Q: Does a Higher ABEC Rating Mean Less Noise?
Update Time:2019-08-09

A: Not necessarily. While some evidence might suggest the correlation, it has not been proven. This is because, as mentioned above, the scale doesnt take into account important factors such as material quality, smoothness of the rolling surface and ball precision. Lubricant plays a big part in how quiet a bearing system will be, so its very difficult to determine which is the greater influence.
