    it depends on what kinds you get. the softer ones are to prevent pressure cracks. harder ones are to make ur board higher in an attempt to prevent wheelbite

    The harder ones are harder to emulate the wood so its like you actual trucks are higher the soft ones absorb impact.

    they're plastic or rubber plates that go under your trucks and raise your deck higher off the ground.

    risers help prevent pressure cracks on your board,but also reduce your boards pop . i go without risers and tighten my trucks to a certain level . and absorb pressure when im landing a tricks.

    wrong they do not reduce pressure cracks thats a myth caused by shock pads which are very similar but dont do the same thing

    A riser rises your board. Its that easy.

    A riser is a flat pad that is added between the truck and the deck. They have been known to prevent wheelbite(when the wheel makes contact with the deck while turning), reduce pressure cracks(by taking the strain of the wood itself), raise the board of the ground, and add weight.

    Riser pads are hard plastic that raise your board, shock pads are gellyish and softer like those things you put on baseball bats to stop the vibration, and they absorb shock to prevent pressure cracks.

    to help stop wheels from biting the deck. its like adding 1/4 inch to your truck height too. not any effect you can feel for the pop, can also help stop pressure crackage.

    I use soft soft ones, (don't remember the brand), and I never get pressure cracks. Mine are just under 1/8 of an inch thick.

    yes it does because now it takes more to pop the board now that it is higher, so you have a higher angle of execution.

    I've always used risers (been skating off and on for almost 10 years). They do not prevent pressure cracks though....
