The longboard wheels form the contact with the ground, and thus largely determine the driving behavior of longboards.

Whether you are looking for classics such as ABEC11 or prefer the cheap blank variant wählst - We have certainly the right role für you in the assortment. For loangboards and of course also for skateboards.
A small roller can be accelerated quickly. Due to the small roll circumference, it is zügig brought to a medium final speed with little effort. Once there, however, small longboard wheels must be kept at speed by constant "pushing". They do not roll long after and also quickly reduce the speed again. Small longboard wheels are therefore more suitable for small longboards, cruisers or slalom setups, where exactly these properties are required. Of course, it also depends on the deck, how large the wheels can be. If the wheels are located under the board (without recesses), as in classic cruisers, for example, there must of course be sufficient distance between the deck and the wheels to still be able to make turns without the wheels "sticking" to the board or blocking (wheelbites).
Large longboard wheels
Larger longboard wheels need more time and power to accelerate. However, once they get going, they turn much longer than small wheels. In addition, the larger circumference of such rollers increases the smoothness and stability. Most longboards are designed for wheels between 70mm and a maximum of just over 100mm. Tapered shapes or rather angular recesses über the wheels prevent the so-called wheelbites. A good average for a longboard wheel would be 76mm. Here is the "sweet spot" between acceleration, speed and effort für a normal adult.
The rollers Härte
When choosing the right wheel is of course also to pay attention to the Härte. The A scale used on most wheels goes up to 100 and is härter as the number increases. A fairly soft role has in the longboard area something a hardness of 78A and the härtesten variants are so around 86A. Rollers with über 90 or even 100a are more suitable for the street area. About the properties: Soft Wheels provide more grip on the surface. They are designed to keep the traction as long as possible without slipping away. Hard rollers can lose contact with the ground correspondingly early. So if you like to slide, go for the harder rollers. The hardness also has an impact on speed and ride comfort. Soft longboard or cruiser wheels ride more comfortably, but will also lose some speed due to the good grip compared to the hard ones.
So depending on the size and layout of the board, a roller between 65mm and 80mm with a medium Härte around the 80A is recommended. The various manufacturers of longboard wheels such as Abec11, Seismic, Bigfoot, Orangatang or also the Blank wheels offered by us are available in all imaginable colors and shapes.
