A steamroller is the rough and scruffy pipe of the pipe family. Smoking from a steamroller pipe has often been compared to taking a huge hit out of a bong without the water. Steamrollers are notorious for providing hearty hits that pack a punch and go down a little bit harsh. If you are a novice smoker, a steamroller might not be the best fit for you.
The name steamroller comes from its resemblance to the pipes on the wheels of steamroller trains. Having a streamlined cylindrical design, steamrollers feature the carb on the end of the pipe, instead of the side like most traditional glass hand pipes. This design allows air to flow more freely through the pipe, offering fuller and stronger hits.
Steamroller pipes combine a classic design, wonderful portability, and a full, powerful hit unlike anything else. In this article, we are going to talk about four of the top steamrollers at WickiePipes: Marley Natural Steamroller, Jane West Steamroller by GRAV, and the Undurcuvur Steamroller.
Marley Natural Steamroller
The Marley Natural large steamroller is a great 2-piece smoking device for any level of smoker. The glass tip and wooden mouthpiece can easily separate making this steamroller extremely easy to clean.
Made from hand-blown clear cane borosilicate glass on the tip and American Black Walnut for the mouthpiece, this steamroller is the perfect balance of utility and design.
Measuring 6.75” in length and weighing 3oz, this piece comes with a curved wooden stand to display its beauty. If you want one, they are only $60.
High Tech Pipes has really outdone themselves with the creation of the S.T.O.R.M. Steamroller. S.T.O.R.M. is the world’s first induction steamroller with a push-button carb system. Simply push down a button to allow airflow for a large and powerful hit.
S.T.O.R.M. is made in the USA from medical grade billet aluminum and is anodized for maximum protection. This piece is durable weighing about 12oz and is built to provide many years of functionally cool smoke.
To activate the induction chamber, fill the bowl with herb, screw on the lid, light from cap opening, and press the carb button to clear the chamber.
Jane West Steamroller
Jane West is a glassblower represented by GRAV that is known for her bold take on a few classic pipes. Her steamroller adopts a cobalt blue design that stands out as a smoking device as well as a piece of art.
The Jane West steamroller has a perfectly placed finger rest that makes this piece feel so natural you will think it is an extension of your hand. Its oversized carb and lifted exterior bowl make this steamroller unique from the rest.
Weighing roughly 4oz with measurements of 1.5” H/ 4.5” L/ 1” W, the Jane West steamroller can be a part of your collection for just $50.00.
The UNDURCUVUR Steamroller pipe adopts the concept of a glass steamroller but provides a special little surprise for any clumsy, accident prone, or on-the-go smoker.
Made from borosilicate glass at the core, the Undurcuvur steamroller is wrapped in a shockproof silicone skin to prevent damage. The silicone skin makes this piece easy to carry, grip, and clean.
UNDURCUVUR has hand-picked a proprietary blend of polymers with the goal of eliminating gas permeability (which is how odor is transported through polymers like silicone). Silicone rubber has 450 times the gas permeability of the UNDURCUVUR rubber blend. In other words, their blend of rubber is way better! Grab your UNDURCUVUR steamroller today for $29.99.
