Risers on a skateboard
The make it smoother to ride right? They add a little weight maybe but not very much. Is there a negitive effect of useing risers??
they are really light try independents they usually have the logo cut out so that deducts weight and they also protect the board from the trucks id buy em they are like 5 bucks

yeah they protect from wheel bite and act as a shock (a lil bit). a good investment

Fuck risers, I hate the feel of them. I keep my trucks pretty damn tight so I never have to worry about wheel bite though.
for skateboarding it's for less wheel bite, barely smoother ride (that's controlled by wheels) and amount of pop. more risers = more pop. they also make for a higher board height, which is harder to push on.
Longboarders use them mostly for decreasing wheelbite. but angled risers are used to adjust the truck angles, therefore affecting turning radius.

i always put em on my boards. gives more pop and i find it really helps with stopping pressure cracks and making the deck last longer. dont really notice a diff for smoothness though

You've got it backwards. The lower to the ground your board is, the more pop you have. Therefore the bigger your risers, the less pop. That's also why you want smaller wheels if you're spend more time doing tricks than just cruising.
I have angled risers on my longboard and no risers on my regular deck. If you're just doing tricks I'd go without them.
