608 ball bearings at der-rollenshop.de
Almost all inline skates are equipped with a standard 608 ball bearing.
Possible manufacturers here are: Wicked, TwinCAM, Bones, Rollerblade or K2, to name but a few.
These bearings are usually matched to the skate and only need to be replaced if they are defective or you have special requirements for the bearings, such as that they should be
rust-free, so that they can be used in the rain.
When it comes to increasing the speed of your skates, new and better inline skate wheels have a much greater effect.
A replacement (especially with new ball bearings) is not necessary. Even if the running performance of 608 standard bearings decreases over time, they do not necessarily have to be replaced.
Cleaning is often sufficient. It should be noted that not all bearings can be opened for cleaning.
If even cleaning won't helpf, it is time for a new set of bearings.
As all 608 bearings have the same dimensions, you can choose from our full range of 608 bearings.
For example, we recommend the SKF-Race ABEC5 ball bearing. This is one of the fastest steel bearings on the market at a very interesting price.
