Well done Bones. I just got some new REDS and I love them. I don't think I will be riding on any other bearings.
— Dene Denman
I like these. They are good. Good for longboard. I go fast. I fall down. I cry. I buy some more.
— Andrew “ninja”
Thanks for making the greatest skateboard bearings ever!!! I ride with my friends and my bearings just keep on going, I don't know how you guys do it, but keep doing it. As long as I skate, I'll buy Bones Bearings!
Well done Bones. I have been riding for 2 years and I always looked away from Bones Swiss for how much they are. I won some in a competition and I will now say, I will be buying them again and again. They are the best ones ever. Very well done for having the best bearings.

I got some Bones Swiss Ceramics, as a longboarder I crave that high speed and never ending smoothness. The sheer sound of them is enough to make my hairs stand on end.
Race wise, nothing compares, on hill I did before i was getting + 10 Khm differences!
Thank you Bones!!!!!

— Jim “Da Bomb”
I have Bones REDS and Bones Swiss Originals. They go so fast and ride so smoothly and Bones Bearings are just the best.
I've been using Bones Bearings ever since I was a little kid, and I've only used 2 sets of Bones Bearings in 10 years. REDS and Super Swiss 6. Thanks Bones for getting me where I need to go.
— Chris “Bones” Morfin
The Bones REDS are the best. I just got a bunch of them, put them on, they just go forever... Bones RULE!!!
I got a set of Super Swiss 6 and they are amazing. They roll hecka well and they've lasted six months.
I bought a set of Bones Swiss and all I can say is WOW!!! Some friends say that they are a waste of money they weren't. They are pricey but way worth If you have $40 laying around, buy these bearings. They are truly amazing.
Super Swiss 6 are possibly the best bearings you can ever get.. super smooth, and what im looking for; fast as hell!!!!
I think Bones makes the best bearings ever and everybody who skates should have Bones Bearings. If you don't, go to the nearest skate shop right now and buy some. You won't be sorry you did.
Just wanted to thank you for making a great product. As a forty something longboarder, I ride your Ceramics exclusively on five of my six boards, only because you have not made a 10mm id ceramic yet. Any plans to? Or maybe a Ceramic Swiss 6. Longboarding has brought my daughter and myself closer, sort of a bonding thing, and your a part of that, she uses your ceramics too. At first her friends thought it was crazy to spend that much on the bearings, untill they experienced how smooth and quick the are. Now their parents were alittle upset because they wanted them. I explained to them that it was cheaper, due to the long lasting nature of the bearing and safer too, less likely to bind. needless to say their children got what the wanted. Thanks for your time,
— Mark Pierce
I love my Bones Swiss! they've always been good to me even if I through them with my board across the skatepark... well I've had them since Christmas 06... well even though that's only like 4 months that's like ten times better Luckys or any of that other crap.
— Cody “Vody Casquez” Vasquez
Bones Swiss Bearings are the best. I just got them today! I'm so damn happy. I love them!! They're way way faster than my fkds and hkds and they roll a lot farther!
Well to start Bones Bearings changed everything for me now not only do I go much faster and keep up that speed for a long time, But I have found that my pop shuvits are much more fluent and impressive to whoever is watching. Thnks 4 listening.
— Jonas Swenholt
Bones Bearings are the best. It seems like it will never break. Thanks Bones.
I have like 6 sets of REDS... never cleaned them at all and they still work good (cept the odd one or two.) I bought a pair because they were like $22.99 Canadian and I was impressed... I'm looking in to a set of the Bones double shields because we get a lot of dust up here in the summer.
— Rob “Hobo” Wahl
Yeah, Bones is good for us! I've bought 3 set of Bones REDS, One of Super Swiss 6 and it's the best bearings I've ever had. For long skating, I've never seen it before. Speed, clean, never had a problem... Best for us!
One year later and my Swiss Ceramics are still better than your bearings! Wanna race? Skate hard, fast, and by all means, free.
— Randy Smith
Bones are the shizzy man! Ive been using them since my first board which was 9 years ago. Keep 'em clean and they wont let you down.
— Jo Mo
I've had the same set of Bones Bearings for 2 years now, and they are still holding up, and just as fast as any other bearings at the skatepark. I clean them monthly and hardly ever actually lube them, but they still fly! Previous to these REDS, I had a set of Bones Swiss and those were a little faster, but you cant beat the price of REDS.
— J C
I got my first set of Bones Swiss about 5 years ago. I was so impressed with the performance, I never tried another bearing. My current set is the super 6 ball, and they roll sooo nice. I've had them for a year and all I so is clean them once a month. They roll great.
I used to have Luckys and was skating at the park, and I saw all these people getting way more speed than me with two less pushes. So I asked all of them individually what kind of bearings they were riding, and all of them answered REDS. well, that was like 6 months ago, and I got Reds then and they rock... like everyone in my neighborhood has REDS now!!!!! Rock on Bones!!!
— Dude Johnson
I don't have bones but I tried my friends and they ROCKED! Soon I will be buying bones!!!!
