Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard wheels are the element of the skate that is in contact with the ground, so it is important to keep them in good condition and that they are adapted to your skating style and the terrain where they will be used.

To ensure you have fun, it is better to use them on wheels, but not just any wheels. In Fillow we help you to choose the best skateboard wheels, the most suitable for your skate and your way of skating.

 

How to choose skateboard wheels?

Skate wheels have changed a lot over time, both in sizes and materials, thanks to the continued development of this industry. 

Here’s a quick summary of what you should consider when choosing skateboard wheels. 


Skateboard Wheels Size

The sizes of the wheels are usually the diameter in millimeters, the most common are from 50 to 59mm. 

The smaller wheels have lower final speed, but higher acceleration, and vice versa. 

If you want to train technical maneuvers on smooth surfaces, you should prefer smaller wheels, around 52mm. 

If you prefer higher speed to move around or skate on ramps, the best sizes are 56-57mm. 

Remember that if you want to use very big wheels, you may need to use high trucks or risers, so they will not touch the deck in any case. 

 

Street and Park Skate Wheels

The best skate wheels for street and park are smaller: lighter and lower skate, with better acceleration for tricks, etc.

  • If you are going to skate on smooth floors, and you want to train technical tricks, your ideal wheel’s size is between 50 and 53 mm.

  • For more uneven floors, ramps or if you also use your skate to move around, slightly larger wheels are preferable, from 53 to 56 mm. 

Therefore, 52-53 mm would be the average diameter, that is why it is the preferred size for street skateboarding.


Ramps and Cruising Skate Wheels

For ramps, the ideal measures are between 56 and 60 mm, because in this case it is interesting to achieve maximum speed to reach heights. 

In cruising, larger wheels adapt better to any kind of surfaces, they offer greater speed and it is not so important that it’s harder to maneuver with them. 

In any case, remember that the trucks you use limit the size of the wheels you can use, because if you set up very big wheels on low trucks, without using risers, you could stop the wheels against the deck at the most inconvenient moment, with a painful outcome.


Skateboard wheels Hardness

There are several ways to classify the wheels according to the hardness of the urethane from with they are made. 


Wheels Classification according to hardness:

The most common is the A-scale, used by most skateboard brands and most well-known skaters. The larger the number, the harder the wheel (101 A is harder than 95 A, for example).

This scale becomes somewhat imprecise for hardness from 101 A, so some brands like Bones use different or additional scales, such as the B or D scale. To find the correspondence between one hardness scale and another, Bones recommends adding 20 points to the value of B to get the value that would be in A. For example, wheels 83 B would be like 103 A, and are much harder than 101 A.

 

How to choose the hardness of your wheels?

As always, it depends on what you want your skate for, and your preferences. Hard wheels reach higher speeds, have higher acceleration and lower grip, but are for use on smooth floors. Soft wheels adapt better to the irregularities of the terrain, have a greater grip, but are slower. They are also mores susceptible to abrasion and deformation (the dreaded ‘flatspots’ of which we will speak later). 

So if you are going to do technical street tricks on smooth floors, harder wheels are better for you, because they are better for tricks and grinds. If you want to move around on all kinds of floors, the slightly softer wheels will be more comfortable for you, and they will offer greater grip. 


Soft Wheels  (75-92 A)

The softest wheels are used almost exclusively for cruisers, because they adapt perfectly to any type of terrains, and if you like to just skate around, with them you will have less inconvenience with the pebbles and parallelepipeds. They are also a good option if you are going to record videos.


Medium Wheels (92-95 A)

They are a bit faster that the soft ones, with a very good grip, but it is not so difficult to do tricks on them from time to time or get a little more speed on your walks. 


Hard Wheels (96-99 A)

With a reasonable speed, a bit of grip, but also with good maneuverability for tricks, these are the most recommended hardness for beginners. They serve for both street and park skating. 


High hardness Wheels (99-101 A and 83-84 B)

They are preferred by the most experienced skaters. They are faster and have a greater acceleration capability, so they are perfect for more technical skateboarding. However, on uneven floors, they may be uncomfortable.

 

SHAPES AND TYPES OF SKATEBOARD WHEELS

Core vs Standard Wheels

Skate wheels can have the central hole part reinforced with a harder plastic than the rest of the wheel, to keep the bearing in place (as when spacers are used). Those wheels that have this are called ‘core wheels’, and the rest are simply standard or ‘non-core’. 

Core wheels save weight due to their core material and are especially good for very soft wheels, for hard wheels they are not so necessary.


Shapes Skate Wheels

Each wheel may have a different shape, with a variety of angles in the curvature of the profile and the width of the part that is in contact with the grounded. A smoother or even convex profile reduces weight to the wheel and prevents the curve of the profile from bothering you in your grinds and edges. As for the surface of contact with the ground, the larger it is, the better the grip and the lower the speed. And, on the contrary, the narrower it is, the more acceleration. 

