i've been skating for round-a-bouts 13 years now. ad i've learnt aot.
The ABEC of a bearing these days doesn't make you go any faster, the higher the ABEC the smoother the bearing is to ride.

wheels do efffect skating for aggressive the best sizes are the bigger sizes.

the lighter the frames thesmoother and faster the skates frames DO effect speed. i've found that cores, mooks & bullets seem to be the fastest. i'm currently skatin sum mooks 1.9 an they're the smoothest iv ever skated.
i hope i've helped
