General info – Most skateboard bearings are made of steel and will have 6-7 ball bearings. 

The quality of bearings varies from brand to brand, as a general view the more expensive the better quality.  As your progress with skateboarding try out a variety of bearings and you will notice a difference in speed, quality of the ride.  Why is this, well expensive bearings tend to have better sealing, more ball bearings, and a better-quality metal.

  

Ceramic. If you are looking for a smoother ride use ceramic bearings, they are way more expensive but produce little friction and don’t expand in the heat. Higher quality materials and don’t require as much maintenance. They contain a higher number of bearings too, it's up to your preferences and budget of course.
