Scooter wheels are an important part of your ride. They are your contact point with the ground, and how your scooter handles will in part come down to the type of wheels you choose.
Check your Wheel Size
120mm wheels may sound really cool, until you realise your setup simply won’t fit them. Be sure to get a size that matches up with your deck, fork and brake. Many rides these days are compatible with 100mm and 110mm wheels, but not all are compatible with 120m+ yet. If you’re an intermediate or advanced rider looking to go large, be sure to grab the right setup before you buy your wheels. If you’re a beginner it may be best to stick with 100mm or 110mm for now. The smaller wheels are lighter and keep you lower to the ground, whilst the larger wheels are designed for riding faster and more aggressively.
Wheel hardness & why it matters
You may have seen some little numbers/letters on your scooter wheels or whilst browsing online. 86A, 88A for example. This is a measure of the hardness of your wheel. It’s based off the durometer scale which ranges from 0 to 100A, with 100A being the hardest.
The lower the number, the softer your wheels, so you’ll get more grip. The compromise with soft wheels is they are not as fast. On the other side of the coin, harder wheels are faster but they have less grip. How and where you ride will determine what compound will suit you.
Keep in mind the compound is not the only thing you need to consider when looking for speed and a smooth ride. Bearings, wheel profile and more play a part in this.
The wheel cores are more than just a place for a wicked design. They actually serve a purpose…as well as looking cool. But what’s it all mean?
There are different types of cores when it comes to scooter wheels. A solid core is just as it sounds, solid. This is the heaviest of the types due to its nature, but it’s also durable. Spoked Cores are made with holes and cut-outs, giving the appearance of a series of spokes around the wheel. Many look a lot like a shrunk down Tuff mag from a BMX. Hollow cores often have the appearance of a solid core, but are hollow on the inside. There is also a new style of hollow core available called a honey core. It’s essentially a hollow core wheel with cut-outs or holes in the sides making it even lighter. Avoid plastic cores unless you’re three, they just aren’t that strong. Go for a quality aluminium core as they are stronger and more shock resistant. It’s definitely worth the investment.
With that out of the way, different cores simply look wicked. There are so many cool styles and designs hitting the market it’s hard to choose.
