BabyDubz - Pink/Chrome

BabyDubz NinjaStars - Blk/Chrome Rims! 

The Story Behind It All.

BabyDubz is all about taking ordinary skateboard wheels and developing them to have an extraordinary look. We are inspired by fashion and design trends. Our BabyDubz rims are made from durable high grade aluminum metal, and are molded to fit perfectly on any type of skateboard. The wheels are poured with high grade urethane, here in southern California, at a well-known skateboard wheel manufacturer.

How far along are we?

We have made 35 prototypes, and improved the BabyDubz wheels over the last four years. We now have 1,500 rims made with chrome, gold, and anodized colors. Currently there are 45 molds, and we need a total of 90 molds to begin the pouring of the urethane wheels around the rims. The factory is ready with assembly space and is waiting for our order. We also have two BabyDubz riders: Mike Berdis, a multiple skateboard contest winner around the east coast who is well known in Erie, Pennsylvania; and Alvaro Urzura, a skateboarding technical skill wizard who is well known on the west coast and lives in southern California.

Where do you guys come in?

The money that you pledge to the project will go directly toward funding the manufacturing of the first line of BabyDubz wheels. With your pre-order support, we can finish the tooling and manufacture our first line of BabyDubz wheels. This will enable us to market and place BabyDubz on shelves at a skateboard shop near you. We have already produced 1,500 rims; chrome, gold, and anodized. The BabyDubz rims are ready for the final stage of the pouring of the urethane; this will complete our first line of BabyDubz wheels.

Kickstarters! Thanks for checking out our project!

We would like to thank Laura Finlay for the song, (Making friends with shadows). For more info please check out http://beehiverecording.com/arist.aspx?id=1015

Risks and challenges

All of the challenges have been met with the exception of the minimum cost of $3,500 to professionally pour the urethane; and $1,500 for the remaining cost of the tooling. If the project is funded, our manufacturers will immediately complete the pouring of urethane. ***We have just been informed that if we meet our goal; there will be a 2 week hold on funds transfer. All orders must be subject to funds transfer before we can ship items.*** **Orders can be subject to postal delays beyond our control.**
