Roller derby wheels

In roller derby you use indoor wheels because you play indoor.
Finding the right wheel is all about finding the right balance between wheels, floor and yourself.
Consider the hardness!
• A grippy floor calls for harder wheels 93-99a.
• In many sports arenas, we often see 93-95a as a popular choice.
• To avoid sliding out on the more slippery floor, it can be recommended to go down to 88-92a

The skater's weight is also a factor to consider since a heavy skater usually needs a harder wheel.

The wheel size is based on personal preferences typically a diameter of 59mm and 62mm are popular choices. The width is either a standard or slim. The standard is quite popular, but some people prefer a slim wheel for a more agile wheel.

Notice: Some skaters prefer to mix the wheels in hardness. If you decide to experiment with this be aware that you, choose the same diameter for all the wheels.
