CeramicSpeed is one of the world’s leading suppliers of ceramic bearings. From our start, as the first ones to introduce ceramic bearings to the cycling industry. The company has grown rapidly, focusing on cycling and industrial applications. We have more than 15 years’ experience in bearings applications, and have developed close relationships with our component suppliers over the years – each of whom is the very best in their field.
CeramicSpeed bearings are based directly on the technology developed as part of NASA’s space program in the 1990s. Today, CeramicSpeed produces hybrid bearings, using top grade Silicon Nitride ceramic balls, which surpass traditional steel bearings in every possible way. With continuous product development, ceramic ball technology has now entered everyday usage, both within industrial applications and cycling. The results of our efforts are easily seen in the high quality products we develop, documented performance, and place CeramicSpeed at the forefront of the business.
In 2015, CeramicSpeed took over the UltraFast Optimization Chains, a subsidiary of the independent lab Friction Facts. These ultrafast chains are meant to enrich the CeramicSpeed product offer for the sports world, and improve the biking experience with yet another innovative product, successfully continuing to save watts.
All our bearings are handmade and the chains optimised by hand in Denmark.
