Description

The 6-Ball Tekton is constructed with fewer, larger balls than ordinary 608Z bearings. This means less ball-raceway surface contact area, less friction, quicker acceleration, higher speed, and longer life.

Introducing the newest bearing innovation from Seismic: The Tekton Performance Skateboard Bearing System! The integrated spacer in the Tekton Bearings is self-aligning, therefore making sure that you get a proper spin without having to worry about how precise your bearing seats or axles are. The Tekton Bearing is designed to correct small (but substantial) flaws in your axles and bearing seats to allow your wheels to spin faster and maintain more of their intended characteristics. The widened lip at the connection point between the bearings is the key to this design. By having a larger and more precise contact patch between the two bearings, you can be sure your wheels are performing to their full potential.

Seismic's Description

Wheel Bearings - Tekton™ 6-Ball - Set of 8.

Set of eight (8) bearings with integral flanged half-spacers.

Breakthrough self-aligning design corrects for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness.

The 6-Ball Tekton is constructed with fewer, larger balls than ordinary 608Z bearings. This means less ball-raceway surface contact area, less friction, quicker acceleration, higher speed, and longer life.

More than two years in development, Seismic Tekton bearings feature wide, flat contact surfaces at the ends of integrated, custom-machined half-spacers. The broad flanges square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels - correcting for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness.

The Tektons literally block themselves from sitting or rocking out of alignment, so they stay straighter than any other bearing system ever. Your wheels roll faster with better control, while the bearings last longer and stay quieter.

Other features include: advanced 6-ball construction,, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and top-shelf Japanese Kyodo grease.

The inner race is stepped between the bearing and the flange to save weight. On the side opposite the flange, the inner race extends 0.5mm to form a thin integrated washer. No bearing spacers, axle washers, or World Record budgets required!

These Seismic bearings have an amazing durability. I typically go through a pair of bearings in the summer due to different riding conditions and disciplines I put my bearings through. It's been a year and a half since I bought these for my LDP setup and I'm still amazed at how they're rolling. I've only wiped the surface dirt off (carefully) to keep clean and have never had issues with them. Great product.

Definitely a fast, quiet, and long lasting bearing for sure. I Love these for downhill, with some fat wheels. 10/10 worth it, Seismic won't disappoint.
Nice and solid bearing

So far 0 issues with them, and so worth the money not to have to do worry about spacers if I ever do any wheel work
