The best-selling outdoor hockey wheel in the world! Superior abrasion resistance in a high rebound formula keeps you cutting and slicing longer through the roughest of surfaces. Full radius profile available in 80mm, 76mm and 72mm - all 85A.
The best wheels for playing roller hockey outdoors are those that grip asphalt really well and are relatively hard wheels in the 82A-84A range. Wheels measuring 72 mm-80 mm in diameter are typically the best bet.
So, we tried to avoid bumps and small rocks whenever we could. And the ride quality somewhat improved. Also, the ample urethane in the wheels rewarded us for the impacts we took by refusing to capitulate too soon to the constant abuse.
These Labeda wheels are what you want to use on rough concrete and asphalt. You can use 80mm wheels if you have a flat frame, but you can order a set of 4 80mm wheels and 4-76mm wheels if your hockey skate has a rockered chassis.
The right wheels for the job have a wheel profile that has you moving around pretty quickly. Good wheels for outdoor rink hockey also enable you to make real quick turns. Finally, you need wheels that help you stop and start fast, wheels that accelerate quickly.
But when it comes to playing inline hockey outside, you need bigger wheels. The nearer to 80mm the diameter for outdoor roller rink wheels, the better. Many players that do their thing outdoors seem to prefer 80mm wheels.
When choosing indoor inline skate wheels, the weight of the skater should be a crucial consideration. Generally, the heavier the indoor hockey player is, the harder the indoor wheels should be. And the lighter the indoor player, the softer should the wheels be.
As you can see on the skater weight vs. durometer rule table above, the best outdoor hockey wheels typically have a durometer of between 82A and 84A according to inlinewarehouse.com.
Back in the day, some roller hockey skates came with a rockered frame. An example is the old-school Bauer Tuuk frame. Skates came with a rockered system built into the frame and all you had to do was mount the wheels.
But this is how my husband sets up his hi-lo configuration: He mounts a 72mm wheel out front followed by a 76mm wheel and finally by two 80mm wheels at the back. That is, 72mm/76mm/80mm/80mm. Actually, this is the most common configuration for most people.

Roller inline hockey, or inline hockey is a variant of hockey played on a hard, smooth surface, with players using inline skates to move and ice hockey sticks to shoot a hard, plastic puck into their opponent's goal to score points. The sport is a very fast-paced and free-flowing game and is considered a contact sport, but body checking is prohibited. There are five players including the goalkeeper from each team on the rink at a time, while teams normally consist of 16 players. There are professional leagues, one of which is the National Roller Hockey League (NRHL). While it is not a contact sport, there are exceptions, i.e. the NRHL involves fighting.
Unlike ice hockey, there are no blue lines or defensive zones in roller hockey. This means that, according to most rule codes, there are no offsides or icings that can occur during game play. This along with fewer players on the rink allows for faster gameplay. There are traditionally two 20-minute periods or four 10-minute periods with a stopped clock.
In the United States, the highest governing body for the sport is USA Roller Sports (USARS). USARS is credited with the development of the present-day rules and regulations that is used throughout multiple tournament series. They organize tournaments across the United States but they are not the only tournament provider. Some of the other independent tournament providers include Amateur Athletic Union, North American Roller Championships, and the Torhs 2 Hot 4 Ice tournament series. Internationally, inline hockey is represented by two different unions, the World Skate and the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). Each organizes its own annual world championships.
Some of the earliest video evidence of the sport is newsreel footage from the Giornale Luce taken in Vienna, Austria in 1938. The video shows players using inline skates with five metal wheels and a front wheel brake. Each team has four skaters plus a netminder. They are using ice hockey sticks, with taped blades, and the goals closely resemble ice hockey goals of the wire-mesh type common in Europe around that time. The game is being played with a ball on a rectangular outdoor court, which appears to be asphalt.
In the United States, the USA Roller Sports (USARS) predecessor organization was the Roller Skating Rink Operators Association (RSROA). In 1940, the RSROA published a set of roller hockey rules drawn from a booklet by the National Hockey League (NHL) which was designed to grow interest in playing hockey on roller skates. However, because of the intervention of World War II, the organization of roller hockey tournaments did not receive significant development until after this war in the late 1940s. At first skating club interest was confined to the northern tier of the United States, including the bordering Canadian cities. Puck roller hockey's spread in popularity during that period was helped along by the attention of local commercial television, which was getting its start and in desperate need for events to fill air time. The increased interest in the sport led in 1959 to the selection of a National Puck Hockey Committee to formulate special rules for the performance of puck hockey in the variety of rink sizes available to roller skates. The American Roller Hockey Association (ARHA) was formed with Joe Spillman, a roller rink operator from San Antonio, Texas as its first Commissioner. Under Spillman's direction, the sport of hockey on roller skates grew rapidly throughout the United States.
During the 1960 RSROA National Roller Skating Championships held in Little Rock, Arkansas, exhibition games for ball and puck roller hockey were held. Following these Nationals, the first full competitive season officially began in North America for roller hockey. This, of course, had puck roller hockey entirely performed on quad skates, for at that time there were no inline skates available. State and regional competitions determined the teams that would move on to the North American Championships.
On 1 September 1965, during their semi-annual board meeting, the RSROA installed puck hockey as an equal and separate division of roller hockey, which included ball hockey, a format most popular in Europe and South America. It was decided that both ball and puck hockey would compete under the same rules and award separate gold medal winners. Budd Van Roekel, RSROA president, was quoted in the January 1965 issue of Skate Magazine,
We believe this move will spark further growth of our roller hockey program. While we recognize the popularity of the international ball-and-cane version of hockey, we also realize that thousands of potential United States and Canadian players are more familiar with the Canadian stick-and-puck type sport. We see no reason why the two versions of the sport cannot grow side by side.
The 1966 North American Championships marked the return of puck hockey after a four-year hiatus. The final game was a nail biter and the crowd appreciated the fast pace and excitement of puck hockey. The final game was between the Canadians of Windsor, Ontario and the Wildcats of Detroit, Michigan, the defending champions from 1962. The score seesawed between the two teams and was finally decided in favor of the Canadians with a final score of 5 to 3. The win gave the Canadian team their only gold medal for the whole North American Championships. One Canadian team player was quoted in the 1966 Fall issue of Skate Magazine, "We simply had to win the (puck) hockey championships, otherwise our fathers wouldn't allow us to return home." Another milestone occurred for puck roller hockey in 1977, when the North American Puck Hockey Championship was held in a venue away from ball hockey for the first time. The 1977 puck championships were staged in Houston, Texas to large crowds and a great amount of publicity, as fourteen newspapers and television stations covered the event. The year 1977 was also a milestone for women with this championship marking the debut of a women's hockey national championship. 59ce067264
