VERTSHOP.eu - the mailorder for Europe's vert scene
WELCOME TO VERTSHOP.eu - Europe's first on vertskating specialized onlineshop.
subVert started to sell hardware under this domain in 2005, when in all over Europe vertskater had problems to get their stuff: decks and trucks wider than 8.0" and big hard wheels, and a variety of protection.
Each year the range of articles grew and subVert started with V-SKATESHOP.com and V-LONGBOARDSHOP.com
In 2012 we simplified the categories and deleted VERTSHOP.eu, but you still find a huge range of vert- and pool- (and oldschool-) related stuff in our webshop.
You just have to know where to look for it.
Plese feel free to call us during business hours to get help by phone.
But here you also find a small guide, what you should be looking for if you want stuff for riding a vertramp or a pool.
for modern vertskating sizes of 8.25 to 8.7 are recommendated. If you come from streetskating and are used to a 7.75" wide deck, for example, an 8.25" will do. If you want to ride both street and vert with the same board, choose 8.0 or 8.25".
Trucks should have same size as the deck. You find indications in each category. 140mm / 5.25" and 150mm / 5.5" wide trucks are the most common size for vert. If you are oldschool" or want to ride pools, you should ride wider decks (8.7 to 9.5 or 10") and trucks of 160mm / 5.75" width or 169 / 6.0".
You're trucks/bushings should be well turnable, therefore light people need soft bushings (under 90A) and heavy people harder ones. We really can recommend the medium BONES BUSHINGS
Pads: 187 Killer pads get worn by most pro riders today and are quite cheap.
well, for the rest, don't hesitate to call us or write us. Best, if you ask for Lux ;-)
So let's start with DECKS!
