Are you looking for the perfect wheels for your scooter? Then you have come to the right place. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced rider, you need to pay close attention to your scooter’s wheels and all of their design parts.
Here are some key points for scooter wheels you should consider before purchasing:
Wheel Size and Width
Wheel sizes are typically 100, 110, 120, and 125 millimeters. The larger the size, the heavier they will be (and your scooter). Beginners should aim for 110mm, but more advanced riders can play around and find the perfect size for them.
The industry standard for wheel width is 24mm, but 30mm is one size that is becoming increasingly more popular.
The harder a scooter wheel is, the longer it will last. However, softer wheels also can provide better grip, which makes them great options for indoor riding and outdoor skateparks. Hardness ranges from 0-100a, 0 being the softest and 100a being the hardest. The most common hardness to see on pro scooter wheels is 86a.
The cores of the wheels are composed of either metal or plastic. Cores can come in different types as well: solid, spoked, hollow, and honey.
● Solid cores: solid, allow for no holes or airflow, and very strong
● Spoked cores: somewhat holed and have cutout parts
● Hollow cores: hollow, which makes them lightweight and strong
● Honey cores: similar to hollow cores, but they are much lighter and have perforated holes.
