Skanunu Bearing Cleaner & Lube Logo Skateboarding skateboard Review

Remember the day you bought your board and ran your hand across the wheels to give 'em a spin?

It seemed like they would spin and spin for an eternity! Give that a try now. Not so much, eh? Maybe they spun for a few seconds and you heard a gritty sound as they slowed to a halt. Sounds like it's time for some bearing maintenance... And Skanunu has just the thing and it's quick & easy! Skanunu Really Wet and Slippery Bearing Cleaner & Lube

You probably check your wheels for flat spots and wear, but a lot goes on inside your wheels. No one wants to be bothered with this sort of crap, but what if you could get your wheels spinning like new in just a few seconds? That sounds a hell of a lot better!

Whether you're bombing hills or doing flat-ground technical tricks, pure bearings will always give you an edge. Get some lube in there!

Add a Few Drops of Skanunu Oil

Next time you're at your local skate shop, ask for Skanunu Bearing Cleaner & Lube. Just put a few drops around each of the 4 sets of bearings - on both sides. Now give that wheel a spin. Big difference!

That came from just a few drops of bearing oil. Imagine if you actually did a thorough cleaning!

For quick-lubes or thorough cleaning, Skanunu Bearing Cleaner & Lube benefits all the internal components in your bearings (Shield, Inner Race, Bearings, Retainer, and Outer Race). It coats all the metallic parts of the bearing leaving a protective coating that repels dirt & water and acts as a long-lasting non-drying lubricant to keep you rolling fast.

Inside Your Skateboard Bearings

The three worst things that can degrade your skateboard bearings:

  1. DIRT - Your bearing shields help, but dirt still gets inside the bearings causing them to slow down.
  2. WATER - Even if you don't ride through puddles, moisture can get into your bearings, mix with the dirt and suddenly - you've got sludge in your wheels.
  3. TIME - Dust, dirt and moisture are always working their way into your bearings whether you're skating, chilling or sleeping.

Skanunu Really Wet and Slippery Bearing Cleaner & Lube helps combat all these elements. A few drops of oil per bearing will work wonders and make your bearings roll smooth and last longer. The simple solution is to care for your bearings like any other part of your board.

If you've never cleaned your bearings before, take them apart and give them a thorough cleaning. Skanunu provides info on their web site and we have a primer on bearing maintenance as well. Make sure you know what you're doing before taking apart your bearings.

Still Not Convinced You Need Skanunu Bearing Cleaner & Lube?

Lets get real-world for a minute...
Imagine pouring a bucket of marbles on a hardwood floor - say, at Town Hall where they're dragging their feet on the new skate park construction. People are bound to go down as they slip 'n slide. You might even snare the tight-wad who won't approve the funds or the zoning guy who hasn't signed the permits. And don't forget that nasty Administrator who always says the Mayor is too busy to talk to a bunch of skaters. Bam! Down they go!

Now picture the same scenario, but this time toss some oil in the bucket with the marbles. Now you're destined for some serious ass-busting fun.

Your bearings are much like the marbles. Being round and hard, they roll naturally, but adding some Skanunu Really Wet and Slippery Bearing Cleaner & Lube will make 'em roll like greased lightning!

Bearing Cleaning Tips

  • After lubing or cleaning, wipe away any excess oil.
  • Never wipe bearings with paper towels, napkins or tissues. They leave crap behind in your bearings.
  • Always use a cotton cloth to wipe away excess. Your sister's panties or Dad's work shirts are perfect.
  • Bearing shields protect your bearings. Don't remove them even if Pro Skaters think it's cool - Pros get new bearings for free.
  • Be sure you get the right kind of oil. Not the kind you put in your car and not that soupy-crap that spills every time you pour it in the lawn mower. And it's definitely not the "oil" you find in your parents bathroom! That's for... well, that's for something else that you really don't want to think about (especially on Mother's Day). You need Skanunu Really Wet and Slippery Bearing Cleaner & Lube.
