Bones Bearings And Skateboard Wheels

George Powell went on the search for better bearings in the mid 1980's. Lots of US based companies were closing down and the bulk of the skateboard bearings out there were coming from Japan. These were good, but George was after something faster and more durable.

His need to develop a better product lead him to a company in Switzerland and the development of the Swiss bearing. George worked very closely with the manufacturer to come up with a bearing that was much better suited to skateboard use then any others out there. 

Some of the developments they came up with were the removable shield that allowed you to clean and lubricate the bearing without having any tools. A lot of work was also done on ensuring the bearing had the ability to take vertical forces upon it and therefor be a durable and long lasting skate specific component.
