Bones Swiss Ceramic Shield Color
« on: May 26, 2018, 07:56:43 PM »
Hi Pals
Did Powell change the shield color on the Swiss ceramics ?
I’ve had them and the shields were black and now I see they’re grey.
Has me tripped out if one is not legit?
Any info is appreciated.
Thanks

I agree. Thanks. I do see other pics with black shields as well so it’s confusing. Maybe the grey are newer and a rebrand?

The Bones Swiss Labyrinth uses black shields. Im always used to the blue shields cause I ride the Super Swiss Six.

Yeah it’s weird. Even Tactics is listing them with a black shield—like mine have. I’m beginning to think Powell changed the shield colors.

yeah they are grey now. i had to replace shields since I've had the same bearings for 7 years now. it was actually hard to find shields online.  i clean them every few months and had to replace shields because of that. color doesn't bother me but the ceramics definitely worth every penny. if they ever blow out i will buy again

Thanks Carter
So yours were black shields?
You’ve noticed they changed them?
