Believe it or not the advancement of skateboard bearings sizes technology has pushed the envelope of modern bearing development. Due to the extremely high loading experienced caused by modern street skateboarding, skateboard bearing development has increased over the past ten years. Now other bearing manufacturers in other industries, such as aerospace, automotive and machinery have learned a thing or two from the extreme skateboarder.
As a professional skateboard bearings manufacturer, we have two major advantages compared to other industrial counterparts. First, our skateboard bearings price is lower since we are the producer and we hope to expand sales through low profits and quickly gain more market share. Second, we can customize according to customers` requirements, including printing the client`s logo on the bearing shield and making customized packaging and non-standard sizes etc. You can learn more about us through the following content.
For standard skateboard bearings sizes which include the following types:
The first standard skateboard bearings sizes: Generally in the skateboard industry, 608 Skateboard Bearings (8x22x7mm) is the most popular and most widely used bearing. A vast majority of customers will choose this specification, but surly some other Ball Miniature Bearings with similar dimensions had been used in skateboard as well. 608 Bearings Inside Diameter - 8 millimeters Outside Diameter - 22 millimeters Width (unsealed) - 7 millimeters Width (two shields) - 7 Millimeters Typical Use - Commonly used for inline skate wheels, scooter wheels, and skateboard wheels, and sometimes also used for quad speed skate wheels.
The second standard skateboard bearings sizes: 627 Bearings Inside Diameter - 7 millimeters Outside Diameter - 22 millimeters Width (unsealed) - 7 millimeters Width (two shields) - 7 millimeters Typical Use - Often used in artistic and recreational quad roller skate wheels and sometimes also in quad speed skate wheels.
The third standard skateboard bearings sizes: 688 Bearings, Lately, the inline industry has been using "688" bearings, which are micro bearings, to use in wheels with microhubs. The rationale behind this is to get some weight reduction in the wheel and bearings, while still having fairly low rolling resistance. Inside Diameter - 8 millimeters Outside Diameter - 16 millimeters Width (unsealed) - 4 millimeters Width (two shields) - 5 millimeters Typical Use - Extra light "microbearing" that is the standard bearing used in some of the newer fitness and speed skate wheels.
The last standard skateboard bearings sizes: 698 Bearings with Inside Diameter - 8 millimeters, Outside Diameter - 19 millimeters and Width (unsealed) - 6 millimeters or Width (two shields) - millimeters Typical Use - Extra light "microbearing" that is the standard bearing used in some of the newer fitness and speed skate wheels.
There are many brands of bearings out on the market now and also with many material such Stainless Steel Bearings, although you should know that some are just bearings from the same factory, just labeled differently. Some brands are NMB, Powell Swiss (commonly called Bones bearings), GMN, Fafnirs, Black-Hole, YAKs, Twin-cam, M&A Smith Stealth, (Super) Sonic, Terminator, Hyper (Boss & RPM), FKD, NHBB, GMBH, DF, Grizzly.
