Bones® Bearings Testimonials
The many leaders
How do you feel about your Bones® Bearings? Let us know!
I've skated every type of bearing from shortys black panthers, abec 7, to halos abec 3 and everything in between and none of them last as long or ride as smooth as Bones. I've been riding them since 2001.
Bones for life....

I am now skating Bones Reds and BONES Softcore Wheels and it feels like im riding a longboard! Also it goes faster than one to and its completely silent during the ride! I always race my friends with longboards and I always come first even though they have Reds to I think its best to have these Wheels and Reds and you could win any race! Also it could absorb an amazing amount of shock down stair steps! I was so surprised that bones made such soft and absorbent wheels when they usually make hard wheels! These aren't just wheels for bombing hills or filming, there for everything! If your wondering how fast I went with this combo, I easily went 20 mph going down a hill that really wasn't that steep! and it took my friends 5 mins to catch up with me and i was stopped to! Also he had fairly good bearing that were rush abec 7's but bones all the way! I highly recommend this combo!

Had a pair of stock ABEC 5's on my custom sector 9 for a while, wasn't happy with the spin time or smoothness of the ride, bought a brand new pair of Bones Swiss Labyrinth and put them on my skate, and I can't keep up with the skate speed now. So fast. If you want a pair of bearings that get you speed and a ultra quiet smooth ride, Bones Swiss for the win!
— Corey “Ghost”
I have been strongly committed to buying Bones for the past 6 years. You really live up to your word about selling a quality bearing and I cant begin to thank you enough.
— David Resch
I have been skating for 24 years and have only had to purchase 2 sets of Bones Bearings in my life. It the difference of skating on gravel or glass.
— Justin , Playland Skate Center
Got Bones REDS, and they skate faster then any I have owned. Thanks, Bones Bearings rule! And they came with a sticker! YAY!
— will clare
I love Bones bearings. I used them since I was 7 and now I'm almost 13. It's been almost 6 years and I still have my pair of Bones Swiss bearings. And I still remember how long it spinned the first day I got my Bones. 42 seconds I was amazed and happy with my bearings. After 9 months, no cleaning too, the bearings spinned even LONGER! 1:22 minute.And then after 5 years 1:56 minute and then right now i just spinned mine... 2:11 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend Bones Swiss Bearings to anybody beginners, intermediates, what so ever
BONES BEARING RULES
— kenny “ken y” nguyen
Bones Bearings is the best! Fuck the rest!
I had REDS bearings as my first pair and they were amazing!, I didn't think that bearings could get any better than that. Then bought a pair of Bones Swiss Bearings with BONES WHEELS and every skatepark I go to everyone wants to use my board because it's the smoothest and fastest board in the park. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER BRAND FOR BEARINGS!
I use Bones for my skateboard. They are great bearings, try 'em. You will LOVE them.
— Paul Rodriguez , Plan B
Bones are one of the best company of bearings I've ever used. They're fast, persistent, and give you a good ride. I have REDS right now, but I'm upgrading to Swiss tomorrow.
— Dima Snyder
My Bones Swiss bearings were rained on probably 3-4 times, still working like new without oiling!
— Greg “Greg” Steele
Been skating 23 years. Bones Swiss are still one of my all time faves. Smooth, fast, strong, and easy to maintain. But, they need a step on the inner race to keep dirt out better!
— Mark “"String"” Camp , GardenSk8
Today I have purchase Bones Swiss. My friend said that they were going to last like 3 months and others say that they last one year. I'm going to test them out!!!!!
— victor “lil vic” suarez
These bearings are sooo good, I had REDS and I have the Swiss Originals right now. When I had my REDS I skated in the worst places ever. I would do a gap and land in a sand or dirt pit, and I always skated in the rain. They still held up! It took 2 months of that sh** for anything to happen! and my Swiss are soo fast!!! I have BONES WHEELS too... they are awesome. Bones kicks ass!!!!!!
Bones is all I try to skate. The performance is the best I've rode.
— Alex “Zander” Luoma
I absolutely love your bearings. I have REDS right now but I hope to get Swiss Super 6. I love skating.
— Tony “Vallely” Giovannetti
I bought a set of Bones Swiss Bearings in 1991. In that time, many things have changed in skateboarding. I've been through countless decks, many sets of wheels, and a few pairs of trucks but I have the same bearings!!! BONES BEARINGS ARE THE BEST!
— Brian Blancho
When I first started skating in the late 80's people never really cared what bearings they had-from my experience It was whatever the local skate shop stocked,and my local only had nachi or nsk. Now however there are hundreds of different skate bearings companies all claiming to be the best. Bones reds were the first bones bearings I had and that was when I started skating again and these seemed faster than the others I had and were cheap too. I couldn't resist Bones Swiss and have two decks now with Swiss's on them. Whenever they slow down I clean them in the bones bearing cleaner and apply speed cream. I haven't cleaned them in 9 months now and they're still fast as anything. There's been a lot of talk in OZ about modus bearings and it seems many of the younger lads are buying them, so I tried a set. What I found as that these aren't even as good as the reds let alone the Swiss's. I would like to try the Super Swiss 6 next and would love ceramics but their price is super $ out here in OZ. I'm sticking with the Bones and all these younger lads that talk about abec and the many other brands just don't know what there talking about.....EVERY SKATER SHOULD TRY BONES SWISS and if you clean them they will last ages.
— Alan “Al”
I love Bones. I had a pair of REDS... love them. I prefer them if you're a beginner but I just got a pair of Super Swiss 6. It rides smooth and fast. They last long too. I clean mine out about every 6 months. I cant wait till I can get the ceramics. Skating rocks!!!!!!!!!
— brendyn “bam” tran
Lance I'd back!!!! Yeah!! Get the brigade back together.
— Stan “Stadler” Adler Jr.
I got a set of Bones REDS when skated to Morocco last year from London even through days when it pissed it down with rain, they kept going, I've even still got them in my setup! I knew they were good before I left, but if they're still good after more than 2000 miles, you cant can't beat that. If you found a deck that wouldn't break or a pair of shoes that wouldn't get torn up, you'd pay out the extra cash for it too.
I have had my Swiss Bones since '93 (no cleanings) and they still rule. My Swiss Bones help me find Animal Chin immediately every time I skate!
Bones kick ASS. I take care of my Bones REDS and spin for 2 minutes straight. I use 90% pure alcohol to clean my bearings.
— Chris “Dr.Tran”
The only bearings I have used are Bones and they are freakin awesome. They are fast and last 4 ever.
— aurelio “taco”
I have been skating Bones REDS all the time I have been skating. REDS skate so smooth and so fast I am looking forward to be skating the Ceramic Swiss Bearings.

