Seismic Tekton LITE Bearings (Set of Eight)

Rest assured, even those these TEKTON LITE bearings are the most affordable in the TEKTON range, they still offer incredible performance and are great examples of Seismic's dedication to engineering. Need further evidence these are worth your hard-earned cash? Here's what Seismic say:

Seismic® Tekton LITE bearings feature flat contact surfaces at the ends of integrated half-spacers. The flanges square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels – correcting for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness. Your wheels roll faster with better control, while the bearings last longer and stay quieter.

Other features include: top-grade P4 steel balls, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and high-end Japanese Kyodo grease. Construction meets or exceeds requirements for ABEC-7 rating.

The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination, and it’s stepped between the bearing and the flange to save weight. On the side opposite the flange, the inner race extends 0.5mm to form a thin integrated washer. No bearing spacers or axle washers required!

Product Description

    Details

    The bearing behind the Official IGSA Downhill Speed World Record! Tektons should not be confused with bearings that have their inner races stretched on one side to form a simple half-spacer. Sometimes called “industrial” bearings, these have been used in pre-assembled skateboards since the 1970s, and more recently for racing, but they’re still vulnerable to misalignment. The diameter of the Tektons’ flanged contact surfaces is up to 35% larger compared to bearings coupled with floating spacers, and up to 23% larger compared to bearings with stretched inner races. This translates to exponentially better correction for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness. “I have total confidence in their ability to push extreme speeds – 80mph and beyond!” said Erban. Tekton bearings, rated at ABEC-7, are precisely dimensioned to provide superior alignment safeguards in all modern high-performance skateboard wheels. Features include steel balls, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and a proprietary lubricant combining both oil and grease. The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination, and it’s stepped between the bearing and the flange to save weight. (A set of Tektons weighs the same as a set of conventional bearings with simple floating spacers.) On the side opposite the flange, the inner race extends 0.5mm to form a thin integrated washer.
