We've got a brand new addition to our hardware cabinet for all the tech nerds: top of the range skateboard bearings from the world's largest bearing manufacturer.
SKF Bearings are some of the best skateboard bearings in the game, but that's pretty unsurprising considering SKF is the world's largest bearing manufacturer. These legends have been producing precision bearings for high-end engineering use - including use in jet engines, high-performance cars, and wind turbines - since way back in 1907. That's well over a hundred years of experience so it's safe to assume they know what they're doing.
SKF's high-quality, precision skateboard bearings are specially engineered for lasting smoothness and durability with internal grease to minimise friction. What's more, they come in a fancy metal tin that looks sick, as well as helping to minimise plastic waste making them the perfect choice for all the eco warriors out there. They're even manufactured in Italy (you know, where they make all those nice cars) so they must be good. But, best of all, they're only £30. Bargain.
To top it all off, they've recruited one of the most stacked teams in skating right now. While they teamed up with Andrew Reynolds when they first tried to get into the skating game back in 2007, the team now features all-time greats like Oski Rozenberg, Ishod Wair, Louie Lopez, and Alexis Sablone, alongside new school legends, Kader Sylla and Beatrice Domond. Seeing as Oski was a pro engineer for Lurpiv, the fact SKF skateboard bearings have his seal of approval should be enough to tell you they're the real deal, and don't all the kids want to be like Kader these days?
That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to get your hands on some premium SKF skateboard bearings. Or, find out more about the latest product on the CSC Blog. Safe.
