The Different Of E-skateboard Wheels

Electric skateboards have been gaining popularity in recent years due to their convenience, portability, and fun factor. However, many people are unaware of the different types of wheels that are available for electric skateboards, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Wheels are an essential component of any skateboard setup. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned veteran, picking the right wheels for your board can make a huge difference in your ride. Here’s our ultimate e-skateboard wheel guide to help you make the best choice.

The Parameters of Electric Skateboard Wheel

The standard wheels that come on most electric skateboards are made of polyurethane, which is a strong and durable material and can handle a lot of abuse. These are usually large and hard and are designed for maximum speed and stability. There are also wheels made of other materials, such as rubber or urethane. They are more soft and designed for a smoother ride.

The size of your wheels affects the speed and maneuverability of your longboard. Smaller wheels are better for doing tricks and carving, while larger wheels will roll faster and are better for cruising and downhill riding. The general rule of thumb is that smaller wheels are better for tricks and larger wheels are better for speed and stability. However, the larger wheels also require more power to move, so riders may want to choose a size based on their riding style and the terrain they will be riding on.

Wheel durometer is a measurement of wheel hardness. The durometer scale ranges from 0 to 100, with 0 being the softest and 100 being the hardest. The durometer rating of a wheel directly affects the wheel's performance and longevity. A wheel with a higher durometer rating will be harder, faster, and more durable. A wheel with a lower durometer rating will be softer, slower, and less durable. A wheel with a higher durometer rating will be good for riding on smooth surfaces, while a wheel with a lower durometer rating will be better for riding on rougher surfaces.

The most common durometers range from 78a to 101a, with the higher numbers representing a harder wheel. If you’re just starting out, a wheel in the 80a-84a range is usually a good choice.

Wheel Shape:
The wheel shape means the shape of the outermost lip on the skateboard wheel. The shape of your skateboard wheels can affect your speed, control, and even the type of terrain you can ride on. Here are the three main shapes you’ll come across when shopping for e-skateboard wheels: Rounded (for sliding), Square (for grip), or Beveled (combination of slip and grip).


The Different Types of Electric Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard wheels are a popular choice for electric skateboarders. They’re usually inexpensive and come in a variety of sizes, from small cruiser wheels to larger downhill wheels. Skateboard wheels usually have a softer urethane to provide better grip and a smoother ride. They’re great for cruising and carving on smooth roads but may not be the best option for off-roading or rough terrain.

Off-Road Wheels

Off-road wheels are designed for use in rougher terrain, such as dirt and gravel. They’re usually larger in size and have a harder urethane to provide more durability and grip. Off-road wheels can be used on paved roads but they tend to be slower and noisier than skateboard wheels.

All-Terrain Wheels

All-terrain wheels are a combination of skateboard and off-road wheels. They’re usually made of a harder urethane than skateboard wheels, but softer than off-road wheels. They’re designed to provide a good balance of grip and speed on both smooth roads and rougher terrain.

No matter which type of wheel you choose, it’s important to make sure that they are compatible with your electric skateboard. Different boards require different wheels, and it’s important to check the specifications before you make your purchase.

    Been riding boards since 1963 … metal skate wheels then … the cloud wheel is the best … nearly 240 carving miles on my
    teamGee h2o turbo … the board actually flexes some … perfect for street and sidewalk … allows an old man to stay balanced.

    Thanks for all the continued fun years,
