Robust bike bearings from igus® are a good choice for all applications. They withstand extreme loads, shocks and impacts, reduce the bike's weight and, thanks to the absence of lubrication, are easy to look after and only have to be maintained very rarely. The high wear resistance makes them reliable components, not only on racing bikes but also on much used everyday bicycles.
In pedals, seat posts, suspension forks, derailleurs, brakes and much more – igus® bike bearings have been in use for many years for the most varied of components and by diverse frame manufacturers. You can see some possible uses here:
Bike riding is environment-friendly, healthy and increasingly popular. The range of different types of bicycle on offer is now very varied: from cargo bikes, which no longer transport goods but take the children to school, to racing bikes for sport or in the city and mountain bikes for the adrenaline kick in down time.
The company chike needed suitable components for a new type of spring-loaded tiltable chassis that would make their e-cargo bike just as manoeuvrable in bends as an ordinary bicycle. The igubal® rod end bearings are now used on the tie rods, iglidur® plain bearings on the wishbone and in the tilt lock. In contrast to metallic bearings, they ensure practically maintenance-free, durable operation, are lightweight and cost-effective.
For their pedal bearings the company Crank Brothers was looking for a solution. Resistance to dirt, a reduction in weight and a long service life were the main aspects. With our plain bearings made of the iglidur® JB material, the company was able to achieve an eight times longer service life and reduce the weight. The new bearings are insensitive to dirt and can be easily cleaned without any loss of performance.
