First time I've tried Bones REDS and I wouldn't choose any other bearings out there! It was unbelievable how smooth, quiet and fast it was! I'm like addicted to them. Haha.
Definitely buying HEAPS more!
I bought my first set of Bones Bearings today. It was the best 18 dollars of my life!
I live in GB and when i went on holiday in USA i got my first pair of Bones REDS for $15 that was 6 years ago and they still run like new. Now i have Bones Swiss and it was the "best buy" of my life and I got those 4 yrs ago none broken, popped still new. Even sold the other 4 I'm that trustworhty of them. If anyone ever reads this and is interested I say: GO ON BUY THEM!!
Hi guys! I have a story to tell you. Today, I poured my Bones Speed Cream on my eyes thinking it was eye drops. I should have absolutely checked but I didn't. This one is on me, but are there any chances to get your bottles to look distinguishably different from the generic eye drops? Even a black cap will do it. I understand that those little bottles may be easier to buy or that I'm likely your only dumb customer who decided to grease their eyes instead of their bearings. Nonetheless, it sucked and I can't help but feel like we've been conditioned to think over the years that those little bottles are for eye drops... but now they're for bearing cleaners too! For this excited, absent-minded skater it was hard to separate them so I poured two drops of Speed Cream on one eye and one drop on the other. Fun times! Just thought you should know this happened. Likely I'm your first buyer that did this, but just in case I'm not I'm telling you and maybe you want to do something about it.

I have had my Bones Super REDS for 4 years and they are the best bearings I have ever owned. They run like new and work great, even if they are a little dirty. It was a great decision to buy them!!!!!
— Brandon “The Bomb”
First time I ever spent that much for bearings and it was worth it just bought a set of the Super Swiss 6 they are super smooth and super fast. I broke them in pretty fast doing speed lines in the park.
— Victor “Vic”
I recently got a set of Super REDS for my Palisades longboard. These bearings are the best I've ever had! They're definitely better than regular REDS and after I cleaned them and re-lubed them they were insanely smooth and and fast. I have the best bearings of everyone I skate or longboard with now.
— Matt “Matteh”
I had Bones REDS in my drop deck Evo, and switched the the Swiss Ceramics. I'll never go back. I'm sure when I can afford the super Swiss Ceramics I'll never go back from those either! Excellent quality for your buck.
— Jay Bolen
After riding Bones Swiss for about a year now, I don't know why I didn't use them before them! Well done to the Bones team for these amazing pieces of skating equipment.
Hey I just bought some Bones Swiss bearings and they felt wierd when I first got them but no since I have broken them in they are super fast and super smooth (NEVER GOING TO A DIFFRENT BEARING COMPANY!!!) Bones The Best On The Market!
— Timothy “Timbo”
EPIC BEARINGS!!! Fastest I have ever used!!!
— Timmy “Timbo”
My buddy and I both bought REDS and love them. I went a couple steps up and bought the Super Swiss 6. I can handle any speed I need to for hills. Only downside is my buddy can out-coast me anytime and we have the same set up. All around I'll take any Bones Bearings in a heart beat if I had a choice.

Your bearings cruise forever.

— David “Dave”

