The Bont FX1 wheel is great for roller derby or indoor rink skating. It is one of the only wheels on the market that uses the smaller 688 or 167 bearings rather than the traditional 608 skate bearing. This saves 12 grams per bearing and a whopping 192 grams (6.8oz) on a set of skates. That is a pretty huge weight saving. Not only that but mini bearings also spool up faster than 608 bearings getting you up to speed sooner.
Bont has a long history of roller skate wheel production and the FX1 is an excellent wheel that is suited for general skating or roller derby bouts. It could also be used for outdoor skating but it is not a dedicated outdoor roller skate wheel. This wheel can be used on all brands of skates if you are looking to buy these wheels to upgrade the wheels that came with your skates, they are a great choice. Try some today!
