Are Bones Bairings better than Abec?
- SSP Bowl DudeLv 71 decade agoBest Answer
The ABEC rating system is not to test every manufacturer’s bearings and proclaim them good or bad, but to establish dimensions, tolerances, geometry, and noise standards for bearings. The ABEC rating system includes grades 1,3,5,7, and 9. The higher the ABEC rating, the tighter the tolerances are, making the bearing a more precision part.
In other words, ABEC is a measure of the properties of bearings, some compainies use the ABEC ratings as a measure of speed or quailty, but that is not always true.
Bones, as well as some other companies that manufacture precision bearings, make all parts of the bearings specifically for skateboarding.Source(s): http://www.bonesbearings.com/gap/abec.html

this is how bearings are rated(by the way bones reds still have a abec number but they dont show it) theyre from least to greatest:
Abec 1 EX: walmart
Abec 3 EX: ninja 3
Abec 5 EX: Zoo York Midtown
Abec 7 EX: Bones Reds
Swiss EX: Lucky Swiss or Bones Swiss

I even have been skating maximum of my existence. And my very own opinion is sure you do choose a definite form of shoe to skate in case you care approximately your grip tape and the footwear you dont wana decrease to rubble skating with. in the experience that your on a funds and dont wanna spent alot of money on footwear then bypass to payless footwear and spend like 20 greenbacks on some airwalks. or in case you like the final bypass on your community skateshop and spot what they have on clearance. they have high quality footwear for like 30-35 greenbacks.
