CeramicSpeed is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of ceramic bearings and the first company to introduce ceramic bearings to the cycling industry.
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 the brand’s efforts are easily seen in the high quality products they develop, documented performance, and place CeramicSpeed at the forefront of the business.
In 2015, CeramicSpeed acquired UltraFast Optimization Chains, a subsidiary of the independent lab Friction Facts.
All CeramicSpeed bearings are handmade and the chains optimized by hand in Denmark.