I had my Bones REDS for over a year and didn't really clean them that often and the were great till the thing that holds the bearings in broke in 2 spots. But I still used it till i got a chance to go get some Bones Swiss Bearings and they are great.
I started skating 2 years ago and the first bearings I ever had were Bones Swiss. They are awesome and all my friends skate them and we all have no complaints. The good thing about how Bones Swiss are skater rated is that abec ratings test the bearings at a speed that no one could ever go on a skateboard. Whenever I'm at the skate shop and someone is trying to buy bearings I tell them to get Bones. These bearings are amazing.
Started skating in earnest again 10 years ago. Always aspired to have Swiss as a kid and made sure this new setup was rocking them... 12 boards, two sets of trucks, God knows how many kingpins and many wheels later my bones are broke. I was shocked. The only original part (the heart) of my setup has given up... well one of the shields will no longer stay in! They have been used at least twice a week every week for ten years cleaned properly and speed creamed twice a year. I think it is time for a new set of Swiss 6... Hopefully in ten more years, at an age of 43 once the kid has left home, I may have enough cash for some Ceramics. Any one want to buy some second hand Swiss originals with one shield missing they still run as fast as any in the park! Seriously though these bearings lasted me 10 years. I'm no tech whipper-snapper; I ride hard, fast and burly. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING ELSE. P.S. As a parent I should point out the only lasted this long because I kept them clean.
OMG, I bought a pair of Lucky bearings abec 7 and in one day, no bull, the shield came off. Oh God, was I pissed. I hate Lucky bearings. Lucky should not be a bearing company. It should be a gun company so they can shoot themselves with guns. I love Bones REDs!!! Awesome Bones... WOOT WOOT.
— Ruben Bustos
Dude... I just got the Bones Super Swiss 6 Bearings and they're great... =) They go faster than my luckys and they still haven't even broke in. I can just imagine how fast I'll go when they break in.
Bones are the fastest bearings in the world! They have sweet control and precision.
— Kyle Johnson
I've been skating for almost 2 years now. That's when I got my first pro board. I had Lucky Abec 5s at first... and let me tell you... those things SUCKED! So about 3 months went by while I learned the basics on those, but then I broke them when I did a tiny little three stair. I had to get new bearings and saw reds, I immediately felt a change, they were faster and stronger than my luckys by a long shot. Since then I've had 3 sets of REDS, 1 set of Swiss Labyrinths, and my Super Swiss 6 are in the mail as we speak. My first set of REDS lasted me about 5 months... then I got lazy and bought a pack every 2 months for about six months. REDS are definitely awesome! The only thing I didn't like was that they needed to be kept clean... and living in Connecticut where it snows and they put salt on the roads a lot is pretty hard. Yet, the only problem I ever had was the retainer braking. I've now had my Bones Swiss Labyrinths for a little over three months, I have already broken one bearing but I threw a REDS in it and it works fine. (let me first tell you that I've only cleaned these bearing twice in the past 3 months... it's amazing that I've only broke 1 bearing!) I love Bones Bearings!! I do strongly recommend cleaning them whenever you can hear them rattle though. There really are little to no problems with Bones Bearings...especially the Swiss products. I can't wait until I get my Super Swiss 6 in next week.
Bones Bearings are incredible. I just bought a set of Swiss Ceramics, and man are they awesome! A little pricey, yes, but they are well worth the money; overall a good investment. Buy them today!
Ive had my Bones Bearings for two whole years and they still haven't broke on me. Thank God for Bones Swiss. whenever these babies break I'm going to get some Ceramics.
I got some Bones Swiss and they're bad ass. I also got grind king rims and I've never had to clean my bearings. I'm looking forward to getting some Super Swiss 6, but my Swiss are lasting for ever.
They are great! I can't believe how smooth they ride! My other ones sucked compared to these! I can't wait until the new ones come out! When people say how good these are, they're not kidding!
— Richard Perkins
I got the Super Swiss 6 and they're the best bearings I ever had. I had OG Swiss before these are a lot better. OMG. Stop procrastinating Bones Bearings. Make a Bones Ceramic Labyrinth Super Swiss 6 balls, yeah!
Bones are the only bearings I have ever tried and they're great. Right now I have the Super Swiss 6-ball bearings and they're the best. They're smooth and go super fast.
I'd break my Bones before I leave Bones.
Now that my Swiss Ceramic Labyrinth bearings are all worn in, I will now state that Bones Bearings are the FASTEST, STRONGEST, SMOOTHEST AND ABSOLUTE BEST SKATEBOARD BEARINGS ON THIS PLANET. Period.
My Bones Swiss are the best ever. I've had them for 5 months and they rock. my friend got some element swiss and they suck badly. They're really slow and they make funny noises. Well my bearings are the best on the block. They still rock even after I did a sweet tre of a 6 set.
Ceramic Labyrinths are the best bearings hands down! Imagine an even better one. I think it would have to be Super Swiss Ceramic 6 ball, in Labyrinth or regulars.
