Do you need ceramic bearings in carbon gravel wheels? Jul 07, 2021

For many riders, the first concerns might be to improve aerodynamics or reduce weight on carbon bike wheels, while friction is usually an overlooked factor.

Currently most of bike hubs are with regular bearings made from stainless steel, while our ProX 98DB disc hubs are equipped with ceramic bearings.

The greatest advantage of ceramic bearings is lower rolling resistance. Because ceramic bearings are rounder, smoother and with more uniform size than traditional ones.

In that case, the friction will be reduced and that can contribute more energy to the wheels while riding.

A ceramic bearing is also harder than steel bearings (up to 30%), which improves durability, and they will not rust which requires less maintenance.

Why ceramic bearings hubs?

- Rounder, smoother and with more uniform size to reduced friction.

- Harder than steel bearings which improves durability.

- Less maintenance(don’t rust), ideal for the riding throughout the year, regardless of the weather.

- Affordable price on our ProX 98DB hubs with ceramic bearings.

In our carbon gravel wheels series, the rims provide 28mm/33mm/44mm with hookless/hook options.

The wider inner width of 21mm~23mm will fit 700*30C-50C tire, and help you to conquer the rough terrain with confidence.

All of the carbon bike wheels are hand-built by skilled and professional wheel builders, to make sure them with standard roundness, lateral and center tolerance and better precision.
