Outdoor sports have been gaining popularity in the last few years, especially the offbeat ones. Offbeat sports like skateboarding have gained its position in the list of top most offbeat sports. Skateboarding is not that easy and it requires lots of dedication and hard work to properly master the sport. It also requires lots of body balance and creativity and mental strength that can help you to improvise your own stunts and who knows one day you can also participate in the world skateboard championships as well. Keeping that aside, skateboarding also requires certain other necessities as well. The most important thing while skateboarding is your skateboard. You need to properly choose your skateboard as it will help you to master the art form. But, if you want you can also customize your own skateboard. With skateboarding parts like roller ball bearing you can increase or decrease the speed of your skateboard. The bearing determines how smooth your skateboard is and it can also help you to make your skateboard faster as usual. You can choose from the single bearing or the double bearing option according to your need. All you need to do is to just replace your old bearing with the new one and you can improve your speed while skateboarding.
While adjusting the skateboard on your own, you also need to tighten up and loosen some joints and nuts, as well. For that, you can use the T tool which comes with 3 types of grooves in it. This tool can help you to properly adjust various skateboarding parts easily. You can use this tool for complete assembly of your skateboard. With this tool, you can also adjust your axle nuts, kingpin nut, and also the mounting hardware. It also comes with a screwdriver at the top which makes this tool, an all-in-one tool.
The trucks are the most important part of your skateboard as it is the one that will help you make your board stronger and durable while you are on the go. Skateboarding components like the trucks are made from stainless steel and are light in weight. But in spite of the lightweight, they are durable. All you need to do is to just attach the truck to your skateboard and attach the bearings with it. All you are left with now is the wheels that need to be attached on the bearing and you are good to go. The trucks also help in moving the skateboard in all possible directions.
The wheels are among the second most important skateboarding components. It is the one that will help you glide and roll on your skateboard. They are generally made from PU that lasts long in spite of extreme wear and tear. Some even come with a built-in bearing that provides more flexibility in rolling. You need to make sure that the wheels you choose matches with your board’s diameter and truck.
