Product Description

When you want the closest thing to zero bearing drag in your DT Swiss 240-hubbed wheels, or your Reynolds, or your Enves, or your Syncros, or any number of brands to go faster than they already do, pull the stock bearings and install this set of six CeramicSpeed Ceramic Bearing Coated Race kit into the innards. CS calls this kit DT Swiss-1 Coated.

The bearings, two for the front hub, two for the rear hub, two for the cassette body, are designed for DT Swiss 240 road hubs. These hubs are utilized by Enve, Reynolds, Syncros, and many other wheel manufacturers because of they are light, strong, durable, and have a great pawl mechanism. The bearings are excellent. But CeramicSpeed’s are better. Much better.

CeramicSpeed utilizes Grade 3 Silicon Nitride balls that possess the best possible surface finish and roundness. In testing, the balls are 400% smoother, 128% harder, and 58% lighter than standard steel balls found in most bike components. They’re more than 100% smoother and 15% harder than standard ceramic balls. The balls are installed into hardened steel races in dust-free clean rooms and then checked again before assembly is complete. Not only is low friction the result, but so is increased bearing life. Like three to five times longer than standard bearings.

If you replace all your bike’s bearings with CeramicSpeed, you could be looking at a savings of 25 seconds in 40km if you’re riding at 48kph. The savings goes up to two minutes if you’re riding at 32kph. Extend that to an Ironman-length ride, and the savings could vary from 1:50, if you’re going 48kph to nine minutes if you’re going 32kph.

Another step they take in assuring the lowest-possible frictional drag is using grease they designed as lubricant. It comes in the bearings and a syringe comes with the bearings as well.

Part of CeramicSpeed’s commitment to having the lowest-friction bearings on the market is keeping up their research and development. That led them to a special metallic coating that can be applied three microns thick on the races. It makes the treated surface 80% harder than hardened steel. In terms of friction, the already low-friction CeramicSpeed bearings with the treatment see friction reduced by over 50%. In terms of service life, these coated bearings last even longer, like over 60% longer, than the standard CeramicSpeed bearings. Better yet, the coating means the races better resist contamination from water, dirt, degreaser, etc. Aka, the risk of bearing failure due to corrosion has been reduced to near zero. They can even run without grease or oil, though CeramicSpeed recommends their blue all-around grease for regular use, and their TT grease for achieving the lowest-possible friction.

The kit comes with the six bearings, seals, grease, and sticker sheet. CeramicSpeed recommends adding grease and mounting seals before installation

This CeramicSpeed DT Swiss 240 Ceramic Bearing Coated Race Kit reduces friction and increases durability to any wheel that features the 240 hub in the middle of everything.
