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!— Geoff
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!— Topher, CoW Longboarding
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.— Tolga “TDAWG”
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!— Michael
Got my first set of Bones REDS and they are frickin amazing! GO REDS!!!— Matt “The Great”
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— Jonathan “Frosty” Webb
Fucking fast... no other feeling just burning down a hill with the ceramics!— Al Currence
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.— ian “malango” cassinera
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!— Connor
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.— Mikeas
Bearings are amazing.— bailey domangue
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.— Will
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!— ethan
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 ;).— Junelle
