Seismic’s Tekton bearings have long been a staple in both engineering and technology for skate bearings. Their self aligning design accommodates and corrects for irregularities in the bearing seat and the axles. The Tekton update improves the design with larger flanges, improved dust resistance and a colorized integrated spacer for extra style!
Developing Seismic’s Tekton Bearings
More than two years of development went into the Tekton bearings. Wide, flat contact surfaces on the integrated spacers align and stabilize the bearings inside the wheel. This interface prevents the bearings from becoming unaligned due to issues with bearing seat spacing or levelness and axle diameter or straightness. The inner race is stepped where it meets the seal to prevent contamination from dust or debris and the integrated spacer is stepped to reduce weight.
Other features include ABEC-7 rating, steel balls, nylon retainers, black outer casing, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and a proprietary lubricant combining both oil and grease.
