Product Description

FITS 10MM AXLES ONLY!

The bearing behind the Official Downhill Speed World Record – 80.83 mph by Mischo Erban!

Breakthrough self-aligning design corrects for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness.

More than two years in development, Seismic Tekton™ bearings feature wide, flat contact surfaces at the ends of integrated, custom-machined half-spacers. The broad flanges square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels - correcting for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness.

The Tektons literally block themselves from sitting or rocking out of alignment, so they stay straighter than any other bearing system ever. Your wheels roll faster with better control, while the bearings last longer and stay quieter.

Other features include: ABEC-7 rating, steel balls, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and a proprietary lubricant combining both oil and grease.

The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination. On the side opposite the flange, the inner race extends 0.5mm to form a thin integrated washer. No bearing spacers, axle washers, or World Record budgets required!

  • One (1) set of eight (8) Seismic Skate Systems Tekton Bearings from Seismic
  • Rating: ABEC 7
  • Industry standard size: 608 with a 10mm core, 22mm outer diameter, and 7mm width

How to Buy Skateboard Bearings

What size skateboard bearings do I need for my skateboard wheels?

All skateboard bearings are the same size, so you don't need to worry about size when selecting bearings. However, the ABEC rating denotes the quality of materials and precision used in manufacturing the bearing. Higher rated bearings are higher quality.

Skateboard bearings are used to mount the skateboard wheels to the skateboard axle. Skateboard bearings are all the same size and will fit any skateboard wheel that Warehouse Skateboards sells.

While they do not vary in size, they do vary in quality. The rule of thumb tends to be that the more expensive the skateboard bearings, the higher the quality. Cheaper bearings are typically made of lower quality materials, which can get deformed or break completely under the pressure of skateboarding. Inexpensive bearings may also not be sealed as well, resulting in dirt and debris in your bearings that will slow your board down dramatically. The more expensive skateboard bearings are sealed, with higher precession machining, and higher-quality metals. They will remain fast and precise over time with proper maintenance.

ABEC ratings

Most bearings are measured by an ABEC rating. The higher the ABEC rating, the more accurate and precise the bearing will be. This rating system includes grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. The closer you get to an ABEC 9 rating, the faster you will go and the less friction you will have when skateboarding.

ABEC 1 skateboard bearings tend to be the least expensive, most crude, and least precise.
ABEC 3 skateboard bearings tend to be inexpensive and do not roll very smoothly or quickly.
ABEC 5 skateboard bearings are the norm in skateboarding. With this rating you get a good amount of speed at an average cost.
ABEC 7 skateboard bearings are very fast and smooth and tend to be slightly more expensive.
ABEC 9 and higher skateboard bearings are extremely fast and are used more for downhill skating and skaters that want to go insanely fast.

Many companies do not use the ABEC rating scale, such as Bones Bearings. Bones Bearings uses their own rating system known as Skate Rated. These bearings do not follow the ABEC ratings because they are superior in quality and the ABEC rating ignores many quality factors in which Bones Bearings prides itself.
