How do you feel about your Bones® Bearings? Let us know!
i <3 swiss 6s. i love watching people's faces when i blast thru traffic on a skateboard =) the only thing that might be better is if you guys made the labyrinth shields for the 6s. keep em blue if you ever decide to do that! ooh or purple! Have you tested a swiss 5 bearing? would it have an even higher top speed?
I got Bones REDS bearings not long ago from psc and they are the best bearings I've ever ridden, there easy to mantain, I LIKE THEM. GET BONES!!
— matthew “matty”
Bones Swiss are the best bearings ever, period. And Bones Reds are the best lower-price bearings. That's all that needs to be said.
I just got a set of Super Swiss 6 and they fly like crazy! The momentum of the six larger balls carries the speed further and longer than any other bearings I've skated! Anybody who has skated bones knows just how fast and long lasting they are!!!! Thanks Bones and keep working hard! Bones for life!!!!
Best bearings to skate with, whether your a season pro or just starting out fresh. Bones won't fail.
Bones Swiss Bearings are great. So smooth and go real fast, keep 'em coming!
— Blake “OHMYGOD” , Nuclear Skateboards and Drop In Clothing
Swiss bones are the best! They're durable and accelerate much faster then other bearings.
I love these bearings! Even though they are more expensive than the other bearings I have to say you get more than your money's worth! They are definitely the fastest bearings I've ever used and they last a long time. Everyone I know who uses Bones Swiss Bearings absolutely falls in love with them! Keep up the good work guys at Bones Bearings.
— Frankie Romo
Bones are awesome. I don't have a lot of money so Reds are perfect priced bearings but they seem like they would be more but they're the best bearings whether you're racing, longboarding, or just normal street or vert... a great deal for a great price. Thanks Bones!!

Bones Bearings Owns!
Being from Ireland, the landscape here is a very challenging one. Especially for skateboard hardware. The unforgiving bad pavements and dirty streets can wreak havoc on bearing and many a pair have been destroyed, but the one set of bearings that lasted and continue to 4 years after I bought them are my Bones REDS.
Thanks for making a great bearing.
— Conor “shifty” Bradley
There's just something about REDS that gets me.... why oh why are they better then any bearings in this world? I love what you guys do.
— Judas “DripRap” Valentine
Let me 1st start by saying that "Swiss Bones aren't just bearings....they're a Life-style!" I've been skating for 14 years and i've ridden every kind of bearing imaginable, frum 'Quickies' to 'Black Panthers' Swiss and even different variations of Ceramics... but when u decide to finally grow-up! and mature... Move on over to the big leagues and get ANYTHING made by 'Bones'. They are absolutly blood in, blood out trustworthy bearings, very strong, very fast, and above all VERY SMOOTH. When u upgrade to any variation above Reds, it changes your ENTIRE skate...and thats no bullshit. U can't put bones in a category with ABEC's...It's like night and day, Jekyl and Hyde. And any company who thinks their brand is better than bones, you belong in an asylum!
And congradulations to Chris Haslam for joining the Bones Team...or so i've heard. Anyways lemme just wrap this up by sayin that iam 25 now and I will skate Swiss Bones till i'm 75. I Cannot wait till I get my New Swiss Ceramics in the mail... my God i bet they're a MASTERPIECE, a very work of ART that belongs in a gallery.
— Josh “Nicholas” Fahey , SkateBoston
I havent skated that long, but I've had my share of bad setups. A few months ago I got Bones Swiss, and im never going back
I aint much of a writer. I spent most of my school years downtown on a board... so here it is...I am 25 Years of age and I got my first skate board from my father when i was 5 years old and this is the only thing i thank him for, he never really was much of a father but he did teach me to skate. And ever since i got my first board i have always had Bones Bearings. Once I moved up to the kind of skateboard we use now instead of the huge old school board i learned on I got my set of Reds. And still to this day I will not ride anything else.. See I love to pull Sick block long manuals outta no where. And I wouldnt be able to do it with out REDS. And to tell you the truth the reason I came on your web site today was to look for a good picture of the REDS Dragon to get tattooed on me... but ya thats about all I have to say....I Love your REDS and I want to brand my body for ever with your dragon.
— Josh “Mevo” Mulvihill
You guys have the f**king best bearings.
— cameron tiegs
I had some ABEC 5 element bearings in my skateboard, and I heard so much about Bones Swiss, so I decided to buy some on my way home. They are so smooth and so fast you won't believe them till you buy them!
— Jordan “SkateKid” Almond
Bones Swiss are the best, thanks for making a high quality bearing that anyone can afford.
— Fidel Minor
Since I got to college I started riding my longboard everywhere. with the 6 ball Super Swiss on my board I go faster and longer than all my friends. I strongly recommend anyone who is serious about speed to check these out!
— Kevin “Waltz”
I just got some bone swisses to replace my crapped out ones. My board rides way smoother than anything i have ridden before. Its crazy smooth. If you don't have bone swiss bearings, you need to get them now! They are epic smooth guys. It's incredible.
I have had the same set of black Swiss Bones since 1996 and I still ride on them everyday. Been through many boards and trucks but the bearings always stay the same. Other bearings I have had do not come close this kind of performance. I wouldn't buy bearings made by anyone else.
— Mike “Mohern”
I've been skating Bones Swiss Labyrinth bearings for almost 3 years now, and I'm never going to use another brand for as long as I continue skating. From the moment you start to roll you immediately know that you're skating Bones. These are hands down the best bearings out there, and I would HIGHLY recommend them.
