Seismic Tekton 6-Ball Bearings - Set of Eight

Seismic Tekton 6-Ball Bearings - Set of Eight

Serious Bearing design from the Masters of Speed, Seismic - This is the bearing behind the Official Downhill Speed World Record – 80.83 mph by Mischo Erban! So what do you get with 6-Ball Bearings? Breakthrough self-aligning design corrects for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter and axle straightness. The 6-Ball Tekton is constructed with fewer, larger balls than ordinary 608Z bearings. This means less ball-raceway surface contact area, less friction, quicker acceleration, higher speed, and longer life. Seismic® Tekton bearings feature wide, flat contact surfaces at the ends of integrated, custom-machined half-spacers. The broad 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.The Tektons literally block themselves from sitting or rocking out of alignment, so they stay straighter than any other bearing system ever. Your wheels roll faster with better control, while the bearings last longer and stay quieter. Other features include: advanced 6-ball construction, 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.

    Details

    The 6-Ball Tekton is constructed with fewer, larger balls than ordinary 608Z bearings. This means less ball-raceway surface contact area, less friction, quicker acceleration, higher speed, and longer life.

    TRUE: Broader flanges mean self-alignment that’s better than ever. No other system keeps your bearings this straight.
    TIGHT: Refined construction allows for tighter assembly tolerances, which means less torsional play.
    SWEET: Precision-machined, color-anodized flange “cap” is press-fit to the bearing body. Simply gorgeous.
    SWIFT: Truer, tighter bearings means wheels that roll faster, corner with more grip and control, and slide with minimal chatter!

    Seismic® Tekton bearings feature wide, flat contact surfaces at the ends of integral half-spacers. Now larger and color-anodized, the broad flanges square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels – correcting more than ever for flaws in bearing seat levelness and spacing / axle diameter and straightness. Self-straightening: Prevents bearings from sitting or rocking out of alignment better than any other system. Self-supporting: Protects bearings from internal stresses that accelerate wear.

    Tighter assembly tolerances mean less torsional play within the bearing body, while the patented Tekton self-alignment system minimises torsional play in relation to the axle. The two features combine for faster and more precise roll; more consistent wheel contact and grip while cornering; more predictable slide release and hookup; and longer wheel and bearing life.

    Now assembled with advanced dust-resistant ball retainers to keep your bearings cleaner for longer – without the added friction of a second seal. Other features include: top-grade P4 steel balls, black outer casings, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and high-end Japanese Kyodo grease. Construction meets or exceeds all requirements for ABEC-7 rating.

    The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination. On the side opposite the flange, the inner race extends 0.5mm to form a thin integrated washer. No bearing spacers, axle washers, or World Record budgets required!

    NOTE: The broad Tekton flanges may not fit hub-less streetboard wheels with old-style, oversized bearing supports, which sometimes leave the wheel’s central hole smaller than the flange (15mm in diameter). Use Tekton LITE bearings for wheels of this type.
