Overview

No gimmicks or fluff here, just raw, functional skateboard bearings from Bronson. The Raw Bearings come shield-free, eliminating dirt/gunk buildup under the shield and allowing easy access for cleaning the inner parts as and when needed. The races (the metal rings) have a micro-thin tungsten lubricant coating keeping the bearings rolling smoother for longer.

Features

Details

Deep Groove Raceways - Balls sit and roll deeper in the raceway channels than weaker shallow groove designs.

Reduces axial and angular side impact damage and breakage, surfaces stay smooth and fast.

Micro-Groove Raceway Surfaces - Self-smoothing microscopic linear grooved raceway surfaces improve bearing lubrication and spin.

The micro grooves increase spin by eliminating the standing wave of lubricant just in front of the rolling ball.

Max Impact Cage Design - Strong, non-distortion glass filled nylon cage keep the balls precision spaced and oil circulating.

Ball cage socket surfaces engineered to hold oil and provide continuous ball lubrication.

High Speed Ceramic Oil - Oil is blended with nano-ceramic compounds for anti-wear protection for longer lasting bearings and improved speed.

Light and smooth- with additives that resist rust, moisture, corrosion and oxidation for prolonged oil life.

Hand Inspected for Quality - 100% hand inspected twice and micro-polished and ultrasonic solvent washed 3X prior to final lubrication.

Packaged in nitrogen filled shrink-wrap - reduces metal and oil oxidation until ready to be ridden.

They stay clean.

It doesn't make sense. The bearings are exposed to dirt and weather but they stay clean. I haven't had to clean these ever. I haven't had any blow out on me either. What happens is over time they'll loosen up as the bearings wear down. So instead of a sudden blow out you can kinda tell the bearing is wearing down. Not in a way that effects the skating but you can kinda wiggle the bearing a bit when it's become warn down. Takes quite a bit of time for them to get like that though. Mine are still going strong many months later

Asked by Claire on 2/20/2019
Do these bearings need any upkeep, lubricant etc?
Answered by Jeremy K (Tactics Employee) on 2/20/2019
Typically all bearings need some basic cleaning and lubrication if you want them to last longer. It comes down to personal preference. Since theses do not have the shields like other bearings, they are less likely to need more maintenance.

Asked by Cheetah Chrome on 12/13/2017
what is the real difference between the "G3" Bronson bearing and the "RAW" shieldless Bronson bearing?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 12/14/2017
These are a the essentially the G3 Bronson bearing that does not have the shield on the bearings. Some people prefer to take the shields off their bearing so they don't get clogged up and they some people prefer the louder noise as well.

Asked by Yaro on 5/22/2017
Doesn't it make it easier for the dirt and rain to get in the bearing ?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 5/24/2017
Without the shield it makes it easier for dirt to escape that does get in to your bearing, apposed to getting stuck in there forever behind the shield. Some people think it helps and some people think it makes it worse.
