TRAMPA's STREET BOARDS (Carveboard & Longboard) use special R6-2RS Bearings to fit the STICKIES or other Longboard style wheels that then fit to the TRAMPA Mini Spring or TRAMPA's Extra wide 12FIFTIES Longboard Trucks.
To handle the extra forces a wider Axle may suffer (potentially fitting an electric motor will transform the forces even more so), we choose to increase the thickness of the Axle to a new Imperial size of 3/8ths of an inch, which translates in Metric measurement size of 9.525mm. So in order to fit regular Longboard wheels to the Mini Spring Trucks or the New TRAMPA Extra Wide Longboard Trucks you will need to squeeze in the special R6-2RS Bearings
Precision made R6-2RS TRAMPA Bearings are polished to an internationally recognised ABEC-7 quality. (ABEC 3-5 is recognised as the industry standard). ABEC 7 polishing gives you a super smooth & super fast ride, prolonging top end roll speeds for longer.... :-) Available with either RED, BLACK, WHITE or GREEN CERAMIC sidewalls, all of which are embossed with the TRAMPA logo to prove quality, the R6-2RS Bearings will squeeze to most regular sized Longboard wheels currently on the market.
R6 tells you the bearing standard size whilst 2RS means the bearing has 2 Removable Sidewalls. The Removable Rubber sidewalls 'seal the single row of lubricated ball bearings within the Chrome Steel housings, protecting them from the elements such as dust & moisture, maintaining maximum performance to the board & rider for as long as possible'. The rubber sealed sidewalls are easily removed so that you can service & clean your bearings on a regular basis, again maintaining high performance all of the times!
These R6-2RS Si3N4 CERAMIC BEARINGS are our best offering yet! Using P4 Chrome Steel for both Inner & Outer Raceways & 7x Si3N4 CERAMIC Bearings mounted in a low friction Nylon cage, they will certainly enhance your ride ahead offering less resistance & therefore increased roll-ability compared to regular Steel bearings...
Ceramic Bearings are famed for being less resistant steel bearings which is what makes them so spin fast.... Having less resistance enables Ceramic Bearings to roll faster & further from the same point when directly compared to Steel Bearings. If your using electric power on the back of your board, with Ceramic Bearings fitted all around then you will accelerate faster & your riding range will be bettered for sure....
Fitted with Removable 'Vibrant GREEN' sidewalls with the contrasting BLACK TRAMPA lettering, the Ceramic bearings are easy to clean & service whilst being bright Green the R6 2RS Bearings are easy identifiable as being the fastest, so if you in a race with a guy with Green Bearings, then watch out as he may already have the advantage over you if you don't...!
