How to Pick Skateboard Bearings | Custom Skateboard


Hey, what’s up, guys? We’re here to talk about bearings real quick. I got a Reds standard bearing here. All bearings are pretty much standard in the
skateboard world. Anytime you get a complete, or anytime you
buy a complete set of bearings, they will be standard. Their options range in price as far as quality
goes, but we carry, and we’ve been skating for a long time now, is the Reds from Bones. Bones also makes the Swiss and Swiss ceramic,
a very high-end bearing, a bearing more for someone who definitely takes care of their
things and doesn’t ride their board in the rain, sand, dirt, or dust. More of your older skaters will flock towards
the most expensive bearing. Most of your kids will run an inexpensive
bearing because they’re going to be going through them a lot faster and not doing the
maintenance on them. So, if you’re not planning to do maintenance
on them, I highly recommend not buying the expensive ones. Bearings are really simple. They are popped into the wheel. There’s 8 of them, 2 on either side of the
wheel. They slide easily onto an axle. Like I said, all standard. So, pretty much all you need to know when
buying bearings is that they’re pretty much standard.
