Browse options from brands at the top of the game, including Labeda, Konixx, Bauer, and Rink Rat.

Athletes on aggressive trick skates who need small wheels for maneuverability and jumps will find 59mm skate wheels from Labeda, Konixx, and Bauer in this collection, together with the standard 72–76mm inline skate wheels hockey players use. For the skater using a hi-lo configuration, we offer larger 80mm inline skate wheels to complete your setup.

The best wheels for inline skates are the ones designed to handle your weight as well as the skating surface. You’ll need to make sure the durometer rating (the hardness of the wheel) suits the playing surface. A smooth surface requires softer wheels with more grip. If you’re skating on rough outdoor surfaces, hard wheels with less grip are best for your skates. Check the product description on the wheel to find the weight guidelines. Refer to our inline skate wheel definitions to determine which ones might be best for you.
Inline skate wheels are specifically designed to handle certain weights and surface conditions, so you can’t put any wheel on an inline skate and expect a one-size-fits-all result. Inline skate wheels come in different sizes, ranging from small roller hockey goalie skate wheels to large wheels for racing skates. Refer to our article on skate wheels to determine the ones you need. Remember to clean your skate bearings and rotate your inline skate wheels as part of regular maintenance.
Traditionally, players consider 4-wheel inline skates better for roller hockey or street hockey because the skates are designed for power and control. Three-wheel skates, because the wheels are so much larger, are commonly used for speed racing, trick skating, and long-distance fitness. But we offer 3-wheel skates for beginner youth skaters since they are designed for a very small foot.
The 78a on inline skate wheels refers to the durometer rating for that wheel. The durometer rating measures hardness, and 78a is a common hardness for multi-surface skaters.
