Hard vs. Soft, Slim vs. Wide, Aluminum vs. Nylon hubs…there are so many choices when choosing indoor roller derby wheels, particularly if you are testing out wheels for the first time. While no two wheels will feel the same, there are some general ways to figure out what wheels are right for you. Harder wheels offer greater potential for speed, but they may be difficult for newer skaters to control. Softer wheels tend to give skaters more grip, at the expense of speed. Heavier skaters may find, however, that harder wheels are more comfortable, and very light skaters may decide that softer wheels do not require as much of a speed sacrifice. Slim wheels offer more maneuverability, but they have less surface area for gripping. These wheels are ideal for skaters who juke and move their feet a lot, or have quick, shallow crossovers. Wider wheels offer the best grip on the track, and can help less stable skaters keep their stability. Aluminum hubs are durable, but can be heavier, while nylon hubs are lighter, but offer a different experience in terms of roll.
