Importance of Choosing the Right Pro Scooter WheelsThe team at Fuzion Pro Scooters is often asked questions about what pro scooter wheels to buy and how to choose the best scooter wheels. There are many types of wheels on the market, and it is important that you match your wheels to your scooter and your skill level. The type of material that the wheel is made from, its size, shape, and tolerance all play a factor in determining how the wheel will perform. This article is an overview of the different types of pro scooter wheels and how to figure out what is the right type for you. So, let’s get into it.
What is Wheel Hardness?Scooter wheel hardness is ranked on a durometer scale of 0-100a with 100a being the hardest. Fuzion’s X-Series and Z-Series models rank 85 and above. For instance, our top of the line pro scooter Z375 has a durometer ranking of 88a. Furthermore, all Fuzion Pro Scooter models, from intro level to high-end pro, come stock with high rebound PU wheels to ensure each scooter offers the smooth riding experience that is only possible with durable, quality materials.
Why is the Diameter of a Scooter Wheel Important?A scooter wheel with a bigger diameter is a taller wheel, and taller wheels are recommended for more advanced riders who will be cruising at faster speeds. Fuzion’s entry level scooters, such as the X5, are smaller in diameter than the high-end Z375 Pro Scooter model, which comes stock with large 120mm wheels. While smaller wheels are more maneuverable, scooter wheels with a larger diameter will ensure a faster, softer ride.
What is the Wheel Core?The core, or hub, of a pro scooter wheel is usually either a solid or spoked core. Spoked core wheels are lighter, but can wear down quicker than solid core wheels. Freestyle scootering is tough on the components, and so you want to make sure the core of the scooter wheel is made out of metal, not plastic.
What are ABEC Bearings?Scooter wheel bearings allow the wheels to spin smoothly. The Annular Bearing Engineering Committee (ABEC) developed an industry accepted standard for the tolerance of precision bearings. The higher the number, the better your scooter wheels perform. The grades include 1,3,5,7, and 9. Fuzion Pro Scooters uses ABEC 9 bearings for all of our pro models.
