Serious about ramp and want advice on what gear to get?

We recommend
Wide trucks (balance and axel grinds)
* Plates mounted as far back as possible. No short forward derby skates! (Balance)
* Beginner skaters on slower, sticky wheels – 88 to 92, smaller diameter. Good for grip and not too fast
* Advanced skaters on fast and hard wheels - 98A to 84B (104 equivalent), large diameter. Hard, fast and slippery
* CIB sliders, essential for stalls and slides.

Come and see us in store or give us a call on 08 8431 2792 if you need advice.
