Vivace is Italian for "lively" and "vivid". It is pronounced vee-VAH-chay. Vivace bearings are fast, high performance stainless steel bearings which will bring your yo-yo to life!

Specifications:
Brand: Vivace
Material: Stainless Steel
Ball material: Ceramic
Profile: CONCAVE
Lubricant: DRY
Grade: ABEC 5
SIZE: R188 'C' .250 x .500 x .187 inches (inside x outside x width)
Fits: Many YoYoJam and YoYoFactory yo-yos. This is the same size as the YoYoJam large Speed Bearing, the YoYoFactory Large Center Trac Bearing, and the Dif-e-Yo Dif-e-Yo KK Bearing.

Note: ceramic hybrid ball bearings offer higher spin speeds with a lower noise and longer bearing life.

Notes: The higher the ABEC number, the more precisely the bearing is manufactured. An ABEC 5 bearing will spin faster (and more quietly) than an ABEC 1 bearing. These bearings are shipped dry (no oil or grease). You must lube these before use. We recommend using YoYoJam thin oil.

These bearings are similar but not identical to the Dif-e-yo konkave bearings. Please note that we respect the konkave bearing design Patent held by Dif-e-yo in the USA and we will NOT sell these bearings to customers in the USA under any circumstances.
Not for sale to the USA

    Awesome Bearing

    Long sleep time, very smooth (ceramic balls do make a difference). Exactly what the description says, Abec 5 / G5 balls , no marketing hype. Mirror polish on the outer race where the string sits. Other sellers are charging three times as much for a bearing of this quality. This bearing has 8 ceramic balls.

    one of the best bearings i have tried

    Posted by Phil2571 on 28th Mar 2017

    After buying quite a few different types of bearings 10 ball, 8 ball golden, chromed and stainless these have by the longest sleep time the are smooth and quiet.

    I find this bearing really good when practicing as the outer race is smooth and the spin time is crazy now this bearing is really unresponsive.

    After a while they get noisy just a wash with dish soap or ISO and a proper dry with a hair dryer or compressed air and there back as good as new.

    My preferred shape is concave so I will be replacing all my 10 ball and golden bearings with these hybrid ceramic ones really worth getting in my opinion.
