XD-15 Ceramic Bearings and Bottom Bracket
Speed. It is ultimately why we ride. If you want to make your bike faster, more reliable and virtually maintenance free in all conditions, look to the XD-15 bottom bracket. Precision ground and USA made at the Enduro Bearings facility in California, the XD-15 combines cryogenically treated nitrogen steel races with Silicon Nitride Grade 3 ceramic balls in a proprietary process that results in the ultimate high performance bearing setup. Find out why Bike Radar reported the XD-15 “Hands down, the best bottom bracket we have ever tested”. We are so sure that you will love these bearings we offer an unlimited 2 year bearing and race warranty.
440C Stainless Bearings and Bottom Bracket
For Cross, Mountain, or rainy muddy environments, 440C stainless steel can be a great choice to cut down on maintenance and weather the stormy rides to come. This material will not rust or corrode, and to help them last, we use a 4 mm diameter ball that has +50% mass compared to the competition. We also offer this bearing in Angular Contact design especially for Bottom Brackets to stand up to the axial loads from pedal forces.
ZERØ Ceramic Bearings and Bottom Bracket
Proven time and again in World Cup race conditions, ZERØ Ceramic bearings are the ultimate race day weapon. Silicone Nitride (Si3n4) Grade 3 balls roll on Black Oxide races ground to a mirror finish after receiving Magnetite and Cryogenic treatments for hardness and longevity. ZERØ ceramic bearings feature the roundest balls you can buy without a military license and with virtually undetectable rolling resistance, they are closing in on the magic “zero” resistance wattage number. Double silicone VV seals protect the bearings regardless of weather and are lighter and more flexible than rubber, and are the lowest drag seal available. ZERØ bearings get more email and blog feedback than any other model we make citing a dramatic improvement in rolling speed.
Ceramic Hybrid (CH) ABEC-5 BB Bearings and Bottom Bracket
Ceramic bearings are not only here to stay, they are becoming the standard. When carbon fiber was first introduced, there was some doubt, but now every bicycle in the Tour de France is made of carbon fiber. This is the case for ceramic bearings, and the CH bearings are an excellent choice of entry into the technology. ABEC-5 tolerances and LLB seals with Graphite Nylon retainers are premium features that are not available on our competitor’s Ceramic Hybrid bearings at 2 or 3 times the cost. Oversized ceramic balls and cryogenic treatment of the ABEC-5 races ensure long lasting, smooth rolling bearings at great value.
Angular Contact (A/C) ABEC-5 Bearings and Bottom Bracket
For the ultimate bottom bracket bearings, and for many hubs, these are the best bearings available for speed, balance, and longevity. Because they utilize a large surface area design, the load from all the balls is shared equally at all times, spinning faster than any radial bearing where only 30% of the balls may be taking the load. A patented Enduro Bearings design, they may be serviced just as any other bearing with no special tools needed. Perfect for disc brake wheels where you need to remove all wheel play. Just remember, the RED color seal side is the loading side; don’t BLACK out! Also now available in ceramic for 2015.
