ABEC 5 Bearings (set of 16)
ABEC5 Bearings (set of 16)
A full set of ABEC Rated Bearings.
These bearings are okay for most skaters - however not skate rated - i.e. not been subject to lateral / axial (sideways) impact or movement. As you skate, learning side to side slows bearings down - friction on the inner race and shield causes the bearings to flex and slow. This is because the bearing cage is not designed for roller skate use with axial movement.
Skate Rated Bearings offers skaters a reinforced ball bearing cage, suited for roller skate use.
