Bones® Bearings Testimonials
The many leaders
How do you feel about your Bones® Bearings? Let us know!
The first set of good bearings I had was back in seventh grade. I got REDS on my board for my birthday, and I started getting more serious with my skating. I'm now a freshman in college, and I've busted two decks and three bearings since I got here about a month ago. The decks are understandable, but after three bearing replacements, I decided to go into my stash and get the bearings that never failed. I washed some old grease off the six year old REDS, and set them up. They still ride like the day I got them, and I think they'll probably last the rest of my college career (and if not, $15 to replace the whole set isn't bad…). Thanks a million from the East Coast!
Our team recently headed to Ottawa to get some hill bombing footage, so I picked up a set of REDS for the price and I can tell you, I've never gone faster down a hill. Thanks for the awesome bearings!

I have Bones Swiss on my longboard and when ever I race my friends down hills I always win, even if they start before me.

I have the Super Swiss 6 bearings and I love it! But I wanna make a suggestion. You guys should make another ceramic bearing but with the 6 ball bearings in it. If you guys could do that, I'd be psyched!
— Kevin Alano
I recently purchased my first longboard, having skated short for 35 years. I ordered a set of Bones bearings and all the cleaning stuff.
While waiting for delivery, I have looking through your web site .... and I already feel like one of the "Bones Family". I have learned a shitload about cleaning and maintenance that I never knew. I really feel like you guys care!
I can't wait to start putting all this new knowledge into practice.
Many thanks in advance,
— Giles “Julio” Ashford
You guys make some awesome bearings!

It's been 18 years and tack on 100 lbs since I last skated around on my own board. The other day a kid let me mess around with a cheap-o longboard and I realized how much I missed skateboarding. So I decided to get back into boarding... Ordered a brand new complete longboard. (Gravity Kalai fatty flex, ABEC11 76mm 75a Gumballs, with 10'' stalker gullwing trucks... and had them throw in your sweet Swiss ceramics.) The board just came in today and to be honest this board scares the living crap out of me. lol I can really tell the difference from a cheap-o brand to these monsters. Now i can't wait for my pads and brain bucket to arrive so I don't kill myself out there. Anyways.... Outstanding job on an outstanding product! Usually the skater breaks in the bearings... I have a feeling the bearings are going to break me in lol

Fucking fast... no other feeling just burning down a hill with the ceramics!

Hey, I love your bearings. I ride them almost everyday in my set up and I love them. They ride better than any bearing I have ever ridden. Thanks.
— Sam “Creation” Creton
I've always longboarded with cheaper bearings with the expectation of changing them out after every run, then I heard about Bones Super Swiss 6 that pretty much last forever as long as you take care of them. 6 months later and 84 runs and they still are as smooth as the day I got them.

I never thought bearings made a difference until I tried Bones Swiss.
— Mark “Marv” Shackleton , flaktraks.tumblr.com
Bought some Bones REDS, although they are more expensive they are by far the best on the market, I've had spitfire, speed demons and all the other brands but none of them come close to the speed and strength of these AWESOME bearings, I would highly recommend these babies if you take your boarding seriously, I would.
— Jack “Jack”
I bought my first set of Bones Swiss bearings on a secondhand board from a used sports equipment shop. 7 years, hundreds of miles, and ZERO cleanings and they still run just as well as half the bearing you can buy new today. Thanks for the amazing products!
I don't know. Maybe they are good. I don't know. Naaaaaaaaa, I'm just joking... I have never had a better set of bearings!! Considering the price, Bones REDS are the best bearings in the world of skating!! Go REDS!!!
— Carlos “The Burritou” Haneski , The Flip Flap Skaters
You people did a great job by making those bearings. My Swiss Ceramics are awesome. They go fast, are easy to clean and are the best bearings I've ever seen and used. Keep up the good work.
Bearings are amazing.

