“Black Ceramic” IONIC FLUX is a specially formulated oil with ultra low viscosity, designed for competitive skaters using hybrid ceramic bearings. As a result of polarized molecules that bond to steel, this oil forms a protective friction-reducing tribolayer on the internal steel raceways of your ceramic bearings. The result is maximized performance, improved oil adhesion, and protection against wear and corrosion. Coupled with Ionic Flux’s nano-technology additives, this oil polishes internal raceways and mends micro-cracks to reduce rolling resistance and extend bearing life.
The nano-particles in this lube create a restorative effect by polishing away internal steel surface deformities, which reduces rolling resistance and increases the performance and life-cycle of your bearings under the harshest of downhill, distance, and street skating. This low viscosity oil is combined with additives that purge dirt and moisture, and contains corrosion inhibitors to battle all the asphalt and weather elements your bearings encounter.
Downhill, Distance, Free-ride, and Street
GO FASTER – Ionic Flux is designed to reduce sliding friction and rolling resistance generated by metal-to-metal contact and heavily used bearings—meaning you go faster with less holding you back.
ROLL LONGER – Skate further than before by reducing re-lube intervals. Ionic Flux molecules retain oil on the surface they bond to, which prevents oil seeps that occur after hard skating over long distances.
EXTEND BEARING LIFE – Any heat generated from friction at high speeds will usually burn up regular oils or cause them to thin out, leaving your bearings damaged.
The molecular structure found in our lubricants does not break down but instead continues to protect your bearings under the most extreme temperature conditions.
SKATE ANYWHERE – Rain or shine, skate in every type of weather. We have incorporated additional additives in our lubricant to battle moisture, purge dirt, and inhibit corrosion.
RESTORE YOUR OLD BEARINGS – If your bearings have faced the elements and rusted, the nano-technology in our skate lube can bring old bearings back to life. With a proper clean and lube, our lubricant has been known to remove rust and un-seize bearings that have corroded.

Our story started off when Boris one day found himself talking to me about new novel lubricant technologies being developed for industrial purposes throughout Europe. I asked him for a little more detail, and suggested a commercial application in bearings. He said, that sounds like a great idea, and Ionic Flux was born. Today, we are using a proprietary technology never before used in action sports which forms the basis of our product.
