How do you feel about your Bones® Bearings? Let us know!
I bought Bones REDS for the first time and they seem to have the best quality of any bearing I have ever had. I got 'em for $15.99!! That beats the lights out of the cheap, abec rated bearings that suck hard. Thanks Bones for bringing skateboarder's the quality bearings that we need to continue our legacy into the future.
Yo, I bought (well, my dad bought) me some Bones REDS and it was the first time I bought Bones bearings. If you want high speed and long lasting bearings, go with the REDS from Bones!! Haven't broke 'em in yet but will soon. Got 'em 12/17/2005, they rox my soxs!! Skate hard to all the skateboarders out there.

I just did my 7th grade science fair project on bearing types. I tested your Bones Super Swiss Six and Shorty's black panthers. Yours beat them by far... in distance you beat them by 9ft. Would you like to see my project...!!!! You guys rock!!!!!
— Conner Merrall
These bearings is off tha hook. Yesterday, I was riding down the street and I just pushed and I rode so fast that I had tears in my eyes when I stopped and I took my board to work today instead off my car!!
— Marc Anthony
Bones are awesome, nothing can replace them. They're just perfect. Fast, cheap, irreplaceable. Once you go Bones you can never go back.
Bones Bearings make the world go 'round.
During the past I have bought about 10 set of different bearings and they all suck and waaay too damn noisy until I came to an article of Bones and I believed what they said... so I went to the store and bought these bearings to see if it's true and I was like, these are the $@*%! I'm so glad I chose Bones Bearings.
— Ryan Hidalgo
I've had the Bones REDS since a while, after one and a half year the broke. Now I have FKD's but they can't come close to the quality that Bones gives you. The best thing about them is that the are fast, strong and compared to other bearings, cheap and give you twice the quality.
Totally worth it, I've had my Bones for over 5 years, still good as new.
Bones Swiss are so %@*!ing badass! DYC skate rules.
— Andrew Rea
I agree with your skate team. Your bearings are the best bearings I've ever rode and last the longest and all my friends agree with your team.
— John Antley
I just have REDS and those are AWESOME! I have had them 2 years and they are still going. I even lost one of the balls and the bearing still goes as fast! Which is crazy. I just wanted to say I love your guy's bearings! They kick ass! You guys have the team to prove it! I'm about to get a new board and I am gonna get one of your Swiss Bones. I'm not sure which ones yet. If those go faster thats crazy! Well thanks for making kick ass bearings! And please keep on doin it! Fellow Skater

Dear Bones family, I recently set in some bearings that I stupidly tore apart while cleaning. I want to say thank you for replacing, fixing, whatever you did and letting get back on my ride. I know that I will and always will be loyal to the satisfaction I get from your company.
— David Palos
First of all, I MUST say, Bones Bearings are without any doubt the most exceptional bearings in the world, pure genius design, Swiss 6's are as far as I've gone, I can only imagine the sick performance of the Ceramics. Anyway, after drooling over your top class bearings, I would like to say a Huge thank you for your time and effort you've all put in to design such an amazing bearing. Take care folks! Keep up the good work ; )
— Paul Hartley
Right now I have some crappy Pig "speed stars" but they aren't speedy at all. I got them when I was 8 so now I'm thinking about getting some Bones Ceramics. I rode my friends deck w/ REDS on it and I can just imagine what the rides gonna be like on the ceramics. I'll write what i think about the Ceramics when I get em.
Hey, I've got tons of tips that you guys have the best bearings around, and I saw some 3 year old ones today that still kicked ass. L8R
— Andrew Bielefeld
I laugh at my friends because they're used to their bearings and when they try to ride my board they fall off (I use Reds. I have had them a year and a half and they still are good.) They are the best you can get if you're trying to save money.
— Justin Cody
I got on Westys flow team 2 months ago and the first thing I bought was a pair of REDS bearings cause the pair of REDS I'd was riding for the last 7 months were hag. They're even cheaper with my 40% discount. Thanks Bones, U guys rock.
— Ian Gilbert
Hey Bones. I've been on local sk8 team for 2 months now when I first started it sucked cause I could not get any momentum. Better faster people say bearings don't matter. but they do... a lot. Thanks for keeping it real fast.
— Coty Konicki
I have had Bones REDS for about 3 weeks and they rule. They are still as fast as the day I got them.
— Bob George
Good News!! I dropped a wheel in a puddle of water last weekend, and spun it out, rode on it and it did not rust shut. It was in the water a good 5 minutes. Thanks for the two sided bearings!
Bones Bearings are by far the best quality bearings I have ever owned in my life. I was amazed at how quiet they are and how fast they spin. Keep up the good work.
I recently purchased a package of Bones Super Swiss 6 and they are UNBELIEVABLE... My first time dropping in I almost face planted into the ground because the speed was just ... shocking on how fast I went so quickly it was just amazing. I used to have World Industries grenade bearings and these have no competition to them. These are the greatest bearings I have ever skated!!!!!!
I really like the Bones REDS Bearings. These bearings are better than my old ATM ABEC-5 Bearings. If was really good, and I was going to be sponsored by you guys, I would choose yes because REDS are the fastest bearings I ever tried. If I had a lot of $, and I mean lots, I would try to get the Swiss Ceramics.
— Byron L.
I've had 3 sets of REDS now and they have outperformed any bearings that I have ever owned... When I need new ones, I'll most likely get Bones Swiss Performance... My cousin has the 6 balls and i like those but I'll probably get the swiss... BONES BEARINGS ARE THE BEST BEARINGS EVER!!!!
— Gregg Dillenbeck
They @#$*in rock hard. They last long and you should sell Ceramics for cheap. I aint made of mula. But I love you guys.
Your bearings are really great. I ollied a 16, rolled away clean and fast with Reds.
— Tony Quijano
These bearing $&@*IN KICK! oh boy I was gettin more speed and higher ollies like whoaaa went from 1 deck to 2 decks with increased speed! Thank you Bones!
— Nick Beltran
Reds are some of the best bearings I have ever had. They just spin forever. I would recommend Reds to anyone looking for good bearings, but has a tight budget.
The Bones Super Swiss Six are the best bearings I have ever used. They don't break like most bearings do skating 4 stair double sets or bigger and I hope that there will be bearings even stronger than the Bones Super Swiss 6 in the future.
Here is a quick little story about the difference in quality your bearings offer... I work in San Diego at a skate shop, and I have been riding your bearings for 8 years now. Yesterday a man came in with his 13 yr old son to buy him a skateboard. The dad was one of those "way-cooler-than-you-when-I-was-young" guys. His son asked me about the price difference in the bearing and I told him the typical faster, last longer, best. His dad started harping me about trying to sell the most expensive thing for the money, and said that there was no way the bearings were that much better quality. He pulls a complete off of the wall and starts rolling on the carpet saying "There's no way they are that much different. I handed him my board and told him to test it out... He set it down to roll out of our doorway, gave a push... ate !#$*!!!! I'm not talkin' tumbled over. He flew back, feet level with his hips before he back-flopped. My board shot across the street!!! Meanwhile, pops is still on his ass and me and his son are trying so hard not to laugh. When he stood up, he punched the shirt rack, put is finger in my face like he was gonna kick my ass or something and yelled "Why the !#$* do you need to go that !#$*ING fast anyway, Hugh?!?!!!" Needless to say, the kid rode out on a brand new set of Super Swiss, and dad forked up the cash a changed man... ha, ha.

