What are Cushions?

Cushions (also known as Bushings) are one of the cheapest and probably the most neglected components of roller skates. If we were talking cars, we would be talking about suspension and shock absorbers.

Your cushions allow you to steer your roller skates properly, flexing as you shift your weight from side to side and letting your skates axles and wheels tilt, so you can turn. The cushion then springs back quickly in the other direction to straighten you up, ready for the next shift of your weight.

A hard cushion might make the skates feel more stable and possibly faster too. Softer cushions on your skates will let you make tighter turns etc. So cushions that would be great for roller skate dance moves wouldn’t necessarily be a great choice for landing jumps on the ramp.

Roller skate cushions usually have a “durometer rating” to tell you how hard it is with lower numbers being softer cushions. But there really isn’t a “one size fits all” and we would recommend that you have a selection of cushions with different ratings for different roller skating activities… it’s probably the only way you’ll find your preferences! Many experienced skaters change their cushions for different activities.

If like the writer of this article, you’re a little on the heavy side, you can probably leave the soft cushions, as they won’t have the “strength” to spring you back quickly after a turn.

But whatever you choose, remember that cushions are a roller skate component that wears out and need to be replaced regularly to maintain the quality of your roller skates, which is quick and easy with the right tool.
