Outdoor roller derby wheels are something that every skater needs. With a softer wheel, it's possible to get more grip on slick surfaces, or skates safely over very rough surfaces like concrete or asphalt. Outdoor roller derby wheels are wheels that allow skaters to participate in outdoor training and practices, or outdoor recreational roller skating, which helps train any derby skater to develop footwork, balance, and awareness. Medusa skates carries a wide variety of outdoor wheels for roller skates, including wheels by Atom, Radar, Kryptonics, Reckless and Sure Grip.

What makes roller skate wheels suitable for outdoor use? The easiest indicator to use is how hard or soft the wheel is. Wheels with a durometer under 80 are almost always suitable for outdoor roller skating. Wheels between 80 - 84a are typically considered hybrid wheels, with wheels harder than 88a used primarily indoors. Softer wheels absorb impact better than harder wheels, making it easier to move over uneven terrain like sidewalks and cracked pavement. The best indoor skate wheels are generally those that offer a smooth roll on the roughest surfaces, without making you work too hard to stay moving.
