Bones® Bearings Testimonials
The many leaders
How do you feel about your Bones® Bearings? Let us know!
Had been using low to mid range bearings for around 15 years; the usual fodder. You know, just replace 'em when you set up some new wheels... they don't cost that much, why not? About 4 years ago, I shelled out for Bones Swiss Ceramics. Have only taken them apart twice to clean 'em, and they're as fast and quiet as the day I bought 'em. Mind boggling really. They'll change your life. Don't waste a decade and a half like I did.

I have Bones REDS bearings, they are better than other brands abec 9s. Bones REDS really suprised me, its a cheap bearing with a great performance. Now I'm waiting for Bones Swiss Ceramics, I'm sure that they are worthy! Regards from Chile!

Other bearings can be faster at first and then they slow down easily but they don't last near as long as Bones REDS precision skate bearings because my friends has had his for 2 years.

Bearings better than Bones Swiss Ceramics? NEVER!
— Michael “Mick” Smith
After my about 7 months of use, one of my bearings that came with my board fell apart, and my friend suggested that I get myself Bones Bearings. So I went to my local skateshop with about $50 and left with a set of Bones Super REDS, and still some spare cash left over!
Since then, my longboarding experience changes for the better. At only $35, I would recommend Bones Super Reds to anyone, they are great bearings for an even better price, and with proper care and maintenance, they will last you a lifetime!
I've been skating since 1988, and I have only used your products. I've changed board types many times, but I've stuck with your bearings. My dad got my first set up at a pawn shop and it came with a box of your bearings.

Super Swiss 6 are super sweet. I did not know if what I read about them were true or overrated. They are in fact very amazing. They are almost too fast to the point where they are DANGEROUS so only get them if you want danger.

I've been getting back into skateboarding from a long break. Recently purchased an complete deck and I love the board but the bearings were still really "stiff" after a long break in period so I went to my local shop and picked up some Bones Super Reds. WOW! Never has my board been so smooth and fast. It is effortless to gain and maintain speed and it feels as if you are gliding on a cloud. I'm never using another brand again. Bones skater for life!
— James “Jamie” Beasley
Bones ride crazy fast with twice the distance per push even better with Speed Cream.
I've been riding these things pretty much all 7 years skateboarding, never going to use anyone other than REDS.
— Gavin “dood” Dowse
I have never ridden so smoothly in my life. My skateboard rolls for so long I don't tire. Bones reds are a must buy.
Have been riding Bones Bearings my whole longboarding life and out of all the bearings I've tried in the past Bones Bearings are the best specifically Bones Super Swiss ceramics for their quietness smooth ride and durability
— Brian “b-mister” edmiston
I got Bones REDS today, and so far they are the best bearings I've ever had. I figure that I'd had enough with ABEC rated bearings when they don't even match up. And REDS are so affordable but you still get more than enough quality. I will never ride an ABEC rated bearing as long as Bones is around. I ride Skate Rated.
— Diego “dieho”
Wow. I had a pair of Bones REDS for a while without the shields. They just kept getting quicker and quicker. I decided its kinda dangerous if the bearings get too dirty so I just got new Bones REDS. My friend is currently using my old ones and he is actually faster than me!!
I have this Super REDS Bones bearings for 6 months, they are amazing, very smooth, quiet and fast.
Bones Bearings are SUPER!!!
— Vinícius “TK” Ynoue
About 3 months ago I purchased a set of Bones Swiss for my Sector 9 and have been having a blast non-stop. Within the week I am purchasing the Bones Swiss Ceramics and don't know what to expect. I'm in my study hall class right now itching in my chair waiting to get a call to say they have arrived in the mail. Thank you Bones Bearings, I really appreciate everything you guys work for.
— Marshall Sallee
Look I bought the Bones Swiss bearing probably about a week ago. I told my friend that I got them and he said, "holy s*, dude! that's what the pros use." After I took that out on my longboard to break them in, I thought to myself "Wow, I think is that fast most quiet ride I have had had. I suggest these bearings to intermediate skaters or if you just want to go really fast.
Nice job guys, keep up the good work!!!
— Miles “Speed” Moussa
My 7 year old son received Bones bearings for Christmas from his Uncle and he says they make his wheels "go faster and smoother." My husband & I have been finishing up on his Christmas present, a 26x10x4 half pipe, but have been delayed because of all the rain happening here in California.

