Description

Swiss 6 longboard skateboard bearings are unique design that feature six larger diameter balls instead of the seven balls used in most 608 bearings.

The advantage creates a quicker acceleration, greater strength and durability. Featuring the same Swiss-manufactured components as the rest of the Bones Swiss line, these are some of the highest quality bearings on the market, ever...

Quick acceleration on the Super Swiss
on 2020-08-18 Verified Purchase
I've used these for a long time and they are right up there at the top. Tough and quick acceleration. In this case you get what you pay for.
very VERY fast!

These have all the legendary speed and durability of their 8 ball cousin, but the six ball design gives it that little extra bit of initial acceleration. The REDZ version of these bearings have the same properties, but these are more consistently fast and more durable. Also, for me, this is the only bearing that spins freely no matter how much I crank down the wheel nut. By spin freely, I mean when you can get the wheel to spin just by rocking your board back and forth.

precision theory
on 2020-04-24
I suspect that these bearings feel a lot less sloppy in a slide than any normal 7 ball bearing from bones or any other company because even if the manufacturing tolerances are the same, having three pairs of balls (6 total) 180 degrees from each other means that any applied perpendicular force in one spot does not force the balls away from their position in the bearing race and create extra friction as much as it would in a 7 ball bearing, but is met with opposing forces that are more in line with the original force applied to the bearing. ..ie. this is why a triangle is more structurally rigid than a square, pulls and pushes in any direction do not want to bend any joints in the triangle, and why the 2 equilateral triangles made by the balls in this bearing contribute to more roll speed under torque... IT'S BETTER ENGINEERING!

Best bearing I have tested
on 2015-08-08
I have tested a lot of bearings and these have held up the best over the years of riding. One pair I have still rides like new and they are going on year 9 in riding. Just keep your bearings clean and lubed and they will keep on rolling. I prefer these over the swiss ceramic and super reds. they roll with less friction when going for long distances.
