The Titus Online Shop offers practically every imaginable shape, width, and deck construction available. The perfect deck for you depends on several factors. Your body size, shoe size, and preferred skate terrain are among the most important things, but you’ll find all the info you need about decks in our Titus Skateboard Guide.
WHICH SKATEBOARD TRUCKS ARE BEST FOR ME?
A skateboard is more than just a deck, you’re gonna need some trucks too! It’s important to make sure that thewidth and height of yourskateboard trucksare fitting to the deck width and your personal skate style. Generally, the truck width should match the width of your deck as closely as possible. When searching for trucks, we recommend filtering your search results in our online shop by “deck width”. Then, you will see only trucks that suit your deck properly. There arelow,medium, and high heightsof various truck models. The height will influence steering performance (in addition to the bushings and how tight you adjust your trucks) and depends on personal preference. Alow truckis generally ideal for technical street skatingwhilehigh trucksare usually preferred by park and transition skaters. You can also filter your truck search results in our shop by truck height.
SELECTING THE PERFECT SKATEBOARD WHEELS FOR YOU
Wheels are your board’s direct contact with the ground and they make a big difference in how your board will skate! Here, you must specifically pay attention to the hardness and diameter of the wheel. If youtend to skate rougher surfaces, you may want to opt for a softer wheel for a more comfortable ride. If you oftenskate at skateparks or places with smooth ground, a harder wheel will roll fasterand offer desirable slideability. The diameter ofskateboard wheelsare measured in millimeters.Larger wheels have a higher top speedbut are less responsive at slower speeds.Smaller wheels respond quickly and weigh lessbut are not as ideal for skating fast in a bowl or large ramp. Various wheel shapes can also impact how your board will lock into grinds on rails and ledges.