— ALPHONSO “ZO” BROWN , SKATE KING
I started skating in 86 or so... I've been skating Bones Bearings for 7 or 8 years now (Swiss & 6 balls), and they're the best, no doubt. Today, I bought my first set of Ceramics! I'm really hyped and it's really an honor for me to ride them... I just love the sticker too. Thank you for delivering the quality and precision material our activity requires.
Your bearings are GREAT! I use the BONES® REDS™ bearing and they are fast! MORE POWER!

I've had a pair of Bones Swiss that I used for around a year, then they sat in a pair of wheels for another 2 years in a drawer. Took them out today and cleaned them for the first time, still going strong, smooth, and fast! Thanks to all of you at Bones Bearings for creating, maintaining, and caring for the rest of us. Keep it up!
— raphael “foli”
Man, I just got a new box of Bones REDS yesterday, they are the quietest, best rolling bearings on the planet! If your looking for great bearings... stop right there and pick up a box of Bones!!!!!!
— christian “hamlet” oldham
At first when I got the bearings I was holding them in my hand so I spun them. They only spun for 4 sec. But when I put them on my board they where going super fast that's why I love the REDS.
— emilijus gintalas
So I got the REDS Super Ceramics with my new Landyachtz. These bearing are amazing. I did a test to see how far I could go with 2 pushes. So I did the first starting push then another right after and I kept going for a good 350 feet. All my friends say like a hot knife cutting through butter. Amazing. Keep it up.
— Jake “Jiggins” Riggins

— Christian “chris” Rabenitas , Okisk8ers
I don't have Bones Bearings, but my friends do. I've skated their boards and I about cried. I can't explain how good they feel. Once you have a taste, you can never go back. I love Bones Bearings and I'll be getting some soon.
— Jason “Jesus” Bullcock , Skat-Boobing

The Super Swiss 6 live up to the hype. Noticeably FASTER than the Swiss. Great purchase.
You don't even think about getting the bearings next to those REDS.
I Ride Bones Swiss period.

Hey Austin Warner, so sorry to hear you are having trouble with your heart. if you are anything like me, it must have been hard to stop skating for a couple months. i can't go for more than 4 days without skating. but on a serious note, hope you heal fast and get your bills paid and get back to skating!
Oh, BTW, Bones ARE THE BEST!!!! my friend has had his swiss bearings forever!!! I'm hoping to get some either for my birthday or Christmas!!
— Daniel “Dan” Millard

— julz “juju” cortez
Bones REDS are the best bearings you can buy for the money. Never think twice about buying Bones REDS!!! They are awesome so go get some.
— Charlie Wilson
REDS are absolutely smashing, I have had Ceramics (paid $300NZ) they were alright but didn't last as long as REDS.
— Aran “Kook” , Teabag Trucks
I have skated for over a decade and tried numerous different bearings.
Without doubt, Bones are the best.
Designed for skateboarding. Designed for speed. Designed to last.
Don't believe me? Try them for yourself.
Great bearings! Though they span for longer and faster than my friends bearings, they didn't spin for as long/fast as i expected it would, i expected it would spin for a consistant and a long time ~ even for 2 mins! but i was wrong. Also, DO NOT go in water and skate in it for a while, it slowed my bearings to 5 seconds spin time and i have to use compressed air, also, no one locally sells the cleaner or speed cream so i am disappointed and i may have well ruined my bearings.
I've been riding on some sort of bearings since I was two. When I was about 8 my older brother had a sponsorship with you guys in which he rode Swiss but gave me the REDS. I started longboarding about 5 years ago and have only bought Swiss 6 for my boards and I still ride my original bearings sometimes they are still butter smooth and I only clean my everyday wheels once every 2-4 months. All of my boards have been 30 mph and up and there's never a sweat of them welding together or falling apart when I start sliding at high speeds Needless to say I doubt I will ever ride abec rated bearings again and if I do it is only cause I'm not riding one of my boards. Thank you Bones you guys are the best.
— Joey , Longboarding
Bought the Bones Swiss Ceramics bearings. Best decision I've ever made.
I, Tyler Young of Gallipolis, Ohio have been skateboarding for about six months now. Over these past few months I have been through various brands of bearing and nothing compares to Bones Bearings. Thank You.
