Description

The new Zealous bearings will make your friends jealous when you're beating them down the hill! The machined precision 8mm axle holes fit snug on the axle reducing slop. The Zealous bearings have green rubber inner and outer seals to keep dirt, debris, and thane out of the bearings. When testing the bearings are pre-lubricated with Archoil Nanoceramic Grease is a long-lasting grease that will break in after a session or two. The grease that Zealous uses helps eliminate friction over time and reduces corrosion on the inside of the bearings. We recommend trying out a set of the Zealous Bearings before you head out to your favorite hills.

Zealous's Description

Precision 8mm axle holes
.4045″ built in spacers
.5mm built in speedrings
Green rubber seals to keep dirt and debris on the outside of the bearing.
Lubed with Archoil Nanoceramic Grease
-The unique feature of our lubricant is how the nanoceramic compound fills in deformations or asperities in the bearing. These deformations cause friction and heat around them which hardens the nano-ceramic compound to that specific area. This micro coating is 5 times the hardness of the host alloy and has a molecular bond with the host metal, filling in all the asperities and eliminating friction over time.
-The coefficient of friction is the lowest in the field of Tribology at 0.003% creating a near frictionless surface. Mainly because the nanoceramic compound eliminates all asperities.
-Extremely low water washout
-Corrosion on the inside of the bearing is nearly eliminated.
Sold in sets of 8 bearings.

Been buying these bearings for ages now and they've absolutely never let me down! Somehow, even when abused to the worst treatment and never cleaned, they still manage to carry on rolling for me! I mean, of course, there's a limit, I've had many sets just rust and seize because I really just forget to clean and dry them out after a rain skate, but then they're so cheap I just grab another set!

There is no downside to these. Affordable, plus they have built-in speed rings and washers. favorite longboard purchase in the last month. I'm exclusively buying Zealous from here on out. seriously, they're so cheap, I can just replace these whenever I want.
Magnificent product

Great product! Great buying! I have them together with seismic speed vents, all I can say is hold on! They just roll and keep rolling, will eventually purchase the ceramics but until then be in awe of the stainless, don’t hesitate!

These bearings are better than reds. They are fast and you don’t need to take much care of them. It seems the more you use them the better they get. 👍

BETTER THAN REDS
on 2017-05-11
Hate to say it, but they are quieter, faster, and require less cleaning to keep that way than Bones Reds. With spacers built in you can't go wrong.
Fast
on 2016-12-24 Verified Purchase
Once they get a couple of break in runs they seem to run fast. I have had a couple of sets get a bit noisy, but overall great bearings for the price.
They're Great
on 2016-12-24 Verified Purchase
Fantastic bearings, very durable. The inbuilt spacers seem a tiny fraction too long because my wheel seems to be able to shift side to side a bit on them. Even so they still feel great and were easy to install. i recommend them.
Quiet
on 2016-12-23 Verified Purchase
They'll need about a 3-5 miles break-in to free wheel nicely but right out of the box they're ULTRA with great roll. I've spent a lot of money on ceramic bearings but for the money, these steel bearings are eye openers. I couldn't be happier with them for what I spent.

Better than Bones
on 2016-12-06 Verified Purchase
I have ridden bones bearing all my life. And the bone redz ceramic go just as fast as these, but cost 7 times more. For quality and price, these are the best. And you have fewer parts for easier use. Built in speedrings and spacers are amazing.

Zealous is the best bearing out there I wish they were around back in the late 80's when I started skating. It would be awesome if they made a 6 ball version.

Yeah They're Good
on 2016-09-09 Verified Purchase
My bones Reds got all whacky and these had 55 reviews, pretty much all positive, so I bought them. If you think this deal is too good to be true, it's not. Buy these bearings, you won't regret it--they're $14 for crying out loud.
Awesome!
on 2016-08-26 Verified Purchase
These have been replacing all my bones red. So much easier to just pop these in and make swapping wheels a breeze, not like it was a hassle before. But instead of dealing with separate speed rings and bearing spacers, it's all there.

My go-to bearing choice. They always ride smooth no matter how long you have them. Mine work good as new even after putting them to good use for about 6 months. Super fast and built-in spacers make setting up your board way fast. Would recommend for anyone.
Buy These Immediately...

There is no reason to buy any other steel bearing, and no reason not to upgrade crappy stock bearings to these. Best steel bearings on the market. At this price you just can't go wrong.

First off the beating your friends and making them jealous is completely true! These bearings are super fast and amazing for freeriding also. Highly recommend.
So far, so good:)

I currently have 9 different set-ups with 3 of them getting heavier use. I have been pretty satisfied with the Rush Ceramics on my go-to set-ups but enjoy trying out different items as often as I can afford. I can't help but notice all of the great reviews these Zealous bearings get every time I'm scrolling through the bearing options and have not committed to trying them until now. I recently purchased a set and installed them in a new set of wheels on my #1 go-to set-up. I have only had a couple of sessions on them but I am pleased with them thus far. They seem to roll smooth and quiet. I am looking forward to seeing how they hold up over time. In my opinion thus far, this could be the ideal bearing choice for most riders given its initial ride/feel and obviously its low price point:)

Zealous bearings can take a beating and keep going forever. I have ridden many sets of Zealous built-ins and they have been through water and some really gross road grime more times than I can count. Even nasty damp parking garages are no match for Zealous bearings. The shields and the lube are so good a light wipe with a cloth is all you need to keep them going for a very long time. When stacked against other bearings on much higher price levels, the Zealous have my vote every time.

I've ridden reds and tons of other bearings and I can say that zealous are better than all the others, they only get better with time as they break in, 11/10 buy now my dudes.
Way better than what they're selling for!
on 2016-03-14 Verified Purchase
There are ceramic bearings that you can get for almost five time the cost of these, and they may roll better, but these are absolutely fantastic! I rode my longboard, and then my friend's, and his felt so slow! They come in a tube all greased up for you, and the built-in spacers are fantastic to have. I have these bearings with 180mm Atlas Ultralight Trucks, and Abec 11 Bigzigs wheels. These are a match made in Heaven, and I've never ridden on a board smoother than mine! All the things listed above ad up, but it's worth it to spend your money on amazing products you'll enjoy rather than cheap ones that will never do your board justice.

I'd recommend these bearings to anyone, any skater, any day. Not having to deal with spacers or speed rings is huge for me. They took about 5 miles to break in, about half an hour of fast cruising. They feel faster and spin longer every day. The quality is high and the price is low. Doesn't get any better!

Currently using these trucks on two setups, and so far so good. As most reviews state, they may feel like they start kind of slow, but after a few hours of riding you start to feel comfortable. Build-in supports, universal color (sort of), smooth riding; make for an all around bearring useful to any setup. Buy an extra pair just to have em' incase a friend shows up. They'll love you! Heh

on 2016-01-14 Verified Purchase
At first, you'll feel like they don't work so well because they don't spin a lot. That's just because all the lube inside needs to thin out more. The built in spacers and double shields make these things king of rain boarding! That doesn't mean you dont have to wash them every now and then though.

I have these bearings on both my boards, and they are fantastic. They take quite a while to break in, but once they do they greatly out preform bone reds with spacers, and were a great price for what you get. the thicker fluid, keeps the bearings running well, even if they get wet, and they seem to last a very long time. Great purchase

I've had these bearings close to a year maybe even two and I'm now buying my second pair and a pair for my buddy. I've never had a problem with them! They run smoothly! A little slow at the beginning but that's due to there special lubricant that they have. I would challenge friends to see how far they can get off a single push and I would go on forever and they would be way behind me. Totally worth your money!
