    These will go on my Madrid Trapstar with 50/20 PNL trucks and RADvantages. i would use these bearings over others because im 99% sure that they will make me more aero so i can win every event. They will probably make me stronger as-well so i can beat up that kid Jimmy for stealing my lunch money at school. I will also use these magnificent bearings to destroy the patriarchy and end global warming at the same time."

  • Zealous Ceramic Bearings review: Game Changer

    Zealous longboards released their long awaited hybrid bearings, at a killer price.

    I've been a fan of the Biltin bearing design since 2008, one issue I always had was durability.
    The metal shield left a gap between itself and the inner race, so that they'd always get dirty too fast.

    My solution was to remove all the shields and replace them with rubber seals, it helped a lot and I carried this on for years.

    Then Zealous bearings hit the market, at nearly half the price of Biltins.

    Instead of wasting my time and money with Biltin upgrades, I jumped onto the Zealous bandwagon full time.
    I found that after a good skate in the wet they'd normally be ok, sometimes I might have to toss out 2-4, but I'd still have the rest to pool from for my other setups.

    Here's what our customer had to say about Zealous
    Monkey ~ "So quick to change...... Never drop your spacers or speed rings in the dirt or grass again (that always wound me up haha) The seals on them are very tight, and they seem to keep dirt and water out better than set lasted me through winter."

    Fin ~ "With built in spacers and speed ring there no more messing about. just put them in wheels and bolt them on and skate."
    Read all the reviews here.

    Now fast forward to 2015 and Zealous have released their first hybrid bearing.
    I write hybrid, because they feature ceramic balls, housed within a steel outer and inner race, so that the balls are impossible to rust, meaning you can skate rain and shine.IMG_4012[1]

    Another benefit of ceramic balls is that they're extremely hard, so that they crush dirt that would otherwise damage softer steel balls.

    Instead of the usual grease found in the normal Zealous offering, the Hybrid's feature a ridiculously smooth lubricant, so that you can push and roll even easier than before.

    I thought I'd put them to test and rode them for the 13 mile #BristolBoardMeeting distance skate, straight out of the packet they offered no resistance and I was tearing away ahead of the pack with a silent ride, while others were left with their rattling bearings eating some dust ;)


    The integrated washer and spacer design make them ideal for pumping and sliding, so that they don't wear out from heavy sideloads.

    So now I start the slow process of replacing my steel sets of Zealous with ceramic ones in my setups, no rush for now, at least they're finally out.
