HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT WHEEL FOR YOU
- Urethane: Specially formulated urethanes are specific to surfaces and uses. For instance, an indoor hockey formula should never be used outside.
- Durometer: The durometer or hardness of a wheel is measured from 72A (Ultra Soft) to 100+A (Very Hard). Softer wheels are better for grip and a smoother ride, while hard wheels last longer and are often faster.
- Size: The size of a wheel is measured in mm’s (Millimeters). Smaller wheels are slower and used predominately for aggressive street skating. Larger wheels are, mostly, faster and used for recreational and race skating.
