|Wheel Size:||When to use them:|
Small, slower wheels; stable for trick riding and smaller riders skating street, skate parks, and bowls.
Average wheel size for beginners and bigger riders skating street, skate parks, bowls, and vert ramps.
Specialty riders skating longboards, old-school boards, downhill, and dirt boards; made for speed and rougher surfaces.
Wheel diameter affects how quickly you accelerate and how tightly you can turn. Smaller wheels result in a slower ride, whereas larger wheels result in a faster one. And because they’re lower to the ground and typically easier to control, smaller wheels are ideal for technical or street skating. If you’re a beginner or someone who uses a skateboard as daily transportation, you’ll want to look into larger wheels instead. Their increased diameters offer speed and balance all in one, making them perfect for low-key cruising or vert skating.
Made with Featherlight Street technology, the center core adds strength designed for impact while reducing weight.

A collaboration with Chad Eaton aka Timber! Element has expanded on our 3 design principles to create a capsule collection around work-wear, military and athletic outdoor aesthetics and function.
Skateboard wheel diameter is measured in millimeters (mm); most wheels range from 50-75 mm, and the lower the number, the smaller the wheel.
