How to Choose Your Stiffness

  • OUR WHEELS HAVE A NUMERICAL SCALE TO HELP SKATERS CHOOSE THE PROPER STIFFNESS BASED ON SEVERAL FACTORS SUCH AS WEIGHT AND SKATING STYLE. OUR +0 IS THE OPTIMUM WHEEL FOR MOST PLAYERS.
  • THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF THE PURE WHEEL REQUIRE MORE SPECIFIC STIFFNESS LIMITATIONS.  AS A RESULT, IN THE PURE WE OFFER TWO ADDITIONAL STIFFNESS OPTIONS (THE +1 AND THE +2) CATERING TO HIGHER BODY WEIGHTS AND MORE AGGRESSIVE SKATING STYLES.  IF YOU ARE OVER 170 POUNDS AND/OR YOUR SKATING STYLE INCORPORATES A LOT OF HARD TURNING AND STOPPING THEN IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU BUMP UP FROM THE +0.
  • IN THE PURE WHEEL USE THE FOLLOWING AS A GENERAL GUIDELINE:

 

 *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 stiffnesses above may result in voiding your warranty.
