The bearings I'm testing have Silicon nitride balls.
Im guessing the really hard stops and skids you do is the most axial force a skate bearing could sustain, so thats why you are a good tester for strength/longevity of a bearing?

I dont know the physics calculations, but it would be interesting to find out the force difference between a big air park jump landing, and a slip stick friction skid on a bearing, then compare that to calculations in a modelling software for material limits for a bearing.

Im hoping those micro bearings work out, i REALLY like Scotts phantom wheels.
