6ix Ball Pro has six big steel balls of larger diameter, rather than seven balls used in most standard 608 bearings. Thanks to the larger balls, our raceways are deeper which gives you tighter tolerances that translate into greater acceleration, higher top end speed and greater strength and durability.
Our bearings feature a Removable Rubber Shield that allows for easy maintenance, greatly reduced friction, and has none of the annoying rattling noise from regular metal shields.
We got away from metal retainers and chose High Speed Nylon Ball Retainers which generate less friction, allow you to maintain your forward momentum better and also rids our bearings from the annoying rattling noises of metal retainers. Another great advantage of Nylon retainers is that we have one less piece of metal to rust.
The new 6ix Ball Pro comes packed with our PRO Ultimate + Speed Lubricant, which means that your bearings will be race ready out of the box.