You can find more information about the different shapes available in the section of each wheels’ brand. 


Skate wheel technology

 

Wheels are usually made of urethane but more and more compounds are being mixed to make them much more durable. The common goal of all brands is to achieve wheels without flat spots (wear on one side).


What are flat Spots?

When the wheel stops being round and not longer rotates as well as the first day, we can say that it has a flatspot. It occurs when the material wears out by abrasion.

This can happen, for example, when you put the wheels in a position perpendicular to the direction in which they are advancing, as usually made to brake.

The wheels of higher quality and hardness such as some from Bones and Spitfire, are almost impossible to deform with normal use.

Jart Skateboards History

Jart is a Spanish brand that was founded in 2002 in Irun (Basque Country). Iraola brothers (Igor, Ander and Iban) come from a family that has been dedicated to the wood industry for a long time, which, in along with their passion for skateboarding and other sports, encouraged them to create their own skate decks. Until then, the manufacture of skate decks was something that was done almost exclusively in the USA, there were no large producers in Europe. 

The three brothers made their first deck in the garage, back in the year 2000, and throughout these years the business has grown dramatically. Today they own the manufacturing and distribution company called HCL, which makes more than 20,000 decks per month and includes other brands in addition to Jart, such as Sk8Mafia, Habitat or Flip. 

Jart follows all the guidelines for a good environmental practice, it could not be otherwise, since they know well the materials, the manufacturing processes, and they are faithful to their ideals of taking care of our planet. The hard maple they use in their decks comes exclusively from controlled forests in the United States, and the correct waste management during the producing process is also very important for them. 

The iconic logo of the brand, two concentric ovals, represents the growth rings of the trees. 

Jart Skateboards Decks

Where are jart skateboards made? The Jart factory is in Irun. They press every deck one by one to ensure the highest quality, and not massively into a mold as other brands do, because that way could be uneven in terms of shape and concave. 

The extensive catalog of Jart Skates has been designed with a skater lifestyle in mind. Their boards are perfect for skaters of any level, from beginners to the most advanced. They can have a variety of concaves so that everyone can choose how much control they want to have on their skate. They also offer many different measures, from 7.25 for the smallest riders, to 9 for pool lovers. 

As for the designs, throughout all their years of history, they have launched many different series, always characterized by a touch of elegance and good taste. Browse among the different series to find the ones you like the most: Jart Logo, Jart Classic...

Jart Skateboards Wheels

As a great manufacturer, quality is ensured in everything they produce. Jart wheels have their own urethane formula, and the center hardened for speed and precision. They are available in sizes from 50 to 55 mm and with several different hardness options. The designs are similar to those used for their decks, always cool and original. 

Jart Skateboards bearings and skate accessories

Jart manufactures chromed bearings of different ABEC (Abec 3, Abec 5, Abec 7). Chrome is a metal that is very resistant to corrosion, thanks to which your bearings will be more durable. 

Currently, Jart is manufacturing all of its bearings sealed on one side against dirt. On the other side, they have a rubber protector that keeps everything in place, but at the same time it is very easy to remove to clean the bearing as often as we should. The retainer (the part that keeps the balls separated from each other) is made of nylon 66. All bearings are lubricated with high speed oil.

Jart Complete Skateboards

Jart complete skateboards have a great quality. They are made in Europe and offers a great performance for those who want to start skating with good material and for those that are already experts.

All the pieces (deck, wheels, bearings) are from Jart, except the trucks, that are usually from the great brand Iron. 

In addition to a wide variety of designs, Jart offers many options in its complete skates, not just the most basic as it happens with many other brands. If you already know what you like for your skating, in Jart you can do a more specific search and still find a complete skateboard perfect for you, because they offer some with high or low trucks, Abec 7 bearings, many wheel sizes, etc. 

Jart Skateboards Price

Another good thing about this brand is that, even with such a great quality, they manage to offer great prices: 

Jart Decks prices: 41.21£ - 53.78£

Jart Wheels prices: 25.56£ - 36.77£

Here you can see who for many people is the star of the team, Bulard in action: 

 

Jart Skateboards Decks Series / Collaborations Jart Skateboards

The deck series from Jart have boards of very varied measures. 

The most classic, Jart Skateboard Classic Deck, has the logo and the name of the brand, with a multi-colored background.

In many others you will find their name, since now that you know their history, you understand how proud you can be to wear it. They have written it in several styles, such as the Acid series with multi-colored gradient background, the Future series, 3D...

But of course they also have more daring designs, such as their collaboration with Playboy, or the series Pool Before Death, which reaches very large sizes and offers drawings for all tastes.
