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.
