igus® lubrication-free and maintenance-free solutions for motorbikes & scooters

Lubrication-free, save weight and increase service life

Are you looking for wear-resistant components for motorcycles, motor scooters or other scooters? Do you want to replace metal sliding bearings and rolling bearings and therefore benefit from better quality and potential for improved productivity? igus offers a great selection of lubrication and maintenance-free plastic bearings that can meet precisely those requirements and are characterised by high load capacity and a long service life. In many cases, performance can be improved by a factor of up to 10 in comparison to other, metal types of bearing. iglidur plain bearings are deployed, for example, in suspension forks, brakes, throttle valves and at other places on motorcycles and motor scooters.
