Understanding ABEC Ratings for Skateboard Bearings

One of the first things to consider when choosing bearings is the ABEC rating. The ABEC system rates bearings on a scale of 1 to 9, with higher numbers indicating better precision and tighter tolerances. Trinity Bearings offers both ABEC-5 and ABEC-7 options, making it easy to choose bearings with a mid to high-level rating for your needs.

ABEC-5 Bearings: A Budget-Friendly Option

For beginner to intermediate riders or anyone on a budget, Trinity’s ABEC-5 bearings are an excellent choice. These bearings feature double rubber shields and a deep groove ball design that provides a smooth ride at an affordable price point. Although they’re rated lower in performance than the ABEC-7 version, a more controlled speed can be beneficial for beginners and riders who don’t require a high-performance bearing. Trinity’s ABEC-5 bearings provide a stable and controlled pace, that can be really helpful to beginners as they work on improving their technique.

When starting out, beginners may not want to generate too much speed whilst having a go on ramps and other obstacles at the skatepark. A more deliberate speed is easier to control and helps beginner riders build confidence and develop skills. However, it’s essential to find a balance so that the ride isn’t too slow that it becomes low-functioning or boring. Trinity’s ABEC-5 bearings strike that perfect balance between speed and control, making them ideal for beginners.

ABEC-7 Bearings for High Performance

Intermediate and advanced riders looking to take their performance to the next level might consider upgrading to the ABEC-7 option. These premium bearings are designed for optimal performance and feature the same double rubber shields and deep groove ball design as the ABEC-5, but with even tighter tolerances and higher precision. With their faster speed and smoother ride, these bearings are ideal for riders who want to push themselves to the next level and challenge their skills on more advanced terrain such as street obstacles and transition riding.
