Our Black series and ceramic bearings are made from high-grade steel and polished to perfection, ensuring they provide top-notch performance.

    Bont's roller skate bearings are tested not only by our professional roller derby and roller skating teams but also by inline skaters who have set world records using our bearings. We pay meticulous attention to detail when constructing our bearings, so you can trust that you're getting the highest-quality product.

    When you choose Bont, you're choosing roller skate bearings that are designed to provide unparalleled speed, precision, and durability. Whether you're a quad, roller skate, or roller derby skater, our bearings will help you perform your best.

    ABEC Rating for Roller Skate Bearings

    If you're looking for the best roller skate bearings, you've probably come across the ABEC rating system. ABEC stands for Annular Bearing Engineering Committee, and it's a way of measuring the precision of bearings used in various applications, including roller skates.

    The ABEC rating for roller skate bearings ranges from 1 to 9, with 9 being the highest precision. However, it's important to note that the ABEC rating doesn't necessarily indicate the overall quality of the bearing, but rather its precision.

    ABEC 5 bearings are a common choice for recreational roller skaters. They provide good speed and durability without breaking the bank. ABEC 7 bearings are a step up in precision, making them a popular choice for competitive skaters or those who want a smoother and faster ride. However, it's worth noting that the ABEC rating system is not standardized across all manufacturers. Some brands may use their own rating system, or even exaggerate the ABEC rating on their bearings. So, while the ABEC rating can be a helpful starting point in choosing roller skate bearings, it's not the only factor to consider.

    At Bont, we believe that the best roller skate bearings are those made with high-quality materials and precise manufacturing processes. That's why our bearings undergo rigorous testing and are made with the highest quality materials, resulting in bearings that provide maximum speed, precision, and durability.

A Bont roller skate bearing press is a useful tool designed to make it easier to install and remove bearings from your Bont roller skate wheels, as well as other inline skate wheels, skateboard wheels, and scooter wheels. The press typically consists of a frame and two or more rods that apply pressure to the bearings and push them into or out of the wheel.

    Using a Bont bearing press can help prevent damage to your Bont bearings or wheels during the installation or removal process, and it can save time and effort compared to more manual methods, such as using a hammer or pliers. With a Bont bearing press, you can quickly and easily get your bearings in and out of your wheels, ensuring that your Bont skates or other equipment are always in top condition for optimal performance.

    Bont 608 Bearings: Precision and Performance for Roller and Quad Skate Bearings

    As a roller or quad skater, you know that every component of your gear can affect your performance on the rink or the street. That's why Bont offers top-quality 608 bearings that are designed to deliver precision and performance, no matter what your skating style or level.

    608 bearings are the most popular type of roller and quad skate bearing, used not only in roller skates but also in inline skates, skateboards, and scooters. However, not all 608 bearings are created equal. Cheap 608 bearings may use softer metal that warps under load, lack a polished inner race, and be packed with grease instead of light racing oil. This can lead to reduced performance and even damage to your equipment.

    With Bont 608 bearings, you can be sure that you're getting the highest quality materials and manufacturing processes, resulting in bearings that are built to last and provide maximum speed and precision on the rink or the street. Don't settle for subpar bearings - upgrade to Bont and experience the difference for yourself!

    Bont Ceramic Roller Skate Bearings: Top-Grade Performance

    If you're looking for the best roller skate bearings money can buy, look no further than Bont's ceramic bearings. While ceramic bearings are known for their exceptional performance, not all ceramic roller skate bearings are created equal. Cheap ceramic bearings may not use high-grade ceramic balls, fail to polish the inner race, and can even be slower than a steel 608 bearing.

    At Bont, we use only top-grade ceramic balls and employ advanced manufacturing techniques to create roller skate bearings that deliver unparalleled speed and precision. Our ceramic roller skate bearings are designed to outperform and outlast the competition, giving you the edge you need to excel in your sport.

    Not only are our ceramic roller skate bearings of top-grade performance, but they also offer several advantages over traditional steel bearings. Ceramic bearings are lighter, harder, and more resistant to corrosion and wear than steel bearings. They also generate less heat and friction, resulting in increased speed and durability.

    Bont is proud to offer a premium ceramic bearing that doesn't compromise on quality or performance. Upgrade to Bont ceramic roller skate bearings and experience the ultimate in speed and precision for your skates, inline skates, skateboards, or scooters.

    Similar to the 688 skate bearings, the 167 bearings are lightweight and spool up quickly for fast acceleration. However, they differ in their axle hole size, which is specifically designed to fit high-end roller skate plates.

    At Bont, we understand that every component of your roller skates can impact your performance on the rink. That's why we've developed top-quality 167 roller skate wheel bearings to ensure that your skates are operating at their best. Don't settle for subpar wheel bearings - upgrade to Bont and experience the difference for yourself!

    Swiss Bearings

    Swiss roller skate bearings are high-precision bearings that are designed to provide smooth and fast rolling for roller skaters. While the name may suggest that they are made in Switzerland, most Swiss bearings are actually made in China, although they are manufactured to strict quality standards to ensure consistent performance and durability.

    Originally, Swiss bearings were indeed made in Switzerland, but over time, the term "Swiss" has become more of a style or quality descriptor rather than an indicator of the bearings' country of origin. As a result, many high-quality bearings that meet the precision standards of Swiss bearings are marketed and sold as "Swiss" bearings, regardless of where they are made.

    Despite their higher price tag, many roller skaters prefer Swiss bearings due to their smoothness and speed, which can be especially beneficial for competitive skaters. Ultimately, the choice of which bearings to use is a matter of personal preference and budget, but Swiss bearings are definitely worth considering for skaters looking to maximize their performance on the rink or on the street.
