      What Longboard Wheel Hardness Do I Need?

      Wheel hardness is measured in durometers (A scale), significantly affects the ride quality and grip. Softer wheels (75A-87A) provide more grip and a smoother ride on rough surfaces, making them ideal for cruising and downhill riding. Harder wheels (88A-101A) are faster and slide more easily, which is beneficial for freestyle and sliding. The right hardness depends on your riding style and the terrain you typically ride on.

      What Size Longboard Wheels Do I Need?

      When selecting longboard wheels, understanding the sizing is crucial for optimizing performance and ride quality. Longboard wheels typically range from 60mm to 100mm in diameter, each size catering to different riding styles and terrains.

      Smaller wheels, ranging from 60mm to 70mm, offer quicker acceleration and are ideal for technical riding, tricks, and smoother surfaces.

      Medium-sized wheels, from 70mm to 85mm, provide a balanced mix of speed and maneuverability, making them perfect for cruising, carving, and general-purpose riding.

      Larger wheels, between 85mm and 100mm, excel in rolling over rough surfaces, providing higher top speeds and a smoother ride, which is essential for downhill racing and long-distance commuting. The wheel size directly affects ride stability, speed, and the ability to handle various terrains, making it a critical consideration for any longboard setup.

      What Is The Contact Patch On Longboard Wheels?

      The contact patch is the area of the wheel that touches the ground. A larger contact patch provides more grip and stability, ideal for downhill and carving. A smaller contact patch reduces friction, making it easier to slide and perform technical maneuvers. The contact patch's width affects how the wheel wears over time and its overall performance on different surfaces.

      Which Longboard Wheels For Carving

      When looking for longboard carving wheels, you want to look for a set that will provide you with the grip in those tight turns. We would recommend wheels that are on the larger side (65mm+) as well as them being soft. Having softer wheels mean they're a bit more plush so with grip onto the surface in those tight turns. 

      The Orangatang In Heat 75mm wheels are a popular model within the carving community. A well balanced and well proportioned wheel, it is perfect for those hard carves. The thick lip provides the wheels with progressive energy in and out of turns.

      Which Longboard Wheels For Cruising

      When it comes to finding the best longboard wheels for cruising, you will want a wheel that is larger and softer, these allows you to ride smoothly over cracks and bumps in the surface.

      Some great wheels for cruising are:
