There are many features to consider when choosing the wheels we want for our skates. First, we need to know the type of skater we are and what we want to achieve with our wheels. Some skaters want more speed and other want more grip. Each wheel has specific characteristics that make the practice unique. 

Many people do not know which wheels to choose for their roller skates. Here, tips and recommendations are given to help you choose the best suitable wheel for your needs.

There are different wheel diameters, these range from 56 mm (for kids) to 110 mm (which are very specific) When we buy wheels the size and hardness is normally  displayed on the wheel, featuring the size and the hardness. Example 72 mm(diameter/size) 80 a (grip/adherence)

The lower the hardness, the greater the grip. The only downsize is that these wheels have less durability. These wheels perform very well for skaters that love changing the pace or braking very hard. 

  • + Grip (Adherence) 
  • – Durability
  • – Speed

On the other hand,  wheels with more than 80 a will have more resistance and durability. These wheels are perfect to use on the road, bike lanes, or any other flat hard surface. 

  • Durability
  • + Speed
  • – Adherence

TIP: As a common rule, inline skates do have a reference pointing out the perfect diameter they can fit. If the logo in your wheels gets erased due to the use, do not worry and check your roller blades prints.

As the hardness of the wheels, the diameter also influences your skating. The bigger diameter the more speed and distance you can cover. Wheels with big diameters are usually used for speed skates or to travel long distances. 

  • Speed
  • + Traveled distance

On the other hand, wheels with small diameter are used to have more stability. These wheels are more secure and suit better kids and beginners.  .

  •  – Speed
  • + Maneuver
