What are the main components of a skateboard?

If you are new to this exciting universe and want to discover everything about the main components of a skateboard, you've come to the right place!

Let's start from the beginning: a skateboard is composed of various elements that work together to provide a unique and rewarding riding experience. Here are the main components that make up a skateboard:

Skateboard Deck

Skateboard Deck

The deck is the beating heart of your skateboard. This part is designed to support your weight during the ride. Usually made of wood, such as maple or birch, but there are also variations in advanced materials like carbon fiber. Want to know more? Explore our wide selection of skateboard decks in the dedicated section!


Skateboard Truck

Skateboard trucks are the metal parts that connect the wheels to the deck. They come in various sizes to fit the width of the deck and different heights to meet your riding preferences. Learn more by visiting our section dedicated to skateboard trucks!

Bushings (Cushions)

Skateboard Bushings

The bushings, also known as "cushions," are the rubbery pieces found inside the trucks and influence the steering of your skateboard. You can choose from different hardness levels of bushings: softer ones offer smooth and light steering, while harder ones ensure precise and stable riding. You can even change them to customize the riding feel!


Skateboard Bearings

Skateboard bearings are the parts that allow the wheels to spin smoothly. They are made of steel or ceramics and can vary in terms of smoothness. Bearings with higher smoothness enable smoother and faster rides, while less smooth ones offer more control. You'll need 8 bearings (2 per wheel) to assemble or replace worn-out ones.


Skateboard Wheels

Skateboard wheels are what keep you in contact with the ground. Usually made of polyurethane, wheels come in different sizes, hardnesses, and shapes. Each set of wheels contains 4 pieces. Explore our range of skateboard wheels and find the perfect ones for your riding style!



The griptape is a sticky sheet of sandpaper-like material that is applied to the top of the deck. This layer ensures a firm and stable grip during the ride. Over time, you might need to replace it, but here at Xtreme Skate Shop, we have a fantastic selection to choose from!

Mounting Hardware

Skateboard Hardware

To assemble your skateboard, you'll need a mounting hardware kit, which includes screws and nuts needed to secure the trucks to the deck. Each truck requires 4 screws and 4 nuts, so the kit contains 8 pieces. You can find this and other useful spare parts in the Hardware section of our website.

Riser Pads and Shock Pads

Riser Pads

Riser pads are plastic or rubber inserts that are installed between the trucks and the skateboard deck. They serve to increase the height of the skateboard, creating more space between the wheels and the deck. Shock pads are thinner and help absorb vibrations, making the ride smoother.

Skate Tools

Your best friend for assembling and disassembling the skateboard is the Skate Tool. This multifunctional tool allows you to unscrew and tighten bolts, including those of the trucks and wheels. The skate tool usually also includes an allen wrench, a Phillips screwdriver, and hex wrenches. Some models even offer a griptape file and a bearing puller.

Remember the importance of using the right tools to protect the parts of your skateboard during assembly or disassembly.
