Top Ten Best Skateboard Bearings

The Top Ten

1 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

2 Reds

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

3 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. - DManno3

Dude these are some fast bearings - dudewheresmyskatie

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!

4 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

5 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!

6 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

7 MiniLogo

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

8 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.

9 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 - lnvadergir

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

10 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

11 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?

12 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!

13 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

14 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

15 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

16 Juju

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

17 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

18 Abec-1

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!

19 FKD

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."

20 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

21 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

22 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

23 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. - SweetJayB

The fastest among all

So stylish. Super fast and smooth. - lbs53926

Totally the best! - Pepe05

24 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

25 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

26 Bronson Speed Co. G3

So far so good. The design of bearings have not changed a whole lot in the last 20 years but bronson changed a lot I can appreciate that. I feel like they are just as good as my Swiss bones at half the price. I have only them for a couple months but they are holding up good so far. They have jaws and Ben Rayburn riding them and they beat the hell out of them, they work for them so I am sure they will last me a long time.

Used the bronson g2 and they worked well. Lasted over a year... Cheap also, they spin fast. Just put g3's on... seem to be as good. Only been a couple weeks but I'm a big guy and I'm moving quick on em. Like the price

Raws with tungsten raceway design and no caps are the fastest and longest spinning bearing.

I have them they work really good they go for pretty long time

27 Rush Bombers

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

I love my rush bombers there great

Awesome I've had them for 2 years

Great bearings if you plan to put new Bombers in every year.
Very cheap, but cleaning them doesn't work. Just replace them after winter passes.

28 Andale

Its a new bearing company made by paul rodriguez and joey brezinski I have the andale swiss they are super fast and smooth lots of pros ride for them try them they come in abec 5,7, swiss

Amazing fast smooth and all around amazing bearings for cheap these should be number one only reason they ain't is cause they new

Andale Swiss is faster than bones and gives a smoother ride!

The reason they have put them so low is because know body knows them. They are way better that my bones swiss.

29 Positiv

Precision double-rubber shielded chromium steel bearings lubricated with Bones Speed Cream - jason94

30 Oust

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.

OUST is the little known secret among the serious downhill pro-riders and competitors. There's a reason for this, there's none finer. Jumping on your board with these feel like you're going downhill on a sled on ice. Whether you run with the 5's, 7's or 9's doesn't matter. Buy the set that matches your specific style or an all-around bearing. Proudly made in the USA too. Warning: You'll never look at another bearing again. Just get 'em and be worry free as you'll unquestionably will have the industry's best.

How is this not number 1 because this is the best bearing ever 10000000 times better than all the other bearing last very long and go really fast

I had oust bearings for about 2 years (moc 9 airr) and they spin and accelerate allot more and many times quicker than my Bones Swiss Ceramics (grey shields). I have Bones Swiss Ceramics for 2 and a half years but 2 of them busted during street skateboarding.

31 ABEC 5

I bought ABEC 5 pig bearings and they are better than bones reds but cost $50 still worth it though!

I Bought a skateboard online it is DGK and it comes with grizzly griptape, ABEC 5 BEARINGS and goth wheels did I get a good deal for 52.99$ and free shipping.

ABEC 5 aree dope, smooth and fast skating!

32 Indy 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.

There the best and better then modus 7

33 DISCO Bearings Hybrid

Sick Aussie company. 6 regular balls and 1 self cleaning ceramic. Heaps cheaper than full ceramic ball bearings with a lot of the advantages!

Australian company doing some really rad things! These DSCO Hybrids are fast self cleaning bearings

Fastest bearings I've ever had

34 World Industry Bearings

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

I had them they rust fast

35 SpeedDaemons

Been skating the abec 5 ones for 2 months now. Very smooth. I like them

This is awesome bearings I have been skating with thEm over 3years now thEiR awesome

I think is speed demons bearings

3 days in. They are so smooth.

36 Modus 7

These bearings are so underrated! Best bearings I have used so far! I lot better than bones reds and bones super reds. I had bones reds before I got these and there was a huge difference between them. Modus were a lot faster and smoother! Will stick to Modus from now on

they are better than modus 5 because they are the next level up and there the third fastest and that is a fact there was a comp

These bearings are sick! They go so fast and so smooth. Modus are a lot better than Andale Abec 7 and Bones reds. Give them a try guys!

37 Synopsis Ceramics
38 Chocolate

Amazing bearings, good for the price too. Yet to disappoint me

There very good, I have had them for four years already and the go smooth, their very nice. 😙

39 Diamond 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!

Just keep them clean

40 Rush

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

41 Independent Black

I weight 312lbs and these roll like lightning!

Roll fast last forever, I've never had to do maintmence. As fast as bones swiss maybe faster but for 25$

This Bearrings rolls fine and Smooth awesome speed on bowls and Half pipes!

Lots of maintainance!

42 Flip HKD ABEC 7

The best bearing

43 Reflex

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

44 Hubba

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

45 ABEC 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!

46 Andale Bearings

Why are these last I had them for 2 years now and they still run fast. Have you ever seen Chris chann skate and he rides these.

47 Bronson

They are the worlds fastest bearing in the world look it up you will be shocked

Worlds slowest bearing in the worlds look it's up mayn!

The best bearings iv ever had highly worth the money get the g3 there better than g2

Yeah broken on 2weeks

48 Independent

Good for the price. They are quick out of the box I can not tell much difference between them and my bones swiss. It used to be bones are what everything was compared to but now lots of good bearings for a lot cheaper that are just as fast. Independent 7's, bronson speed bearings are just as good as the bones swiss and I can save money to replace decks and wheels instead of a new set of bearings.

I love these bearings. The retainer is made from a different material so it lasts so much longer. They are easy to clean, they feel the same as bones reds, takes impact, and feels so crispy. I highly recommend these bearings for everyone.

Faster than the abec 7 black dragon, I recommend it for every cruiser

Best in price and quality!

49 Motors 5

They are the fastest ever

50 Toy 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.

What are you talking about these are terrible

Why are Toy Machines at 35?
They are cheap and good bearings and they break in fast
Mine spin for 4 minutes and 27 second after a couple hours of skateboarding!
Plus they come in a pez dispencer so that's sick
Get Toy Machines!
