WELL CHOOSING YOUR FREESTYLE TROTTINETTE WHEELS
There are different criteria for the wheels that impact your freestyle scooter practice, so it's important to choose them well.
Correlation between speed and wheel size
Freestyle scooter wheels can have different diameters: 100mm, 110mm, 120mm, 125mm. The choice of wheel size is therefore crucial because it will have an impact on speed. The larger the freestyle scooter wheel, the greater your freestyle scooter speed. On the other hand, the smaller the freestyle scooter wheel, the easier the scooter will be.
of the wheel, compromise between comfort and service life
The hardness of the wheel, compromise between comfort and service life
We must also take into account the hardness of the freestyle scooter wheel. This corresponds to the eraser that is around. It is different according to the brands. A soft wheel will wear out faster but will have better cushioning and grip, conversely, a hard rubber will be stronger but will offer a less comfortable ride.
Do not neglect the wheel body
For most wheels, the body is an aluminum core. This choice of metal allows a rigid core, lightweight and robust at a time. But beware they are not always aluminum it depends on the make and model of the freestyle scooter wheel.
Do not forget the wheel bearings
Bearings are another feature of wheels that should not be underestimated. They are sold with the wheels but you can also buy them without. They allow, of course, the freestyle scooter wheel to rotate properly. They are quite sensitive to water and need to talk for a longer life. It is always good to have side bearings.
WARNING, some wheels are in "STD 12"This type of wheels is made for larger axles and therefore only fits on compatible scooters. Two brands realize this model, Ethic and UA If you have a doubt do not hesitate to come in shop or contact our scooter specialists.
