Root Industries entered the US market with their AIR wheels a couple of years back. While hollow core technology was emerging, Root saw an opportunity and pounced on it, bringing the lightest and most cost effective hollow core wheel in the form of the AIR wheel. The AIR wheels exploded in the US and worldwide and haven't slowed down in years. With over 30 color ways, no other manufacturer even comes close to matching the available colors. Not to mention that Root is constantly adding new variations of their color ways every year. The Root AIR wheel goes down as one of our top 5 recommendations for a hollow core scooter wheel.
Root Industries AIR Wheels are 88A PU, which means that Root Industries intended them to be ridden on the street because they are harder and more durable than 86A wheels. Root Industries Scooter Wheels are 24mm wide at the core and should be used with 24mm wheels spacers. The PU width is 24mm. Most pro scooter forks and decks were designed to handle a 24mm wheel core. Since both the core and PU of the Root Industries Scooter Wheels are 24mm, every fork and deck we sell should be compatible with these wheels. Root Industries AIR Wheels have a 110mm outer diameter, making them perfect for the advanced beginner to intermediate riders. 110mm wheels have long been the standard diameter for most intermediate pro scooters. However, as scooter wheels become wider and taller due to pro riders need for big trick speed, 110mm wheels are becoming the norm for beginner to intermediate scooter riders. Root Industries AIR Wheels 110mm come standard with pre-installed bearings.
