Top Ten Best Skateboard Bearings

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.

I've had mine for 10! years now, can you believe it! They still run magically smooth, friction less and fast. I completely dissemble and clean 2-3 times a year, using white benzene for metal/ceramic parts and just soap, water and toothbrush for shields and plastic ring inside. 1 drop of bones oil when I'm done. I street skate, streets, concrete parks and indoors. Been skating for around 30 years now, still going strong, used to be pro-ish for about 10 years (got absolutely all the stuff I wanted and got sent to every comp around and did demos regularly) so when it comes to equipment my standards are set very high. I don't waste my time on anything that wouldn't make me perform the best I can, especially in my older days now when I cherish every skate year added. I've got money now, I wouldn't waste time on crap.
I used to change bearings every other month, so these were an investment that has saved me countless euros. I haven't seen any reason in buying anything else since. I take ...more


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!

You can pop out the inner racer on a truck axel with the nut on... I lot like popping out a bear

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

Get reds. They last longer and will do you very good in the mean time because they roll extremely fast and stay that way for years on end without special care. You can make them even better by getting bones speed cream and put it on every month and they will be like the best bearings you ever had. Did I also mention that they are the cheapest bones bearings. $15.99 for a 8 set of bones reds. Compared to Bones Swiss Ceramics which are over $100. Ya and bones reds are second on this list. Do you see. Get the 2nd best bearings in the world for $15 or get the best which aren't a big difference from reds and pay $110. GET THEM

China Bone Reds

Although they aren't Swiss, the difference is that the Bones Swiss last longer for like 3 years. China Bones Reds = 8 yrs.

Dude these are some fast bearings

Fast, cheap, strong, they are sick

I've got the reds and the are awesome they should be the best in the world as they last for a long time and are very fast smooth and strong!

Bones Swiss Labyrinth

A cheaper version of the ceramics

I have 2 pairs of these and the both roll SUPER fast and spin for like a minute to a minute and a half on like 30 minutes of ride time they are well worth the price and I would strongly recommend them

They're great and worth the price!

I have em on my element board with krux trucks and I can't complain they supply what I demand smoothness in the ride and the right amount of speed given the fact mines broke in very quickly unlike other bearings

Rush 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.

If you get the weather proof versions, you're set! All you would have to do is lubricate them every so often, and they last for ages! Love mine and they roll fast!

Bones Swiss

Bones Swiss are great guys. You should try it!

They are what set the bench mark in bearings but are a little on the high side price wise. You can get bronson speed or Independent 7's for half the price and be just as happy

If you clean and lube them with a 1/4 pound of force to spin them. The spin for 1.56 minutes only thing better Bones Swiss at 2.19

I have bones Swiss and been skating then for almost 2 years


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.

Best thing that's not ceramic, costs less than plain reds. Really fast, smooth ride, and they last forever

I think these are better than reds I have both

MY mini-logo spin around long while like 2 or 3 minutes I love these bearings I have a girl skateboard they go fast too same as reds I recommend using these bearings

Bones Reds Ceramic

Best bearings I've ever had. Close to the bones Swiss ceramics but you don't have to drop a hundred twenty close to the bones Swiss ceramics but you don't have to drop $120 for them. If you look online you can get a set for $40. Mine are now two years old just cleaned them and they spin for 2 minutes. Really fast and self polishing. Highly recommended. Get them.

I bought bones reds ceramics, they are amazing, they spin to 3 min and more!

Amazing bearings I have these and I was so glad I got them!

I think this is the best I enjoy this bearing a lot.

Lucky Bearings

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

These bearings suck. Just a little dirt and they're dead. Shields are not removable so you can't clean them very well. Get Reds instead. Cheap, reliable and fast.

if you have just started skating get lucky bearings there the best fastest I've had anyway I love them

The abec 5 are pretty cheap are work great,
I am looking forward to trying to abec 7.
Bones swiss ceramics are best - but way to expensive

Toy Machine 10

I've only had them once but they are awesome these are definitely good bearings

Very good bearings. They go head to head with the best ceramic bearings but don't cost as much. They go super fast and last long

Greats bearings, very fast

Great bearings. they last a while and have a wicked freespin and they go as fast as bones super reds.

The Contenders

Shake 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.

