Skateboarding exists since 1950 and is right now one of the most popular board sports around the globe and will be also competing at the next Olympic Games.

















A skateboard is made by different components :

  • Skateboard Deck: decks vary in size going from 7 to 10.5 inches. Wider boards are usually more stable than smaller boards.Smaller boards on the on the other hand perform better tricks


  • Trucks: connect the board to the wheels and are made of two parts, axle and baseplate and are made of aluminium. In the middle there is a soft part called bushing that influences the resistance in turning the skateboard


  • Wheels: are made of polyurethane and come in different sizes and hardness in a scale (durometer) from 75A to 101A


  • Bearings: each wheel is mounted to the trucks thanks to a pair of bearings. Bearings are available in different ABEC scales from 1(slowest) to 9(fastest)
