are one of the most important and yet ignored components
of any skate. Proper bearing rating, installation and maintenance
are keys to getting maximum advantage out of your wheels.
We sell the best bearings available anywhere.
precision bearings are rated by the Annular Bearing Engineers
Committee (ABEC), which has established a rating system
to evaluate bearings. The higher the ABEC number the better
the bearing. Most lower cost imported skates use bearings
that are not even rated. Better skates use ABEC-3. The best
that we have seen is ABEC-9. Very few manufacturers produce
ABEC-7 or 9. Some companies that cannot manufacture the
higher rated bearings because of the required strict tolerances,
may claim that there are no significant differences between
ratings. We disagree. Use our ABEC-7 bearings and feel the
difference. If you are not happy, return them. For the price
we charge, and the performance you receive from these bearings,
you won't want anything else. (Note: Every bearing we sell
is embossed with its ABEC rating).
