Default "CAUTION" You could be in the No Spin/Roll Zone!!!

Something to ponder/remember with all the hype of the smaller/narrower wheels VS Standard Size Speed Versions.

If you are skating sessions on these smaller/narrower versions vs your speeds.

You will need to work much harder to attain the same speed. The smaller wheel will need to roll more times to cover the same distance. Your body motor will need to do it. More effort etc.

BUT: If you are skating Smaller track Roller Derby,skate in Spurts,not round and round all session etc. The smaller lighter weight wheel will excel in this venue.

Quicker feet,quicker acceleration and easier to turn on. Small track radius.

What is great. The manufactures are providing us more choices to cover more different bodys and venues.

The caveat,is to use all the info to make the best choice. Better now than ever before. Thank You!

Sometime I roll Maniac,old Zingers,Paser Fromera II all about 95a to 97a or so I had no issue trying to keep up with people that had standard size wheels people with small/mid wheels should NOT have any issue and still be able to enjoy those small/mid type wheels at no rules or any shuffle sessions.

i defiantly felt a difference in speed when i changed from a 57mm x 30mm to a 63mm x 35mm wheel for session/jam skating. not only in speed, but grip. both wheels are 99A.
taller wheels also have a longer contact patch, putting more tread on the floor.

now i just have to get another set in a softer duro for the slippery rinks that i sometimes visit.
