All You Need To Know About Skateboard Wheel Bearings

If you’re a skateboarder, then you know that skateboard wheel bearings are essential for a smooth ride. But what do you need to know about skateboard wheel bearings?

What should I know about this?

The most important wheel bearing is the one that connects your skateboard wheels to your skateboard. This bearing is responsible for transferring all the force from your pushing into the skateboard wheels so they can spin.

Skateboard bearings come in a variety of sizes, but the most common size is 608. The 608 skateboard bearing is made up of an inner ring, an outer ring, and seven balls that rotate between them.
The balls are made out of steel and are very hard. The races (the inner and outer rings) are made out of harder materials like carbon or ceramic.

Altogether, these parts make a smooth spinning wheel that can take a lot of abuse!
