The 10 Best Companies That Create Skateboard Wheel Designs

Not only is creativity shown through skateboard deck designs, but its also displayed through other parts as well, like the wheel.

Skateboard wheels are commonly made from polyurethane and come in many different shapes and sizes due to the different types of skating. Smaller wheels (48-54 mm) keep the board closer to the ground and allow street skaters to pull off tricks easier. Larger wheels (65-90 mm) roll faster which is perfect for vert skaters. Design is also important because it adds a sense of individuality to a skater.

The following is a list of 8 companies that have taken skateboard wheel designs to a whole new level.

They dont just "street" skate anymore

While "street" style skating is still the most popular style it's far from the only type of skateboarding right now. Wheel brands like ABEC-11 and Gravity put a lot more R&D into there products. Look beyond "sneaker store" brands for the best products. For smaller style wheels check out "Speedlab"
