If you’re looking to ace your skate game with solid Skateboard Bearings, then you’ve come to right place!
Bearings are the ones that enable the metal found on the outside of the wheel to roll around the hinge without doing any damage to the metal. Since ceramic balls have been introduced to the market, skateboarders have increased their potential speed to a whole new different plane. Skateboard bearings have been standardized so that all wheel and bearing brands are compatible. The standard skateboard bearing size is an 8mm inner race diameter.
WHAT TYPE OF SKATEBOARD BEARINGS ARE THERE?
Skateboard Bearings come in three types – Steel, Ceramic, or Titanium. Steel bearings are the industry standard, and are both durable and economical. Ceramic bearings are harder than steel and deform less when pressure is applied to them. Titanium is lightweight, durable and highly rust resistant.
WHAT ARE SKATEBOARD BEARINGS MADE OF?
Skateboard bearing parts are made of balls, shields, inner and outer races, bearing spacers, and retainers.
WHAT ARE ABEC RATINGS?
The ABEC rating is a system developed to measure the tolerances and physical limits of ball bearings used in very fast spinning machinery. ABEC ratings are shown on almost all skateboard bearings, but a higher rating doesn’t necessarily mean it is better for skateboarding.
TIP: The best skateboard bearings are clean, well-oiled bearings. If you want to go fast, keep ‘em clean! Check out our Skateboard Bearing Lubrication’s.
