BENEFITS OF USING CERAMIC HYBRID BEARINGS

 

Hybrid ceramic bearings are made using steel inner and outer races, a PTFE cage, rubber seals and ceramic balls. Using ceramic balls instead of steels balls has several known benefits, so we have listed a few of these below:

  • Ceramic balls have a 100% increase in rolling contact fatigue in comparison to steel.
  • Ceramic hybrid bearings can last between 2-5 times longer than steel or stainless steel bearings.
  • The ceramic balls are actually more durable than steel balls, with their micro-structural make-up.
  • The balls are lighter and smoother, aiding bike performance.
  • Ceramic is also corrosion resistant, helping it to last for longer when exposed to outdoor elements.
  • Low adhesion and friction mean that hybrid bearings can perform well, even when poor/little/no lubrication is used.
  • Low rolling and sliding frictions allow for greater speeds and more power.
  • Low heat transfer from friction
  • Ceramic is also non-magnetic, reducing the chances of them becoming damaged by an external source.

HYBRID CERAMIC BEARINGS FAQ’S:


Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYBRID CERAMIC AND FULL CERAMIC?


A: Hybrid ceramic bearings have steel races and ceramic balls. They are slightly lighter than steel bearings, only because of the weight difference of the balls. They roll faster than the best steel bearings because the balls are smoother, rounder, harder and more uniform in size.

Full ceramic bearings have both ceramic balls and races and are lighter, due to the ceramic rings in which the balls ride. Full ceramic bearings also roll faster than steel bearings due to smoother bearing races, and they are more durable and less sensitive to moisture and require next-to-no lubrication.

Q: WHY ARE HYBRID CERAMIC BEARINGS POPULAR?


A: Hybrid ceramic bearings are popular due to their extreme wear resistance, reduced weight and need for lubrication, resistance to cracks, foreign particles and corrosion. If you’d like additional information, please contact us.

Q: CAN YOU HELP ME TO FIND THE RIGHT SIZE?


A: Yes, simply give us a call and we’ll advise on the best bearings to use for your requirements.
