Guide Review - Bearings - Bones Swiss Ceramics
So what does that mean for you, skating on the streets, parks and ramps? Bones Swiss Ceramics have ceramic balls inside, instead of polished steel like everyone else. The Ceramic balls are lighter than steel, stronger, and roll with less friction. This means you'll get going fast quicker, you'll have a higher top speed, and you won't need to replace your bearings as often.
Ceramics are also easier to clean - they come lubricated with Bones Speed Cream and are easy to pop open and clean. The bearings come with instructions on how to care for them, and the Bones web site has help as well.
The one draw back to Bones Ceramics is the price. It would be great if bearings like this were handed out for free, but Communism failed, so we're forced to actually pay for stuff. These bearings will run you over a hundred dollars in the states. So, if you are a new skater, you might want to buy cheaper bearings at first, unless you just happen to be a new skater with loads of cash. These are serious competition skateboard bearings, and they are the best.
So, if you are a pro, an am, or someone who skates a lot and wants the best, pick up a set of Bones Swiss Ceramics.
