Bones Bearings Ceramic Super Reds Skateboard Bearings
Bones Ceramic Super REDS are lighter, and provide faster acceleration, because the balls weigh much less. They create less friction and are thus faster than Super REDS, with or without lubricant! When you get dirt into your ceramic Super REDS, the ceramic balls will help to re-polish the steel races flat again, providing a self-healing benefit because ceramic balls are so much harder than steel. Finally, ceramic balls won’t rust, further lengthening their life.
- Set of 8 Bearings
- Skate Rated™
- Pre-lubed with Speed Cream
Skate Rated™ - Skate Rated bearings are engineered and tested by Bones Wheels to withstand the high impacts of hard landings and the high side loads of turning. These bearings roll faster and last longer than bearings that use the ABEC rating system. To give Skate Rated bearings an ABEC rating would ignore all the improvements Bones has made over the industry standard. Skate Rated bearings are specifically designed for skateboarding, not electric motors.
Ceramic - Ceramic bearings are lighter than steel bearings and roll smoother with less friction. Ceramic bearings also resist dirt and moisture better than steel, but aren't completely waterproof.
On a side note, if your comparing these to the $150 Swiss ceramic these are better. The Swiss ceramics take forever to break in. They’re super slow out the box and they feel like your riding on sand. Maybe I got a defective set? But other friends agree that Reds ceramics are far superior.
Other than that they are exceptional. I'm definitely a stickler when it comes to the performance of my bearings. I've skated every bearing produced by Bones (exception for the swiss ceramics). Initially, I was a little worried with this purchase since I didn't want to pay the extra 30$ for these when I could just buy another set of swiss. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised. These bearings are on par with the standard swiss bearings that I've come to love, with the added benefits of minimal maintenance, reduced noise and smoother roll. The only downside, in terms of their performance, is that they do take a while to break in and they do need to be re-lubricated more often than standard bearings.
