Enduro offers a full line of steel and ceramic bearings for almost any application. From headsets to hubs, wheels to suspension pivots, bottom brackets to jockey wheels...If it spins, Enduro Bearings is there. Click on any of the links below to learn more about our different offerings.
BEARING 1: ABEC-3

BEARING 2: ABEC-5
Grade 5 Chromium Steel Balls with high precision within 5/1,000,000" round. These are militirary level specification, used for precision equipment. R-64 hardest, f the highest grade. Vacuum de-gassed process for the purest chromium alloy steel, hardened to R-62, exteremly tough and very durable. Polished to a mirror finish for ABEC-5 precision and noiseless movement. The nylon graphite retainers are virtually frictionless while providing constant lubrication.

BEARING 3: MAX
Designed specifically for suspension pivots, Enduro Bearings pioneered MAX type bearings almost 20 years ago for bicycles to address the challenges associated with mountain bike pivots. These bearings have 35-40% more load capacity than standard radial bearings. We accomplish this with a special design where the maximum number of balls are inserted into the bearing. The race grooves are deeper on these bearings for more lateral support for the twisting and multiple forces associated with mountain bike pivots. LLU seals give maximum protection against the elements, while keeping the 90% fill of Almagard Extra High Pressure Grease inside.

BEARING 4: ANGULAR CONTACT
Enduro produces Angular Contact (A/C) cartridge bearings specifically for hubs. In standard radial bearings, only 3 or 4 balls make contact during the load, at any given time. In Angular Contact (A/C) bearings, ALL balls are engaged and spread the force over a larger surface area, to decrease friction and minimize wear. Wheel play can be adjusted out of the hub providing a more stable wheel, and making it easier to adjust disc brakes while still spinning freely.

BEARING 5: STAINLESS STEEL (440C)
Enduro Bearings manufactures some series of bearings using 440C stainless steel balls and races. This material provides maximum corrosion resistance in applications and environments where critical. Depending on the application, they are designed to ABEC-3 or ABEC-5 tolerances. Stainless steel has 20% less load capacity than the 52100 chromium steel, used in most of our bearings, but with far superior corrosion resistance.
When the rain won’t go away, and your bicycle is more often used as a boat rather than a land craft, you may want to consider 440C stainless steel bearings. While a little softer than chromium bearing steel, 440C stainless steel is a good alternative in constant wet conditions, or where sweat becomes a problem such as headset bearings. Enduro Bearings uses LLB type seals and CRC Marine Grease in these bearings to additionally water proof against the elements.To know more about 440C Bearing, please click here.
BEARING 6: CERAMIC BEARINGS
Enduro produces 3 types of Ceramic Bearings - XD15, Zero and Zero Hybrid.
type 1: XD-15 CERAMIC
XD-15 ceramic bearings have it all - hands down to the speediest and longest lasting ceramic bearing available in the market. Nitrogen steel is the secret, precision machined and ground to ABEC-5 tolerences, these bearings spin with the very least resistance.
type 2: ZERO CERAMIC
Proven time and again in World Cup race conditions, the ZERO ceramic bearings are the ultimate race day weapon. Oversized Grade 3 balls rolls on races which are ground to a mirrior finish after receiveing Magnetite and then Cryogenic treatments for hardness and longevity. More durable and with even lower rolling resistance than any 2RS bearings.
type 3: ZERO HYBRID CERAMIC
When carbon fiber was first introduced, there were many riders still on stell bikes in the Tour de France, but now every racing bike is made of carbon fiber. This is the case for ceramic bearings and the CH bearings are an excellent choice for entry into the technology. ABEC-5 tolerances and LLB seals with Graphite Nylon retainers are premium features that are not available in any Enduro competitor's ceramic hybrid bearings at 2 or even 5 times the cost.
