The choice of wheels for inline skating will directly influence your experience depending on your type of skating. This choice is based mainly on 3 criteria: hardness, size and type of slip.
The smaller the diameter of a wheel, the easier the pads will be to maneuver and the easier the turns will be. Conversely, the larger the wheels, the more difficult the skates will be to turn, but on the other hand, you will be able to reach a much higher speed and maintain it. The diameter of the wheels in mm generally varies between 50mm and more than 100mm.
Hardness also has a say. A hard wheel will allow more speed and be more durable, but will be more slippery in the corners. A softer wheel will give more control, but will wear out faster. The hardness of a wheel is usually represented by a number, followed by the letter '' A ''.
Ultimately, it is your type of skating that will guide your choice based on the last two variables, size and hardness. For recreational skaters, a wheel between 76 and 90mm is suitable. For those looking for more speed, the standard is at least 90mm and more. For aggressive skaters, the wheels are typically around 56mm, with the smaller wheels allowing more efficient acceleration and deceleration to perform tricks and jumps.
