A selection of outdoor & hybrid wheels.
Staff Tip: Each wheel is assigned a number which is called a durometer. A durometer tells you how hard your wheel is, which indicates what surface you should skate on.
91 and to 101 are inside wheels. Artistic & Ramp skaters look for a 101 for fast spin
A hybrid has a number between 89 and 91 and can also be called pusher wheels. Lots of derby girls use them for grip. You can technically skate outside on a hybrid but the roll won't be as smooth for an adult as an outdoor wheel.
An outdoor wheel usually sits around a 78 which is the softest smoothest roll. You won't feel all the vibrations and if you hit a stone it will absorb it much better than a harder wheel. You can skate inside on outdoor wheels, you will just find your skates a lot stickier on the floor and you will have to work harder to go faster.
If you are not sure on what the durometer's mean and what you should be using (i.e. 91a) and would like to know about pusher wheels set-ups, check out this article. You can even download your own reference guide free of charge. You can also call us in store on 08 8431 2792
