What Skateboard Parts Do I Need?
Skateboard parts can be used to give your board a fresh look as well as replace any worn-out areas. This will not only enhance your skating experience but also allow you to express yourself when skateboarding. Skateboard parts include all the hardware that you need to modify and upgrade your board such as grip tape, bearings, washers and risers. While some of these parts are not the most well-known components of your board, they are essential in making your setup ride well.
Modifying Your Setup
Skateboards are made up of several parts. Skateboard grip tape is a great way to freshen things up but is also essential in providing you with sufficient grip when attempting flips and tricks. Skateboard bearings help the wheels to spin and for your board to roll more smoothly. Let’s not forget about skateboard nuts and bolts also. Skateboard bolts for regular skate setups come in a variety of lengths ranging from ⅞ inch, 1 inch, 1.25 and 1.5 inches.
With the right parts, it is possible to build a skateboard from scratch. If you want to upgrade your setup but are not sure how to do it, then check out our guide on How To Build A Skateboard.
