Not all wheels are created equal, and not all the wheels are made for your skates or your skating style. If you’re not sure that type of wheel works better for you skating style, use the wheel tech below.
HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOU SHOULD CHANGE OR ROTATE YOUR WHEELS
ROTATE YOUR WHEELS:
Uneven wheels not only perform poorly, they’re also unsafe to skate on. Be sure to rotate your wheels as soon as they show sign of wear. Proper maintenance of your skates, wheels and bearings is essential to fun and safe skating.
CHANGE THE WHEELS:
New wheels will drastically increase the performance of your skate. You may be accustomed to skating on old wheels, but don’t be fooled. New wheels are smoother, grippier and increase performance significantly – you’ll be skating better with new Hyper wheels.
HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOU SHOULD CLEAN OR REPLACE YOUR BEARINGS
The best way to improve your skating is to improve your bearings and wheels. Bearings are the engine of your skates and often are neglected because you can’t see them. If your bearings, sound, look or feel worn, do something about it – it’ll increase your skating speed, and make your skating improve significantly. BSB offers a whole family of Lubes and Cleaners, in addition to the newest bearing technologies.
