Now here’s an idea so obvious we wonder why it took so long. When you’re learning skateboard tricks, it’s tricky to keep things steady, because you’ve got those pesky wheels moving you around when you land. But there’s an alternative way.
Skater Trainers are small rubber jackets that fit over the wheels on your deck to add more stability while you’re learning to Ollie properly. Sounds simple, and it is, but the concept seems to be done properly.
Just slip the covers on, and the board lands flat and stable each time, meaning you can get more practice in during the same period of time. Once you’ve mastered the trick, take off the trainers and concentrate on the rest of the landing process and you’re golden. Priced at $19 for a set of four.
