Giotto 63mm Figure Wheels
The Giotto 47D, 50D, 54D, 58D, and 61D professional figure wheels provide a great range of grip and lot’s of roll. They are primarily used for the circle figures, but can also be used for loops. Many competitors use combinations of hardnesses of the Giotto to achieve the best skating result.
The tread color identifies which hardness the wheels are.
- Blue = 47D
- Grey = 50D
- Cream = 54D
- Yellow = 58D
- White = 61D
Set of 8 wheels
In the USA, most skaters use the 61D, while stepping down to the 54D or sometimes the 58D for the inside toe wheels as additional push wheels.
The softer the wheel, or lower shore “D” hardness number, the more the grip and slightly less roll. The harder the wheel, or higher shore “D” number, the more the roll, with slightly less grip. The shore “D” scale is used for rubber and plastics, while the shore “A” scale is used for urethane.
It is almost always recommended to use spacers in the wheels, when using standard 7mm bearings.
