How to Choose Your Stiffness
All Konixx wheels are given one of two types of stiffness designations. The first is the standard "A" rating designation. The second is our exclusive "+" rating system which is required due to the complexity of our wheels made for tiled surfaces . Please refer to the information below to help in your decision about picking the Konixx wheel best suited for your given skating style/surface.
For wheels with the standard “a” rating we suggest to following for all weights and skaters:
For Single Pour wheels with the Konixx “+” rating we suggest the following based on body weight, skating style, and surface skated on:
For Dual Pour* wheels with the Konixx “+” rating we suggest the following based on body weight, skating style, and surface skated on:
* The unique properties of a Dual Pour wheel require more specific stiffness limitations. As a result, in the Pure we offer three + ratings catering to higher body weights and more aggressive skating styles. The above guidelines for body weights are just that, guidelines. If you find yourself between two stiffness ratings I body weight, we suggest the softer of the two options for beginner to intermediate skaters and the stiffer of the two for advanced skaters.
**If you are over 230 lbs we cannot warranty the Pure wheel against breakage. If you are, we recommend one of our single pour wheels such as the Electron or Catalyst. Any purchases outside of the recommended stiffness’s above may result in voiding your warranty.
