Bearings : How much difference

so I was thinking about what a difference certain bearings made in aggressive skates.

 

If I replace my mtb and road wheels' bearings with the best out there, will it go faster?

Inline skate wheels rotate very fast, bearings make a difference, Bicycle wheels do not rotate fast at all.

Have too agree with obree.

 

The comparison in rolling resistance/weight/cost just dont add up for me and its largely due to the lower rotating speed.

 

At that low RPM there isnt mush diff if any - other than price.

 

Ceramic will last longer but at R 50.00 a bearing I dont mind replacing them.

 

Like Powerbalace bands, if it works for you, go for it!
