Smile General question about speed skates.

I'm not a speed skater but I had a curiosity question.
I don't know if there is a thing called a "high end" speed skate.

But if someone was wearing or racing on a pair of expensive/high end speed skates what type of bearings would you typically find in their wheels?

And would these bearings be 7mm or 8mm or other?


Thanks,

Larry O

Yes there are high end speed skates. Priced, usually 1200 for boot alone up to 2400 for a full custom inline skate package. Bearings are usually Swiss or Ceramics.

8mm