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

They are good. Especially for big drops. Its exactly what they advertise. These would probably be my choice if I was buying bearings. Very good. Lizard Kings was right! These are crispy.

I have reds and I feel like I gotta clean them every two days or so plus some seem to be better than other shouldn't they all be the same?

Element Juice

Bought a set 6 years ago, didn't skate at all for 2 of them and had my board go through quite a bit of water. Still roll smooth and buttery, as though they were new.

Far by the best ones

Dude these spun for 4 minutes after an hour of skating!

Bones Super Swiss 6

These bearing roll forever! They go super super fast don't make any noise. My only issue is now I barely have to kick around campus so I feel like I'm getting no exercis

Favorite bearings so far lasts way longer than China reds and are faster

Best bang for your $$$

They at the best

Black Panther

Black Panther bearings are super! They're great and the price makes them even better! The ceramics cost about as much as the Bones Swiss. So go get a set right now.

These Bearing Are The Smoothes I Ever Had And I Have 10 Skateboard

Black panthers are awesome they are hella fast they kept going for 5 minutes after thirty minutes of skating I truly love these bearings

Smoothest bearings ever, I got swiss, and abec 7s abec 7s are a good price easy to clean, and roll SUPER fast, I love THEM

Bones 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

Just got these bearing and I have to say, they are amazing. If you are willing to spend the money, get the ceramics. But these are a close second. All over I love these bearings


Juju blessed silver bearings are amazing. Much better than bones reds in my opinion. Also the packaging is high quality and super satisfying to open.

That's what's up

They are great

I think thesis should be 4-7

Spit 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.

I have skated spit fire my whole life. I had them as my first set and loved them

SPITFIRE ARE THE BEST I got my pair and already loved it the first run they are the best!

Sick bearing just getting faster and faster


They suck same crap on a Walmart board except slower Walmart is a bec 3

The best bearings in the world. It spun so speedy it caught on fire

Just cannot believe how fast I went. Just. Amazing.

I ain't never felt no speed like this before yo!


I got these a long time ago when they came in a kit with its own oil in a metal case, and they lasted for more than 3 years being beat up constantly and only cleaned them twice in that time. There are faster and smoother bearings out there, but these still got better quality and stand a beating much better than black panthers and China reds (which are still good bearings in my opinion.

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.

FAST is all I can say, they good

Really fast and even if they get water in them they are nonstop... I especialy like the "Gold series signature Bearings."

Bones Reds

These bearings are amazing. You can hardly hear them and they spin for a long time. This one should be number 1 because bones swiss ceramics stink.

This should be on top because it is good and affordable so anyone can have these good and affordable bearings

These are coming second whoever posted this is a dumbass

Best bearings for amateur skaters

Abec 7

These bearings are pretty good, they take some riding time, but then, they are fast, man! They last a long time, and are good price, too! Get ABEC 7!

Beast! And super good price!

I have abec 7s their are so good

They're very fast and smooth once you break them in

Spitfire Cheapshots

They're pretty good for a cheap price. Me and my friend had the same bearings. His spitfire rolls better than mine I don't know how but, they're worth the price.

They are very good for cheap price

There so fast and smothe these and bones reds are the fastest barrings in the world

Heady Shake

I have been professionally engaged in skateboarding for 12 years. I didn't see steeper bearings. Heady Shake is fantastically fast. They are also very strong, I almost don't get out of skateparks. My advice to you - want to get true pleasure from skating - choose Heady Shake.

The fastest among all

So stylish. Super fast and smooth.

Totally the best!

Rush Abec 7

Ok bearings, go for Rush ABEC 9 or Reds

Ok. Got my board a few years ago. Almost 14 and started into boarding hard. These are pretty good for the price. I recommend to all beginners because they roll well... Decent. There's lots of bumpy riding on my road that's dirty and rocky but helps my balance a lot. Amazing on the 'routes' one right by my house and they're pretty Smooth. There are better but these are almost half redz and do pretty well.

They really made me fall over and broke with in a second of use very good bones swiss ceramic lasted 0.8 seconds recomend to scooter kids anndalleee

Andale Swiss

They are the only bearings that are worth the high price

These are super fast and cheap for Swiss bearings

Best bearings I've ever used

Worst bearings ever used
