Bones Reds, Swiss and Ceramics
It’s the year 1983. George Powell founds the most influential bearing brand in the skateboard world: Bones Bearings. Bones Bearings were the most important skateboard bearings at that time and still are to this very day! Bones Reds and Swiss bearings are the number one choice among pros. Their skate team has included a team of A-List skate celebrities for decades: Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Sean Malto, Ishod Wair, Jamie Thomas, Mark Suciu, Brandon Westgate and Lance Mountain are just a handful of names that skate for Bones Bearings.
Bones Bearings: Skate Rated and Skater-Approved
Bones Bearings are not industry-grade bearings that randomly happen to function on a skateboard. They’re bearings that were specifically designed for skateboarding performance. That’s why Bones rejects industrial ABEC ratings (“not specific enough”) in favor of their own Skate Rated™ system. All “skate rated” bearings from Bones Swiss to Bones Red are way more abrasion-resistant, smoother and faster than their competition could ever hope to be. They’re also easy to clean. Cleaning your bearings also guarantees them longer durability and functionality. Detailed information on how to properly clean your Bones Bearings products can be found in our Skateboard Wiki online.
Bones Bearings - History in the Making!
Bones is serious about constantly improving their already superb product range, and their willingness throughout the past thirty years to adapt to the needs of skaters and test out new methods has led to their bearings becoming the absolute standard in skateboarding. Whether pro or amateur, every skater that rides Bones once will be instantly hooked. Their huge selection of different bearings and various accessories are first-class, top-quality products for a fair price.
