Skateboard Bearings: Built-In Bearings Skateboard

A selection of skate and longboard bearings from brands we know and love, like Bones, Zealous, Bronson and Sabre. Tried and tested for durability and performance!

Switching your bearings out for something faster will make a big difference to your board if you're running on an old crusty set, but if your bearings are running good and your board still isn't fast enough, we recommend some bigger wheels to speed things up instead.

We only sell decent aftermarket skate bearings, with features like rubber labyrinth shields for easy cleaning, and high-quality steel or ceramic races and balls.

These bearings will fit in any skateboard or longboard. You'll notice that some bearings are "Built In" - this means that they have built in bearing spacers and speed rings, which in our eyes is a huge advantage for all kinds of skateboarding and longboarding.

Built in Bearings

We reckon everyone who rides any kind of longboard should be on built-ins!

They resist side loads way better - side loads happen when you slide or landing a bit wonky (ie often!)

They are much less fiddly to install, with no tiny washers of spacers to line up.

And to top it off, they are just as easy to clean and maintain!

Do ABEC Ratings matter?

If you've read the huge Guide on ABEC Ratings then you'll have an appreciation that ABEC ratings don't matter as much as you might think when it comes to skateboarding and longboarding, but decent materials and shielding make all the difference.

We also recommend that you look after your bearings with a clean every now and then. Cleaning your bearings is the easiest and cheapest way to keep your bearings running fast!
