No words can truly describe how awesome these guys are, nothing is too much trouble. Their customer service, delivery and general banter is off the scale.
I recently got back into this great lifestyle and totally addicted once again.(See attached photo)
Matt is a great guy who has offered me sound advice and can easily empty my bank account within minutes.
Just ordered another deck to go with my growing collection. Keep up the great work.
If you have a problem, you know who to call.. the V Team.. cue 80's music....although Matt's van is white...not black.

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.

For a step up with better materials, finish and posh laser etching, check out Bones Super Reds! You can also see the difference between all the Bones Bearings here.


  • 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

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!
