50-something who never got into skateboarding - now with time on my hands I’ve discovered longboarding and stoked/chuffed with my purchase of an Arbor Axis 40” from Vandem. A fair price, quick delivery and no plastic wrapping.
Bones Reds Bearings
The ubiquitous Bones Reds have been around forever and are widely recognised as the bearing by which all others are measured. The standard Bones Red bearing is the cheapest skate bearing that Bones make, but it's still a great upgrade from the cheaper bearings that you'll get in a lot of complete setups.
All Bones skate bearings in the "Reds" series are made in China, and have a number of features that set them apart from the cheap skate bearings you'll find for a few quid less.
For starters, they feature no ABEC rating. Realising that the ABEC rating isn't really relevant to skateboard bearings, Bones Reds are instead marked as "Skate Rated."
What this really means is Bones have made the bearing fast enough for almost all skaters, affordable, pre-lubed with Bones Speed Cream, and made a solid bearing shield choice that makes a good compromise between roll speed, ease of cleaning and protection against dirt and moisture.
There are a lot of fake Bones Reds out there - especially on third-party platforms like Amazon, eBay and AliExpress. We are an authorised Bones Dealer and you can shop with us knowing that you are getting the genuine article. There is a difference - don't be fooled!
Each box of Bones Reds comes with a foil sticker so you can let everyone know what bearings you are running, and a note detailing maintenance and performance.
- Single, non-contact, removable rubber shield for easy cleaning and less friction
- High-speed Nylon ball retainer for greater strength and speed
- Pre-lubricated with Speed Cream racing lubricant
- Skate Rated clearances, tolerances, materials and lubricant provide the best performance and durability possible
- Set of 8 bearings

Bones Reds Bearings Reviews
Good honest retailer for skaters
They stock the right gear for serious skaters and know how to use it so they can give really useful positive advice. Top outfit.
Wheels and bearings
Wheels match the web site review in use. Pleased about that. Delivery was quick. Excellent all round.
Awesome service, these guys provide great advice and awesome service. Don’t buy skate gear anywhere else!!
Excellent service as always and a beautifully smooth ride with the new bearings
Always fantastic service!
Always fantastic service, great supplier for components... as they don't currently sell anything for the electric longboard community. So they're useful for things like wheel bearings, grip tape, etc. Fast delivery!

I bought my first board from these folks, at 46 years old nearly a year ago.
The service was first class. I found other places to be a tad patronising truth be told, maybe because of my age, maybe because of my ability or both.
Not here. They made me feel super...