I used to skate with a friend's board that didn't have Bones on them. So when I learned he was getting another, I told him to go with REDS. He had his doubts, until he tried it out. He gave me his board and I put REDS on it too. So now I have a board that skates like new and the best bearings ever.
Dear Bones, I recently found my dad's first skateboard which he gave to me. He's an old guy now (about 50) not really that old, LOL, when I took a look at what his set up is I found that he has Bones Bearings and a sticker on the board. I took the board for a a ride it works like new! My friend and I went for a spin and I had no problem keeping up against my landyacht. A true test of durability is that your bearings are still fast after at least 20 years. I plan to keep this board as a vintage treasure with no new parts and ride it as much as i can. Keep up the unreal craftsmanship!
First, I started out with Darkstar bearings. They popped out. Then I switched them for Speed Demon bearings. They were too slow. And THEN I bought some REDS, because I decided that I didn't want to sk8 around with shitty bearings. So far,these bearings are really popular in my school, and they sure are really good! Good Quality,Good speed, and they come with a free sticker ;).
I wanted to tell you people at Bones that you guy have the best bearings and product. I will always buy you're guy's bearings. THANK YOU!
— Richard Pasillas
So I have been skating for a while, and never once have I changed my bearings. Every time I got a new deck I simply threw my bearings on there. After hearing about Bones I thought maybe I should get a new set of bearings, but I should wait till my other ones stop working well. I have a feeling I won't be getting new ones anytime soon because Ive been riding REDS the whole time. :D and they still work great!
— Roy Roque
Bones bearings are amazing and they get even better as you ride them! I have been skateboarding for almost a year now and have been riding bones reds for 4 months...Only 1 thing to say...AWESOME
Bones Swiss Ceramics are almost the best that my eyes have seen so far. My biggest dream in life is to have Bones Swiss Ceramics. Thank you for making the best bearing in the universe!
When it comes to skating, Guapo chooses none other then Bones Bearings. Fast, efficient, and downright sexy, we ride nothing else. Bone REDS or nothing. Thanks for making the best bearings in the sport that we've ever ridden. -Stay Guapo!
— Jack “Sarge” Crowe , GuapoBoarding
Bought one set for just a board of mine now all my boards have them! Thanks for making great bearings!
I’ve been skating with Bones since 88, and even today I still use them there a lot better than most products on the market.
— Eric “the EQguy”
Dope ass bearings! REDS... my love.
I've had my Swiss set since around '87, I have neglected to ever clean them properly and they have stood the test of time. I have only now just replaced them 24 years later. Awesome!
— Aaron “Animal”
All other bearings are bad news bears compared to these! These are good news gorillas!!!!!
I have bought other bearings that cost more but my Bone REDS have blown everyone of them out of the water. There is nothing that can compare to Bones bearings. They are the best in the Sk8 world, keep making those awesome bearings!!! Bones Super REDS are next on my list.
— Sean “DarkStarSk8” Kilgore
i have skated a lot of bearings since I started skating. They were all ok but then I customized a new bored. I put Bones REDS in it. let me tell you I will never skate another brand again. Bones all the way.

Crazy fast bearings.
Bones Bearings are the only bearings every skater should ride today because they are the fastest on the planet!
— Josh “dagoon” uno
These are some magic bearings. Go Bones or be a turtle.
Those who know, know that there is only Bones. Simple and absolute, truly the standard to be judged by.
— Karamvir “Kam”
Bones Swiss... best bearing ever!! Smoothest things ever, that is including my charm!!!
— daniel “dan the MAN”
I'm a 10 year old skater. I just bought Bones REDS, and it's like riding on air! My older bearings were black and the REDS were (obviously) red. If anyone asks me what bearings to buy, it would definitely be Bones Bearings!
— mitchell “zbek”
I LOVE!! my Bones Swiss Labyrinth bearings. Only one suggestion... You should make a Bones Swiss Super Six Labyrinth Ceramic bearing! The Ultimate in speed and durability!!!
— Parker “AttitudeXX” Anderson
When it comes to bearings for my skateboard the question is which Bones Bearings. I had some spare cash and got Bones Swiss Ceramics and now the cash doesn't need to be spare to get these. It's ridiculous. They go so easy my 20 kg dog can carry me uphill. Bones to the death.
I have been skating Swiss ceramics for a few months now. Today I used a deck with regular bearings and it felt like someone was pulling me back. These bearings are beyond ridiculous, they feel like you're gliding.I will never use anything other than Swiss ceramics. I have a serious crush on them.
— Jamie “Slug” Webster
Bought some Bones Super Reds today from local shop. I rode them around for about half an hour and they were broken in. Rode around my neighborhood, usually takes about 30 minutes. Took 15...BONES4LIFE!!!!
Bones Bearings are the best... and expensive...
I ride all bearings you can imagine... But when I ride Bones... I fell in love. I just didn't like the Bones Swiss Ceramics for street... I got my Ceramics bearings broken... I you ride street ride with Bones Swiss, is the best bearings ever. Bones bearings have the best reputation in the world... Here, in Brazil, if you ask: What are the best bearings availabe? So they say: Bones bearings for sure. I always use Bones Swiss bearings on my skateboard. Yes, it is a little bit expensive but CHEAP = BAD (not all of them) EXPENSIVE = BETTER (it depends). Bones bearings forever!
— José Augusto
Bones REDS bearings are great, the detachable only twice to clean them I can say is that Bones Bearings is the best brand of bearings for skateboard, my next will be rolling Bones Swiss.
