The skateboards are made of excellent maple wood, offering great strength and durability to withstand the impacts against the ground after performing tricks and jumps in your favorite skatepark.
As for the skateboard wheels, they are made of polyurethane. They come in different sizes and hardness, which determines the level of resistance that the wheels have. It is important that you know what style you plan to develop with your skateboard, to choose the wheels that best suit your skateboarding style. If you want to perform big jumps, 90, 360 degree turns in the air and combinations of pirouettes, it is advisable to use the big wheels that have more resistance. If instead you plan to use it as a means of urban transport, to walk through the streets of your city, we advise you to use small wheels, as they are lighter and lighter, for easier handling, besides being closer to the ground you get a better balance.
History of skateboarding
It all started with the initiative of some surfers in the United States, who wanted to bring the adrenaline sensation they felt in the sea to the land. They thought of putting wheels on their boards to slide.
In 1960 the first skateboards began to be commercialized, made of wood on the board and the wheels made of ceramic and metal. Later in the 70's they designed and manufactured the polyurethane wheels, having greater success in speed, resistance, and mobility, so much so that today the wheels of the skateboard are still made of the same material.
Sales were growing exponentially in the 80s, thanks to its popularity, many people were joining the world of skateboarding. It has become established in the market as we can see today.
