May 18, 2007, Newsletter Issue #66: Skateboard Risers

Tip of the Week

Risers are used to give you more clearance between the bottom of your board and the surface of the wheel. They are the only skateboard part that is optional. Sold in pairs, they range from 1/8 to 1/2 thick and help to prevent wheelbite. Wheelbite can occur from putting too much of your weight on one side of the board, causing the deck to touch a wheel and stop its rotation.
