How do you feel about your Bones® Bearings? Let us know!
I've had every kind of bearings you could think of then I bought some REDS, those were great, and then I bought some Swiss Ceramics and I couldn't believe how good they were. I ollied a 13 stair the first day I got em.
OMG, I've had my Bones Swiss, and they are the best, I don't know what you guys are doing to make them awesome but keep doing it. My best friend was looking to buy new bearings, I immediately pointed to the Bones REDS. Rock on Bones.
I bought the Super Swiss 6's and there were the best I've ridden but then I won a bet and decided to buy a complete. I got REDS and the 3rd week I had them a bearing broke into pieces. So I just stuck too the Swiss's and they are the best out there.
The only bearings me and my friends use. Anything else just wouldn't cut it. Thanks once again for making such a great product.

I bought Super Swiss 6 and they are totally worth the money. It is worth every penny I'd pay 100 dollars for these bearings but I'm lucky I don't have to.
I've tried black panthers, luckys, speed demons and lots and lots of bearings and my REDS are better then all of them. And my better board has Super Swiss 6 and I've never ridden a smoother faster bearing that last so long!
Bones Bearings are the best. The REDS are cost efficient. Look no where else for bearings.

I read their little spew about the Ceramics and was a little skeptical. I got them and was asked to enter a armature competition well I slapped those bearings in and and skated better than I ever have before.
I tried many other bearings and most of the time the seal ring would crack.I decided to try Bones Swiss Original and put them to the test. What I liked most about them was the smooth fast quiet roll and the price is just right. I'm thinking of trying Super Swiss 6 and Ceramics in the future.
I got REDS a year and a half ago and they are still as fast and as good as when I got them. Get REDS! They are fast and don't break. I jumped a few stairs with them and they still work.

BRING THEM ON!!! I ride Bones in my deck and just got my girlfriend some Super Swiss 6 for her blades... what can I say but these are the best bearings in the world! Faster, smoother and longer lasting than anything we have ever ridden. Total pleasure to have them! Tell all the crew at the local bowl in the toe end of the UK to get them, after they have a blast on my deck, they all get converted!
— Julian Tredinnick
REDS are awesome. I'm on my 4th pair. These are seriously the best ever. These bearings are twice as fast and half the cost of Pig Ceramics. Best bearings ever.

I know I already posted a few pages back, but at the end of that post, i wrote that i was getting a speedboard with Super Swiss 6's by the end of the year and oh my God, they are insane! Not that the 83mm flywheels aren't helping, but jeez, I did one push, cruisin with one of my friends, and he had to do at least 7 to catch up. And he's ridin REDS! My bro got a carving board running swiss, and he's happy. He would have gotten SS6, but i got the last set in stock...bwa hah ha! when my Reds die on my shortboard (which could take a while...and I do mean a while) I'll get those Labyrinths, cause I hate cleaning my bearings. It takes too long. but kids, remember to clean your bearings when the get loud. just because they're bones doesn't mean they're invincible. I screwed up one of my Reds because I rode it when it was dirty. It's still faster than my old fkd's tho. P.S. BONES makes good wheels too, give them a try.

They are the best in the world.

I had ABEC 7s but now I have Bones REDS!!!!They are the best that I've ever had.I had borrowed my friend's board and I asked him what bearings he had. He said he had Bones Reds. And so a skate shop had just opened here in the mall. So I went in bought my bearings. There the best I have ever had. God bless Bones REDS!
I only had these REDS Puppys for a little under a week and I can already tell that these are good. At the Skatepark I get more speed going down Ramps and more distance off of them. On the street bombing hills It's even faster. My old bearings can't even compare to my Reds. All together REDS the best and every skater should have a set.

What I'm about to say can be summed up into a nut shell: Bones bearings are the best! My two best friends own some hand-me-down Bones REDS and they worked pretty well. Both my best friends' bearings were used about a year be4 they were handed down to them and still act perfect. I used to ride on some ABEC-7's and thought they were the best, until I rode my best friends' boards. I thought, "Holy crap! These bearings are great!", because they rolled a lot smoother and were fast, even after my best friends jacked them up with WD40 while riding on heavy skate materials. Reading reviews and listening to other people talk tempted me to purchase some Bones REDS, since I'm on a tight budget. I've tried them on my board, and they work great! I'm going to buy some Bones Super Swiss 6 later on in the future because I love having a lot of speed when I skate. And another thing I like about them is that they last long. Me and my best friends usually skate anywhere one can skate at since there are few areas do to skateboarding being prohibited in a lot of places and lack of skateparks, and we usually get our bearings dirty or wet because we all love to skate, even in rainy weather or in dirty/sandy places. And with all of that, my best friends' Bones REDS STILL act great! But thank you, Bones, for making such great bearings for a lower price!
I've had my REDS for a year and there still rollin' great. My friends Element bearings where shot after a month.
Super Swiss 6 Super fast Swiss precision.
LISTEN UP! If you think you have good bearings and the're not Bones, You are wrong! Bones Swiss Ceramics are THE best skateboard bearings you can get. They really help my skating, especially on vert. The Ceramics are super-fast, silent, really smooth, and strong, too. The main reason I got the Swiss Ceramics is because I need to get a lot more speed with less effort, so I have more time to focus on my manuevers. I used to have REDS, which were great, but not as fast as I would have liked them to be. In the past I have had several sets of low-end bearings including no-name ABEC 5s, Birdhouse Jacked ABEC 5s, Pig Speedstars ABEC 7s, no-name ABEC 1s, and crappy FKD ABEC 3s. After getting Bones REDS, I stepped up to the Ceramics, which still improve my skating. God Bless Bones Bearings!!

