheels.
There are a couple of varieties of 841 wheels. All of them have the same properties,may only vary in size. For our testing, I got the “SC8T4L1FE” version which is a black on black wheel with white print on the inside of the core in 110mm size. All wheels come fitted with TITEN bearings and spacers. Overall, the design looks great, especially while riding, since the letters create an illusion of a white circle inside the wheel itself.
The wheels have a thinner profile than many others, which seemed a little funny in the beginning. It reminded me of those old plastic Razor Ultra Pro wheels.
First thing you realize, when you put those wheels on is the speed. Unlike Eagle Sport wheels, on which I have been riding for many years, they don´t feel so soft. However, once you land, they absorb the impact just fine. It feels like the vibrations are absorbed in the wheels themselves and don´t really travel much to the rest of the scooter. Since I am both street and park rider, and I ride both everyday, I must say that a goal, that seemed almost impossible was achieved. They are great for regular street riding, while maintaining grip on smooth surfaces. They slide less than Eagle Sport wheels, Eagles are mainly park wheels(!).The only bad thing are the bearings. I am gonna be honest, they break incredibly fast. Definately something to work on by 841.
They hold up really well. After 2 weeks of riding both street and park, they didn´t have a single hole. After time, they lose the top, which is really sharp and thin, and become really comfortable. It’s unbelievable how well they hold their roundness (unless you do sliders like crazy)you wont get any, and if then minor flat spots.
Overall great wheels. Suitable for any level of riding. They last long and come preinstalled with Titen Abec 7 bearings. I think we found THE PERFECT WHEEL!
[Remarks by 841: the bearings probably didn't break, they just got dirty because of the grease lubrication which doesn't keep dirt out.
Titen switched the lubrication to grease on all new bearings (and Tribal wheels) which prevents dust from coming in and they now last forever]
841 Tribal Wheels
As many long time riders know you can instantly tell if a wheel is fast the moment you put it on.
The first impression you will get from the 841Tribal wheel is that it is fast. Very fast. Usually with faster wheels, you give up grippiness and durability. Not so with the Tribals: They got an amazing amount of grip for being such a fast wheel and even outlast most wheels in durability and strength. The Tribal wheel comes in 100 and 110 mm and is equipped with high precision ABEC 7 TITEN bearings and spacers.
Light weight yet big enough to carry your scooter and all your books and binders the 841 scooter backpack is the perfect backpack for school and riding. You can store your scooter in seconds in the scooter compartment and carry it on the bus, in a store or the classroom. You can even take it on most airlines by simply taking off the handlebar and storing it in the designated pocket.
The 841 backpack features a large main compartment, front pocket, media port, mesh side pockets, padded back, articulated and pre-shaped shoulder straps and high end Nylon and rip-stop materials.

There are a lot of Extreme Sports out there, many genres of wheels but this time around we are covering the upcoming lifestlye of the "scoot." The definition of scoot is to move swiftly or to dart along a course. With 841 wheels you will do just that, as well as conquer heights and reach limits that only a chosen few have been able to accomplish. We welcome you to come live by the code, 841, which stands for "Scoot 4 L1fe" and become part of this "swift" and fast spreading lifestyle. Each number of this code has many levels of understanding so take pride in the code my fellow scootsmen. The "8" once turned on its side to become the 2 O's in "Scoot" resemble the infinity symbol there for there is no limit to where we can go. The "4" represents the sum of the combination of ideas composed into the kick scooter which are 3 (Rollerblading, Skateboarding, and BMX) plus 1 (YOU the rider) [3+1=4... duh!]. Finally the "1", meaning you only have one life to live, so go out, have fun, and shred till your heart is content. Once again, we welcome you.

Out now: 841 Skully Wheels
841 Skully wheels are pressed from a solid block of aluminum. The forging process aligns the grain size and direction of the aluminum into its most perfect configuration making it up to 2.5 times stronger than machined or extruded aluminum. This also allowed us to make the wheels significantly lighter than traditional full core wheels. The wheels come with spacers and Titan ABEC 9 bearings
