Kogel Ceramic Bearings

Crafting a durable bearing demands perfect balance and deep insight into the materials being used and how they will interact with each other and the outside elements. Kogel understands the principle of bearing balance and is one of the industry leaders in hybrid ceramic bearing durability and performance.

Kogel utilizes Silicon Nitride for its ceramic bearings because the material is extremely hard, wear resistant, and can be manufactured into near-perfect round balls with extremely tight tolerances. Silicon Nitride can also be polished smoother than any metal and the material does not rust or oxidize.

The Kogel races are made out of hardened steel and are polished to a mirror finish, making a perfect match with the hardness of the ceramic balls. Bearing retainers, seals, and greases are also optimized to work as one balanced unit. These properties result in lower friction and longer service life when compared to steel bearings.

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.

There is a $20 minimum labor charge if you would like Wheelbuilder to install the Kogel ceramic bearings into your hub.

If you are unsure of your hub type or what ceramic bearings to order, or would like a quote for installation, please call 626-442-4444 or email us for assistance.
