  4. 4. 0706 Low friction makes the wheels spin Low friction matters and it is not a myth anymore. It is all about the riding experience, where friction plays a natural part in the way your bike performs. Paying attention to the small parts on your bike gives you the opportunity to save energy or ride faster, without compromising your energy levels. The all-important feature, low friction, becomes your competitive advantage. Marginal gains make a significant difference. There are several parts on your bike, which can help you ride faster while using less energy. When activated, these almost invisible parts can change forever the way you ride. Low friction in your bottom bracket, pulley wheels, hubs and chain, will make you ride smoother and faster, at the same time achieving a better biking experience. When you start riding with CeramicSpeed, your power savings are real. We don’t like wasting energy, either yours or ours, so the gains we promise are the gains delivered. ©KoruptVision The CeramicSpeed Oversized Pulley Wheel System (OSPW System) is a proof of innovation and performance specially crafted for the cycling world. The new OSPW System sharpens the dragless spin of your drivetrain by smoothly guiding your chain to achieve the minimum friction possible. The CeramicSpeed 17-tooth OSPW System increases your power savings by at least 2.4 watts. This unique system has been developed for optimal gains and delivers unrivaled frictional power savings. Available for Shimano 10s and 11s road, the oversized pulleys are produced from a lightweight aluminium material. Each oversized pulley wheel is fitted with lightweight CeramicSpeed Bearings and an aerodynamic cage, made from a special polyamide and carbon fiber compound. The OSPW System combines the lowest friction with unmatched lifetime. Tested by the independent US test laboratory, Friction Facts, the results came out with the undisputable 60 % less frictional energy losses compared to the most used 11s standard pulleys on the market.

  5. 5. 0908 ©IrmoKeizer Longevity pays off Why settle for performance only? Whether you are a professional or an amateur, we know riding is a lot about speed. Improved speed and performance for that matter, also means consistent attention to your bike maintenance. The way you care for your bike and the components you choose to use, impacts riding performance. Low friction performance alone does not mean the best bike experience - longevity plays a vital role as well. Combining these two things into one product is what gives our product development the upper hand. From the very beginning both factors have been an integrated part of the CeramicSpeed philosophy. Without compromising quality, we decided to break the norm. Road and lab tests proved that your CeramicSpeed bearing upgrade lasts between 3 to 5 times longer than other bearings on the market. Thanks to our know-how, CeramicSpeed Balls and carefully chosen high quality components we achieved a unique combination of lightweight, low friction and unmatched longevity. Like most things, your bike and your CeramicSpeed products require maintenance. All bearings do. The difference is that with proper maintenance you will often find that CeramicSpeed Bearings achieve a longevity of over 5 times longer compared to your old bearings. Our up to 6 years warranty is a promise to that. “Mountain bikes are exposed to extreme conditions such as rain, dust and mud. This is very tough on our gear and normally we need to replace bearings on a regular basis. This is not the case with CeramicSpeed Bearings; with normal maintenance the bearings just keep spinning and spinning.” Bart Brentjens 1st Olympic Champion Mountainbike, Team BETCH.nl Superior Brentjens MTB Racing Team The CeramicSpeed Bearings, found inside our pulley wheels, virtually eliminate the drag normally associated with standard pulley wheels. CeramicSpeed Pulley Wheels guide the chain in its ideal line while performing smooth and precise shifting. At the highest RPM, pulley wheels on a road bike spin 4-5 times faster than the bottom bracket (depending on gear ratio and speed). Therefore, low friction is extremely important in your pulley wheels. The pulley wheels are available for all brands in both aluminium and titanium versions. The titanium version is also available with coated bearings. CeramicSpeed Pulley Wheels combine the lowest friction with an unmatched longevity. The pulley wheels have been tested by the independent US laboratory, Friction Facts, and came out with the lowest friction available on the market. Detailed information is available on ceramicspeed.com. Pulley Wheels
  6. 6. 1110 The CeramicSpeed UFO Chains are racing chains which deliver the lowest friction on the market.

  7. 7. 1312 When looking into the technology behind the huge gains and the extreme lifetime, it all starts to make sense. It is not hard to develop bearings with low friction, but combining it with the world’s best lifetime, requires quality components, know-how and craftsmanship. With over 15 years of know-how and expertise, this has become a reality. All bearings are handmade in Denmark from the very best components and are repeatedly checked throughout the production process; this is what we call craftsmanship. The most critical link that determines the performance and lifetime of any ceramic bearing is the ceramic balls. Ball qualities differ greatly. Impact strength, smoothness, roundness, brittleness and hardness are all key factors that determine the ceramic ball quality. These parameters of a CeramicSpeed Ball are unmatched, and the tests speak for themselves. “MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung is very proud and happy to have CeramicSpeed as a partner. Their technical know-how and drive to produce the best low friction bearings make for smoother rides in any kind of condition. As a team focussed on the progression and the development of the sport, it is good to have partners that share the same goals.” Veit Hammer Head of Marketing and PR, Team MTN-Qhubeka Visit ceramicspeed.com for more detailed technical information.

It gives you security in making the right choice when you decide to upgrade your bike. The best choice of components, the manufacturing process and the test program are essential when delivering a reliable product to the market. CeramicSpeed Bearings are handmade, and are inspected several times throughout the production process. All products are thoroughly tested before being launched. This starts with internal testing on our own equipment, after this, they are subject to real-life tests by a group of professional athletes. It’s only after this, and when the bearings have passed all our tests, that we are ready to offer reliable products to you. Lifetime – high quality ceramic bearings
 Entering the cycling world back in 2000, very little was known about the lifetime of ceramic bearing products. The consensus was that their primary benefit was the reduction in friction. Unbeknown to the masses of the cycling world, lifetime of high-quality ceramic bearings is one of their most significant features. Laboratory testing has demonstrated that CeramicSpeed Bearings have a lifetime of 3-5 times longer, and even up to 10 times longer, than the widely used standard steel bearings. A claim backed up by our warranty program of up to 6 years. Like all world class components, CeramicSpeed Bearings provide optimal performance results when correctly mounted and maintained. To guide you through the process, detailed videos are available on ceramicspeed.com. Your security for a reliable product The match of bearing components and the extreme quality of the CeramicSpeed Balls allow us to offer you a valuable warranty program. Depending on the product you buy, you will get up to 6 years of warranty. Check out the details on ceramicspeed.com. High quality gives you a long warranty “As a mechanic, it is obvious that the CeramicSpeed products are built with the greatest precision. With these bearings, we rarely see corrosion or contamination in the bearings and if we do, we just clean and re-grease the bearings and they spin again. Normally, we change bearings several times during a season but CeramicSpeed Bearings easily run for two consecutive seasons. Try to spin a crank. You really feel the difference with the extremely low rolling resistance, but that’s not it. CeramicSpeed combines the low friction with an extreme lifetime and we save time on maintenance – an optimal solution.” Alejandro Torralbo Pulido Mechanic, Team Tinkoff-Saxo ©Bettiniphoto.net
