All Better Bearings are above an ABEC 7 rating (ABEC rating...it's a thing), not so much for the speed, but for the level of attention and quality during manufacture...which as it turns out, means they'll go faster too!
They're reliable and longer lasting...which means you spend more time skating, and less time mucking around with your gear.
Easy to clean and maintain, Better Bearings have really easy to remove shields, which makes cleaning easier!
We are concentrating on two of the United Nations Sutainable Development Goals.
We are working on;
5. Gender Equality.
