This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in February of 2019. If you like a fast and smooth ride, then make sure you don't neglect your skateboard's bearings, which corrode over time and should be changed regularly. You'll want a high-quality set, because they take a lot of punishment from heat and friction and the strain you put on them when you nail a hard landing. We included both steel and ceramic options in a wide range of prices. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 23, 2019:

Bones has been the acknowledged market leader for a long time, and for good reason: they make great products. But they are far from the only player in town. We included some Bones options on the list, but also some high-quality options from lesser-known brands like Neal and Yellow Jacket because of their strong and growing reputations for excellence.
