Illustrative literature, full descriptions, and complete specifications of the skateboards are included with the ruling request.

The applicable subheading for the four types of skateboards will be 9506.99.6080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Articles and equipment for general physical exercise, gymnastics, athletics, other sports...or outdoor games...: Other: Other."
