KwiK Swiss Nitride Bearings
Utilizing precision Swiss-made hardened chromium steel alloy balls and lightweight friction-resistant Delrin retainers, the races of the KwiK Swiss Nitride bearings - the surface where friction is created with alloy balls - are coated with a thin coating of Titanium Nitride, a durable chemical-resistant compound that will not chip, dissolve, or otherwise degrade even during the most extreme skating conditions. The Titanium Nitride coating finishes the races of the KwiK Swiss Nitride bearings in a beautiful metallic gold appearance and also strengthens them to produce the fastest, longest roll available today.
Paul Riedell and his wife Sophie founded Riedell Shoes Inc. in Red Wing, Minnesota more than 70 years ago with one goal in mind - to produce and offer only the finest quality skates available in the market. Paul desired to make skating available to people of all ages and abilities by creating comfortable and affordable skates that still incorporated the same attention to detail and quality found in every Riedell product. As time has gone by, Riedell Shoes has continued to re-invent its product lines and hire only the most skilled and professional employees in the hope of achieving the very same perfection that inspired Paul. Through extensive knowledge of skate fitting and advanced comfort and performance technologies, Riedell Skates has assembled the most complete and sophisticated line of roller and figure skates in the industry. Whether you are interested in a comfortable skate that accentuates your style, or you are looking to gain a competitive edge, Riedell has the skate for you.
