Ice Professional Dance Wheels
RollLine Ice 63mm professional dance wheels have been designed to meet the new demands of the world of team dance, solo dance, and precision/show sroups. They have properties that are normally not available in one wheel, incredible smoothness, tight grip, low noise and super roll by using the right blend of three urethane polymers and a design using the low rider tire concept (large hub and a smaller, thinner tread). The Delrin Hub is strong, very light, and has extremely close tolerances for roundness, trueness, and for the cage where the bearings and spacers are mounted. The 88A, 90A, 92A, 95A, and 97A Ice wheels are for skating surfaces with a large range of grip.
The hubs of the Ice professional dance wheels are chromed. The back side of the wheel is where the printing is and the color of the hub identifies which hardness the wheel is.
- 88A = Blue
- 90A = Gold
- 92A = Green
- 95A = Silver/White
- 97A = Silver/Grey
Set of 8 wheels
In the USA, most skaters use the Ice 95A (which is similar to others 101A in grip, but with more roll). The Ice 88A, 90A, and 92A are used for the ability to press strong edges on skating surfaces that are a bit less than tight. The Ice 97A (which is similar to others 103A in grip, but with more roll), is best used on high level competitive skating surfaces that are a bit more tight to provide that incredible roll.
The shore “A” scale only goes to 100, so numbers higher are marketing numbers only, and not representative of true hardnesses of the wheels. The softer the wheel, or lower shore “A” hardness number, the more the grip and slightly less roll. The harder the wheel, or higher shore “A” number, the more the roll, with slightly less grip.
It is almost always recommended to use spacers in the wheels, when using standard 7mm bearings.
