Seismic Tekton Ceramic Bearings

Compared to even the finest steel bearing balls, ceramic balls have several remarkable advantages that justify their higher cost. They’re significantly lighter and lower in friction, so they accelerate faster and roll further at a higher speed, even with little or no lubricant. They’re so hard and strong that they crush dirt, debris, and even rust, which keeps the steel raceways clean and polished. They dissipate heat better, so bearings (and wheels) run cooler. They’re also rustproof, so they last longer even when ridden in wet conditions. They come with a price tag, but that's why thispatented self-aligning bearing system made the Official Downhill Speed World Record – 80.83 mph by Mischo Erban!

TRUE: Broader flanges mean self-alignment that’s better than ever. No other system keeps your bearings this straight. TIGHT: Refined construction allows for tighter assembly tolerances, which means less torsional play. SWEET: Precision-machined, color-anodized flange “cap” is press-fit to the bearing body. Simply gorgeous. SWIFT: Truer, tighter bearings means wheels that roll faster, corner with more grip and control, and slide with minimal chatter!

Seismic® Tekton bearings feature wide, flat contact surfaces at the ends of integral half-spacers. Now larger and color-anodized, the broad flanges square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels – correcting more than ever for flaws in bearing seat levelness and spacing / axle diameter and straightness. Self-straightening: Prevents bearings from sitting or rocking out of alignment better than any other system. Self-supporting: Protects bearings from internal stresses that accelerate wear.Tighter assembly tolerances mean less torsional play within the bearing body, while the patented Tekton self-alignment system minimises torsional play in relation to the axle. The two features combine for faster and more precise roll; more consistent wheel contact and grip while cornering; more predictable slide release and hookup; and longer wheel and bearing life. Now assembled with advanced dust-resistant ball retainers to keep your bearings cleaner for longer – without the added friction of a second seal. Other features include: top-grade P4 steel balls, black outer casings, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic, and high-end Japanese Kyodo grease. Construction meets or exceeds all requirements for ABEC-7 rating. NOTE: The broad Tekton flanges may not fit hub-less streetboard wheels with old-style, oversized bearing supports, which sometimes leave the wheel’s central hole smaller than the flange (15mm in diameter). Use Tekton LITE bearings for wheels of this type.
