Important Terms to Know About Skating Equipment and Supplies
Those who love skating know there are many accessories and supplies that are needed for this fun sport. You may like to roller skate with the old-fashioned four-wheel configuration, or you may like to zip around the neighborhood on inline skates. Perhaps you’re a budding hockey player who’s learning the ropes. Whatever your situation, you’ll need the proper gear, such as knee pads, helmets, elbow pads and wrist guards. You can buy this gear from any store where sporting goods such as ice skates and skateboards are sold. You can even purchase supplies for skating competitions, as well as uniforms and costumes. The following are some important terms to know about skating equipment and supplies.

Grip Tape: Used on skateboards, this adhesive is sticky on one side with a friction surface on the other to provide traction for the skateboarder’s feet. It’s placed on the deck of the skateboard and is available in a variety of colors and prints.

Longboard: A longer version of a standard skateboard.

Ball Bearings: This rolling element bearing utilizes small balls to separate the bearing races. This type of bearing cuts down on rotational friction to support varying loads.

Footplate: The part of the skate that connects to the boot.

Quad Skates: Traditional configuration of two wheels in front and two wheels in back when referring to roller skating. This sport became more and more popular in the early 1900s, enjoying a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s. Inline skates replaced roller skates as the popular skate of choice in the early 1990s.

Retailers and wholesalers sell a wide range of brands. Consumers can visit retail sporting goods stores to purchase anything from grip tape and pads to stickers and ice skates. Wholesalers sell in bulk at a discount. Online sites sell a variety of skating equipment and supplies, often with free or discounted shipping. This business is widespread and can include all forms of skating, such as skateboarding, ice skating, roller skating, and inline skating.

As such, there are many professionals in this industry that have different jobs to do, from manufacturers to sales associates to repair technicians. Some sell tool kits to help fix your broken skates, decks, gear, or helmets. Others offer rentals in addition to sales. Some skate shops are located in or near roller skating rinks and skate parks to offer rentals and sales of inline skates, ice skates, accessories, and shoes.

Technicians are typically on hand to repair roller-skating equipment and provide parts replacement, such as wheels and bolts. They can also install and service grip tape, bearings, long boards, and trucks using special tools. Sometimes, customers have to leave their skates for service over a period of a few days, depending on how busy the shop is. Other times, a technician can fix the problem on site quickly as the customer waits.

Consumers can also head online to purchase their supplies from a reputable dealer, which may offer shipping and delivery, reviews, coupons, and full-color catalogs of apparel, accessories, and clothing. People who enjoy ice skating, roller skating, inline skating, and skateboarding frequent these types of stores, as do casual consumers who just want to try it out with rentals first. Purchasing the proper new or used gear, accessories, equipment, and supplies, is necessary in these sports.
