Go Project Freestyle bearings are manufactured with great strength making them perfect for side-load and leverage heavy skating disciplines (sharp turning, freestyle, slalom, big wheels etc), They run with extremely low torque and are permeated with an ultra light oil.
They use SIX Chrome Steel ball bearings instead of SEVEN for reduced friction. Each ball is marginally bigger than regular bearings making these perfect for a heavy vertical load-bearing sport like inline skating.
While Go Project Freestyle bearings are comparable to an ABEC 7 rated bearing, Go Project does not use the generic ABEC scale to rate bearings because of its irrelevance to the specific tolerances imposed by inline skating.
The quality of manufacturing and materials far surpass the importance of a rating based upon ‘revolutions per second’. The Freestyle bearings simply have a Speciality Rating of 4.5/5 which represents their performance when used as a skate bearing.
Here at Go Project we like to think we are taking product endorsement in the inline industry in a new direction.
Instead of having a 'team' of skaters, we enrole 'guest skaters' who partake in product endorsement PER PRODUCT. Each time we manufacture a run of products with a skater's name associated to it we pay them UPFRONT for their endorsement of that product run.
This pays the skaters their dues and allows us the freedom to work with new skaters on a regular basis.
All profits from the first production run of bearings go to the skaters.
