The Top Ten

Bones Swiss Ceramics
BONES SWISS CERAMICS ARE THE BEST! I got mine 2 weeks ago and they werent all that fast... I just takes a little bit to wear them in and now they go supper fast! GET BONES SWISS CERAMICS AND YOU WONT BE SORRY!
My bones swiss bearing lasted 13 years and they still roll faster than any other bearing I ever had get swissy.

The only kind I get is reds because they roll for along time and they do not break that easy! The second I got the bearing people said that they did not roll easy I told them that it needed time to break in and get used so much.

Bones Reds are perfect last long roll quick and cheap for what you get! I recently brought some spitfire burners for the same price and where terrible! 3 have popped in just weeks! Also I spent 40 pounds on some new wheels and because of my popped bearings ruined my wheels! :( GET REDS!
I have had two sets of these and they are amazing. They are super fast and roll forever. They do take a while to break in but once you do the are great.
AwEsOmE last long fast I spun them when I first got them and it didn't go fast but when they got broken in it spun 2:00 minutes

5Lucky Bearings
I'm ultra impressed with how my luckys held up, they're only 3s, and I have enough for reds now, and I'll probly go w/ lucky reds
Lucky are just lucky, they last long, they spin very fast, my bones broke really quickly, I skate every day so I need bearings that last and don't brake quickly that's why I picked lucky, tony hawk
I used reds but thy got slow after a while. When I got this barrings man they still rolling fast and I need fast barrings

6Rush Abec 9
Fast smooth long lasting especially if your a vert skater just like me! And bones swiss die fast even with lube
These bearings beat all, with a long lasting smooth ride. I put these on some nineballs 70 mm and they are hella fast.
They are a great way to get bearings just as good as the bones swiss but cheaper. I got rush abec 9's and they are better than my previous destructo sendai's, and those were very very good.

Best thing that's not ceramic, costs less than plain reds. Really fast, smooth ride, and they last forever
They are the SAME as reds they are both made in the same factory, they are just cheaper! The only difference is reds are easier to clean but mini logo has better shields to keep dirt out.
I think these are better than reds I have both

14Shake Junt
SHAKE JUNT BEARINGS ARE SICK FAST AND SO SMOOTH! These this will spin forever and with a price much like reds, these are the best deal, it is really worth it.
They are sick, especially the triple OG's abec-7's. Its awesome and go's well with spit fire wheels.
Shake junk bearings one the best bearing you get. Mine spin for 7min and 46.8 sec after 1 hour or riding. There way better then bones red and it should be worth more money then they are so go for shake junk and you won't be sorry for getting them

16Bones Super REDS
These Bearings are great, been looking and researching for a while then decided to get the super reds and I honestly couldn't be happier! I do personally recommend these bearings as they roll quick, fast and move very easily. They are also quite cheap as well which is great! :D
Bones Super Reds are my favorite all-time bearings! You have to try them! There really cheap and you can pick them up at any local skate or surf shop. Just give them a try! You won't regret it!
This bearings are pretty fast they are also cheap if you can't afford bone swiss I would recommend you to get these bearings you won't regret it

They last longer and roll faster than other $10 bearings that are hyped. I got them on all my vintage cruisers and I've never had an issue.
Really fast and even if they get water in them they are nonstop... I especialy like the "Gold series signature Bearings."
FAST is all I can say, they good

18Spit Fire
They are best bearings I ever had. They spin very fast and last forever. Also they are cheap. So trust me those bearings are insane.
Are very great the burners time:4 minuts and not are too expensive

They're the best ones! I go super fast down hills and in the park. Definitely the best choice.

22Rush Abec 7
Ok bearings, go for Rush ABEC 9 or Reds

23Indy 7's
I'm going to be straight out.. I have skated every well known bearing except for the ceramics and I can honestly say indy 7s and bones swiss are the best... they are identical in performance put the bones are easier to clean thus they end up lasting longer
Absolutely up there with Bones Swiss. I've been skating since 76 and I've had NMB, Germany speed, Speedy Lunatic, Reds, Swiss, Indys, Zero, ATM, ETC... Indy 7s are what I've been buying lately.
These roll so much better then bones reds and roll for 20 seconds with the right wheels.

24World Industry Bearings
They aren't very durable but they spin fast and last forever if you don't change the wheels by yourself

Andale Swiss is faster than bones and gives a smoother ride!
They are faster than racecars with hydrogollic engines. I can jump down 150 stairs with them, and I went over 80000 miles on them traveling across America.

29Diamond Bearings
Diamond bearings are spectactular
Just take good care of them and don't
Forget to clean them every time you
Use your board and keep them out of
Rain dirt mud anything that will slow
Them down diamond bearings are fast!

This is a great brand of bearings people. I highly recommend these because they are made in the USA, and are built with very accurate precision. I strongly recommend these bearings over the ceramic one because the steel balls in these bearings are smoother and much harder than the ceramic balls. Sure ceramic balls are lighter than steel balls but they are also much more brittle and rough than steel balls. The tolerances between the raceway and the ball is very minimal in Oust's bearings making it a very premium product. I highly recommend you get this bearing.
Redesigned cages for proper alignement makes these outroll all others!

These are really bad they don't last they are rusty and once it touches a bit of water ther you need knew ones

My friend has them and they are actually really good and fast
Sucks, I put them on like two hours ago and skated em 2 minutes abd starts making randomnoise and then all the sudden one bearing gets stuck and throws me off

33Motors 5
They are the fastest ever

Rush should be number 1 because I still have two pair and I had them for more than 4 months and they look like they are brand new rush forever. It should be at least top three
Rush Hybrid Bearings best for price... US $15

35Toy Machine Abec 7

Mate they are madd alright. They are smooth and fast I recommend them a lot to skaters

These are priced like redz, but much quieter, smoother, and faster. Plus they come in a best pez dispenser type thing that is awesome.

36FKD Sawblade

These are great bearings owned by silver trucks, so they are great quality. Fast and quiet and steezy.

Good for beginners low speed very durable and if your just now learning to do your tricks then in my opinion they are a good to use for skating
Good for begginers, durable





42Abec 7 LiteZpeed


44Sick Six Abec 9
Fastest and most durable bearing ever

45ABEC 9
Stepped inner race and rubber seals on both sides keep the dirt out. Extra deep ball grooves prevent sideways blow outs. Fast, smooth, strong!
