Inline Track racing is all about the corners. Those precious meters on the exit of every corner is where races are won and lost, and the champions are crowned. As the name suggests Matter's new wheels have been designed to Propelthe skater out of the corner like nothing ever skated on before.
Using patented oblique technology the Matter engineers have designed a wheel that is optimized to turn left. Since track racing is only in one direction it should make total sense that the skater's wheels are optimized to work best in that direction. The two sides of the Matter Propel wheel are known as the Force side and the Flex side. While these wheels have been tuned to work best in one direction we have also seen recent developments that allow them to be used in BOTH directions depending on the skaters personal preference.
Matter has also enhanced this wheel's chemistry too, to be more resistant to abrasion and therefore last longer at critical moments in races.

Why Footprint instead of hardness?
Footprint is more important than wheel hardness alone. Footprint is the compression size. In other words the amount of wheel making contact to the surface. This changes with someone's weight, speed, temperature and becomes even more important when you are on the side of the wheel in the turns or doing the double push.
The smaller the footprint, the harder the wheel.
