Bearings - What they don’t tell you


Ceramics can be so much smoother due to their composition!!!!!

Put a Steel Ball under a microscope, and even the highest ABEC Rated will have tiny dimples in its surface!!!!!

These are the things that cause friction, and slow things down!!!!!

. As well as this your balls hold their shape for longer

LOL i had to giggle a little *out comes the 8 year old in me*



I just replaced my bearings with Bones Reds.

Most of my bearing knowledge is from RC Monster trucks and sure; these are the cheapest skate bearings but the quality doesn’t come close to the bearings I run on my truck -fully sealed bearings that run 20-30thou rpm-

My truck bearings aren’t expected to carry 80kg and G forces = up 500kg but they do have to deal with heat and impacts that bend titanium and split 75/75 Al.
I imagine economy comes into play with skate bearings though.

When it comes down to; it I’ll just replace my skate bearings with the next higher rated ones when these fail. Which is more likely to be due to rust not wear.

Hello everyone, I am from Australia, I am fond of games. I would like to share useful information for players on this site., it was previously helpful to me.


One of the most significant fitness advantages that longboarding offers is the improved balance of the body. Balance is the human body’s ability to retain the line of gravity between you and the ground, with minimal tilting. Great balance requires skills of all kinds, such as the visual system, your motor and sensory system, and your vestibular system. People with better body balance are more self-aware and stay healthy.
