Synopsis are a bearing brand from Los Angeles that have been making a bit of a buzz on the internet for a while, and we’re proud to be the first to stock them in the UK.
These are their standard “Blue Rays” bearings – effectively a Bones Reds equivalent in terms of performance. If you’re just looking for a good, sturdy bearing without breaking the bank, these are a good choice.
However, where they really shine is what comes in the box. Every pack of Synopsis Blue Rays bearings includes replacement axle nuts1, a full pack of eight speed washers, bearing spacers (which you really should use!) and, most importantly, a little bottle of bearing lubricant. No matter how thrashed your setup, these will get you rolling smoothly again – and keep you rolling smoothly for a long time.
1: We highly recommend you use an axle rethreader to clean up your axle ends before replacing damaged axle nuts; a heavily damaged axle is just going to strip and ruin the new nuts.
