Ride Style

Downhill - Whether you picked up skating to break the sound barrier with supersonic speed, or you commandeered your brother's abandoned skateboard as something to do with friends, now you're here. Now you're ready to bomb hills, practice pre-drifting, get footage, and get the adrenalin rush of your life. To go fast and stay in control you want a big wheel with a lot of contact with the pavement. The softer wheels are grippier, but eventually the wheel will lose speed if it is too soft. Cores in downhill wheels can be vented, centered, or offset depending on what you are looking for. It all comes down to the quality of 'thane under your board and your ability to rail a corner.

Core Placement

Offset - Offset wheels have cores that are placed somewhere between centerset and sideset. Offset wheels give the rider the best of both worlds. Most downhill wheels and many freeride wheels are offset for a more forgiving slide initiation and hookup, while still providing ample grip and control in the slide.

Wheel Edge

Beveled Lip - Beveled lips are cut at an angle to provide less grip than a square lip, but more grip than a round lip. Beveled lip wheels allow you to initiate smooth drifts while retaining plenty of traction when you need it.

Surface Type

Smooth - Smooth wheels have a shiny coating on their surface that is commonly referred to as its skin or mold release. Smooth wheels are generally preferred for their grip and traction.

Durometer

78a - Soft and gooey, this is the most common durometer we see in the longboard/cruiser wheel world. These wheels have great grip for cornering and easily rolls over cracks, small rocks, and rough surfaces without tripping you up. When sliding, 78a wheels have a tendency to smear across the surface of the road, offer great control, slow you down rapidly, wear quickly, and leave thane lines. Ideal for cruising, carving, freeride, and downhill.

Urethane skate wheels generally range from 75a-101a, the numbers increase with the hardness of the wheel.