— Anthony Castillo
what everyone else said was true! REDS rock my skate world
I've had my set of Bones Swiss bearings for about 8 years now, and they've been put threw hell and back and they still work well. Considering how old these bearings are now I haven't minded using these out in the rain (when you're running late and have to get to class, I don't care what the weather is like outside). So even after using these in the rain for the past year, they still work well; once in a while a couple of them seized up, but after some thorough cleaning they continue to work well again.
I highly recommend this bearings, they are extremely durable and long lasting considering they've been abused. If you want these things to last even longer, I recommend researching how to properly clean bearings (I was a beginner and so I didn't know how to clean them properly; even after being partially rusted from leaving them sitting in isopropyl rubbing alcohol when I first tried to clean them, they still lasted for 8 years).
I myself plan on finally picking up a new set and letting my abused set rest in peace. They may cost a bit more than the other cheaper quality brands, but Bones Swiss bearings are really well worth the price.
— Brian Ernst
I bought a set of bones super swiss 6 bearings on May 24, 2008. As I am righting this it is March 31, 2009. That is almost a year after I bought them and they ride just as good as the day I bought them. This year I will buy a new complete without bearings because these are still in excellent condition. Thanks Bones!
— Shane “Magoo” Solar
I have Bones Swiss bearings, I think they rock the world man! Bones Reds are really good too, but I think Bones Swiss bearings are the best in the world.
— Danny “Asian Thunder” Hwang
Skateboarding has been around for over 30 years. And i've only been around for 20. I am an avid skateboarder and skateboarding is the love of my life.I seriously dont know where i would be if it wasn't for skateboarding. Sometimes i look at people who dont skate and i wonder how they do it. How can you not skate? Ever since i first step'd foot on a board i was hooked and i couldn't stop and falling down only made me want to get back up and do it again. I jus wanted to tell you how much i appreciate your company and everything it does for skateboarding. I truely belive that skateboarding can really help people by boosting the confidence inside themselves, showing them that if you just keep at it, you will get it. Everytime i see anyone skating exspeacilly little kids, i have to stop and talk to them, its just that connection that i think ALL skateboarders have, no matter what race, sex, sexual orientation, religon....no matter wut makes us all different if you skate you skate and we are all a big family and i LOVE to watch it grow.
why walk when you can roll?
Thanks for everything,
(PS: Power to the skaters)
— Jordan “Jordie” Brooks
I bought my first set of Bones Swiss 7 years ago, and the served me amazingly, ive only needed replace them once since then.
Fastest, smoothest, longest lasting bearings on the market.
I work in a skate shop and people think im just trying to get them to spend more by buying Bones Swiss but honestly, they are the best value for money you will find, by a long long way!
Invest in the best!
I skate Bones REDS Bearings. Super fast. THANKS BONES BEARINGS!
Bones are superb!!!! I have a set of Super Swiss 6 and I fell in love with them!!!! I like the Super Swiss 6 cuz they are very easy to clean and to put back, unlike the Reds. I had a hard time putting them back together after i was down cleaning them for a friend. I guess the reason why is becasue they have 7 balls in them and the inner race has a bigger gap between the edge of the inner race to the dip where the balls roll on.
— fletcher “fletcher” jenkins
I bought REDS cause everyone says they're super fast and dude what the cheez they are awesome yo. But next fool I'm getting some Swiss Ceramics, 100 bucks but worth it!!!!
— richard “WOBS”
Bones Bearings are so fast. Reds were the first ones I used cuz my friend told me that they were really low priced and really fast. since I did not know much about anything related to skating, I tried em out. and I was very impressed. I have kept with them ever since I started skating and always will.
Bones are the frickin best bearings u can get.
I don't know which bearings are faster between the Labyrinth, Super Swiss, or the Original Swiss.
I skated in the rain and the next day they squeaked a bit but once the squeaking stopped, they worked as good as the had before.
Bones Bearings are the best bearing ever.
There's life before Bones, and life after. Smoothest bearings out there.
— Bob “Sex Machine” M.
Bones Bearings are the best. I have REDS and they are awesome. When they get dirty I used those step and works good. NUMBER 1 this.
Bones are awesome I've only had REDS and they are so fast and smooth.
Well I've been skateboarding for about 3 years now and I'm pretty good and I need good bearings so I got some and have been skating Bones Bearings for 2 year's now and I've had Bones REDS and love them. They're fast and long lasting and that's what I need and I have had some other bearings but not as good as the best bearings ever made... Bones Bearings
— aaron “aaron” sly
I look around and see people skating bearings that sound like jet engines, quite frankly, and I wonder if these dudes know that there exists a bearing that is entirely like heaven immersed in hot butter. Bones bearings make riding a skateboard like there is zero friction. You literally have to get used to riding your board because it becomes so dynamically different and very fast (not to mention quiet). The metals used in these bearings are patently better than other brands, and they clearly outlast any other bearing by far. I highly recommend the labyrinth or the ceramic. If you ride deep bowls and gyration is your thing, don't wear yourself out on low cost compromise bearings. I like to hit the coping consistently, longer, and then some without crapping out. Hey, I may look like a caveman, but I certainly know what makes me rock; and these bearings roll.
— Larry “Larz” Healey
Bones are the way to go. I tried alot of bearings but Bones are the best and fastest. I recommend them to any skater.
— romeo “SbHstomper18” diaz
All other bearings suk, Bones are the elite!!! Bones are the s**t, f**k the competition.
— billy “pablo sanchez” bianco
I love Bones REDS... always have... always will! Keep doing what you guys do so well, make excellent bearings. THANK YOU.
— scott “scotty” machold
I have been skating REDS for a few years now, and they're great. They hold up, and stay fast longer than any other low cost bearing I've rode, thanks for everything guys! Keep it up.
