Roues

Longboard und Skateboardrollen werden aus Polyurethan hergestellt. Je nach Einsatzzweck und gewünschten Fahrverhalten kann man Durchmesser, Härte, Kernposition, Lippenform und Farbe auswählen.
Der Härtegrad einer Rolle wird mit einem Durometer Type A bestimmt und reicht von 73a bis 101a. Dabei gilt: Je kleiner der Wert vor dem "a", desto weicher die Rolle.
Die klassische Longboardrolle zum Cruisen und Carven ist zwischen 75a und 83a weich, hat

sit.


Wheel core position: Centerset, Offset, Sideset

The core is positioned at the side for offset and side set wheels. This results in a large flexible lip which dampens unevenness on the road and ensures adhesion.

Centerset wheels have been developed for downhill and freeride use. Because of the centered hub these wheels provide a smooth slide and can be flipped left-to-right to prevent uneven wear.
 
In general, two basic types of wheels can be distinguished: Grip wheels with a sharp and slide wheels with a rounded lip. Grip wheels are soft, have a wide contact patch and a sharp and flexible lip providing a lot of grip and dampen unevenness on the road.

Slide wheels have less contact to the ground, rounded edges and often a stoneground surface to facilitate the first slide. For your first slide trials we recommend a wheel with 70-72mm diameter and a hardness between 84a and 89a.  For controlled slides at higher speeds you should choose a wheel with a wider contact patch and a durometer between 76a and 83a.


The diameter of a wheel should match the deck. Not every wheel can be easily mounted on any deck. For example, large wheels with a diameter of more than 75mm need a lot of space when turning in and should not touch the board when the steering is full. Therefore the deck should have sufficiently large cutouts. In general smaller diameter wheels speed up faster compared to a larger wheel. Large wheels are somewhat slower in the acceleration and they develop a higher final speed and have to be pushed on comparatively less to maintain the desired speed.
