What makes speed skate wheels different?


When you look at a speed skating wheel, you’ll see the wheel’s profile is not round at all, but elliptical. Acceleration, speed and skate control are all made possible by this shape.

Checking your wheels (including indoor wheels) to see that the original elliptical profile remains is part of gauging wear.
