    "I've had these skateboard bearings for almost 6 years now and I absolutely love them! 🔥 It keeps my acceleration consistent while I'm pushing and my board runs smooth AF. Even when I take my board through some wet and dirt roads, it still runs perfectly because of these bearings. Pretty great overall. "

    "The Bronson G3s are seriously the best skateboard bearings! 👍 I got them for $21 and their the 2nd smoothest bearings behind the bones swiss ceramics and are even faster in my opinion. I normally re-lube any set of bearings that I purchase cause I find them to be slow most of the time but I didn't even have to do that with these bearings because they run pretty smoothly already and don't need to be cleaned all the time."

    "If you're wondering how to clean skateboard bearings, you won't have to worry about cleaning them with the Yellow Jackets. I bought a pair off of eBay and after of day of riding, I took the built-in rubber protectors off the bearings and added some isopropyl to make them spin longer. Been using them for a couple of weeks and haven't cleaned them yet but still rides pretty good."

    "Been skating for over 15 years. I've tried a lot, and I mean A LOT of skateboard wheels and bearings, and finally, I'm back and settled with the Super Reds. These bearing are legit. Most bearings are fast out of the box but these Super Reds can last years if you just maintain them properly from time to time."

    "Everybody needs to chill when comparing the best bearings for skateboard use. I know everybody loves Bones to the point where they worship them, but the Spitties do the job for me. Never had a flat spot even once while I'm riding."
