Bones Wheels humble beginnings start in 1974 with George Powell. Powell began manufacturing wheels in Santa Barbara, CA from there revolutionizing how the modern skateboard wheel is made. Named after the milky white color of the wheel Bones was created. Powell worked alongside Skate legend Stacey Peralta of the Z-Boyz to form the brand Powell Peralta. Powell stayed along from 1978 to 1991. Since then Bones Wheels has continued to make genuine wheels and bearings. Bones is currently Distributed by Skate One alongside Powell Peralta, Bones Brigade, Mini-Logo and Aera.
