Our view:
We're waiting to test a set first, before making comments, we do know the urethane well in it's grippier shapes though (Advantage & Release)
What we can say based on that experience, is that RAD wheels aren't for sliding slowly, steep hills & speed is where they really shine.
This side-set double radiused shape will help bring down that speed requirement though.

From Rider Approved Designs:
With a sideset core and 30mm contact patch, breaking traction has never been so buttery. The Glide comes with a stone ground finish, ready to slide right out of the box. At the heart of it all is the Crown Core. With three points and two valleys to separate the wheels into distinct sections, chatter and vibrations are eliminated. The Crown Core doesn't deform under weight, maximizing your potential roll speed. From the flat ground to the steepest hill, the Glide will ensure a great ride.
