Why do you Skate on Big Wheels? Shop Task Toronto's Zachary Ruiz Explains his Setup

"Why do you skate on big wheels?" I get this question a lot when I cruise around the city on my 100mm wheels.

Most entry-level skates  come with 80mm or 90mm wheels depending on what you're looking for. It can be an odd sight seeing someone skating in bigger wheels wheels in the city as most skates generally come with a smaller wheel

In my experience smaller wheels accelerate fast but have a low top speed. They  are more agile compared to bigger wheels which are less agile. They accelerate slow but have have a higher top speed.

A quick trip to Ikea can easily turn into an exhausting day long excursion with the added bonus of having to assemble everything once you get home. You know the deal, we work hard but how often do we really get to play?
