These bearings came with the Accel package, but I don’t know if they are part of same family of companies or not. In any case, these bearings performed quite well, and are rated at ABEC7, for what it’s worth. I’ve never seen them for sale but the non-gimmicky packaging would lead me to believe that they should be reasonably priced. The thing that seals the deal however, is the inclusion of spacers and speed washers, which everyone should be using. If you think you are saving weight by not including them on your setup then you’ve got issues that run deeper than any weight savings could help. Besides, spacers and washers have been clinically proven to provide more speed. I can’t link to the study because I just made that bit up, but if you think about it, it only makes sense. Spacers also protect the integrity of the bearings and the the bearing seats in the wheel during impact. So unless your wheels never leave the ground you should be using them. Thumbs up on these Movement bearings.
