Skateboards

0

Skateboard are usually selected according to the dimensions of the board, its shape, the type of trucks, and the wheel characteristics.

Board dimensions

  • The dimensions of the board are usually given in inches.
  • The decisive parameter is width, not length, as it has a greater effect on the handling of the skateboard.
  • Wider boards are suitable for both beginners and larger riders, or for riding on ramps.
  • Narrower boards are designed for smaller, lighter riders; they are suitable for street skating and skateparks.

Board material

  • Boards are usually composed of 5-9 layers.
  • The best quality material is Canadian maple, but Chinese maple, beech or oak offer cheaper - yet good quality - alternatives.
  • The cheapest materials are PVC and other plastics; these boards are more durable, but unsuitable for tricks.

Trucks

  • Metal pieces screwed to the bottom of the board, on which wheels with bearings are attached.
  • Selection depends on the width of the board, which should equal the width of the trucks.

Trucks are divided into three basic sizes:

  • Low - offer high stability; suitable for smaller wheels (typically 50-53 mm).
  • Medium - universal and suitable for most styles; most commonly used with 54-59 mm wheels.
  • High - ideal for carving and cruising; used with 56 mm wheels and larger.

Wheels

Diameter:

  • 50-53 mm - suitable for tricks due to their higher stability; ideal for street skating or skateparks.
  • 54-59 mm - universal wheels, suitable for beginners and advanced; ideal for skating pools, vert ramps, mini ramps and skateparks.
  • 60 mm and more - designed for longboards, these are the fastest type of wheel and can withstand rough terrain.

Hardness:

  • 78a - 87a - the softest type of wheel; intended for longboards, but unsuitable for smooth surfaces or pool riding.
  • 88a - 95a - fast, suitable for street skating and rougher surfaces.
  • 96a - 99a - faster, versatile, suitable for flat surfaces.
  • 101 and higher - the hardest and fastest, they are used for professional racing.

Bearings

  • The quality of the bearings is indicated by the 1-9 ABEC scale, where 9 represents the highest quality.
  • The better the bearings, the faster and smoother the wheels.
  • We recommend that you select bearings marked at least 5 on the ABEC scale
