Bont Swiss Mini Bearings 8mm
Bont has partnered with Jesa for these high end mini bearings.
Jesa is the largest specialty bearing manufacturer in Switzerland and was established in 1969.
Sold as a set of 16.
- Exceptionally fine polished bearing track surface
- Incredibly precise balls
- Lightweight plastic cages for lower rolling resistance
- The steel is extremely strong which helps the bearing keep its shape when under load
- Jesa increased the radial clearance providing slightly less 'total contact patches', reducing drag.
- Made in Switzerland
Bont bearing adapters can be used, if you want to run a mini bearing in a wheel that was made for a larger 608 bearing.
The benefit of using a mini bearing and an adapter rather than a 608 bearing is that you can create a much lighter set up with better acceleration.
This product requires cylinder spaces, not the normal self centering spacers.
(If you don't currently have wheels with mini hubs or you have never run mini bearings before then you might need to purchase bearing adapters.)
Size: 8mm (168) MINI
Fit: Most current roller skates and roller derby skates have 8mm axles, some older styles or Roll-Line plates come with 7mm. Most inline skates use 8mm bearings. If you're unsure, contact us.
