You thought we were kidding about higher ollies, eh? Let Paul Schmitt explain the SCIENCE:
That said, even if you’re not planning on popping over stacks of boards, these risers will help in a bunch of different ways:
- more space between tail and floor means easier manuals and wheelies
- steeper angle when the board pops means easier impossibles
- a taller board allows you to use bigger wheels – increasing speed – and reduces the risk of wheelbite
- taller boards make rail stands easier if freestyle’s your thing.
In short, it’s win/win/win/win!
