Skate Wheel Specifications

Definitions and explanations of skate wheel specifications including wheel durometer, wheel size, wheel profile, the rebound factor, skate wheel materials, and other attributes to consider when you are purchasing skate wheels.


When you shop for skate wheels you will find that they are often marked with their size and hardness, something like this: 80 MM (size) and 85A (hardness). Wheel size and wheel hardness - also called durameter - are two of the most important specifications you will need to consider when you are purchasing wheels.

Skate Wheel Durometer
A definition of skate wheel durometer and which durometer is best for different types of skating.

Skate Wheel Size
A explanation of how the size of a skate wheel is measured, the range of skate wheel sizes available, and which size is best for which type of skating.

Skate Wheel Profile
A definition of skate wheel profile, what skate wheel shapes are available, and which skate wheel profile is best for different types of skating.

Skate Wheel Rebound
A definition of the rebound factor, which is sometimes also called the bounce factor.

Skate Wheel Materials
Materials that go into the manufacture of skate wheels.

What are ABEC Bearings?
The ABEC scale is a system for measuring the manufacturing tolerances of the precision bearings used inside skate wheels to make them turn smoothly. Note that when you purchase new wheels they will not come with bearings. When you are ready to replace your bearings you will need to buy them separately.
