May 11, 2007, Newsletter Issue #65: ABEC Bearings Rating

Tip of the Week

You may notice that some skateboard bearings have an ABEC rating that refers to the bearings precision. The rating was developed not for skateboards, but for machines, so many manufacturers don't even bother with the ABEC rating. The ABEC numbers range from 1-9 using odd numbers only. An ideal rating for skateboards is between 3 and 5.
