Harfang Absolute Official Release: 1 Wheel, 1 Complete Lineup
Based in Montreal Canada, Harfang is a small owner operated brand helping pros all over the world to perform their best by preparing their wheels for various tracks and weather conditions, everything from dry to heavy rain and freeriding to serious racing.
Until now you had to send in your own wheels or pick from the limited stock from other brands to get the extra control in the wet, dry or off-road. But after 3 years of research and development Harfang is now able to unveil one of the best wheels out there: the HARFANG ABSOLUTE 73mm.
This new wheel is no surprise for IDF racers like Niko Desmarais. He put them to the ultimate test this season and climbed himself to 3rd place in the rankings before an injury ended his season prematurely. In the women division, Cassandra Duschesne placed 5th with one missing world cup event. Find out more on our team here. Now the next step is to try them yourself!
The Harfang Absolute 73mm is an ultra fast and durable downhill wheel yet your perfect choice for freeriding or cruising around. Its FGM Core (Fiber Glass Matrix) provides a wide and rigid support to the optimized Race Formula Urethane (RFU), bringing the perfect combination for fast accelerations and top speeds. This wheel will surprise you by its grip while giving you total control over your board with a very smooth and predictable slide. No wonder they translate into the ultimate freeride wheels. Good to the core, this is the last wheel you’ll ever want to ride!

Stage 1 is the all around rain wheel and the first you should have in your quiver. Works great in straight and sideways (progressive edges) and provides lots of water removal.
Stage 4 is the fastest wheel for patchy/dry tracks, less water removal than other Stages but more than traditional pattern (3D grooves). It will keep its integrity and feel close to a regular (non-modified) wheel.
Stage 5 is the off-road pattern with aggressive grooves for fast hook-up. Grooves are slightly less deep than other Stages to avoid debris getting stuck in them.
Available in 7 different sizes the HARFANG ABSOLUTE FREERIDE will be bring your high speed freeriding skills to the next level with the same level of control offered by the RFU and FGM Core. Cut straight out from the Harfang Absolute 73mm, the Freeride are only available through the website and in limited quantities. Get some before they’re gone!
