Aire Velo Bearings range of steel, stainless steel and ceramic (Si3N4) balls can be used anywhere on the bike but are usually used either in the headset or the wheels. Read more further down the page or browse through products below.
The steel and stainless steel balls are supplied as Grade 10 balls which refers to how precise the ball surface & dimensions are. Most bearings used within the industrial sector have balls specified as Grade 100 so Grade 10 is a very precise ball. The ceramic (Si3N4) balls are supplied as Grade 5 balls which is the highest level of precision you can get for loose balls so they will probably be the smoothest running part on your bike.
All sizes and materials of balls that we offer are supplied in packs of 10 due to their size & minimal cost, including grade 5 and grade 10 balls.

Ball bearings are a type of rolling element that use similarly sized balls to maintain the separation between the bearing races. The bearing balls themselves are the smooth, spherical balls that can be found within ball bearings, although they have other uses too.
Bearing balls come in different grades, including 3, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 200, 1000 and 2000. The smaller the number in the grade, the higher precision.
