The warm months of spring to summer are the ideal times to skate around your favourite places. We may be very cautious these days, but skating can be a way to enjoy the solitary moments under the warm sun and cool breeze on your face. Speaking of caution, there's always a reason to secure your shredding days with necessary skate parts that need replacement or upgrade.
While you're still comfortable riding your old, sturdy board, the components attached to it may need some cleaning, replacement or even an upgrade. It's good practice to always check your board before leaving home to see if there's anything that needs replacement such are your skateboard trucks and/or truck bolts, grip tape or skate wheels; or any additions such as skateboard riser pads. Whichever you need prior a shredding day, it's best to address it right away to ensure your safety and hours of enjoyment.
This is a great time to be out and about, and we are stoked to announce the arrival of the Skate Components and Hardware Spring 2021 Drop here at Yakwax! You'll never know what you need on the next skating session, so better check your board now and see what you need.
Take a sneak peak at our top five favourites from the Skate Components and Hardware Spring 2021 Drop
If your board uses bigger wheels, the Bones 1/8 inch Skateboard Riser Pads (Black, 1/8in) are ideal to use to minimise board cracks and wheel bite. So, if you're aiming for a smooth ride and landing with your current setup, it's best to include these risers.
The Sushi Pagoda 5.25 Skateboard Trucks (Pair, Silver/Black) are ideal for riders who enjoy more pops and grinds while they shred. These wheels are quite sturdy and longer-lasting despite the usual 'wear and tear' of skateboards.
The Bones STF McClung Unknown V1 99a Skateboard Wheels (White, 52mm) are durable wheels designed with superb grip and for smoother rides. These wheels are ideal for speed-lovers, so you can ride and control your skateboard with ease.
If you need new grip tape that can withstand the elements, the Mob Grip Thrasher Japan Flame Griptape (Black, 9") is the best option. This collaboration between Mob Grip and Thrasher produced a rad grip tape in terms of durability, quality and graphics.
The Independent Mid Truck Inverted Kingpin (Polished, 144mm) is especially designed for the toughest and hardest landings. These trucks are made to provide ample grind clearance and low profile construction to achieve that much-needed pop.
An enjoyable shredding session would mean very minimal problems or cause for concerns while you're out there at your favourite locations.
