Seismic 8mm Tekton "Performance Skateboard Bearing System" Bearings
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.
The bearing behind the Official Downhill Speed World Record - 80.83 mph by Mischo Erban!
Breakthrough self-aligning design corrects for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness. Integral spacers end in wide, flat flanges that square up and self-stabilize inside your wheels. This means superior alignment and less internal friction, so your bearings last longer and your wheels roll faster with better grip.
Wheel Bearings - Tekton ABEC-7 - Set of 8.
Set of eight (8) bearings with integral flanged half-spacers.
The bearing behind the Official Downhill Speed World Record – 80.83 mph by Mischo Erban!
Breakthrough self-aligning design corrects for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness.
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: ABEC-7 rating, steel balls, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and a proprietary lubricant combining both oil and grease.
The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination, and it’s 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!

They are alright. I don't think they are worth $30. I found them to be pretty fast but quite chattery, overall they are ok I wouldn't buy them again. I would recommend getting zealous, I've been on the same set for a year and a half and they still haven't let me down I just wanted to experiment but I can't beat my silent, fast, and smooth zealous
