CH 608LB - Ceramic-Hybrid, ABEC-5 radial bearing (C3 clearance) - 8mm x 22mm x 7mm -
ABEC-3 Radial Bottom Bracket bearing featuring 52100 High-Carbon Chromium alloy races paired with grade 10 Balls with 90% fill, high-pressure, water-proof grease.
ABEC-5 Radial Bottom Bracket Bearing featuring 52100 High-Carbon Chromium alloy races paired with grade 5 Balls with 90% fill, high-pressure, water-proof grease. Designed specifically bicycle applications, the LLU/LLB seal combination on these bearings utilizes a more protective LLU seal facing outward, towards the elements, to reduce contamination from water or dirt, while the lighter-contact (less seal-drag) LLB seals facing inward keep the grease where it belongs.
440C Stainless Steel
Not all stainless steel is created equal.
Enduro only uses 440C stainless steel balls and races to provide long life and superior corrosion resistance in applications and environments that may be less than ideal. 440C has the highest strength, hardness, and wear resistance of all the standard 440-series stainless alloys with high carbon content. As expected, it is also the most expensive of the 440 series alloys and requires multiple rounds of heat treatment and cryogenic treatment to achieve its superior mechanical properties. Though stainless steel has 20% less load capacity and is slightly softer than our standard 52100 chromium steel used in most of our bearings, stainless steel is an excellent alternative for use in wet conditions, if you wash your bike often, or where sweat can be a problem.
Enduro stainless bearings all carry a full two year anti-corrosion warranty.
Ceramic-Hybrid Radial Bottom Bracket Bearing featuring 52100 high-Carbon Chromium alloy races paired with grade 5 Silicon-Nitride Ceramic balls with 90% fill, high-pressure, water-proof grease. Si3N4 Ceramic balls reduce bearing wear and increase bearing life by eliminating steel on steel contact within the bearing.
Enduro Zero Ceramic-Hybrid Radial bottom bracket Bearing featuring Black-Oxide treated 52100 High-Carbon chromium alloy races paired with grade 5 Silicon-Nitride Ceramic balls with 90% fill, high-pressure, water-proof grease. Si3N4 ceramic balls reduce bearing wear and increase bearing life by eliminating steel on steel contact within the bearing. Black oxide/magnetite treatment to the races provides an extra level of corrosion resistance and extended worry-free performance.
Radial bearing generally used as a hub bearing for some older QR hub designs and can be used as a pivot bearing though the MAX-type version of this bearing is better suited for suspension use.
The Enduro line of bearings are available in high-carbon chromium steel, 440C stainless steel, ceramic-hybrid and XD-15 with ceramic or stainless balls. Our bearings are always engineered with deepest groove races possible to accommodate the largest balls possible and feature dual-lip seals that ride in a micro-groove creating a full labyrinth to provide superior protection against the elements.
