I can agree.with the POTENTIAL of this nano lubricate to do a it says. It holds merits, as they are not the first to claim increased bearing life, and reduced friction due to the effects the diamonds have on surfaces. Just look at timken, they have a anti wear coating available that does wonders.

I think their coatings plus that lube would be a meal ticket to 1 set of bearings for life.

peanut butter, crunchy. more rolling resistance equates to better resistance training, and smells good in your wheels! JKG!!

all kidding aside... though I did experiment with tea tree oil once for fun, bearing ran okay, but oil broke down quickly since tea tree is not synthetic.

I generally run ceramics with drop of light oil. Bones spd cream / TK gel on all others.

My recommendation: SKF LGLT 2. Extremely high speed bearing grease, premium quality, oil-based synthetic grease using lithium soap. Low viscosity oil delivers excellent lubrication performance. Low friction torque and low power loss.

I skate only outdoors and an looking for something to last a while and protect the bearings.

Thanks

Default Heavier oil

I use 90w gear oil. It doesn't smell wonderful, but it's got a nice high viscosity and it was recommended by a mechanical engineer in a web article I read a few years back.
