If you are a kid with limited funds, get the REDS, the cleaning bottle and some Speed Cream. If you are a grown - ass man, get the Super Swiss 6, the cleaning bottle and Speed Cream. Now go skate.— Dale Schultz
I've owned Reds for some time now and I've just got to say they're the best bearings for the price range. Prepare for crazy stupid speed.— Charlie Garcia
Hi,— Benjamin “Ben” Miller
For years, I was the type of cheap skater who thought that the bottom shelf parts were all I needed to complete a good setup. After all, if my bearings always break, why waste money on the slightly more expensive ones? A year ago, after one too many trips to the skateshop for broken bearings, I decided to change it up and try Bones Reds. I'm still riding the same ones now, and the effortless glide is still there even after a year. I cannot express how much of a difference the 2 extra dollars has made; I stopped having to replace my bearings every month and I no longer think twice before ollieing a big gap. Thanks so much for keeping my pushes smooth, and my tricks confident!
Just Thanx— Mitch Chandler, Skateboarding
If you have never dropped in on a set of bones swiss, you owe yourself that experience. You will be going stupid fast. Prepare to reach the other end of the ramp or pool with a quickness!— Guero “Saskwash”
I highly recommend Bones products. I have the Super Swiss 6 ball bearings in 3 of my four skateboards. These bearings plus a set of Bones Rough Riders makes for a nice smooth ride.— Greg “Greg C.” Clark
Was hooked up with a set of y'alls Swiss Ceramics almost a decade ago.... and I'm JUST NOW having to replace them. These bearings have outlasted countless decks, pairs of shoes, you name it.. ..Sure they're $140, but consider the fact that these bad boys will last 100x longer than anything else around.. in the long run they're actually cheaper. Its sad to see them go. Will be looking into getting another set soon.— Chris Wells
I use to buy the cheap $20 - $30 ABEC 7 bearings from all kinds of different brands. Sometimes I would get lucky and get a decent roll and life out of the bearing. Then one day I decided to give the Bones® Swiss Bearings a try. The first ride is so smooth and fast. They rode like no other bearing Ive ridden.
Now I only buy Bones® Swiss Bearings once a year and at the end of the year they still ride fast. These bearing last forever I just buy a new set every year cause who doesnt like new stuff. I have given used sets to my friends and Im sure they still roll. If you dont have a whole lot of cash I would still say wait and save your money for Bones® Swiss Bearings. The investment is will worth it.— Andrew “Andrew”
I got a set of bones reds off my mate second hand and have lasted me almost two years, only now they are starting to fail. For how long they last and for how smooth they are they're amazing, well worth the investment.
Thanks for writing. Glad you had a good experience. We've built REDS to be easy to clean and re-lube. Go here to see how.— Jack “Jacko”
I set up the new extended race bearings and they pretty much make every bearing you make useless.......
Tightened down harder than I ever have, and they run forever.
not sure how they'll hold up but I expect well.....
Take it to the traditional market before someone else does....one of the best products I've seen out of Powell.
PS bring back ditchtech and do not publish.— Jef “Choy”
I've skated since a kid, but never too serious, I just like to putt around. Yesterday was the first time I assembled my own entire board with bones swiss bearings……. it felt like the first time in my life that I was cruising on the beach like someone should be.— Marko
I have ridden Bones Bearings for well over 25 years! I have set of Bones Ceramics that are over 20 years old and still going strong! I just contacted customer service and you guys are incredible.— Joel “Slippahjoe” Nonaka
The best bearings and customer service in the industry and I will never switch and recommend Bones Bearings 100 Percent!
Thank you so much and ALOHA!
I'm 37 years old and I've been skateboarding for decades. In all that time I've been through countless sets of different bearings, but once I locked onto a set of Bones Swiss my skateboarding took on a life of its own. Saying these bearings are fast is an understatement, the shear quality shows time after time without fail. You want the best? Better get Bones Swiss.. Proven long lasting quality. Don't take my word for it, get a set...— Matthew Brazier
I literally came here just because i spun my old bones bearings, that i hadnt touched in years, and they spun so incredibly good. incredible isnt even the word for it. they literally spin so good that it like defies logic. i dont understand how they are so friction-less. words cant describe how much better they are than all other companies. i would never use any other company since i first tried them 15 years ago. i think my bearrings are like bones precisions from like 11 years ago and they are better than they were new. everytime they get rusted from rain skating, they just get rebroken in after a day of skating. i swear they get better with time. never seen anyone break them, or ruin them, even from the roughest or rainiest skating.— mike
I purchased swiss bones ceramics way back in the day before they adopted the "skate rated" scale, I was about 14 at the time of purchase, I'm now 30 years old and that exact same set of bearings is in my current setup, and even after punishing them with sand, water, mud, minimal servicing and everything else they still spin like a dream. Worth every penny, I cant tell you how many other brands I have tried and blown out before trying these. Still going after 16 years!!!— Nate “Phazr”

bones are the best bearings you could ever get smooth ride nice sound and a nice set all together don't think by the bones— Randall “Greeny” Brown, @skate_crew_910
I started skating in 1999 at the age of 9 and decided to buy my first set of Bones Swiss on my first trip to the US in 2003.— Greig Mitchell
It's now 2015, I'm 25 years old and I'm still riding on those very bearings that I bought over 12 years ago and they perform just as well!
Bones Bearings will always be number 1 in my books!
I started skateboarding back in 94. My first set of Bones were Reds for $15. Greatest bearing for the money. After years of skating those (which I still have) I upgraded to Bones Swiss (we called them "Blacks") and rolled them hard. I'd guess at least through three sets of wheels. The year was 2003 and I heard of these Bones Super Swiss Six. I bought them and set them in a set of Bones 58mm Sword and Skull wheels. Dude... It's 2015 ad I still have both the Swiss Sixes and the wheels. I'm a bit older now so I rip a cruiser down a couple blocks to the beach and I still use the Super Sixes. I took the shield off, cleaned all the dirt out of them and used the Speed Cream to lube them up, and those dang bearings still roll just as fast and as hard as when I took them out the box over a decade ago. Some serious bearings man. No joke. The saying goes, "Skate or Die". Thanks to Bones, I can skate until I die (with the same set of bearings).— Jordan S