I just got Bones Swiss Super 6 on my new complete about an hour an hour ago and there so fast!!!!!!!! These bearings are the best bearings I have ever had. Period.
I've been skating for 21 years on street, ramps, ditches, and parks. I've used other ABEC rated bearings like German bearings over the years, but Swiss Bones and REDS will always outlast the others.
Hey, I have bought 7 sets of Bones Swiss Ceramics in my skateboard career. They are the best bearings ever. If you are into pool skating, BUY THESE. If you skate a lot of street, get the swiss originals. I HIGHLY recommend these to everyone who has the opportunity to try them. I will never ride anything else.
I have had Bones Reds bearings since the start. They are definitely high-performance bearings. Bones hasn't disappointed me.
— Bobby Mekdara
I have tried all of your bearings except Swiss Ceramic, and I'm eager to own a set, although S.S.I. does't pay as much as pro-skateboarder salaries.
— Edward “Bobby” Honore III , N/A
My name is Tanner. I am 11 years old. I have a pair of Super Swiss 6. They are the best bearings I ever had.
— Tanner Koutz
The best bearings ever!!! I have used a single set of Bones Swiss weekly for over 7 years Jam Skating. I clean them every 4-6 months and they are still like new. Can't wait to try the new swiss!
— Tyler “TheHarsh” Harshman
Right now I have the almost ABEC 5 bearings (they came with my complete). I am getting a new board and am positive on getting Bones Swiss 6 after all of the amazing test videos I've seen and fantastic feedback they always get. Thank you bones for making affordable bearings that last long and are ultra fast!
I LOVE BONES SWISS!
— Alexander “Bigal” Johns
Uso Bones Berings porque são os melhores! Sua qualidade e durabilidade é excelente. A marca esta de parabéns!!!
— Guilherme Quiterio
I started skating in the late 80's. Back then I trusted your Swiss bearings because they were the best. Now I'm 30 years old. My 12 year old son just started skating and I wanted to pick it back up to spend time with him. I was delighted to find that the local skate shop still had one product I was familiar with...Bones Swiss Bearings. I bought a set and was amazed that they feel and work just as good as they did 20 years ago. Keep up the good work.

Hi. My name is Kyle. I'm 15 and have been skating for about 4 years. I have skated Bones Bearings since day one and I love them. They're the best ever.
My friend bought some REDS for my longboard when my stock ones rusted. They are very fast, incredibly cheap, and they last quite a while. I have been using mine for 3 months and have only cleaned them once. Their performance hasn't dropped at all. They are a very inexpensive, very fast, and very reliable bearing. I would suggest this to any skater.
I like old school skating way better then flip tricks and stuff so I like to bomb hills. Well I would go fast down hills but slow on flat than some guy gave me his old really old Bones and they were so great. So then I thought if these are old broken in, new ones must be good, so I bought some Swiss Six and I never thought bearings could go faster. Kudos Bones
— Robert “Jay” Alba , Carmelita Skate Team
I CANT EVEN BOMB HILLS ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY GO SO FAST!!!! im serious if you want to have to kick DOWN a hill go buy yourself some ABEC rated metal disks...
— dwayne “primestick”
I've been working in a skateshop for the past 3 1/2 to 4 years and skating for about 8. In that amount of time I have tried 98% of all the bearings we carry, with exception of generic low quality bearings. I have sold more bones bearings and personally skated more bones branded bearings than anything else in this shop. Money talks and bullshit walks.
— Dusty Landers , New Generation Skateshop
I've had my Reds for about 3 months now, I just started to skate again after a very long 7 year break. These bearings have to be the only bearings (as well as anything else that Bones will manufacture) that I will continue to use. My previous bearings I have remember using were always Quickies, I don't know why but those were the worse bearings to use the price fools you, Reds are cheap, good quality and does not fool you.
