The quality of the bearings of an inline skate is variable and has a huge effect on your performance, depending on your goals. Bearings are responsible for the smoothness and ease of rolling of your wheels. A higher quality bearing will achieve higher speed with less effort and maintain that speed for longer.
ABEC or ILQ bearings are generally rated with a number, varying from 1 to 9. The higher the number, the larger the ball bearings and will allow a higher speed. For recreational use, it is generally recommended to choose bearings with a minimum rating of 5.
Some other manufacturers use the "precision" scale to rate bearings. These are generally top quality bearings. In ascending order of quality, we find Titanium, Swiss and Ceramic.
