Skateboard bearings play a pivotal role in the functional performance of your skateboard. Bearings can be steel, ceramic, titanium or a combination of materials. These are mounted inside of the wheels and onto the truck’s axle.
Generally, the higher the bearing’s abec rating, the longer they will last, thanks to the heightened “tolerance” rating it entails. The best way to guarantee a long lasting, fast spinning bearing is to properly maintain your bearings with either a grease or oil based lubricant.
