Spartan Skateboard Utop - Product parameters
The length of the board is basically the length of the entire item. The longer the board, the more space there is. On the other hand, shorter boards are easier to carry around. The length is usually given in inches. 1 inch = 2.54 cm.
Boards are usually made of wood. The highest quality you can get is Canadian maple. Other types of wood present more affordable options.
The cheapest option are boards made of PVC or other plastic material. Aside from price, their advantage lies also in high durability. However, we recommend them mainly for beginners, only occasional riders and children. They are also not really suitable for stunts. The exception are penny boards, where the majority of products is made of plastic.
By observing the weight limit of the product, you significantly increase its service life and prevent it from wearing down prematurely. It is not recommended to exceed this limit.
The ABEC-1 through ABEC-9 scale denotes the presision of the manufacture process. The higher the number, the more precisely the bearings are made (smaller margin). Other scales are used mainly on children's skates.
The thickness of the board goes hand in hand with the number of layers and material used. The thicker the board, the more durable it is. However, it's also heavier.
To beginners, we recommend using boards of average thickness, starting with a good compromise between weight and durability.
These days, most skateboard, penny board and longboard wheels are usually made of the same material - polyurethane (PU) with various admixtures. It's because these wheels have good riding qualities and are resistant to damage. Wheels made of PVC are recommended mainly for children. Their advantage is a low price.
Wheel hardness between 76A and 90A is ideal for casual skating.
Wheel hardness over 90A is better suitable for speed and race skating.
Standard board width ranges between 17.5 cm (7") and 21 cm (8.25"). However, there are both wider and narrower models. Generally speaking, narrower boards under 20.1 cm (8") are better for beginners or riders that are not that tall. Wider boards are more suitable for advanced and taller riders.
