The major difference between them is the way torsion force is generated. Spice Pilot uses 1 Torsion Spring while OKTO / OKTOSURF has a capsule that is composed of 8 tension springs. Both systems are good for all-round skating. With that said, some skaters prefer quick and hard rebounds for each pump (Spice Pilot) while others like more smooth but strong rebounds (OKTO / OKTOSURF).
ABEC-9 bearings refer to a specific type of skateboard bearings that adhere to the ABEC (Annular Bearing Engineering Committee) rating system. Spacers are small cylindrical inserts placed between the bearings inside the skateboard wheels to maintain proper alignment and spacing between the bearings. ABEC-9 is one of the highest ratings on the scale, indicating a very high level of precision and smoothness. They are designed to minimize friction and provide a fast and smooth ride. In addition, the components can withstand the rigors of skateboarding, including impacts, vibrations, and varying weather conditions.
SHR92AA bushings refers to skateboard bushings that are used in skateboard trucks and are made of high-quality urethane material. The "SHR" stands for "Super High Rebound," and its characteristic of SHR92AA bushings means they have a quick and lively response. When a skateboarder leans or applies pressure to a turn or maneuver, the bushings quickly compress and then rebound, providing a snappy and energetic feel. This enhanced rebound contributes to a more dynamic and agile skateboarding experience.
Premium Urethane Wheels are highly versatile and suitable for various skateboarding styles and terrains. They are made from Urethane, a synthetic material that is resistant to wear, chipping, and flat-spotting, providing a longer lifespan compared to lower-quality wheels. Premium Urethane Wheels offer excellent grip and traction on various surfaces, allowing skateboarders to maintain control while performing tricks, carving, or riding at high speeds. Moreover, they absorb vibrations and impact from rough surfaces, reducing fatigue and enhancing overall skateboarding experience. Their responsiveness is excellent, allowing skateboarders to execute tricks and maneuvers with precision, which can quickly respond to changes in weight distribution and provide the necessary feedback for controlled turns, slides, and technical moves.
The riser pad on the back truck allows for increased turning and maneuverability. By adding height between the truck baseplate and the deck, it creates a greater angle of tilt, which translates into more responsive and fluid turns similar to those experienced while surfing. This enhanced maneuverability enables surfers to mimic the feeling of carving on waves while riding SpiceSkate. It also acts as a sort of spring, providing additional rebound and energy transfer during pumping motions. This allows riders to generate speed more efficiently and effectively. More importantly, it adds a layer of flexibility and vibration dampening, which can create a smoother and more surf-like ride, providing a more fluid and connected experience between the rider, the board, and the terrain.
