Street skateboarding is a combination of skateboarding asphalt, steel and concrete interrupted by moments of fright, terror, and indecision. A special bearing had to be developed to accommodate a wide range of ages and styles of skating.
One that would hold together in any condition, without giving up speed or load capabilities of the MOC 5 Street. The metal shields replaced the buna seals to reduce the possibility of damage to the buna seal during assembly.
A small oil hole ( Pat.Pend ) in each shield was put in so the bearing could be cleaned and oiled. Tolerances were changed to accommodate the new environment and the Oust MOC 5 Street was complete. It's the fastest and toughest bearing in the industry for street.
All OUST Bearings come lubricated from the factory with MET-OL Synthetic speed oil. All MOC Series bearings should be lubricated every 6 hours of use with MET-OL Synthetic speed oil. When skating slalom, down hill racing or distance racing the bearings should be lubed every 2 hours of racing.
If no MET-OL is purchased along with the bearings, the proper lubrication maintenance schedule with MET-OL is not followed, and/or other lubricants are used, the OUST bearing warranty will automatically be VOID. Also if the bearings aren't purchased directly through Oust bearings then no refunds will be given. This matter must be taken up with the company where the original transaction was made.
All bearings are sold packaged 8 bearings per pack.
