Speed skating wheels

Speed skating wheels are a different profile than wheels for other skating sports. While the skate is upright, their elliptical shape maximises speed via reduced rolling resistance. The more a skate leans over, like it would in a tight turn, the more grip becomes available.

Wheels are available in a range of sizes to suit skater size, strength and level of development. Smaller wheels are lighter and more manageable for new skaters. Larger wheels come into their own when training and racing speeds are much higher.

Modern high performance wheels feature a blended plastic and fibreglass hub. This reduces wheel weight and limits the amount a wheel can deform under load. Tyres are multi-layered, with a durable outer wheel molded onto a soft, high-rebound inner band. This design allows the wheel to respond faster to skater input and improve cornering.
