Bronson Speed Co Bearing Detail

Bronson Speed Co. Bearings Review

When the new park opened I decided it was time for a new setup giving me a chance to finally try out the Bronson Speed Co bearings. Anyone who has been keeping up with skate news has bound to have heard of them and i’ll be surprised if you’re not at least a little interested. For years now Bones have been a solid choice for bearings (Namely the Bones Reds) but if these are as good as they claim to be, I doubt you’ll ever use a set of Reds again.

The Bronson Speed Co G3 Bearings claim to be the perfect skateboarding with a range of crazy technologies going into them.

  • Deep Groove Raceways – The balls roll deep in raceway channels which reduces side impact damage & breakage.
  • Straight Edge Frictionless Shields – These shields are pop off resistant and hold oil in while keeping dirt and moisture out making them easy to clean.
  • Micro Groove Raceway Surfaces – Linear micro-groove surfaces improve bearing lubrication, speed and spin.
  • Max Impact Cage Design – Non-distortion custom cage keeps the balls precision spaced & oil circulating.
  • Balls Out Technology – Eliminates shield and cage contact on impact for a go fast, stay fast bearing.
  • High Speed Ceramic Oil – Nano-ceramic compounds for wear protection – moisture, rust, corrosion resistant.
  • Factory Fresh Quality – Nitrogen filled shrink wrap, reduces metal & oil oxidation until ready to be ridden. Means that you can leave these bearings in storage for years and they will still be factory fresh when you finally open them.

If that bulleted list doesn’t make you tingle you obviously have something wrong with you. It takes a special bearing to last a few years without seizing or popping and by the sounds of it these bearings should tick every box.

They come in an amazing metal presentation tin with a slide off lid. Inside of that you have the 8 bearings as you can expect. Then Bronson are kind enough to supply you with a full set of 4 spacers for inside the wheels and 8 washers as you’ve probably already lost these before. The bearings themselves have bright orange shields, one with a black stripe on it to indicate which way around it goes in the wheel.

I’ve been skating them for a few weeks now and they’re definitely the best bearings I’ve skated. Before these I was skating Flip HKD Abec 5’s and I loved those too, much nicer than Bones Reds (in my opinion) and a little cheaper too. Straight out the tin they roll forever and are super smooth and quiet. Even now they are still silent when rolling around at the park, making a nice change from the usual racket put out from broken in bearings.

The park at the moment is surrounded by mud as they were trying to grow some grass, meaning the board has landed in there plenty of times. Even then, the shields have managed to keep all of the dirt out so they are still running as smooth as ever.

For the £29.99 price tag I can definitely recommend them. You may be paying twice as much as you would for a set of Bones Reds but the quality jump is much more. I’m sure they could easily outlast them too making them a very worthy investment.

You can buy the Bronson Speed Co G3 Bearings from Aylesbury Skateboards online and in store now.

Polar Summer 15 Decks

NOW IN: Polar Skate Co. Summer 2015 Drop 2

The new Polar Skate Co. goods are in! We are extremely excited to finally be stocking Polar apparel alongside some of the new hardware as they are one of our favourite skateboarding companies.

We also managed to get our hands on a few of the new decks from the collection and they are definitely some of the most beautiful decks Polar have made. Polar decks have some of the best shapes out there and are definitely built to last. We’ve skated plenty of them and have nothing bad to say. We have limited stock of both the apparel and decks and its likely that once they’re gone, they’re gone. Polar are on absolute fire recently with their designs and we can safely say that we support them 100%.

The decks we stock (from left to right in the image below) are:

Mother Collective

Mother Collective is a new board brand straight out of Ohio recently created by Jake Johnson, Tyler Bledsoe, and Gilbert Crockett. We have been lucky enough to get a few of the boards from their spring/summer 1.3 drop in stock and they are looking rad. Sizes range from 8.0″ up to 8.5″.

Mother boards use PS Stix wood for all of their boards and not just the Pro models, meaning you’re getting quality you can trust with any deck you pick up from them. All of the boards have “Hand Crafted by PS Stix. Made In Mexico.” printed on the top just to make things more legit.

The shop favourite has got to be the Jake Johnson Catherine (one) in red. The deep red of the bottom ply stands out so much on our shop wall. All of the decks come with a Mother logo sticker so that’s pretty great too.

You can check out our range of Mother Collective boards on our store website Aylesbury Skateboards. All decks retail at £54.99.
