i did some research and i dont like them and heres why..
-the peek bearing cage sits loose and sloppy between the inner and outer race.
-peek material has a high wear resistance but it is very brittle.
-they have a abec 5 rating,you want abec 7.
-these are still too new so no ones knows how they will hold up in the long run.
go for the tko ceramics and be done with it, for a few extra $ you will get peace of mind.
