The story of Ceramic Super RED is simple. Take the superior steels used in our Super REDSâ„¢ and swap the steel balls for grade 5, silicone nitrade, hot isostatically pressed ceramic balls and you have Bones Ceramic Super REDSâ„¢. Bones Ceramic Super REDSâ„¢ are lighter and provide faster acceleration because the balls weigh much less. They create less friction and are thus faster than Super REDSwith or without lubricant! When you get dirt into your Ceramic Super REDSâ„¢, the ceramic balls will help to re-polish the steel races flat again, providing a self-healing benefit because ceramic balls are so much harder than steel. Finally, ceramic balls will not rust, further lengthening their life. Ceramic Super REDS use a bone colored shield with laser-engraved outer races for identification.

* Features grade 5, silicone nitride, hot isostatically pressed ceramic balls. * Higher quality steel races and a superior surface finish. * Single non-contact removable rubber shield for easy cleaning and less friction. * High speed nylon ball retainer for greater strength and speed. * Pre-lubricated with Speed Creamâ„¢ racing lubricant. * Skate Ratedâ„¢ clearances, tolerances, materials and lubricant provide the best performance and durability possible.

Best quality bearing you can buy without dropping a life savings for Ceramic Swiss'. I've only used one set in this amount of time. Whereas I would have easily been on my 2nd or 3rd set of standard reds in the same amount of time. Keep em clean and one kick-push is enough.

I bought these very shortly after they came out, no one knew anything about them.. I was in the market for some ceramics, and had the cash, so I gave them a shot. I'm glad I did. I've ridden the Swiss Ceramics and you can't tell the difference. MAYBE the break-in period. That's it. If you don't want to drop $100+ on the BSC's, grab these.. they're usually around $75 and welll worth it. I never stop rolling :)



Don't forget to clean and lube them once a month!
