Fighting contamination

When it comes to transmission, there’s a need to lose as little efficiency as possible, and that’s where steel bearings fail. A bearing that can’t protect itself against contamination will soon start eroding and during this process, the efficiency loss will increase. With ceramic bearings – ball bearings as well as roller bearings – contamination inside the transmission is not as big a threat.

Whilst the transmission is constantly exposed to contamination from wear on splines and sprockets, a CeramicSpeed Bearing is made of materials able to withstand contaminants, maintaining a smooth bearing race, even under severe conditions.

A CeramicSpeed Bearing is known for its extremely low friction, which is one of the reasons why you’ll find our bearings in high-end bicycles all over the world - in a sport where every saved watt counts. When applying these low-friction bearings in a transmission, we create the ability to transform as much efficiency as possible into real power.

Additionally, our bearings live longer than any other bearing on the market, no matter the impact, a CeramicSpeed Bearing upgrade in the transmission will extend the service life of the bearings and transmission as a whole.

A CeramicSpeed Bearing can last up to 10 times longer than a standard steel bearing.