— ivan “the terrible”
I'm starting my own skate company and I still remember the day I got my board, it was about a year ago I went to my local skate shop and picked out a shop deck with thunder lights and a set of REDS. Now I'm never going back. I love these bearings.
— O'Neal , 6ix Star Skateboarding
I have 3 longboards, and one skateboard. They have Bones Swiss Six, Bones Swiss, and REDS. One of my Bones Swiss six are over 4 years old and still roll like day one, through water, dirt, bombing hills, and stairs. These things will not die. I haven't used any other bearing brand in 4 years.
— Kurt Backer
Shake Junt bearings need to be renamed to Shake JUNK. My regular Bones REDS last way longer in this west coast weather and are much cheaper.
— Jay “Jaymaican”
Your bearings are just all around amazing. They roll so nicely and are also sold at a relatively low price.
— Mason Cope
ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT BONES IS DONE... it's all that they say it is.
— matt “RAT” crevald
I'm coming up on year 6 with a single set of Bones Swiss Ceramics. I have Ceramics in all my set-ups, but these are the oldest. I cleaned them last week. Still as fast and as quiet as the day I bought them. 6 years; think about that.
— Mark “blackentrepreneur” Bonner
When I got my long board, it came with a set of Bones REDS. Have been rolling on those ever since. When I had to replace my skateboard bearings, I did it with Bones REDS. Never going back.
— Sam “Bam Sarlow” Barlow , Student
When Corey Duffel came to Costa Rica he gave me the ones that he has Bones Swiss and I have two words ... just awesome.. a year and a half using it!!! Bones Swiss for life.
— fabian “fa chvs”
My BruthA told me about Bones REDS... never looked back since any other bearings waste of time. Strictly Bones.
— Beau “Nuddi” Spooner , Fuck the system
I have been skating for about 10yrs now and have tried all other bearings luckys, pigs, black panthers, reflex, speeddemons and countless others. And have busted races and retainers and ball bearings fly everywhere left stranded far from home having to walk home. all other bearings are sluggish and flat out suck. now that I'm older I finally purchased Super REDS, Bones Swiss, and a set of REDS Ceramics for my setups and the ride is unbelievable. I will never go back to crappy bearings again if your a true skater no other bearing will do Bones brand is a no brainer. so go get some!!!!!!!!
— sean “seanoch” ramirez
I just got REDS today and they are the best.
— Rahul “rahul”
I just have to say that Bones REDS are the best and they provide more speed, acceleration, and durability better than other bearing companies out there.
— Dylan “Coconut Head” Tran
I've been skating for a few years now and over that time I've been through tons of bearings and brands. But Bones Bearings are the only ones I trust and will always use. Ceramic Swiss are AMAZING. YOU GUYS ROCK!
I just put my 2010 Bones Swiss bearings that I had used for about a year on m brand new loaded vanguard. It has Orangatang 75mm 80a wheels and Paris 180 trucks. The loaded jehu performance bearings, which came with the board, spun for about 35 seconds. Immediately after installing the Bones Swiss, I did the same test to find that the wheels spun for 3:04.
Message: go Bones or go home.

I haven't skated for 2 years I go to my grandmas and there's a skate park so I decided to give it a try again.so I went to my closest skateboard shop and asked for some bearings but I didn't know nothing about bearings. I wanted some good bearings but cheap. They told me to get REDS I got them and now rocking them in the skate park.
— kevin alvarez
I made the purchase of the 6 balls. DAYYYUMMMN. So good!
— Jake “karen” Fry
I first heard of these bearings at my local skatepark. So I' getting a new board and I'm like, REDS!!!! And so far they have been the most reliable bearings I ever tried. And I'm probably going to be sticking with Bones without a doubt.
— joel “jelly” mcclure
I've had 2 set of REDS Ceramics, they lasted almost a whole summer till a few of the ball bearings cracked because I skated to hard with them, so instead I got Super Swiss 6's for about the same price and since then I haven't bought a different set of bearings. Thanks to you guys who make the best bearing out there.
I skated with Black Panther abec 5's for quite a while and recently switched to Super Redz. What a HUGE difference! Overall smoother and faster! Hopefully I'll get a set of Super Swiss 6's for Christmas!
— Fat Nat
Always Bones REDS for me. Have never even tried any others because I cant see how they could possibly be better. Whether bombing hills or slamming in the town centre they are always perfect and outlast every set up I've ever had.
Thanks Bones dudes!

When I was a wee youngin' my grandma had a stroke, I was currently in catholic school and I received a phone call from my mother during class explaining she had no more then a few minutes to live whilst on her hospital bed. My priest looked in my worrying eyes and said "Godspeed my Boy" and handed me his skateboard setup with Swiss bearings and a bible with the Bones Swiss emblem on it. I flew at the speed of a bat outta hell with my priests board, God and Satan watched and applauded in awe as I exceeded 40mph flat ground to the hospital. Except I did not stop at hospital and with no regret raced to the skatepark flatenning large bugs with my face much like a car windshield on a freeway. My grandmother still smiles at me today when I purchase Bones Swiss bearings.
I just bought my first longboard and I got Bones Super REDS and they are amazing!!!!!!!
— Jack “Attack”
If you are considering buying a pair of Bones Bearings, but aren't sure and are reading all the testimonials, just stop here. THEY ARE THE BEST. End of.
Hey I just got some Bones Swiss bearings a few weeks ago. Right after I got them I lubed them with speed cream and put them in my wheels. Just 3 days ago my friend got Shake Junt bearings and did the same. We're kind of competitive so we always try to see who's bearings are faster. I don't live anywhere near a skatepark and only get to go to one about once a month, so my bearings are not broken in yet. He lives colser to the skatepark and goes every weekend, and his are broken in. And when we have "Bearing Contests", I still always win.
— Gunnar Ellis
Can't believe how smooth and durable Super REDS are. :D
The best of the best!!!
— Nuno “Gaia” , KATE SKATESHOP
I had 2 sets of REDS in the past years and I always loved them but after almost 13 years of skating finally I got SWISS yesterday. They're fast as s**t!
— Ignacio “Moon” Nuñez
