We believe that Quality is of utmost importance when choosing your wheel bearings, surly ceramic wheel bearings for motorcycles with best quantity compared. But that does not mean you need pay the earth for them.
Not only is quality important, but you would want your bearings to last as long as possible, which is why we always supply "2RS" style nitrile rubber sealed bearings. These offer better resistance to water and road dirt ingress than metal shielded "ZZ" types, and keep that all important grease in place and contaminant free.
Then let us explain why ceramic wheel bearings for motorcycles are better than other kinds wheel bearings.
Full Ceramic Bearings have both ceramic balls and races. They are lighter, due to the ceramic rings in which the balls ride. They roll faster due to smoother bearing races, and they are more durable and less sensitive to moisture and require little, or no, lubrication. Ceramic bearings are harder than steel bearings or Stainless Steel Bearings; they are more durable, lasting anywhere from five to 20 times longer. This also equals an almost zero risk of bearing seizure. Consequently, since they also do not rust, they are less sensitive to moisture and lubrication, and some even come with no lubricant at all.
Ceramic balls and races are also stiffer than steel ones, resulting in less flex in the bottom bracket. Finally, ceramic bearings are lighter, because ceramic is less dense than steel (silicon nitride, for instance, has a 60 percent lower density than steel). When combined with special seals and optimized lubrication, the friction in ceramic bearings can be 20- to 30-times lower than steel bearings with standard seals and lubrication.
Ceramic Lightning Seal Motorcycle Wheel Bearing Kits are specially designed for off-road or excessively dirty operating environments. These bearings are maintenance free and lubed for life. The heavy duty rubber seal provides extra protection against the harshest elements. Ceramic Lightning bearings have ceramic balls, with stainless steel races and retainers. Ceramic hybrids are lighter, capable of achieving higher RPM's and sustaining higher operating temperatures than traditional bearings.
Our Company is proud to announce the new Lightning Bearing Technology (LBT) line of ceramic motorcycle wheel bearings. Ceramic by its nature is lighter than steel by about 2/3 the weight; it is harder than steel when it is in ball form and it is virtually frictionless because it is non-porous. Full ceramic and ceramic hybrid wheel bearings are particularly well suited to both competitive and recreational motorcycle applications for which belong to High Speed Bearings.
Our Company has been an industry leader in ceramic bearing technology for over 15 years. Reducing rolling resistance and conserving energy has been our hallmark. We offer a full line of full ceramic & ceramic hybrid bearings for Motorcycles.
