Cruisers differ from skateboards in the fact that their deck has a different shape and in the fact that they have larger wheels. The differently shaped, usually wider deck, and the large, soft wheels together make cruisers perfect for long-distance travel and for riding on poor, rough surfaces.
Cruisers can be used for all kinds of journeys. Some take their cruiser to the local skate park, while others use their cruiser to go to the shop or work.
