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.
At Go Project they believe that blading is blading, regardless of how you like to do it. Go Project hardware is designed to the highest quality for advanced skaters. We make products specifically for rollerblading, with focus on wheels and bearings. Go Project is based in the United Kingdom
At Go Project wain component responsible for the grip, durability and rebound is the outer ‘tyre’. Our urethane compound has been formulated with the highest understanding of wheel chemistry
Precision – The hub of the wheel is manufactured with incredible precision so that your bearings, spacers and wheels work together with maximum efficiency. Use with Go Project bearings and spacers for the most energy efficient roll.
Bond – The smallest disconnection between the hub and the tyre can greatly affect the wheel’s performance. Our urethane is designed to hug our hub tight and never let go.
We don’t list a durometer (hardness) because there are too many variations between different wheel manufacturers and compounds to make this relevant as a universal measurement. The wheel is softer than an aggressive wheel and harder than a normal recreational wheel. Combined with the small core this gives a fast ride with plenty of rebound.
