Ron's bearings rock!!

I have some Powell ceramics and Swiss 6's that are quite excellent as well.

In comparison to Ron's and Powell's top end bearings, every thing else sucks donkey balls.

There are some decent low price mid performance bearings out there which is good, but damn, after skating this long, I deserve the F-1 race car over the Neon.


I believe that even the guys at Bones bearings are aware of Ron's, hence the labyrinth seal they copied.
I got a chance to look at their bearing test stand where they do qc on the new batches they receive and most likely also test others.
Ron's gotta be the true king when it comes to skateboard bearing engineering I guess!

The extended center rings do not meet in most wheels (including ABEC 11) so that could be a concern.
They fit together fine in my Earthwing wheels.

I bet not. Cut one in half and prove it.

When I look inside the bearings, when the wheel is off the board, everything's connected and touching and stuff.

You're right though, they didn't touch in the middle of my Abec11 Noskoolz.

In the US - www.kickassbearings.com (its being rebuilt at the moment).

In Canada - www.speed-dealer.ca & www.speed-dealer.com (which are up,and functional, but also being rebuilt).
