What is the difference between different sizes of skateboard wheels?

1. Different speed: Generally speaking, the larger the wheel, the faster the speed, but the weight will naturally increase. Smaller wheels are slower, which is the most apparent difference.

2, different grip: the wheel also has a width value. The wider the grip, the better the cushioning will be better. More stable, the skateboard is not easy to roll over. For newcomers, it is a good choice. But with narrow wheels, because the contact surface is small, the action will be very flexible.

• 87A-Very rough ground (sharp descents on hillsides, etc.)

• 95A-Rough ground (blocks)

• 99A-Smooth ground (various markets, skateparks, U pools, swimming pools)

•101A-not for rough or very smooth ground (poor grip because it is too hard) Size 52-55 mm-suitable for most users. Street markets, skate parks. Small skaters.

• 56-60 mm – Suitable for most users. Street markets, skate parks. Adult skaters.

• 60+mm – Special skates. Extended board surface, rapid downhill, down mud surface.

Beginners are better off choosing wheels with lower hardness because they can not ride the skateboard well to avoid pebbles, glass, debris, etc., on the road. If the hardness is too high, this debris will get stuck in their wheels. And experienced skaters usually choose harder wheels.
