When it comes to skating at your local skate rink or your bi-weekly Roller Derby practice, the need for indoor wheels is a must.  Having a wheel with the appropriate hardness for the different types of surfaces you will be skating on is key when it comes to being the best skater you can be.  Indoor wheels have a higher durometer rating, ranging from 88A to 101A and above.  The higher the rating, the harder the wheel.  The harder the wheel, the “faster”/slicker it will run.  If you use a designated outdoor wheel (78A-85A) indoors, you won’t get the full, ideal, skating experience.  The softer wheel will stick to that indoor surface making pushing those wheels more of a challenge.  Think skating in quicksand. 

If you want to choose a suitable indoor wheel for all of your skating needs, take into consideration the surface in which you’ll be skating on (Cement? Wood? Painted Masonite? Polished Concrete? Sport Court? Etc.)  Each surface will provide you with a different experience.  The grippier/stickier surfaces (painted or plasticy) will require a faster wheel (i.e. 95A to 97/101A) to hit higher speeds and make those laps count.  The slicker floors (polished or waxed) will have you gliding all over the place if you don’t know how to control yourself.  For these floors, getting a slightly softer wheel (i.e. 88A to 91/93A) will help you hold those turns when you’re coming around top speed.

Depending on what type of skating you are looking to do and which types of surfaces you’ll be skating on, having the right indoor wheel will make all of your skating dreams come true.  Let us help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
