Its a bearing with dust covers to keep out grit and grime. Usually spin super nice and last fairly long

I'm on the vital legit list!

Thanks but the hub I'm getting doesn't have precision sealed, just regular sealed bearings, does that mean that they won't spin good?

What hub are you getting?

And they'll spin fine. Not as good as a sealed hub though.

As long as you maintain it well enough, it'll spin & last quite well.

both are the same thing, its just a fancy way of saying sealed

I'm not buying a separate hub, I'm buying a complete that just has regular SEALED bearings on the front and back hubs.the kink liberty sexton 2015, check it out and tell me what you think

precision=very small tolerance when machined
bearings are by nature precision machined because otherwise they wouldnt spin at all

I'm an idiot & my mind somehow didn't see the "sealed" after "Regular sealed bearings" for some reason, thought he meant unsealed. Fuck haha.



But yeah precision sealed & sealed are the same thing.
