We're excited to announce we've received our first order of Bones Bearings. Bones have maintained a huge following in the skateboard world for years and their name is beginning to catch on with the inline crowd.
What separates Bones from most other bearing manufacturers is their "Skate Rating" opposed to the Abec Rating. The Abec rating establishes dimensions, tolerances, geometry, and noise standards for factory and machine work, but offers no helpful criteria to follow for performance in recreational use like inline skating or skateboarding.

I just tried my first set of Bones Super Reds for some outdoor roller hockey and they were awesome. Right out of the package I was impressed with how fast and smooth they were spinning. I'm used to bearings that have a bit of a break in period. Everyone who gave them a spin with the wheel was blown away. After a long 3-4 hour outdoor game on a very dusty, rough surface, they are still flying. I'll be posting a review in the forum once I've been using them for awhile longer.
