Bike bearings - maintenance-free, robust and light!

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.

  • Lubrication-free and maintenance-free
  • Resistant to impacts and shocks
  • Corrosion-free and dirt-resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Cost-effective
  • Wear-resistant
  • Long predictable service life

iglidur® bike bearings successfully in use in the bicycle industry

Bike riding is environment-friendly, healthy and in. The range of different types of bicycle on offer is now very wide: from cargo bikes, which no longer transport goods but take the children to nursery school, to racing bikes for sport or in the city and mountain bikes for the adrenaline kick in leisure time.

igus bike bearings make agile e-cargo bike low-maintenance

The company chike was looking for suitable components for an innovative, spring-mounted tilt chassis that would make their e-cargo bike just as agile as a normal bicycle. igus provided the perfect solution: igubal rod end bearings are used on the track rods, iglidur plain bearings on the transverse control arms and in the tilt lock. In contrast to metal solutions, motion plastics ensure a virtually maintenance-free continuous operation, are light and cost-effective.

Constant performance on the trail, resistant to shocks, mud and dust

The manufacturer of premium mountain bike components Crankbrothers needed a solution for their pedal bearings. Resistance to dirt, a reduction in weight and a long service life were the main aspects. Thanks to plain bearings made of the material iglidur JB, the company was able to achieve an eight times longer service life compared to the previous solution and reduce the weight. The bearings from igus are insensitive to dirt and can be easily cleaned without compromising on performance.
