CeramicSpeed Bearings

CeramicSpeed bearings from Denmark feature rolling balls made of a ceramic material. The CeramicSpeed balls are constructed of Grade 3 Silicon Nitride, the highest grade for hybrid ceramic bearing, which meets or exceeds NASA engineering standards.

Using Ceramic Speed bearings in hubs, bottom brackets, and pulleys will reduce friction. By reducing the coefficient of friction, you can accelerate faster and maintain speed with less power input.

Benefits of ceramic bearings:

  • Ceramic bearings have 10% less friction than steel bearings.
  • Bearings are extremely wear resistant because ceramic material is much harder than the hardest steel bearings.
  • Silicon nitride balls are 60% lighter than steel balls.
  • Safe operation even when using low amounts lubricant, which reduces the viscous drag friction from lubricant.
  • When used with special seals and lubrication, the friction in ceramic bearings can be 20-30 times lower than steel bearings with standard friction seals and standard lubrication.

Wheelbuilder uses Ceramic Speed hybrid ceramic bearings for all high-end applications. Compared to all steel bearings, they have lower friction, lighter weight and longer service life. They are also less susceptible to failures caused by dirt, dust and poor lubrication.

Ceramic bearing upgrades can be made to the main hub body as well as the freehub body. Ceramics provide the most significant gain when used in the main hub body because these bearings carry the primary rider loads.

If purchased with a custom built wheel/wheelset, labor to install ceramic speed bearings is free. There is a $20 minimum labor charge for all other installations.

If you are unsure your hub type or unclear on which ceramic bearing to order, please email us for assistance.
