July 5, 2009 · Filed Under Longboard 


Many off the rack longboards come with cheaper bearings. Typically you will see Abecs on there which are cheap and saved the company money. That is why most serious riders build their own. No problem though if you are trying to upgrade your board. You are going to save yourself on maintenance in the long run. The Powel-Peralta bearings offer a removable panel. You can simply remove and regrease as needed to keep them in good working order. You may have to pay a little more, but you are not going to need to replace them nearly as much as other brands. There are some new competitors out there, so take a look at those as well when looking for longboard bearings.