These bearings might be too fast for mere humans. They really do last AND when you clean 'em they go like new.
These are the best bearing out there. I got Swiss and they are getting faster. Good job Bones.
I skated Bones Swiss for a year. They rocked. But then I got the Super Swiss 6, even better. Now I have Bones Swiss Ceramics, and that's the fastest they get. Skate Ceramics!!!!!
I have REDS and they are the best bearings I've ever had.
— Devin Strole
I like to skate really loose trucks but now that I have Bones, I have to tighten them because I go so fast my board shakes and I fall off.
I've had my Super Swiss 6 for three years now. With cleaning weekly for the year of hardest use, and about none before and after, they're still getting faster. If bearings got better than the Super Swiss 6, you'd have to get a loan on perfection from God. The only bearings to withstand my winter rain bombings too. Keep it up.
— Gregory Erickson
I had my Super Swiss 6 Bones bearings and they are the best ever. It was crazy when I was at the skate park. I think I was going too fast.
Bones Bearings are the best. No comparison. I've had my Ceramics for about 5 and a half months now and they're just starting to slow down. They're still faster than my homies FKD's. Much love Swiss!
These Super Swiss 6 is the bomb man... totally sweet.
— Bill Stanwood
Bones Swiss is the best, better than all the rest.
— Brandon Ulrich
Bones Bearings are extremely good. I started out with REDS but then went to Swiss. The first time I rode my Swiss I was totally amazed at how smooth and fast they where. Now they need some cleaning, but even though they go a little slower they are still faster than anyone else's bearings that I know of and probably will always be.
I started skating about three years ago and I always where trying different bearings trying to get what suited me... So I finally came to try the REDS after a friend got some and recommended them. So I went to the local skateshop and purchased a pair and was amazed at how smooth and how they kept their speed which was just what I needed, and for around 20 bucks which I find absolutely amazing for this quality I was sold on Bones products. Then I started getting better needing a little more speed and carry-on and I purchased Bones Swiss Bearings... WOW... I couldn't be more impressed at the quality and thinking put into these I mean not only do they fly, they maintain speed like no other, and thats exactly what I needed. No more heavy pushing in between tricks in a line, just a couple initiative pushes and your good. I know what company I'll always depend on for the best quality... Bones.
— Dave Kern
I got REDS. They rule. Next set are Bones for sure.
— Sean Gregory
I don't know why anyone would get any other bearings than Bones. I get REDS, and they are just as fast as pretty much anything except for Bones Swiss. For 17 bucks, you cannot get any better. Hell... for anything under 35 bucks you cannot get anything better. Bones are the way to roll... literally. Keep up the good work guys.
— Nick Lyle
I got REDS... smoothest ride ever. Next set of mine are going to be Bones Swiss. They look crazy fast.
— Sean Gregory
I used to ride FKD 5's, which weren't that bad, actually fairly good, but they took like 2 months to break in. That was my first set of bearings, and they lasted about a year, but they started slowing down, so I thought i should get new ones. All my friends were telling me to get the Ninja Ryan Sheckler 7's, and I was going to, before one of my friends told me about bones. I did my research, and your site was willing to tell me all about your bearings, while Ninja's site didn't even list the Shecklers. I bought reds at $17, because I didn't want to invest in the SS6 until I knew if Bones was as fast as they say they are. Let me tell you: I fell off my board the first time I tried the REDS (not broken in!). The guy in Havoc told me my old bearings were still good, and that REDS sucked, but I ignored him, and I'm glad I did. These things are insane, one of my friends with Black Panther 7's, which he said were the best ever, can't keep up, and he's been skating waaaay longer than me. After I purchased mine, my brother who had hkd 7's, tried my board and immediately bought himself a set of REDS. He would have bought the SS6's, but hes not too careful with his stuff (rides through sand, never cleans bearings, etc) And they wouldnt be worth it. He'll probably use reds for a while. I'm getting a longboard (rayne demonseed) later this year, and im putting SS6's in them. I cant wait. Thank you Bones! Keep up the awesome work! (and try to make some Super Swiss Ceramic sixes with titanium races and labyrinth shields, I think that would be insane).
Bones are well, cool and rule. I've only had mine for a day now and they are wicked. Mine are Bones Swiss and they are the best bearings I've ever had.
I have been sk8'n since '86 and only roll on dem Bones :) The blue ones are my favorites. Cheers!!!
— Peter Rea
Bones Bearings are the greatest bearings I've ever had. I'm on my 5th set and I've been skating for 3 years.
— Mitch Simmons
I have had REDS for my past few bearings and they rock. I bought some Bones Swiss and they are so FAST!!!!! As I rode out of the store I couldn't believe how fast I was going with just one push. Even my mom thought it was fast.
I purchased Bones REDS today .. They are faster than normal and more sexy, but my friend said his burst in 3 weeks. I'm gonna see how long they last compared to others, hopefully I'm still alive if they burst or it will be an heirloom, hahaha! Thanks Bones, for such affordable and excellent bearings.
Bones Bearings give you the speed you need to succeed! it is silly to skate anything else...!!!
After 20+ years of skating everything under the sun, the Swiss Ceramic Labyrinth bearings are the fastest bearings I have ever ridden. All of my regular skate friends tried my setup and were amazed by the Ceramics.
After using Bones Swiss, I felt "fear" when skating downing a long slope. EXTREME FAST!!!!!! SO TERRIBLE!!! No other bearings can be compared!
— Martian Successor
I've been riding Super Swiss 6 for half a year and they are fast as ****. They haven't decreased in quality; and have proven stronger than any other bearing I have ever purchased.
