If you are a cyclist looking to make your bike lighter and help you boost your cycling performance, easily make it possible by upgrading to Ceramic/Hybrid Bearings.
TBB Ceramic and Hybrid bearings are specially designed for bicycle related applications such as wheel hubs, bottom brackets, and chain tensioner pulleys, etc. They have been proved to reduce riders pedalling watts.
We use G5 grade ceramic balls, to meet up to highest cycling requirements and bearing clearance which can meet up to a smooth and durable longer life time.
Ceramic Balls have many advantages compared to Steel Balls. Bearing with ceramic balls can increase bearing performance and extend bearing life when used on high speed application or in a chemical, vacuum or high temperature environment.
We offers Si3N4/ZrO2 Ceramic balls for use in loose ball wheel systems, such as wheel hubs.
- Features of Ceramic Balls
- Much lighter weight (Si3N4 ball only 40% weight of steel ball).
- Lower torque needed for pedal.
- Lower thermal expansion, excellent mechanical property at high temperature.
- Works in low lubrication condition.
TBB can provide ceramic balls with dia.: 2.38mm(3/32″), 3.175mm(1/8″), 3.969mm(5/32″), 4.763mm(3/16″), 5.95mm (15/64″), 6.35mm(1/4″), etc.
Ceramic Ball Materials include: Si3N4, ZrO2, Al2O3, SiC, etc.
