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
raceways clean and polished. They dissipate heat better, so bearings (and
cooler. They’re also rustproof, so they last longer even when ridden
in wet conditions.

black outer casings, removable rubber-coated
steel seals with

grease. The inner race is stepped underneath the seal to resist contamination,
and it’s stepped between the bearing and the flange to save
