You have seen the video now you can buy the magic beans that helped Mischo do the unthinkable - 130km on a longboard.
You know the deal about the Tektons, you must, they are one of our best selling bearings. For those uninitiated, the bearing has a inner flange that is half a bearing spacer. What this does is align the bearings without the need of a bearing spacer. Basically corrects any flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter, and axle straightness. Your bearings will roll faster, longer and get longer use.
If the Tekton steel are so awesome, why do I need ceramic?
The Ceramic Tektons use black silicon nitrate balls that make the bearing lighter in weight and roll inside the casing with lower in friction. The result: , faster acceleration and a longer roll.
The harder balls have another advantage. Dirt, debris, and rust will get crushed, which polishes and cleans the steel raceways (casing). They also run cooler because the heat dissipates faster.
Seismic even claim they are rustproof! That is their claim not the opinion of Hopshop. We have not tested the bearings and are not providing a rust free warranty. If you ride you board in the rain, there is a greater chance of getting seized bearings. Maybe the ceramics lessens the chance. You'll have to try them to know for sure. Please note: Any bearing will seize if it is not properly maintained.
