Aggressive rollerblading is a discipline of urban sliding on a ramp or in the street which requires a very great technique, because acrobatics are at the heart of the practice. The choice of wheels for aggressive skating is therefore essential to ensure comfort and maneuverability, resistance to all obstacles, but also safety for the rider.
The importance of having good aggressive roller wheels
Aggressive skating requires a lot of technical skill, and the equipment is often damaged during acrobatics and figures of all kinds. The choice of the wheel will therefore ensure two essential conditions:
·The quality of the glide, thanks to the wheels that facilitate speed gain, balance and maneuverability;
·Resistance to shocks and friction that aggressive skating undergoes continuously.
These two essential criteria will have a direct link with the rider's safety. A good set of wheels for aggressive skating , adapted to the practice, ensures a smooth and reliable glide, and limits the risk of falls and injury.
How to choose your aggressive roller wheels?
The choice of roller wheels is a major issue for the quality and comfort of urban gliding. It is therefore essential to know the points to check when purchasing aggressive roller wheels .
·The size of the wheels for street skating, aggressive skating : ranging from 55 mm to 76 mm, the size of the wheels has an influence on stability and speed. The bigger the wheel, the faster the rider goes without much effort. The smaller the wheel, the more stability the rider gains. Before choosing a wheel size, it is important to check your frames, as they do not accept all large wheel sizes;
·The hardness of aggressive roller wheels : a hard or soft wheel is expressed by a number followed by the letter A. The higher the number, the harder the wheel, and vice versa. A hard aggressive roller skating wheel makes it easy to gain speed, and its longer life is particularly sought after for street use. The soft wheels adhere better to the ground, which corresponds more to a practice in skateparks, or on slippery grounds;
The width of the aggressive roller wheel : the more the wheel is in contact with the ground, like a flat wheel, the more stable the rider is. The round wheels are more manoeuvrable and offer a faster glide.
