The History of RockStar
Time is on Your Side.
Here at Rock Star Bearings we have taken our time to figure out not only the best way to deliver customers a quality skate bearing, but we’ve applied some local secrets and personally invested ourselves to assure that each bearing exceeds factory expectations. We also realize, through our own commitment and years of dedication to skateboarding that it can be costly to keep your wheels rolling. To minimize the cost to the customer we have taken the appropriate steps to bring you the finest bearings at a competitive price.
Here’s how it works:
When we order the bearings from the manufacturer we request them lightly oiled before they are shipped. This tiny step keeps them from rusting with in the time frame they are shipped to us in New York. Once the bearings arrive, we strip them from their generic factory lube by applying a concentrated citrus biodegradable solvent, place them in hot water and send them through our drying process. Once they are dry we apply our secret weapon. A dry oil mixed and created by a team colleague in New Jersey, which is designed to resist dirt and debris making the overall life of the bearing longer. After they are lightly re-oiled we apply our own very own custom RSB shield and spin each and every single bearing to assure process is complete and up to our standards. Once they pass our QC inspection, they are packaged and sent out to your local skate shop.
The end result is a new and improved skate bearing, double polished racers, stronger yet flexible nylon retainer, our secret dry oil, made with care right here on the East Coast. What sets us apart from other skate hard wear companies is the time and dedication that we have personally invested to bring you the highest grade bearing at the lowest possible price.
