Are ABEC 11 real?
ABEC precision levels do indeed stop at level 9 (there is no ABEC 11 precision level). Any reference to ABEC 11 does not refer to an official precision or performance standard.
Is ABEC 7 or 9 better?
ABEC includes five tolerances classes: 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 with 1 being the widest and 9 the tightest. Thus, bearings with a higher ABEC rating have tighter tolerances, and that means better precision, higher efficiency, and the potential to accommodate applications requiring high speeds.
Does ABEC make a difference?
The higher ABEC classes provide better precision, efficiency, and the possibility of greater speed capabilities, but do not necessarily allow the components to spin faster.
Is ABEC 5 or 7 better?
ABEC 5 bearings allow for lesser friction while ABEC 7 bearings almost give the skater a ‘frictionless’ cruise. ABEC 7 bearings are manufactured with stricter tolerance and are more precise than ABEC 5 bearings.
Is there an ABEC 9?
The ABEC rating system includes grades 1,3,5,7, and 9. The higher the ABEC rating, the tighter the tolerances are, making the bearing a more precision part. High precision and small tolerances are required for bearings to function at very high RPM, in products like high speed routers that must spin at 20 to 30,000 RPM.
What is the fastest ABEC bearings?
How ABEC Ratings Work
- ABEC 1 is the most crude, the least precise, the most durable, and the cheapest.
- ABEC 3 is what most cheap complete skateboards come with, especially skateboards from China.
- ABEC 5 bearings are the norm in skateboarding.
- ABEC 7 bearings would be very fast and smooth, but very expensive.
What ABEC are Bones Swiss?
We are often asked, “What ABEC rating are your bearings?” The answer is that “Bones Bearings are Skate Rated™ not ABEC rated.” Even though Bones Swiss are the top rated bearing in skating, we don’t give them an ABEC rating.
What are 608 bearings?
The standard inline skates bearings have the designation “608”. The “608” means that the bearings are from the 600 series, with a 8mm inner diameter (the width of the hole, i.e., internal bore).
Are ABEC 3 bearings fast?
ABEC 3 bearings work for most skateboarding, but won’t roll very smoothly or fast. ABEC 5 bearings are the norm in skateboarding. You get a reasonable amount of speed, and at a reasonable cost. ABEC 7 bearings would be very fast and smooth, but very expensive.
What ABEC are Rollerbones bearings?
Rollerbones Bearings have a great roll for any surface, but they are extremely popular with outdoor roller skaters and skateboarders. They are smooth and silent. They do not have an official abec rating, but we would guess they are Abec-3 or Abec-5. Like most bearings, they are made in China.

What are ABEC bearings for skaters?
But skaters are often confused about what that means and how to get the best bearings for their board. ABEC stands for Annular Bearing Engineers’ Committee and is the U.S. method for rating the accuracy and tolerance of bearings. ABEC standards are set by the American Bearing Manufacturers Association .
What does ABEC rating mean on skateboard wheels?
Bearings are used for all kinds of things, not just skateboard wheels. The higher an ABEC rating, the more accurate and precise the bearing is. When companies make bearings, sometimes they cheaply slap them together, and sometimes they very carefully design and assemble them with as little space as possible between the parts.
Is a higher ABEC rating better for bearings?
The urban legend is that the higher the ABEC rating, the better and faster the bearings. But as is the case with most myths and legends, this one is for the most part nonsense. The acronym ABEC stands for “Annular Bearing Engineers Committee,” and is a standard for how fine the rolling elements are.
What type of bearings should I get for my Skateboard?
ABEC 3 is what most cheap complete skateboards come with, especially skateboards from China. ABEC 3 bearings work for most skateboarding, but won’t roll very smoothly or fast. ABEC 5 bearings are the norm in skateboarding. You get a reasonable amount of speed, and at a reasonable cost.
