Exploring Trucks, Wheels, and Bearings:
Trucks are the metal components mounted on the underside of the skateboard that hold the wheels in place. They greatly influence maneuverability and stability. When choosing trucks, consider their width, height, and the materials used. Wheels are available in various sizes and hardness levels, impacting speed, grip, and ride smoothness. Softer wheels offer more grip, while harder wheels provide greater speed. Bearings, essential for wheel rotation, come in different precision ratings. Higher precision bearings provide smoother rides and faster speeds. Experiment with different combinations of trucks, wheels, and bearings to customize your skateboard's performance to your liking.
