Bearing Down on Skate Bearings

QHello, Bill! Have you heard of FAG bearings? Are they used for inline skating? Thanks! - Janis Hofmanis, Latvia

Hi, Janis: Yes, I've heard of FAG bearings. In fact, I used them many years ago. They were a quality alternative at a time when SKF was our preferred bearing. But I haven't heard anything about them for years and don't know if they are still being made, although it's possible they are being sold under another name.

If you're in the market for bearings, there's a lot to consider. These days, everybody makes a big deal about ABEC rating and wants ABEC 7s or better. But as far as I'm concerned, one of the most important things to consider is where the bearings are made. Bearings are a precision product, which need to be made with great attention to detail. That's why I prefer bearings made in Switzerland or Germany, countries with reputations for precision manufacturing.

Years ago, the bearing of choice was the pricey NMB ABEC 7. Then all of a sudden, they started seizing up on us. We couldn't understand what was going on until we heard that the company had shifted production to Singapore.

And don't think bearings don't make a difference in your skating. I remember back in 1989 when Stephan Whyte lined up at the World Championships on $1, bottom-of-the-line NSK bearings. When I heard about it, I made sure he got some quality bearings, and he went on to win both the 500 and 10,000 points races on the banked track.

Something I've noticed is that bearings are made differently than they used to be. Today's bearings are roomier inside. They have some play side to side and, as a result, are ready to roll right out of the box.