I love being on the Bones Bearings team. Thanks for being the best bearing manufacturers in the world!
— Danny Wainright
My friend got a pair of Bones Swiss Six last year. Holy shizle, they're still going good. I'm so jealous... they are so smooth still.
— Dennis Betz
I've had many bearings in my days but Bones Swiss Six ball are by far the best.
— Sam Charest
I can't wait til I get these friggin bearings!!! OMG!! Swiss Ceramics, I have to get them!!!
One day I was riding with my friend. I had ABEC 7's and I couldn't get enough speed to jump a 3 set. He told me try his board because it had Bones Reds. So I hopped on and went super fast, nailed the steps, and rolled away! I just bought Bones Swiss for my board.
— Lee Hanyo
My first pair of Bones were the Bones Super Swiss Six bearings. It took me 3 months of skating everyday doing gaps ledges and just your normal variety street tricks. Then I got a set of ninja 7 lightnings, but they don't hold up on street for very long the shields dent easy. Then I got a set of Bones Reds from a friend and cleaned them up good and I've skated them for going on a year now and they roll better and faster than they did when they were new. I haven't ever had a problem with any Bones product. The next bearings I get will be the Bones Ceramics.
— Seth Blizzard
I just bought Bones Super Swiss Six. Oh my God, they are so fast. Bones, you are represented in Louisiana. Peace out.
I just had recently bought some Swiss Bearings at a skate shop and ever since I was amazed by the quality of these bearings! By far, they are different from most of the ABECs I've rode in my life time! They were dead silent when I rode them, smooth over any surfaces, and so easy to clean when I accidently get them in dirt! Truly a great piece of metal, lol. Thanks so much for your product!
I just bought a set of Bones Swiss Six to replace my old busted bearings... and these things are a whole new monster. They ride smoother than anything I know, for a few extra bucks I nailed an amazing set that I know will last for a long time.
It is clear to the majority of skaters that Bones Bearings are the fastest bearings money can buy, but I think what really astounds people is how much faster Bones Bearings are than any other brand.
— Tom Dark
These bearings are super strong super fast, have great accelleration, and last for ever. They ROCK!!
I bought some Reds on the cheap since I can't always afford the kickass SS6's, and it came time to break them in. I rode them 17 miles nonstop downhill. The heat was horrible on them, the lube burnt off. That was all at mile 8. Only one blew out, at mile 17, due to the extreme circumstances. Awesome bearings. Thanks for the great ride.
— Greg Erickson
I bought some Bones REDS over a year ago, and they're still spinning great! I recommend these bearings to anyone who wants great bearings at a fairly cheap price!
— Kalvin Taylor
I just bought the Bones Super Swiss 6 bearings and they are by far the best I've ever skated. Bones is the bomb!
