The laws for skateboarding helmets vary from state to state. Many states require that skaters wear a helmet under a certain age, and some states like California make all skaters under 18 wear a CPSC Certified helmet at all times. CSPC skateboard helmets usually have an EPS protective liner that meets the safety standards for skateboarding. Make sure you check your state's regulations before ordering.

CPSC Certified Helmets: California requires that all skateboard helmets must meet the requirements of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Section 890.4 of the Streets and Highways Code enforces these standards in California and will not allow Warehouse Skateboards to ship non-CPSC Certified helmets to California.

Most bearings are measured by an ABEC rating. The higher the ABEC rating, the more accurate and precise the bearing will be. This rating system includes grades 1,3,5,7 and 9. The closer you get to an ABEC 9 rating, the faster and less friction you will have when skateboarding.

Many companies do not use the ABEC rating scale. They brand their own specific technology.

Note: Each brands skateboard helmet size will vary; therefore, it is best to measure your head and refer to the sizing chart specific to each brand of helmet. In order to properly measure your head, follow these steps:

Wrap a soft tape measure around your forehead, just above your eyebrows and ears. Keep the tape measure level from the front to the back of your head. Your skateboard helmet should sit low on your forehead.

If you do not have a flexible tape measure, try marking a string and measuring it against a ruler.

If the helmet is a gift or you cannot measure the skater's head, measure the inside of a current helmet or hat they wear.

Within each skateboard helmet product page there are specific measurements for each skate brand. Use that information, along with your head size, to determine your correct helmet size before placing your order. This will ensure that you receive the best fit.

Skateboard Decks Buying Guide

When choosing a skateboard deck, it's important to consider factors such as width, length, and construction. The average width of a skateboard deck is 7.5" to 8.25". Bigger riders and those who skate ramps typically prefer wider decks, while street skaters often choose smaller decks. The length of a skateboard deck is measured from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. The length is usually between 28" and 32" for regular skateboards, while longboards can be 32" and larger.

Deck type refers to the size or style of the skateboard deck. Vision offers various deck types, including cruisers, old school, freestyle, longboard, and downhill, each designed for different skateboarding styles.

Skateboard Wheels Buying Guide

Skateboard wheels are measured in millimeters (mm) and come in different sizes and durometers. The size of the wheel affects its speed, while the durometer determines its hardness. Vision offers a range of skateboard wheels suitable for different riding styles:

  • 50-53mm wheels: Small and slower wheels, stable for trick riding and smaller riders skating street, skate parks, and bowls.
  • 54-59mm wheels: Average wheel size for beginners and bigger riders skating street, skate parks, bowls, and vert ramps.
  • 60mm+ wheels: Specialty wheels for longboards, old-school boards, downhill, and rough surfaces, designed for speed.

The durometer of the wheels is measured on a scale from 78a to 101a+. Softer wheels (78a-87a) provide better grip and are suitable for cruising and rough surfaces, while harder wheels (96a-101a+) offer greater speed but less grip.

Skateboard Helmets

Safety is crucial when skateboarding, and wearing a helmet is highly recommended. The laws regarding skateboard helmet usage vary from state to state. Many states require skaters to wear a helmet under a certain age, and some states, like California, mandate the use of CPSC Certified helmets for all skaters under 18. Vision offers CPSC Certified helmets that meet the safety standards set by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Skateboard Bearings

Skateboard bearings play a vital role in the performance of your skateboard. They determine how smoothly and efficiently the wheels spin. Most bearings are measured by an ABEC rating, with higher ratings indicating greater precision and speed. Vision offers a range of skateboard bearings with different ABEC ratings to suit various skating preferences.

Vision Skateboards, founded by Mark Gonzales, has a rich history in the skateboarding industry. With their top-performing products, vibrant graphics, and commitment to quality, Vision continues to be a popular choice among skaters worldwide.
