BOLT 608-2RS Skateboard Bearings in Red – Set of 8
Over at ABC, we know how important it is to be on top form. This is why we have extensively researched to produce one of the best Skateboard Bearings on the market. These all-round Bearings perform in all conditions, suitable for all skaters and riding styles.
Skate Bearings in High Performance:
When developing Skateboard Bearings, there are many qualities to consider. The higher the ABEC rating, the lower the tolerances are when the Bearing is manufactured. Meaning that an ABEC 1 Bearing, although extremely cost-effective, will not perform as well as a higher ABEC rated Bearing.
Our ABEC 5 is the ideal Bearing of choice. Giving a tighter tolerance than an ABEC1, the ABEC 5 will tick all the boxes in terms of cost, durability, weight and speed. Unlike an ABEC 1, the ABEC 5 Bearing will glide and continue to do so with minimal effort giving ultimate stability (ideal for skating!) For an all round rider, this Bearing is for you!
ABEC Rating Explained:
The ABEC scale is an industry accepted standard for the tolerances of a Ball Bearing. There are a few classes from largest to smallest tolerances. There is no ABEC 11 standard despite the claims of some sellers. The higher ABEC classes provide better precision, efficiency and greater speed capabilities
ABEC 1 – Tend to be the least expensive, the most crude, and the least accurate. The quality of the steel is not very high
ABEC 3 – Are generally inexpensive and do not roll smoothly or quickly
ABEC 5 – Bearings are standard for most types of skateboarding. This rating gets you a fast speed at an affordable cost
