Stainless Steel Headset Bearings

The headset on your bike is a key component, providing a rotating interface that allows the fork and the head tube of the frame to work together. Within a headset, you will find bearings that make it possible for your handlebars to rotate freely as they do. Poor or damaged bearings may have an impact on the performance of your bike, which could also put you (as a rider) at risk. For this reason, it’s important that you look after your headset and replace the bearings at the end of their life span. We offer a variety of different sized headset bearings made out of stainless steel, helping you to find the components you need.

Stainless Steel Bottom Bracket Bearings

The bottom bracket is another key component on your bike, connecting the crankset to the bicycle and allowing it to rotate freely. If it weren’t for the bottom bracket bearings, the spindles and cranks wouldn’t be able to rotate in the manner that they do. For this reason, it’s important to look after the bottom bracket bearings and replace them when they are worn out or damaged. Thankfully, you will find the stainless-steel bottom bracket bearings you are looking for online via the Aire Velo online store.
Stainless steel hub bearings

The hub is the central part of the wheels, found at the front and back of the bike. Using the spokes, the hub connects to the wheel rims, whilst the axle is positioned through the middle of the hub. Hub bearings make it possible for the wheels to spin freely, playing a key role in the functioning of the bike and how it is ridden.

Hub bearings made from stainless steel can be purchased online from Aire Velo Bearings. We supply bearings for the front or rear hubs on your bike, with sets available for both. There is also a wide range of sizes and styles to choose from, including steel, ceramic and hybrid ceramic.

As well as providing a range of hub, bottom bracket and headset bearings made out of stainless steel, we also supply stainless steel pedal bearings and stainless-steel bearings for BMX bikes and mountain bikes.

Frequently Asked Questions Stainless Steel Bearings

What are stainless steel bearings suitable for?

Stainless steel bearings are suitable for a wide array of sections found on a bike, such as the wheels, hubs, bottom brackets, pedals, and headsets.

Is stainless steel corrosion resistant?

Yes, the corrosion resistance of stainless steel is attributed to the thin passive film that forms spontaneously on its surface in oxidising environments if the steel has a chromium content of 10.5%.

Do you have every size of stainless steel bearing available?

We have a wide range of stainless-steel bearing sizes available to our customers. If you’re looking for a specific size and you’re struggling to find it on our website, get in touch with our experienced team.

Should I service my wheel bearings?

If your bike wheels are rough when you spin them around, this usually means it’s time to service them. Problems tend to occur from wear and tear in the bearings through ingress of water, dirt, and grime. Wheel bearings may also wear out over time, this can also introduce play to the hub making the wheel rock side to side on its axle. Through servicing your bike, you can trust that it will be in good working order and will also perform to its maximum capacity.

What's the best stainless steel or chrome ball bearings?

Stainless steel bearings are more expensive but they will run at higher temperatures than chrome steel bearings and are also resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel bearings will cope with up to 300°C with the right lubricant while the load capacity of chrome steel bearings falls rapidly above 150°C.
