Speed skating wheels

Wheels for speed skating traditionally has a diameter in the range of 80-110mm. Lately, there has been a development in the wheel sizes, the diameter has been increasing up to 125mm for further improved speed.

The durometer depends on the surface. 85-87a is often used on the rough asphalt as found in the Northern European roads. The profile of a speed skating wheel is narrow, in order to create a smaller contact point with the surface. the narrow profile of the wheel thereby creates less friction and higher speeds.
