I'm buying a new skateboard.?
I just wanted to know about the different numbers about the ABEC rating and what they mean. Are they important?

simply put, the higher the rating, the better the bearings (the part that helps your wheels roll freely). but i think the ratings are under lab conditions so in real world most likely you wont feel the difference much. just try to keep your bearings clean and dry and you should have no problem. i mean im lazy and barely clean mine and sometimes roll through shallow puddles and my bearings still roll fine.
dont worry too much about abec rating
