More about Full Ceramic Bearings

Full ceramic bearings are highly suited for bicycles that are used for track and velodrome riding. With their lightweight properties and super hard exterior, they are perfect for those of you that compete in bike races.

The full ceramic bike bearings you see before you have ceramic (ZrO2 – Zirconia) inner and outer races, along with a PTFE cage, ceramic (ZrO2 – Zirconia) balls and PTFE seals, which helps to make the bearing much lighter, faster and energy efficient. The cages and seals are made in PTFE to maintain their super low weight.

Because full ceramic bearings are considered to be ‘self-lubricating’, they do not come greased like other bearings do. Although, if you were planning on using them on a road bike, it might be worth giving them a light layer thin oil.

Why use Full Ceramic Bearings?

There are a number reasons why you would consider using a full ceramic bearing. We have listed a few of the key reasons below:

  • Where high loads, high speeds and extreme temperatures need to be considered.
  • Where longevity with little maintenance is needed.
  • Ceramic is actually around 2/3 weight of steel, resulting in reduced bearing weight.
  • Ceramic is non-porous, non-magnetic, non-corrosive and lighter than steel.
  • Ceramic balls are also harder than their steel counterparts.
  • Because they are non-porous, they have virtually no friction, meaning they are capable of spinning faster than steel balls.
  • Because less lubrication is needed, the ceramic ball bearings tend to have a longer life.
  • The thermal properties of ceramic are better than steel balls, meaning less heat is generated at high speeds.
  • Ability to operate at extreme temperatures. From as low as -85°C up to +900°C.

Where the need for a non-corrosive, non-conductive/magnetic or non-porous material is needed, full ceramic bearings are ideal.
