Bones Bearings Super Reds 608 8 MMRegular price £28.99
by Powell Peralta / Skate One Corp
Precision Skateboard / Longboard Bearings
608 / 8mm sized
New sealed packs of 8 bearings
8 brand new Bones bearings made by Powell skateboards , with non-contact, frictionless, rubber shields which are easily removable allowing easy maintenance/re-lubrication. The shields are looser fitting allowing the bearings to spin easier and the cage is nylon, not metal as in most bearings. This drastically reduces drag resulting in super fast spinning bearings.
Don't ask what ABEC rating Bones bearings are as they are not ABEC rated, that is they don't even score one! They are built looser to spin easier...perfect for boards/skates but not for industrial machinery. What do you want your bearings for?
Skaters in the know rate these bearings very highly though just proving that ABEC means nothing in skateboard terms. These bearings are in my ramp/park board and have been for years, when they are worn out they'll be replaced by more "Bones".
Remember; Two bearings per wheel!
8 bearings = enough for 4 wheels. (e.g. a complete skateboard)
16 bearings = enough for 8 wheels. (e.g. a pair of skates)
Bones Bearings : Super Reds
Super REDS™ are designed from the ground up to be the best bearing on the market at this price point. What Super REDS™ are not is a REDS™ bearing with just better super finishing (surface polishing). Super REDS™ are a superior quality bearing, using higher quality steel races, better quality and grade balls, and a superior surface finish. The result is a bearing that is as fast as REDS™ but quieter, smoother, and longer lasting . Super REDS™ use a black shield and laser engraving to differentiate themselves from original REDS™.
* Higher quality steel races, better quality and grade balls, and a superior surface finish.
* Single, non-contact, removable rubber shield for easy cleaning and less friction.
* Pre-lubricated with Speed Cream™ racing lubricant.
* High speed nylon ball retainer for greater strength and speed.
* Skate Rated™ clearances, tolerances, materials and lubricant provide the best performance and durability
