Abec is a bearing quality rating. They go on odd numbers going 1-9. 1 is the worst and are cheaply made, 9 are insanly fast and expensive. 5 is the average so 7 will be a bit better and smoother but more expensive.

Abec number has nothing to do with speed or quality it just simply is a rating for arrangement of the balls inside.Source(s): I've skateboarded for 5 years
