Roller derby bearings are small components that allow roller skates to turn, spin and rotate on the axle of the wheel. They're essential in preventing metal from grinding on metal within the wheel, making them an important part of your skates, especially if you're skating competitively.
But how do you choose between the different skate bearings for sale?
Roller derby bearings come in a variety of materials to suit different types of skating and most skaters will have their own preferences. Riedell bearings use Swiss-made hardened chromium steel alloy for extra speed, strength and durability. Moto manufactures ceramic bearings that reduce friction and improve the power transfer. Bones Red offers performance at a fraction of the cost and Bionic bearings are lubricated with speed oil and therefore don't require a break-in period.
