NHS unveils Bronson Speed Co Bearings

For the last 35 months NHS, Inc. has been researching, testing and prototyping with the goal to completely reinvent a skateboard product that has lacked any real innovation for over thirty years - the bearing. Introducing Bronson Speed Co. - Next Generation Bearings, Designed for Today's Skateboarding. Bronson Speed Co. bearings are the fastest, strongest, longest lasting, longest spin skateboarding bearing ever made. The bearing has been reinvented.



Edit: Updated Youtube link.

You see that's cool and all but what we really need is more balls in the bearings so we can have more balls while we're skating. 1+1=2.

funny that they spend time and money engineering a better skate bearing only for kids to "pop the shields" because they think it makes them faster

On my 3rd week with these.
Highly impressed, really smooth and fast with no signs of slowing so far.

Does any one know when they'll be dropping?  Because I was about to buy a set of Swiss but I may hold off to try these.

Still made up of the same basic components. Different cuts on plastic and microceramicvoodogrooves?

Nothing innovative? Unlike .

There's a cigarette brand called Bronson, and they're the worst shit ever.

I call that bullshit... The little holes in the inner race of the bearing will make friction and with time it will fuck up the small balls, and with the preasure of skateboarding the small balls will start to dig the hole even more making it unstable... I think for a bearing hold up just cant have a non smooth inner race.

I got my hands on a prototype set that I've been skating the last month, they feel like bearings.

that air tight wrap is bullshit. if my bearings get better after 2 years, they can survive a little air while theyre on the shelf.

If they're $30, you could buy two sets of Reds for the price of one of these. Do they last that much longer or roll that much faster to justify the price?

All the comments above is why I stay on SLAP. Fuckin jokes... A bunch of smartness you all are. HAHAHA... But, I agree.

I saw the video and think its a bunch of gimmicky bullshit. Like the lube holes or whatever the fuck they're calling them. Come on, really?? It's like when soap or deodorant companies come out with "hydrating microbeads". Like, really?? Beads that are gonna keep my skin from drying up during the day?? Lube pockets in my bearings that are gonna keep my bearing lubed and help them get faster and faster??

GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!!!!!!

I got some hand-me-down Super Reds like 4 years ago and they're awesome. No, I don't pop the shields off, unless they're already coming off by themselves.

NHS didn't reinvent shit.

The name sucks. They don't have any pro or am backing their shit. Would never buy. The logo is even terrible.

Only good thing they got is a way to save your bearing by making a designated side to press down on when putting them in your wheels. Now that's an idea!!!
Shopping at Zumiez.....

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

I like that their logo looks like an auto-parts sign.

Could of came up with a better name than Bronson. They didn't even need this, NHS with their Independent Bearings were already good. Just going to work the same like other bearings out there.

Got A set beginning of June, still just as fast and have no plans of trying another bearing any time soon.

What happened to "Abec 3, 7, 9..." and whatnot? I fell for that shit hard when I was a kid. I have a set of Swiss Super 6s that have lasted me 6+ years, granted two of them are Reds now.
